Pick of the Week:
This week is a little tough. Not because I can’t choose because I want to see them all but because I am not fussed if I don’t see them. I will probably go and see The Disaster Artist in limited release, rewatch Thor: Ragnarok or prepare for The Last Jedi by watching all the Star Wars movies again (might skip the prequels). Alas though I must pick a movie to recommend this week. Wonder looks like it might pull on some heart strings and have the audience feeling a little emotional, but also looks like a heart warming tale. Only The Brave could be a hit and miss real life hero drama, it looks good but it might go either way.
Wonder is my Pick of the Week.
