Joe Rogan Strange Times (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Joe Rogan Strange Times (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Joe Rogan is a comedian that likes to push the boundaries.   A UFC/MMA commentator and world famous podcaster, it’s comedy that always drives Rogan and you can tell.  His latest Netflix special Strange Times is biting, funny and crude as he takes on culture, pro wrestling, pot laws, cats and vegans – all to hilarious effect.  Rogan considers this to be his best special yet and he may be right – the material is polished, the deliver on point and the emotion strong.  It may not be to everyone’s tastes (he has been pulled up on certain opinions previously that doesn’t always sit well with the more gentile millennial) but this is one of the worlds best stand-ups on top form, whether you agree with what he says or not.

Best Bit: Vegans

LA 92 (2017) – A Quick Capsule Review

LA 92 (2017) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
LA 92 is hard hitting documentary that looks back at the 1992 LA riots, caused by the brutal beating of Rodney King and the acquittal of those responsible.  National Geographic pulls together archival footage from the riots, the trial and the subsequent fallout. It paints a disturbing and heartbreaking picture of a broken country where class and race were still deadly flash points.  An essential watch for anyone with an interest in modern history…

Best Bit: It stays with you or days

Close but no cigar: Maniac, Better Call Saul, Stranger Things

 

5 – Ozark
The first season of Ozark was a pleasant surprise and will the second series of Ozark about to drop all eyes are on whether it can deliver another killer year. 

 

4 – Jack Ryan
A big budget Amazon TV show, this has the promise to finally realise the potential of this franchise.

 

3 – Fear The Walking Dead 
Returning for the second half of it’s fourth season, FTWD is on a roll. Taking the series in a new direction, it’s now a much better show that The Walking Dead and well out of it’s sister shows shadow.

OMG! It’s a sequel to Sons Of Anarchy, one of the best TV shows of the last decade set in the time frame (which means cross overs!) and featuring Edward James Olmos.  I mean what more could you ask.

Extinction (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Extinction (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Uncategorized

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Extinction is a somewhat odd beast.  It’s frustrating, a little dull and yet at it’s core has a pretty clever central idea that’s never quite realised.  The cast are fine and the direction solid but at every corner you can’t help but notice that the films imagination often quickly hits the limit of it’s budget, often leaving it feeling cheap and unfinished. It’s worth noting that Extinction was dumped onto Netflix by Universal who bailed on the films cinematic release.  So not the worst Netflix ‘original’ but also not the best.

Best Bit: The central idea

Calibre (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Calibre (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Calibre is a cracking British thriller that has several ‘Holy Fuck’ moments and is only stopped from being truly good by a few really obvious twists that  you can see coming from a mile off.  But man the film delivers – it’s so tense and whilst you can see where it’s going (well mostly) the film still surprises and shocks. What’s odd is that I was really torn who to root for because the lines do get quite blurred.  Top film, available on Netflix now.

Best Bit: Deer Hunting.  Bang. Oh. Shit.

Cargo (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Cargo (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Cargo is a different take on the zombie/plague movie that has family at the core of it’s story.  In a seemingly apocalyptic world a man races against time to find safe place for him and his daughter.  It’s a low key film for sure with minimal effects or violence but this more intimate narrative works well and overcomes the films obviously low budget.  It’s tense, clever and uses it’s key moments well.  It doesn’t break any new ground for sure but it’s a worthwhile watch if you like this genre.

Best Bit: Martin Freeman
