    Saw A Simple Favor this past weekend and loved the movie! It should be a must see for all who love a good thriller, plot twists, and comedic elements as well! Would love to see a sequel! 5*

    I hate to say this, because I was looking forward to it, but The Nun was sooooooo bad. I’m surprised it’s even in second place at this point, word must have gotten out how bad it is.
