Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Nativity 2 : Danger In the Manger is one to miss.  Yup even if you liked the first outing (I was NOT a fan) there’s little to enjoy in this seriously bloated and unfunny sequel.  In fact I offer up that with much tighter editing and a much shorter finale (god so much pointless singing) this film would have least had the fact it was short going for it but now, at just under two hours, it doesn’t even have that. My kid liked it but I feared even she was bored by the end.  Watch one of the many better Christmas movies instead.

Best Bit: Tennant is the best thing here by far

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Naturally this wasn’t my first (or even tenth) choice of film to watch this weekend but with a four year old daughter in tow I didn’t have a great deal of choice (12 Years a Slave or Wolf Of Wall Street?).  And you know what?  It wasn’t bad.  In fact, for it’s scant one hour ten minute run time, I was never bored and even found myself quite enjoying it at times.  So it’s no Frozen, but with a good message and it’s heart in the right place alongside some superb voice acting by the always excellent Tom Hiddleston as well as a story by Disney supremo John Lassiter, my daughter was glued to her seat.  What more could you ask?

Best Bit: Tom Hiddleston as future Captain Hook
