Movie Lounge – September 15, 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.

Also be sure to check out the Law And Order Party Fall Movie Preview!
