My picks – theaters and rentals
In October 2011, after several weeks of sub-par movie options, I felt compelled to give the EightWest audience better choices for movie watching each week – one in theaters and one to watch at home.  So far, I’ve recommended 23 movies….

Have you seen any of my recommendations?  What did you think?  And did you recommend the movie to someone else? Let me know on my Laff at the Movies facebook page or on Twitter (@aaronlafferty).  I’d love to hear from you!!!

In case you missed it, here’s a look at what I’ve picked for you so far:
