What did you see this weekend?

"A Simple Favor. It starts out as Gone Girl meets Bad Moms with the gloss of a trashy CW show, but somehow ends up as Clue? " - Chasm301

"Assassination Nation signals Ben Levinson as a filmmaker to look out for." -TonyTR

"Colette. The reviews seem overblown; it’s a very standard, by-the-numbers biopic. " - ER
