Joker (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Joker (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Let’s cut to the chase…. You can fully believe the hype here – Joker is one of the best films of 2019.  Period.   It’s dangerous, intense and brutal… a game changer of a film that does so much more than I expected it to do.  Playing out like part V For Vendetta part Taxi Driver, The Hangover’s Todd Philips delivers a film that you’d think had been done by a master filmmaker.  Not the guy who delivered some pretty average films.   Joker is stylish but without being in your face and, contrary to the Birds Of Prey trailer that screened beforehand, relies on performance and nuance over flash. Philips is a revelation.  But for all the films expert direction it would be very different without Joaquin Phoenix’s central performance as Arthur Fleck.  He’s mesmerising, edgy and, at least for a time, highly sympathetic. Phoenix must be a shoe in for an acting nomination at the Oscar’s next year. Joker delivers more than it had any right to and become essential viewing in the process.

Phil’s 2019 Preview & Look Back At 2018’s Predictions…

Phil’s 2019 Preview & Look Back At 2018’s Predictions…

Quick Review Year In Review

Phil’s Quick look at what’s wetting his whistle for the upcoming year in films…

2018 once again delivered some great films but mostly it was the Indie movies that did made it.   2019 has the promise to be even more mixed with a bundle of reboots and Disney remakes… so here’s the films I’m most looking forward to in 2019.  And a few that I’d be happy to miss.

 

The Must See’s


Most Excited: 
Toy Story 4
This could be a major bust but Pixar and Toy Story have always been a match made in heaven.  Can this sit alongside one of the best trilogies ever made?  I get the feeling it just might.

 

2. Hobbs & Shaw
The Rock.  And The Statham. In a Fast & Furious Spin Off.  If anything about that sentence doesn’t make you go ‘I’m in’ then you are probably dead already…

 

3. Star Wars: Episode IX
So the ball’s back to JJ to land the end of the Skywalker(less) trilogy.  Whether he can or not will depend on just how he takes the curve balls Johnson delivered and brings them in to make this trilogy feel complete.

 

 

4. Captain Marvel
Marvel’s first female led superhero film could be something really special and judging by the trailer this is a must watch.

 

5. Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
This could see Tarantino return to the form he’s lacked since the early days.  The story, the setting, the cast… are all first rate.  But this will all come down to whether the Hollywood darling can control his worst impulses.  Let’s hope.

 

Bubbling Under: Avengers Infinity War Part 2 (Marvel delivers big as Phase 4 ends), IT: Chapter Two (Part One was amazing), Wonder Woman 1984 (the original was mostly excellent), Frozen 2 (come on!), Glass (Split was great and this could be something else), Godzilla: King of the Monsters (Monsters!  Thousands of ’em), Spider-Man: Far From Home (Marvel + Spiderman = HIT), Joker (I could be wrong here but this looks pretty interesting) , Jumanji 2 (Welcome To The Jungle was great fun), The Irishman (Hopefully it will make it this year!)

 

 

The Must Nots

(Just a reminder of what T6 has to live up to!)

Stinker Of The Year: Terminator 6
It pains me to say it but the Terminator films have done nothing since T2.  Yup Cameron is back (as  producer) and yup it’s reboot territory again but I just don’t see a world where the 6th Terminator film can get anywhere near the form of its classic siblings.


Also Dreading: The Lion King 2019
(the trailer looks like the’ve done a Psycho ’98 here),  Pet Sematary (this doesn’t have an IT feel about it), Dumbo 2019 (I’d love to see it work but Burton’s not delivered in a long time), Pokemon Detective Pikachu (yup not interested), What Men Want (Remake of sorts of What Women Want… say no more), Aladdin 2019 (I’m not anti-Disney but this is yet another film that isn’t needed), X-Men: Dark Phoenix (The last X-Men movie was a total dog),  John Wick: Chapter 3 (Part 2 was a bore), Alita: Battle Angel (Looks pretty bad), Men in Black Spin Off (The world doesn’t need another MIB film)

 

Last Year…


So how did I do last year?

This is the time of the year when I look back at my picks of the good, the bad and the ugly from 2018 and see how close I was (or as it often is the case, how far!)…

 

For best: I tipped   Bohemian Rhapsody, Deadpool 2, Avengers: Infinity War,  The Incredibles 2 & Black Panther as my most anticipated of 2018.  And you know what all delivered one way or another.  Which to be honest is a major first! Okay so Deadpool 2 and Infinity War would never be QUITE the films our mind’s had created.

 

As for the rest? Tomb Raider wasn’t great and neither was Ant Man & The Wasp.  The Predator wasn’t great but it didn’t deserve the bashing it got, Mission Impossible 6  was epic (top 5) and The Happytime Murders again got a bashing that was (for the most part) pretty undeserved.   The Purge: The First Purge  ended up being the worst or the series so far and The Irishman never landed.

 

As for the Stinkers? Fifty Shades Freed ended up in second place behind Cloverfield Paradox, Solo – A Star Wars Story was okay (but little more),  Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom disappointed, Day of The Dead: Bloodline wasn’t amazing but passed the time, Ready Player One was actually really good, X-Men: Dark Phoenix & Scarface didn’t land, Oceans 8 was everything you knew it would be and a little less and  Pacific Rim: Uprising was far better than I expected.

 

So here’s to 2018… see you again next year!
