Comment By Dr. Loomis – Cinema Releases January 27 2017

There you have it the Cinema Releases January 27 2017. T2 Trainspotting is out this week but as I wasn’t a fan of Trainspotting I’ll be giving it miss. So another week where nothing interests me, come on filmmakers make some decent films!

Hang on I’ll have to make sure I’ve seen all the Oscar nominated films…
