Comment By Dr. Loomis

Quite a few new releases this week, in the UK with have the WWII film Anthropoid and animated film Kubo and The Two Strings maybe worth a look.  However I would give Ben-Hur a miss, despite having Morgan Freeman it fails to deliver.

In the US the horror film The Disappointments Room looks like it may be a good bet, although for people in UK we are still awaiting a release date.
