The Breakdown of 'A Wrinkle in Time', 'Red Sparrow', 'Lady Bird', 'Darkest Hour', 'Gringo' and 'The Strangers: Prey by Night'

The Movie Breakdown is bursting out at the seams this week with six big movie reviews. We have the highly anticipated family fantasy adventure in the Ava Duvernay directed A Wrinkle in Time. We also discuss two Best Picture nominees in the coming of age dramedy Lady Bird and the other movie about the battle of Dunkirk this time from the political perspective in Darkest Hour. We also review two more 2018 releases including the action comedy, Gringo and the slasher picture, The Strangers: Prey at Night. We cover a whole slew of genres this week along with some big recommendations. As always if you enjoy the show then please spread the word to other movie buffs. As well, we always welcome feedback and really appreciate you choosing to listen to us.
