There is some amazing movie releases this month and I really don’t know how I’m going to get to go see all of these wonderful movies. There is just no time on the run up to Christmas, but hopefully over the holidays I might be able to get to the cinema. What are you looking forward too or what have you seen? As always I love to hear your feedback.
