Comment by Dr. Loomis – Cinema Releases August 25 2017

My pick of the weeks films, meaning the one I plan to watch has to be the new Tom Cruise movie American Made. The rest I simply do not find particularly appealing. I am kind of sick of stupid comedies by that I mean poorly written ones and that my first impressions of Logan Lucky.

Maybe I’m wrong please let me know if you happen to see it and really like it as I may give it a chance at some point. Right now I have more than enough films to catch up on plus quite a few nice Blu-ray releases due over the next couple of months.
