Ant-man and the Wasp, Ocean’s 8… 10 movies you should see this weekend



Some movies leave one with a feeling of glee while some poorly executed flicks make one want to puke, punch someone and throw a tantrum – all at once.
To help you avoid such a situation that’d leave you fuming out of the cinema in utter disgust, TheCable Lifestyle recommends the following movies.
