Immersive Wolf of Wall Street – A Quick Capsule Theatre Review

Local Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
So let’s be honest – is this the most polished, high budgeted, slick theatre show you can see in London? Hell no. But does it have a super enthusiastic cast, some cracking scenes and a whole load of FUN interaction and silliness? Yup. And for that I both commend and, ultimately, recommend this show. One tip – if you’ve never seen the film or like my oft partner in crime Ross think it’s one of the most disgusting and pointless things ever – steer clear for this is excess, OTT, in your face immersive Wolf as you’d expect and , I guess for me, hope. Yup it has issues – it’s a bit disjointed, not all the cast are firing to the same level and we certainly missed a few bits as we branched off into two separate groups. But considering some of the less than favourable reviews I enjoyed the hell out of it.

Secret Cinema: Casino Royale (2019) – A Not So Quick Capsule Review

Secret Cinema: Casino Royale (2019) – A Not So Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: I’ve always wanted to attend a Secret Cinema. I missed Star Wars, Back To The Future and 28 Days later (all top 15 films for me) but when the opportunity came up to be Bond, and especially within the gambling world of Casino Royale, I thought this was the one. This is my Secret Cinema.  I should have waited. 

Secret Cinema Casino Royale is a massive bust. From it’s hot as hades out out London location to its total lack of immersion and cohesion, it feels little more than an over subscribed under planned money grab.  A way to funnel you into the expensive drinks and food (actually not bad tasting). An hour in I had no idea what I was meant to do, where I was meant to go or how to get involved. It was overcrowded, the few actors where swamped and few seemed to care. 

By hour two when the Casino was revealed I was bored and less than excited by the overcrowded two play tables and bad dancing on stage. The best dressed competition was a real low point. 

At least the film is still one of Bonds best. 

But as it turns out this is also one of the worst way to watch a movie. For a company priding itself on its ‘experience’ and love of film the constantly getting up to go to the bar drunk people, noisy bar area and crashing catering staff almost take away the fun of seeing the film on the big screen. The interactive actors did little to enhance the experience. Oh and worst of all the version they projected here skipped numerous times. Criminal. 

Overall a big double oh no and certainly not an experience I’d recommend.
