Movie of the Week – 27-11-19

This week sees the release of Charlie’s Angels which is taking a pounding from the critics! Surprisingly, it’s not doing any better with the box office. Hopefully, they won’t bother to reboot this one for a few years at least.

This week, there are quite a few new films but it’s fair to say The Two Popes is the best of them! Knives Out is a good ensemble piece but is a little too smart for its own good. The Nightingale is the other movie that is worth checking out, but we’re still going for God’s favourite boys.
