Movie Lounge – January 20-26, 2017

Movie Lounge – January 20-26, 2017

Movie Lounge is a feature at Law And Order Party where we list ten movies screening this week that we might not have actually seen but which we’re presenting as a ranked list, anyway, based on how much they might be worth checking out.

A Friday matinee might be in order this week. As Dr. Adrienne Keene points out, there’s not much else going on worth watching that day.
