Comment by Dr. Loomis – Cinema Releases January 19 2018

This week I finally get to see the Liam Neeson film The Commuter, it came out last week in the States.

Nothing else on either side of the Atlantic grabs me this week so I’ll keep on watching the Blu-rays for the most part.  Maybe I’ll take at look at the new version of Stephen king’s IT which is avaiable now on Blu-ray from Warner Bros.
