Big Ass Spider: A Quick Capsule Review (Revisited)

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Not often do you get a film that so brilliant ‘does what it says on the tin’ but welcome then to Big Ass Spider a film about… well I think you can guess.  So cheesy dialogue, poor FX, Lloyd Kaufman cameo, mostly TV cast… it’s all here.  But you know what? It’s bloody good fun despite all that. Or maybe because of? Regardless this is a fun way to spend 90 mins.  It’s won’t linger much past the end credits but that’s not always a bad thing.

Best Bit: The opening. Actually quite brilliant.

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Meg is kinda everything you’d expect from a Jason Statham Vs a bloody great Shark movie.  Okay… so the script needed more work and not all the acting lands even for a film of this ilk BUT everyone here knows the film they are making and give it their all on screen.  And it’s fun.  A lot of fun.  It’s also the film The Asylum (Sharknado and almost every Sharksomething Vs SomethingSomething) WISH they could afford to make.  Statham is great, the shark fully believable and the tongue firmly placed in cheek.  Well worth a trip to the cinema.

Best Bit: The dog.

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
As you would probably expect Sharknado 2 is either the best film you’ve ever seen or the worst film ever made – depending on if you found the first one as genius as I did.  From Evil Dead references (several in fact) to off the hook performances, the worst CGI you have ever seen and an opening sequence so utterly stupid that it rates as possibly the best sequence in a film in 2014, Sharknado knows it’s dumb and naff.  And that’s kinda why it works.  It never takes itself seriously, relishes in it’s own stupidity and places it’s tongue firmly in cheek… which is exactly why this is one of the most enjoyable films of 2014 so far.

It aint the Godfather… but it also aint Tranfourhours 4.  Which is something to be grateful for.

Best Bit: Sharks On A Plane

Buy, Rent, Stream, Borrow: Buy

If You Liked this Try: Sharknado, Snakes On A Plane; Giant Something vs Mega whatever (pick the something and whatever)
