David Brent: Life on the Road
13 days ago via Flixster
½

It's total cringe. It's awful. Yet it's funny. Knowing that David Brent isn't real makes it funny. If this were a real documentary, he would have been locked up, but as it's about a made up character it means you can laugh at his awkwardness, his total lack of social tact, and his annoying half-laugh.
Ricky Gervais has described this movie as his Spinal Tap, but it's much closer to Bad News meets Anvil. (Sorry, only Brits of a certain age will know who Bad News are.)
The only reason I didn't give this movie a higher rating is because of the last 3 minutes, although I also concede that it did wrap it up nicely.

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie

While lacking the punch of the series' episodes, Ab Fab: The Movie is an entertaining romp through the world of showbiz, glamour and excess. Even though I hadn't a clue who half the cameoing stars were, it's obvious that spots in the movie were keenly sought after. It's not Oscars material, but it will probably gain cult status within a few years......or be one of those DVDs/downloads that is pulled out and stuck on at 5 a.m. when nobody at the party has Patsy's fortitude to carry on.

Dead Presidents
39 days ago via Flixster

While the subject matter is interesting enough, this 3-set movie basically disappoints. It might work as a play, but cinematically it's just not compelling enough to satisfy for its 2 hour running time.
It starts out with the disappointment facing the young of Harlem in the late 60's, then moves onto a string of depressing scenes from the war in Vietnam. Finally we get to what should be the best moments of the movie; the heist, but it's really just a strung out disaster which we could all see coming.

Alice Through the Looking Glass

I suppose it works as a sequel for the first movie, but it should therefore have a different title as it has almost nothing to do with the book of the same name. There are different queens in both books; but of course a sequel can't handle that.
The story itself is more like Doctor Who on acid than a Lewis Carroll story. I hope Johnny Depp got paid well for having to appear in this.

Vinyl
Vinyl (2012)

A good, fun movie lacks real substance, but nevertheless entertains. A few nice twists, not all of which are predictable. However, I got the feeling that the budget was running out toward the end of the movie, so the director skipped a bit of the story to make sure there was enough money for the finale. Good, if a little repetitive, music....it could have done with more than one main song.
