Pick of the Week: With four movies out this week there is plenty to choose from. It looks like Sleepless and The Great Wall can be fun switch your brain of style action movies that are always fun though not always good. The dense material and 3 hour run time you may need to be in the mood for Silence, though it is considered to have been the biggest Oscar Snub. My pick of the week is Hidden Figures though as it is a heart warming story about three incredible women and how they are not as well known as they should be. It is no surprise this was nominated for Best Picture.
