Fate of the Furious looks to run down the competition
There’s only one big movie opening this weekend, but boy is it a biggie! The gang all returns, with all their cars and a new villianness. And a submarine! Fate should just about take ALL the money this weekend, but who will take the next nine spots?
Let’s see what’s new this week.

Mike’s Pick: I really don’t know what to see this weekend, as I saw Fate this past week and… well, it’s an ok movie, with some spectacular moments. But it says something about the franchise as a whole, and it’s not the rosiest of messages. When my review is online, you’ll be able to see it here.
Tim’s Pick: I’m going to sneak out and go see Fate sometime this weekend. And maybe some I am behind on.
