Recapping what I have seen this week, and it has been a busy week, I have posted reviews of 21 Jump Street, which opened March 15, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and The Raid, which arrive in cinemas this week. Today I will be checking out both The Rum Diary and Haywire, and later in the week, The Hunger Games.
