Movies This Week – 15-05-19
With the minimum of hype, the final episode of John Wick arrives on our doors! For some reason, I was expecting the worst from this one, but it seems to be of a similar standard to those that went before. Expect to see Keanu shooting lots of people in the head!
Otherwise, it’s a quiet enough week, but what more could you possibly need?
Dates for all upcoming movies can be found here.
