Phil’s Top 5… Underrated Films

Phil’s Top 5… Underrated Films

Other Cr*p Top 5

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: My Top 5 Underrated Films!


Close but no cigar: RocknRolla, Tank Girl, The Last Supper, The Brady Bunch Movie, T2 Trainspotting


5 – Layer Cake
Matthew Vaughn’s directorial debut is a stylish gangster thriller that retains some of the visuals of the Guy Richie films that inspired them but adds a dose of real life grit and depth.   Made Daniel Craig a star.

4 – Sunshine
Danny Boyle’s sci-fi feature was a flop on it’s release but rewatch it.  Go on.  It’s REALLY good.


3 – Children of Men
Children of Men is just brilliant.  A dark, brooding sci-fi thriller with stunning cinematography and exceptional direction.   Unlike any film of it’s era.


2 -Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
Shane Black’s first directorial outing is brilliant fun featuring excellant off kilter  performances from Kilmer & Downey Jnr.


1 – Hudson Hawk
Considered to be the first of Willis big flops, Hudson Hawk is a mess.  It’s also great fun and hugely underrated. Yes it’s silly, yes it’s over the top BUT it’s also a film that you need to watch again.



Phil’s Top 5… Bill Paxton Films

Phil’s Top 5… Bill Paxton Films

Other Cr*p Top 5

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: to celebrate the career of Bill Paxton, who sadly passed away just over a week ago, i’m taking a look at my favourite five of his movies.


Close but no cigar:  True Lies, Titanic, The Last Supper, The Terminator, Tombstone

5 – Twister
Yup it’s a pretty terrible film. But is was the first big budget blockbuster to put Paxton front and centre as the leading man and, years on, it’s  still remembered as a fun summer blockbuster.  


4 –  A Simple Plan
A film few have seen, A Simple Plan is the Sam Raimi film that plays it straight with none of the tricks or gore of his more know efforts.  But that allows performances to stand out and Paxton once again delivers as the blue collar worker whose life is turned upside down after finding $4million.


3 – Apollo 13
Like it or not, Apollo 13 is a well told film that finds tension in a story where the outcome is already known.  Standing out alongside Hanks and Bacon is no easy task but Paxton gives the film heart.


2 – Near Dark
Before it’s time, Katherine Bigelow’s Near Dark remains a great film.  As Severn, Paxton delivers a memorable performance as the psychotic white trash vampire in a film of stand out performances.


1 – Aliens
“Game over Man, Game Over”. Hudson remains one of cinema’s most quotable characters in what is one of the best films of all time.  Aliens is that good and Paxton stands out for all the right reasons.  Just epic.
