Bush's controversial US Secretary of Defense during the ill-fated Iraq invasion and one of the most polarizing figures in his administration. Displaying a grandfatherly countenance (the poster asks, "Why Is This Man Smiling?") but able to spew acidic partisan bromides with the best of them, it is easy to see why he is both loved and hated by the public. 2014.  Rated PG-13. 103 minutes.]

Young Doctor's Notebook, A [BBC] [Fun, dark, and twisted British TV dramedy starring Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) as a fresh, unprepared doctor who takes the reins of a hospital on the eve of the Russian Revolution and has to consult with his older self (Mad Men's Jon Hamm) to deal with all of his crazy patients and their odd maladies. 2012. Unrated.]
