    Victoria & Abdul


    Basically a sequel to Mrs. Brown, but not up to the same standards of writing or performance.  Judi Dench is still outstanding as Queen Victoria, though.

    Terrific acting from both Judi Dench and Billy Connely, and a fascinating story. The picture badly needs restoration.

    28 Up


    The children of 7 Up are now fully fledged adults, and it's getting more interesting seeing how dramatically some have changed since 21, for better or worse. It seems clearer now that the series' premise - that our future personalities are determined from a young age - is not correct at all.

    As an exercise in beautiful imagery, it's almost unparalleled. The storyline is touching and memorable, although the pacing is all over the place. Hope you like planes.
