Killer Joe (2011) – A Quick Capsule Review (Revisited)

Killer Joe (2011) – A Quick Capsule Review (Revisited)

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Okay this one will split audiences down the middle. Edgy, tough and at times hugely uncomfortable, Killer Joe is now for the weak at heart.  Or of stomach.  In fact it’s fair to say this former stage play is about as claustrophobic and uncomfortable as a film can be.  Move past the obvious shock value, this is a superbly acted, boundary pushing film of the highest order.  A pleasant surprise.  Be warned however when the chicken is introduced most will want to look away.

Trainspotting – A Classic Quick Capsule Review

Trainspotting – A Classic Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Trainspotting defined a generation.  It’s THAT important as a film. It set the culture for 90’s Britain and showed how to adapt the unadaptable.  It launched careers, cemented Boyle as one of  THE up and coming directors in the UK and sold millions in soundtrack albums.  But more than that is was an adrenaline shot in the arm of the British film industry.  Years later it still stands up as a great film and re-watching it just cemented it further as the classic it is.

Best Bit: Lust for Life!

If You Liked this Try: Shallow Grave, T2 Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire

Phil’s Top 5… Danny Boyle Films

Phil’s Top 5… Danny Boyle Films

Other Cr*p Top 5

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: To celebrate the upcoming release of T2: Trainspotting here are my top 5 Danny Boyle Films!


Close but no cigar: Sunshine, 127 Hours, The Beach


5 – Steve Jobs
Based on Walter Isaacson biography and taking a rather unconventional approach, Steve Jobs was an awesome look at one of technology’s greatest characters, delivered in a way only Danny Boyle would dare.  Oh and an award nominated script by the maestro Aaron Sorkin… what more could you ask.

4 – Shallow Grave
Years on, Danny Boyle’s low budget debut Shallow Grave is still a damn good film and one that launched us the careers of two of the UK’s most known actors. Tense, tightly directed and thrilling. 


3 – Slumdog Millionaire
Showing the Boyle can turn his style to almost any narrative, Slumdog tells a colourful love story set against a bizarre story of a street kid and a TV game show. Excellent performances and well a deserved Oscar win for Boyle. 

2 – 28 Days Later
Simply put one of the best Zombie/Horror films ever made, one of the best low budget films ever made, one of the best British films ever made.  


1 – Trainspotting
Iconic. Groundbreaking. Masterpiece.  Trainspotting is all this and more. It’s also damn harrowing and gave us a soundtrack that defined a generation.  A must see.
