Movies This Week – 31-07-19
Not quite sure why this week is so dull, but it is. Deal with it!
Could it be the Fast and Furious film? Has it scared off the opposition? I hope not, as it’s a bit sad if that’s the case. Obviously, avoid it like the plague. There’s Angry Birds 2 for the little people and also Photograph, which is an art house effort directed by Ritesh Batra who previously directed the Lunchbox!
Dates for all upcoming movies can be found here.
