Review: The Motel Life (Cinema)

The Review: I love it when the title of a film aptly sums up precisely how thrilling and entertaining the experience of sitting through it is like. Take The terminator, for examples, or perhaps even Twelve Angry Men (and RoboCop) – those two titles tell you what’s going to happen; gear you up for a giddy ride. Then there’s shite like ...

Coffee Town: A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: I’d heard great things about Coffee Town.  It was funny, charming and well written. Smart.  Kooky. Urm. No.  Annoying. A Little smug. A Bit irritating. Occasionally humorous. Often pretentious. Mostly a bit of a chore. So like MOST people in the real world who hand around coffee shops then.  Okay so it had it’s moments but not enough (even ...
