Point Break (2016)
Without a doubt one of the most pointless films of 2016, Point Break is terrible.  Okay so some of the stunts are pretty impressive but you can watch that on YouTube.  Point Break 2016 strips away EVERYTHING that was good about the original and delivers a cookie cutter bad excuse for an action film.  Please don’t support this.  Watch the original instead! 

 

 

Close but no cigar: YOGA HOSERS

 

 

Yoga Hosers – A Quick Capsule Review

Yoga Hosers – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Okay so after the disappointing Red State and the frankly appalling Tusk (one of my worst films of 2015), my expectations for Yoger Hosers – a semi-sequel to Tusk – were pretty low.  It’s nice to report then that I actually quite enjoyed Smith’s latest.  Yes it’s puerile, yes it’s anal related humour is childish and yes its as low brow as it comes BUT the leads do an excellent job considering their experience, Depp the elder is having fun and Podcast favourite Garmin does his stick with ease. It’s far from high brow but it’s worth a watch.

Best Bit: Depp & Smith are a strong paring

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: Tusk, Clerks 2, Dogma

IMDB Rating:
