Pick of the Week:

Compared to last week with one wide release this week has five wide release films, but quantity does not equal quality. I will eventually see mother! But I am not rushing to see it, Aronofsky’s movies can be a little too weird for my taste, even though they are well made. I have zero interest in The Emoji Movie and im surprised it is even getting a release given how poorly it has performed at the box office around the world.

This week’s pick of the week is an easy one for me because I have been waiting to see this movie since the first trailer came out. It is on my Most Anticipated list I did at the hallway point of the year. If you haven’t see the trailers for American Assassin go and check out both of them.

American Assassin is my Pick of the Week.

What is your Pick of the Week? There is a lot to choose from this week meaning there is something for everyone.
