A unique insiders’ account of former President Barack Obama’s foreign policy team during their last year in office is what new Greg Barker directed documentary The Final Year offers.

With unprecedented access inside the White House and State Department, The Final Year promises a look at the inner workings of the Obama Administration as they prepare to leave power after eight years…

Just like the narrator, I too imagined that the white house, particularly the parts surrounding the oval office were much larger that what we get to see in this trailer. I suppose everything appears larger in House Of Cards because the set has to be bulit with greater dimensions to allow for ease of filming. Just a guess.

I’ll be watching for reasons including all that I didn’t already know and just to rewind time a little bit so I can reminisce about the smarts, empathy and charisma of America’s former president.

The Final Year Release Dates: Januaray 19th, 2018 (US)…

Starring Devon Terrell, Anya Taylor Joy and directed by Vikram Gandhi, Barry is the latest Barack Obama biopic from Netflix. This time the focus is on his time in New York City as a young college student, the period that helped shape the future president of the United States…

Also starring jason Mitchell, Ashley Judd and Ellar Coltrane, I confess that it took me a few moments to realise why a film about Barack Obama, the current president of the United States is called Barry. Clearly it must be what his friends call(ed) him. I blame my slow brain on my association of the president with cool whereas I definitlry don’t have the same association with the name Barry. (no offence to all the lovely Barry’s of the world, of course).

I still haven’t watched Southside With Youthe other Barack Obama biopic released earlier this year. But I am looking forward to comparing it with the new ‘college years edition’.

Barry Release Dates: December 16th, 2016 (US)…

Before The Flood is the Leonardo DiCaprio executive produced and narrated documentary about climate change, endangered species, ecosystems and native communities around the world…

Though not a drama, thriller or an action movie, as a lifelong appreciator of DiCaprio’s work, there is no question I’ll be tuning in with enthusiasm.

I’m also hoping to learn a few things that perhaps other similar documentaries haven’t covered in quite the same way.

Before The Flood Release Dates: October 21st, 2016 (US)
