2017 Golden Globe Nominations

AWARD SEASON IS UPON US!


This is my most favorite time of year, besides Christmas that is. The Golden Globe nominations came out about a week ago and I'm already crossing movies off of my list.  There will be quite a few movie reviews coming your way over the next few weeks.

So far I have seen Moonlight, Hacksaw Ridge, Zootopia, The Lobster, and Deadpool.  I've really enjoyed all of them. The Lobster was weird though; not what I thought it was going to be. I'm going to see Manchester by the Sea on Thursday afternoon since I have the day off.  I plan on renting Hell or High Water and Florence Foster Jenkins from Red Box.
