Pick of the Week:

What better way to follow up Christmas than to go to the movies, and there is a movie for everyone being released this week. I have already seen Call Me By Your Name and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (Reviews coming soon) and I enjoyed both. I would be happy to watch all the movies being released this week to be honest they all have some appeal. My top two picks would be Coco, because of my love for Disney and Pixar, and The Greatest Showman because of its incredible marketing campaign. I will probably see both and more but I can only pick one.

My Pick of the Week is Coco

  1. I’m looking forward to your review for Jumanji. So far it’s getting pretty good reviews which is something I had not expected. Also: Merry Christmas, hope you have a great day 😀
