Ready Player One (2018) – A Revisited Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Tonally Ready Player One is a bit of a mess.  The humour doesn’t always work alongside the darker story undertones and the amount of swearing is very unusual for a Spielberg film.  This all said – Ready Player One is visually stunning and as you’d expect the direction is first class, showing once again that Spielberg is still one of the best directors working today.  The cast are generally good as well but personally I’m getting a little bored with Mark Rylance’s increasingly one note mumbling’s.  But it’s the cameos you’ll remember – everything from the Iron Giant to the Delorean and a million more.  Ultimately Ready Player One is a geeks paradise that’s good enough to paper over it’s cracks.

Best Bit: Cameos!

Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) – A Quick Capsule Review

Hall of Fame Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark is as near perfect a film as you will get.  Yup it’s the same Spielberg classic actioner that we’ve seen a hundred times before but it’s amazing that, even after nearly 40 years, it still holds up perfectly and introducing it to my daughter I was surprised just how much she loved it also. The pacing, set up and action is second to none, all pulled together expertly by one of THE most iconic performances ever committed to film.  It’s not my favourite of the trilogy (Crusade is) but Raiders is probably the best.  A worthy entry into our Hall Of fame and one of the best films ever made.

Best Bit: Chasing the ark
