Another week and another collection of movies descend from the heavens for your viewing pleasure, or at least to keep you occupied for approximately 90 minutes. This week flattered to deceive, with a few films that promised more than they delivered. I’m looking at you ‘Hundred-Foot Journey’, but I’m sure it’s pleasant enough none the less.
