8.5/10. For ultra-Floyd fans as myself, an introspective and personal biography of David Gilmour. It's clear that "classic" Pink Floyd represents only a decade-and-a-half of his life. He controls his life, rather than the other way around. He's aged gracefully, on his own terms.

6/10 ‐ Biker exploitation film of the 60s. Very cheesy by today's standards. This sub genre is interesting from the perspective of that time.

7/10. Long, plodding film with incredibly strong acting throughout a weak plot. Ending is uniquely bizarre and well worth the pain to getting to, if you can prevent falling asleep. A couple of classic scenes. The rest should have been edited down at least 30-45 minutes.

7/10. Feel-good movie, light fare, romantic comedy. French production provides breathe of fresh air from standard Hollywood formulaic romantic comedy recipe. Good for date night or couples viewing.

7.0. Very slow but thorough analysis of the behind-the-scenes maneuvering of the U.S. and European powers post-WW1 in reshaping Europe... and inadvertently setting the groundwork for WW2. Some parts are covered too well, others go off course and other historic pieces are ignored. There are far better WW1 documentaries to watch.

9/10. Part of the great French "Apocalypse" documentary series. Colourized and unique footage adds new perspective to the traditional Hitler narrative.

9.5/10. Incredible coloured footage with added sound bring WW1 to life like rarely seen. The narrative flows at a good pace that doesn't get bogged down in minutiae yet details timelines, battles, key events very well with accompanying footage.

8/10. Excellent series like its superior WW1 counterpart. However, rather than following a logical sequential timeline, the documentary hops back and forth over Stalin's life, creating some disjointed narrative. People really need to watch these "Apocalypse" series so that society learns from the past a message that's clear - Socialism doesn't work and has always ended with 10s of millions dead. This is a frightening reminder as Socialism influences Western politics today.
