TV and Streaming – Friday 27th March 2020

Morning!

It’s the weekend! Although does it really matter at the moment? Just another day. So to help you get through the day, loads of movies for you to enjoy, including the release on pay-per-view of two more recent cinema releases.

Vin Diesel in BLOODSHOT, a comic book adaptation from the team who make the Fast and the Furious films (never saw it so cannot comment), and MILITARY WIVES, the drama starring Kristen Scott Thomas and Sharon Horgan. Mildly distracting. Both available from Amazon Prime, iTunes and Sky Store for around £11.

Back to today and plenty for everyone to choose from (I hope). Remember to spread the word and I will see you tomorrow.

Stay safe. Stay inside and Happy Friday!
