Movies This Week – 25-09-19

How long have I been looking forward to the Goldfinch movie? Pretty much from the moment I first heard it announced. Sadly, no one seems to like it very much, but the book is well worth a read! The Laundromat which was directed by Steven Soderbergh and stars the amazing cast of Meryl Streep, Gary Oldman, Sharon Stone and Antonio Banderas is getting similarly dodgy reviews!

The best of this weeks releases seems to be horror movie by the name of Ready or Not!

Dates for all upcoming movies can be found here.
