Pick of the Week:

This one is pretty easy to pick this week. I don’t care for the Insidious movies, I am not much of a horror fan. I actually like Clint Eastwood movies, but after seeing the trailer for The 15:17 to Paris I really don’t feel like I need to see this movie. It is a cool trick that he is putting the actually soldiers in the movie to play themselves as the leads of the story, but the movie doesn’t interest me at all. Haven’t seen a Fifty Shades movie so why start now, I will just wait for the Honest Trailer to come out and fill me in on everything I missed out on. I liked the movie Patriots Day, though I did feel that it was a bit much, in particular the use of the Mark Wahlberg character, but Stronger definitely seems like an interesting take on what it means to be a ‘hero’.

Stronger is my Pick of the Week

  1. I thought for sure you were going to pick Fifty Shades for this week lol😂😂
    Seriously though, I would make the same choice as you. Due to some circumstances I’m missing out on quite a few movies in the theatres at the moment, but Stronger does sound and looks like a good movie 😊

    1. I know that feeling, I just took on a new role at work and that makes it harder to see and review movies. Stronger is meant to be a great movie and some people think Gyllenhaal should have been nominated
