Pick of the Week:
It’s a stacked week for good looking new releases but we all know what movie to be excited for. It’s Thor, it was always going to be Thor. I enjoy the first movie, don’t rate the second movie at all but the addition of Hunt for the Wilderpeople director Taika Waititi has me so excited for Thor: Ragnarok. Fans of Aubrey Plaza might be interested in Ingrid Goes West as I had heard good things about it but nothing was going to beat out Thor.
Thor: Ragnarok is my Pick of the Week
Are you keen for Thor? Maybe one of the indie darlings out? Perhaps you love a Clooney and Cohen Brothers team up. What is your Pick of the Week?
