2017 Movie Trailers: Five Things We Like About Five Movies In Five Minutes Each
For this special episode – which may or may not become a tradition (but let’s be honest, it probably will…perhaps quarterly) – we’re taking a look at some of our favorite 2017 movie trailers that we’ve seen so far and talking about some of the things we like about them.
