Pick of the Week:
This week is an interesting week with A Ghost Story being tipped an an Oscar contender, but I believe it is too early to start calling these things. I am eager to see A Monster Calls, as I have heard some positive things from some of my favourite critics which is always a good thing. I was surprised how much of a fan I was of the two previous Apes movies, Rise and Dawn and I am very excited to see War for the Planet of the Apes this week.
War of the Planet of the Apes is my Pick of the Week.
