Comment by Dr. Loomis – Cinema Releases December 22 2017

Several new films are released this week including Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle, personally I’m not going to watch this preferring to remember the Robin Williams film.  However that said it does provide some family entertainment ahead of the Christmas break along with the animated film Ferdinand.

I wonder what Father Christmas will bring me this year, i hope it’s plenty of shiny Blu-rays.
