The Breakdown of 'Megan Leavey', 'Shimmer Lake', 'Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit' and Remembering Adam West

It was a rough week as we lost both Peter Sallis and Adam West this week. We honor Sallis by reviewing the animated feature, Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, where he voices the lead, as well we discuss the career of Adam West. We also have two other movie reviews including the indy biopic, Megan Leavey. From there we discuss the future of the Dark Universe and if Rotten Tomatoes are having a huge effect on box office like studios think. As always if you enjoy the show then please spread the word to other movie lovers.
