DVD Derek reviews…

Absolutely Everything is another Simon Pegg movie. The Monty Python team is involved through out the film. Fans of Pegg and Monty Python will enjoy this funny romp.

Alfred Hitchcock and his Birds

Behind the camera, his pendulous lips exhaling bad breath and extraordinarily obscene jokes in a lugubrious Cockney accent, stood the corpulent figure of Alfred Hitchcock, acknowledged as cinema’s master of murder, mayhem and suspense.
