Gerald’s Game – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Gerald’s Game is yet another 2017 Stephen King adaptation.  This one sits between the most excellent I.T and the less than excellent (but still not as bad as everyone says!) The Dark Tower. With some strong central performances, a tight story and a nippy run time …

Logan Lucky – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Well this was a pleasant surprise.  After a few years away from directing, Steven Soderbergh returns with a light hearted but fun heist movie.  An Oceans 7/11 (as it’s described in the film) full of rednecks and hillbilly’s.  Look Logan Lucky wont change your life and it …

Justice League – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Justice League isn’t the worst film ever as some critics will have you believe.  BUT it’s also a long way from being good.  DC’s Sniderverse continues it’s desire to make some of the best superhero of all time as dull as possible with the introductions of …

Paddington 2 – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Paddington 2 is a wondrous family film.  It’s funny, charming and smart managing to appeal to both kids and adults without resorting to the kind of knowing smutty side jokes that often creep in to appease the adults.  The CGI is great (Paddington is totally believable) …

Happy Death Day – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Happy Death Day is great fun.  It’s Groundhog Day meets Scream and yet another hit for the almost unstoppable Blumhouse Productions.  Yup new ground isn’t broken here BUT it’s a damn entertain romp with a great tone and a career making central performance. Best Bit: Let’s put …

The Dark Tower – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: The Dark Tower took a critical drubbing on it’s release – despite it’s literary pedigree and stellar cast – it didn’t land well.  It also came out within weeks of the vastly super adaptation of King’s IT.  Thing is it’s NOT as bad as you have …

Batman Vs Two face – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Adam West’s final performance as Batman is a perfect summation of his iconic take on this legendary character – fun, silly & charming.  A sequel to last years Batman: Return of The Caped Crusaders, the film adds William Shatner as the titular bad guy who brings …

Wind River – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Wind River feels like a really high quality TV show.  That’s not a dig – far from it, but it you found it on HBO or Sky Atlantic you wouldn’t be surprised.  The cast is really strong and even if the revelations that follow the discovery …

War Machine – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Overall War Machine is a let down.  It’s not a bad film by any means but it lacks the bite that you’d want from a satire on war and politics especially when films like Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, War Dogs, In The Loop have trodden similar ground before. …
