Coco – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Coco is Pixar back firing on all cylinders – It’s funny, charming and endearing without being preachy or over the top.  In fact I’d say that Coco happily sits towards the top end of Pixar’s considerable cannon.  Visually stunning and with top draw voice acting, it’s day of the dead theme (whilst treading similar ground to  ...

American Made – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Whilst hardly essential or breaking any new ground, American Made is good fun even if it does play like a knock off of superior films like The Wolf Of Wall Street (Style wise).  That said Liman knows how to direct a film and the action comes thick and fast in this ‘true life’ tale of a ...
