Movie Lounge – March 3, 2016

Logan (James Mangold, 2017)

Movie Lounge – March 3, 2016

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. Because this week features overlap between the Providence Children’s Film Festival and the Providence French Film Festival, we’re stretching the list of titles to twelve.
