‘The Kid Who Would Be King’ Review: ‘Attack the Block’ Director Joe Cornish Returns With a Perfectly Fine Family Adventure

An old-fashioned streak of adventure runs throughout The Kid Who Would Be King , a riff on the King Arthur legend gussied up for modern times. It’s a decent enough family film, largely dependent on the charm of its young cast, that manages to be slightly disappointing only if you recognize the name of its writer/director. That would be Joe Cornish, whose directorial debut Attack the Block was a blast of fresh air back in 2011. Inexplicably, it’s taken Cornish the better part of a decade t...

Why the Brexit deadlock cannot be broken

The United Kingdom is a notoriously boring and stable country. England hasn't had a civil war since 1651, and the last time the country was invaded, in 1688, the elite decided to pretend they'd backed the whole thing all along, dubbing it a "glorious revolution" (Scotland and Northern Ireland had far bloodier experiences).
