Movies This Week – 10-04-19
After the many exciting releases of last week, it’s definitely a slow one! We do have the Wild Rose which we really quite enjoyed. Otherwise, there’s a few average enough ones, with Mid90s and Little. Hellboy has been kept well away from the critics, so we’re fearing the worst! Such is life…
