Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn (2020)- A Quick Capsule Review

Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn (2020)- A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
It feels a bit mean giving Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn a  7/10 (Spoiler Alert for the rating I guess) but it’s just one of those films that’s ALMOST brilliant.  For sure Birds Of Prey is funny, charming, violent and colourful. It even has a good villain in McGregor. Yup Birds of Prey is so fun it even manages to make you forget about disaster that was Suicide Squad (that said Robbie was the best thing in that too). And if this was JUST Robbie I’d be onboard. It would be an 8/10.  Maybe even higher.   But the whole Birds Of Prey thing just doesn’t work well enough.  Sure Jurnee Smollett-Bell is good as Black Canary but Mary Elizabeth Winstead & Rosie Perez just seem miscast and the film spends time introducing characters that just don’t need to be there or that you just don’t care about.   Yup it may say Birds of Prey above the poster but this is Quinn’s movie and the film is far better when she is on screen.

Best Bit: The Tank Girl punk rock n roll feel

Suicide Squad (2016) – A Quick Capsule Review (Revisited)

Suicide Squad (2016) – A Quick Capsule Review (Revisited)

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
So’ the worst film ever made’ as seemingly branded by ever critic ever? No.  Is it any good?  Kinda.  For about 30 minutes of it’s run time at least.  Shame then it’s a near two hour film.  Look this film would NEVER live up to those trailers.  It was impossible.  They were just SO good.  So the fact it falls short shouldn’t surprise anyone.  The fact that the film also suffers from a seriously lack of vision, feels rushed yet manages to be boring at times and has a script seemingly written on the torn up back of a cigarette box also shouldn’t surprise anyone when you consider Ayer is a okay director whose never really excelled and Zack Snider has his messy finger prints all over this one. SO the headlines: Margot Robbie Steals the show, Jai Courtney is bad as you’d expect and less said about Cara Delevingne the better.  Could have been a contender…

Best Bit: Margot Robbie

Terminal (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Terminal (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Terminal is one hell of a showcase for Margot Robbie, a neo-noir that is visually striking and with one of the most insane last fifteen minutes of any film i’ve seen this year. It’s just a shame that overall the film is so uneven, with twists and turns so obvious that you guess them as soon as they are muted.  However Robbie is so gloriously over the top and the film some insane I actually ended up liking in because of it faults.  The support cast deliver (Dexter Fletcher and Simon Pegg especially) and the direction is bold.   So not everyone’s cup of tea for sure but go with it and there’s a lot to enjoy.

Best Bit: The last fifteen minutes

Phil’s Top 5… Movie Trailers!

Phil’s Top 5… Movie Trailers!

Other Cr*p

Each week Phil takes a lookout a different movie related Top Five… this time out: Movie Trailers!


Close but no cigar:
 Suicide Squad (Ballroom Blitz Trailer), Matrix Reloaded, Blair Witch Project, Psycho,


5 – Mad Max: Fury Road
Set the scene like no other and showed us why, after all these years, Mad Max could be great again.

4 – Star Wars The Phantom Menace
Simply put this trailer still sends goose bumps down my spine even though I know the film is utter crap.  Convinced a generation that Star Wars would be good again.

 

3 – Terminator 2 : Judgement Day
The trailer that defined a generation of filmmaking.  Simply put it’s note perfect for a note perfect film.

 

2 – Alien
Just a brilliant piece of marketing in an age when trailers were mostly just functional.

 

 

1 – Prometheus
This trailer was outstanding.  It marked us a film that we wanted to see, set the bar high and then the film… well… failed miserably.

 

Phil’s Best To Worst: 2016 Blockbusters

Phil’s Best To Worst: 2016 Blockbusters

Best... Other Cr*p

Listed in reserve order (From Worst to Best) Phil, of Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, breaks down a film related subject in order of his own personal enjoyment.  This time out: 2016 Blockbusters 

(Not Seen: Jason Bourne, The Legend Of Tarzan,

[divider]

Worst: The Divergent Series: Allegiant – Part 1

Such a drag of a film, like all the Divergent films they just don’t work enough for me to care.

——

12. Independence Day Resurgence

The sequel no-one wanted to a film few people care about.  Yup this was a sure fire bomb.

——

11. The Huntsman Winters War 

Well it was better than the first one! (Generally anything WITHOUT Kristen Stewart is an instant improvement)

——

10. Warcraft  

Not the critical mess you’ve been led to believe but far from essential

——

9. Ghostbusters (2016)

The fact they were women was a mute point when this reboot/remake forgot to include enough laughs to make it a worthwhile experience.

——

8. Suicide Squad

The trailer of the year delivers one of the bigger let downs. Sadly this promised lots and delivered very little.

——

7. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out of The Shadows

This could have been worse.  (Could have been better too).  It had it’s moments and Amell was great.

——

6. Now You See Me 2 

This sequel improved on the original in almost every way… except the point when it crawled up it’s own behind.  Up until then however…

——

5. The Jungle Book (2016)

It’s a good film.  It’s also a technically brilliant film.  It’s just not a brilliant film in it’s own right.  If you see what I mean…

——

4. X-Men: Apocalypse 

Not as good as First Class, better than Days Of Future Past.  But probably shows that this franchise need a break for a while…

——

3. Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice  

Forget the critics I liked BVSDOJ a lot.  Just don’t worry about the Extended version too much. It just offers length. And in a near 3 hour films already thats not what you need more of.

——

2. Captain America: Civil War 

The war was too civil and further signs of Marvel’s halo starting to slip are present but this is still top notch blockbuster fare.

——

Best: Star Trek Beyond

Better than Wrath of Into Darkness, not QUITE as good as JJ’s reboot.  Beyond offers a celebratory 50th anniversary offering that is just what the doctor ordered.  Summer 2016’s bets blockbuster !
