Film Releases This Week – 19-02-20

This week, Harrison is back with The Call of the Wild! The reviews are slightly mixed but it’s always nice to see Mr. Ford on screen. There’s also Greed with Steve Coogan, directed by Michael Winterbottom one more time. Again, the reviews are not particularly kind!

We have another contender for worst film of the year, with Like A Boss getting a lot of abuse from the critics! Two of the best this releases this week are End of the Century and Midnight Family .

Best friends Mia and Mel (Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne) are living their best lives running their own cosmetics company they’ve built from the ground up.
