Newsletter and jokes: 3 February 2017
With most of the Oscar contenders now on circuit, we take a step back and
cater for a more populist market. Kicking off with what may be the final
instalment of the Resident Evil franchise (and some critics sincerely hope
so), we also have another instalment in "The Ring" horror series.
Rounding out the lineup is a teen-friendly sci-fi romance, and finally,
a rather disastrous release from Mr Ben Affleck, which set the wrong
sort of records over in the USA and the studio is Not Happy... :-)
On the previews side there are previews for the next episode of the
"Fifty Shades" erotic romance series. It's basically playing all
over, but I only have the Nu Metro shows listed, Ster-Kinekor did not
include them in my data feed. At least some of them are Ladies Only.
Pick a date next Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.... and be sure to book.
Speaking of booking, since both SK and NM redid their web sites, I have
been unable to link from my showtimes pages to their booking engines.
It's a problem for all of us.
On the positive side, I think I may be able to link to at least one of
them shortly, if they include an extra piece of data in the feed.
