Pick of the Week:
I am probably going to say this a lot in the coming weeks but this is a tough week to make my pick of the week. I am fascinated by historical movies and we have two historical dramas coming out this week. I will save everyone the time; I didn’t see The Nut Job, didn’t know there was The Nut Job 2 and won’t be seeing it. I have been really keen to see both Darkest Hour and The Post since I saw the first trailers for them and they both look fantastic. I will see both of those movies that is for sure but I can only have one for my Pick of the Week and I think I will go with the winning trio of Streep, Hanks and Spielberg.
The Post is my Pick of the Week
