Pan (2015) – A Revisited Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
It don’t want to see like I’m being overly harsh here but Pan possibly rates as one of the films I’ve least connected with in my long history of watching movies.  And I sat through The Thin Red Line.  Pan is admitably visually stunning but it lacks any cohesion, leaving you feeling oddly hollow. Ye this is as corporate films get.  The Birds Eye Fish fingers of movies.  What’s sad is there is a great idea in here, it’s just so clumsily  put together with dull, flat and noteless performances alongside a script devoid of any wit or charm.  Sadly then this film is worthy of the panning (get it!) the critics gave it.  One to leave.

Best Bit: NOT singing Nirvana thats for sure.  Probably the visuals.

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Avoid

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
A Wrinkle In Time easily jumps into my Worst of 2018 list.  A hour after watching the film I can’t remember a thing about it other than the overwhelming sense of boredom.   The script is seriously lacking, the direction heavy handed and teh over reliance on CGI just criminal.  I agree that in reality I’m not the target audience here and my daughter felt very differently about the film but damn until I can stop talking her to see movies I get an opinion as well.  So in short kids may like it but this is a film I could quite happily never watch again.

Best Bit: Mercifuly short

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Avoid

If You Liked this Try: The BFG, Pan, Ready Player One
