JPOC's movie reviews

I'm posting new reviews here at the rate of about two a week. If you want to see what are the latest entries, just check out the site's what's new page.

I've started to work through my file of reviews of all the films that I saw while I was in Brussels. The first few are now up here. I'll add one or two a week until the lot is done.
