Pick of the Week:

After the intense week of choices last week you think it would get easier but this week is still a hard week to pick. I had the privilege to see The Lego Batman Movie over the weekend at an advance screening (review coming Wednesday) but this movie has also had an incredible marketing campaign. That being said there is something intriguing about Ghost in the Shell. I am not familiar with the original anime but with the last clip that was released I feel like this could be like the Matrix or Blade Runner but that might not appeal to everyone.

My pick of the week this week is going to be The Lego Batman Movie
