Pick of the Week:

This week is a little tough. I wasn’t a massive fan of the marketing for American Made, given the fact we have seen this movie multiple times over the years expect this time it has Tom Cruise running. I have heard good things about it but I am not super excited. Killing Ground looks like it could be a good Australian bush horror film, and the trailer does give off a scary vibe. I have heard a lot of good things about The Lost City of Z, but there hasn’t been a lot of marketing. I am a fan of the cast and the story sounds quite interesting.

The Lost City of Z is my Pick of the Week

  1. Ugh…the lost city of Z was such an incredibly boring movie. It jumped all over the place, and it was truly a disappointment. Had expected a lot more from that film, especially since I usually quite enjoy movies such as those. American Made is a movie that I still want to see 😊

    1. Interesting you’re the first person I’ve heard say something really negative about it. Like I said we haven’t had much marketing for it here. I will probably see American Made as well but I feel like it’s a played out story but this time with Tom Cruise.
