Wow, those five weeks have passed by rather quickly. Well I’m officially back with your weekly set of entertainment links. I’m sure Steve is extremely relieved that he doesn’t have to cover for me now. Anyway, there’s a lot of summer flicks out there right now but it appears that most of them aren’t leaving a lasting impression.The new release this weekend is the Ghostbusters reboot. While it’s not a terrible movie and it might not be deserving of all the thumbs down on Youtube, let’s just say it doesn’t quite hit the high notes as it anticipates to.
Gonna kick off the link off with Maika Monroe. She’s keeping a busy schedule ahead but you can catch her in Independence Day: Resurgence.
