The RUins

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:Ho-hum horror with an interesting premise wasted by some dull casting and a lack of victims. Whilst there’s nothing that bad about the Ruins you just cant help but feel there’s a much better film busting to get out. So not terrible but also not essential…IMDB Rating: …

Confessions Of A Shopaholic

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:Whilst not a patch on The Devil Wears Prada, Confessions Of A Shopaholic isn’t without it’s charm which comes mainly from former Home & Away star and Mrs Bruno, Isla Fisher. With her prat falls, big eyes and cute innocence it’s obvious that without her this would …

Bruno

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:Following up Borat was always going to be hard but I’m happy to report that Bruno manages it in spades. In fact I cant remember the last time I laughed so hard. Funny, rude, Over The Top and brash this is one of the best films of …

Terminator 3 : Rise Of The Machines

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:Terminator 3 is a let down. It’s a film that didn’t need to be made, telling a story that has already been told much better twice before. That said it has it’s moments and the sting in the tale ending was a pleasant surprise. IMDB Rating: 5/10 …

Push

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:Push should have worked. A pretty good cast, an interesting story and a few nice set pieces but it lets itself down by trying too hard and having a’ if we leave it open we can make this a trilogy’ type endings that assumes people will give …

Surveillance

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:Surveillance tries to be an interesting cop investigates serial killer story, with an added clever structure and a surprising twist. Alas it fails at almost every turn. Pullman sign posts the twist from the moment he steps on screen, the story just isn’t that interesting and the …

Transformers : Revenge Of The Fallen

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:Bad Boys 2 with Robots is the best way to describe Transformers 2. Inferior to the original, Too much action, too many Characters, too little story and a running time that you get a numb bum, Bay’s follow up to the far superior 2007 summer smash is …

Friday 13th 2009

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:A welcome return for an 80’s classic, Friday 13th 2009, whilst it may lack a bit in the kill department, still manages to deliver an effective, often bloody, never surprising but entertaining romp through a best of Jason Vorhees that’s much better than most critics gave it …
