Comment by Dr. Loomis – Cinema Releases August 18 2017
I was looking forward to watching the Stephen King based film The Dark Tower however I’ve read several disappointing reviews that has somewhat dampened my enthusiasm. That said I will still take a look and make up my own mind.
Nothing else really interests me this week I’m sick of action comedy style films so The Hitman’s Bodyguard won’t be seeing my money anytime soon. Nor for that fact will the upcoming September release Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
