GI Joe

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:Wow that was a surprise. GI Joe doesn’t suck. In fact I’d even go as far as to say it’s a pretty entertaining Summer film. Okay it’s flawed with terrible (and far too much) CGI but there’s just something about the film that just works. Entertaining, slight …

Valkyrie

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:Teaming Singer & Cruise should always have led to something special and whilst Valkyrie isn’t quite that, it is pretty damn good, even if you know the ending before you even put your DVD in the machine. Don’t believe the haters this is worth a watch….IMDB Rating: …

Taking Of Pelham 123 (2009)

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:The third Pelham film, and Tony Scott’s fourth paring with Denzel will be a turn off for any fans of the original Pelham classic. That said as a film in it’s own right , 123 2009 is brilliantly entertaining, never boring me for a second with great …

The Killing Room

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:The Killing Room delivers a good ending backed up by 90 minutes of strong performances that still, however, is JUST a story about a four people in a room leaving you with the feeling that the whole thing would have worked better as an episode of the …

Duplicity

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:A clever film that has the spark and tone of the Oceans 11 remake, made good by two compelling a sharp performances from leads Owen & Roberts as well as a unique structure that keeps you on your toes until the end. In short although much maligned …

50 Dead Men Walking: A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:A gritty, dirty and violent look into the 80’s & 90’s conflicts in Northern Ireland, 50 Dead Men… is a highly enjoyable (if factually questionable), well acted and polished romp that is spoilt only by Ben Kinsley’s stupid hair piece. IMDB Rating: 7/10Best Bit: TortureBuy, Rent or …
