Movies This Week – 07-08-19

It kind of feels like the world of movies is just waiting for the release of the new Tarantino film, or is that just me? I’ve seen it and it’s not that exciting, honest!

This week we have Animals (which is really quite good), Blinded By The Light (another one worth seeing) and a documentary called Gaza. We also have the release of a film called Kings, which is currently sporting a 9% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. I’m tempted to watch it just to see how bad it is! Playmobil the movie is better than you’d expect, if you’re looking for something for the kids.

Dates for all upcoming movies can be found here.
