Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
A Wrinkle In Time easily jumps into my Worst of 2018 list.  A hour after watching the film I can’t remember a thing about it other than the overwhelming sense of boredom.   The script is seriously lacking, the direction heavy handed and teh over reliance on CGI just criminal.  I agree that in reality I’m not the target audience here and my daughter felt very differently about the film but damn until I can stop talking her to see movies I get an opinion as well.  So in short kids may like it but this is a film I could quite happily never watch again.

Best Bit: Mercifuly short

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
A charming adaptation of a classic kids book, the BFG is brought to life by some stunning visual effects, what should be an award nominated performance by Mark Rylance and some sturdy workman like direction from Spielberg.  However its the script by ET writer Melissa Mathison that expertly adapts the Dahl book, glossing over the darker elements and highlighting the fun, that makes this film sing.  So overall a very good adaptation of classic film.

Best Bit: Rylance as the BFG
