Sharknado Week: Sharknado 4 The Forth Awakens – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Forth Awakens – Okay so this was the year that Sharknado finally jumped the shark, so to speak, but yet still it delivers on it’s frankly beyond stupid premise with more sharks and more ‘nados than ever before.  Go in expecting high art and yes you will be disappointed.  But come on it’s called Sharknado, why would you even do that? Go in expecting the forth Sharknado film and everything that comes with it  (not least a ludicrous amount of cameos) and you know what, you end up with one of the most gloriously fun films of the year.  Set brain to dumb.

Best Bit: Boulder Sand Water Sharknado

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream

Sharknado Week: Sharknado 2 The Second One – A Quick Capsule Review

Sharknado Week: Sharknado 2 The Second One – A Quick Capsule Review

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.

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Sharknado. Yes. Shark-bloody-nado. Hell I have ZERO idea what I can say about this film other than if you think the title sounds silly then this is a film you will hate with an extreme passion.  If like me the title sounds all manor of awesome, then there’s a lot to love in this knowingly cheesy, cheap as chips, barking mad Sharks in a tornado movie. For everyone else, I’d probably recommend avoiding this. Genius.  Mad genius.

Best Bit: Chainsaw + Shark = Fun

Rent, Borrow, Buy, Stream: Buy

If you liked this try: Ghost Shark (UR); Sand Shark  (UR); MegaShark vs Crockosaurus (UR)

The Expanse (Season 3) – A Quick Capsule TV Review

The Expanse (Season 3) – A Quick Capsule TV Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Expanse goes from strength to strength with it’s third season – quite simply knocking it out the park.  Covering off one and a half books from the popular series, this takes the story threads set up in seasons 1 & 2 and really runs with it.  In fact the story twists and turns in ways you’d probably never imagine with old characters returning and several memorable new ones introduced.  Oh and Amos is even better.  Yup… really.  For a moment The Expanse was ending here, with SyFy pulling the plug BUT thankfully Amazon has picked up the show for the foreseeable future.  I can only imagine how much better the show can get from here.  Truly one of the best shows on TV.

Best Bit: A certain return…

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream (Netflix UK)

If You Liked this Try: Battlestar Galactica, Space: Above And Beyond
