Movies This Week – 9-10-19

I guess the biggest surprise this week is that the new Ang Lee movie is a bit suspect! No critic seems to like Gemini Man, starring Will Smith and that makes me sad.

Otherwise, it’s a slow enough week with The Day Shall Come, Abominable, Bait and a few more besides. We did really like A Bump Along The Way, which is possibly the best of the new releases.

Dates for all upcoming movies can be found here.
