DaddysHome_UK-Quad-v2

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Okay this shouldn’t work.  A cheap feeling lowest common denominator comedy starring I still don’t get him Will Ferrell and really, in a comedy? Mark Wahlberg.  Yet oddly (and purely down to the chemistry between the leads) this, mostly does work. Okay it’s far from the sparkling wit of a Woody Allen film but this film has ... Read More »

Blog: All Things Film – 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) Reviewed

maxresdefault

I’ll say nothing about this film’s final act, other than the fact that it does an expert job of totally destroying any goodwill mustered up by director Dan Trachtenberg’s reasonably skillful psychological Room-esque thriller that came before it. For the most part, this is a decent enough psycho-thriller that is as much of a victim of a release date coming ... Read More »

Blog: London Has Fallen – A Quick Capsule Review

London-has-Fallen-Gerard-Butler

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Where as ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ was a fun if silly action film, London Has Fallen ejects all that was pleasurable about the original and replaces it with poor cgi, a terrible over ernest script and Gerard Butler pissing away any last resemblance of talent he had left.  A dirty, violent and nasty film with pretty dubious ...
