Saturday Night Movie Recommendations with Abe

Welcome back to a weekly feature here at Movies With Abe. I'm going to be providing a handy guide to a few choice movies currently playing in theatres as well as several films newly released on DVD. I’ll also aim to comment on those films I have not yet had the chance to see, and I invite you to add in your thoughts on any films I haven’t seen in the comments below. Understandably, some weeks will have considerably fewer releases to address than others.

Now Playing

This is a particularly dull week. Much more to come soon.

New to DVD

Hyde Park on Hudson (mixed bag): This snapshot from FDR’s life features a Golden Globe-nominated interpretation by Bill Murray, but it is most worthwhile for the British focus it has, featuring Samuel West and Olivia Colman as entertaining versions of the King and Queen of England, equally compelling to those offered by other actors in “The King’s Speech” in a less focused and competent film.
