Movies This Week – 14-08-19

Well, it’s finally here! Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood arrives on the back of a very successful marketing campaign that kept it in the media for several months at this stage! It’s worth seeing but don’t expect too much from it. Otherwise, we’d recommend Transit and that’s about it for this week! Dora The Explorer and the Lost City of Gold is a half decent kids’ film, Uglydolls isn’t!

Dates for all upcoming movies can be found here.
