The offerings this week don't totally float my boat. I'm being spoiled with so many 4-star and above films that I may be cracking down a bit hard on the also-rans! But hey - remember it's all a matter of personal taste when it comes to film! I'm quite disturbed that some of La La Land's awards so far have robbed what I perceive as better candidates of their just desserts. Among my personal circle, that is just one film that seems to divide the audiences. This week's may be the same!Jackie

|©Roadshow - Will Smith is always good to watch, but the film|
overall is a muddled attempt at mixing genres.
