David Brent: Life on the Road

More than 10 years on, can David Brent make it from the paper business to show business? And, more importantly, is watching him fail at that still funny?

Finding Dory

Another film about the locating of fish. That genre will never die so long as we fish ourselves.

The Choir

You will note that the poster for this movie has a different title from the one I give it. This is because like with all my reviews, I choose the anglocentric angle and have decided to call it by the name it has been given in my country.

Still Alice

 Movies about the decline into some ailment are going to be either one of two things. They can be overly sentimental, cheesy and formulaic or they can be great. Which type is this?
