The Assassination of John Wick by the Cowards Beauty and the Beast

Over the last couple of weeks I saw: Beauty and the Beast (2017), John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017), Oh, Hello On Broadway (2017), Mommy Dead and Dearest (2017), The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007), Paris Can Wait (2017) and Shimmer Lake (2017).
