Pick of the Week:
This week is one of the hardest weeks of the year to try and pick my Pick of the Week. We have two movies being released that made my Most Anticipated list with Detroit and Murder on the Orient Express. I have also been eagerly anticipating Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, every since I saw the first trailer. If I get my way I will see 4 out of the 5 movies being released this week, I will probably give the Connor McGregor movie a miss, or watch it on Netflix. It is definitely a toss up between Detroit, Murder on the Orient and Professor Marston and the Wonder Women but I think I know which movie I will see if I could only pick one.
My Pick of the Week is Murder on the Orient Express
