Pick of the Week:
This week finally sees the Australian release of Get Out, a movie that was released in America back in February. I had the pleasure of seeing an advance screening of it and you can read my full review here, do not worry there are no spoilers. I do not know a lot about The Zookeepers Wife, though it does intrigue me with the talent it has and the historical premise. I would like to see it if I get the chance. I have no interest in seeing A Dogs Purpose. Controversies aside, why would anyone want to watch a dog die 7 times in a movie. Marley and Me is hard enough to watch and it only happen once. As a dog lover who has had dogs my whole life I couldn’t think of anything worse than experiencing the horrid feeling of losing a dog over and over again in a movie.
My Pick of the Week this week is Get Out so make sure you Get Out and see it.
Or you could go watch Star Wars and celebrate Star Wars Day (May the fourth be with you)
