Weekend Watch – 11/09/18


Welcome to the Weekend Watch. Where we try to point you towards the best ways to spend your viewing time (or, at least, steer you clear of the garbage).

Movies

Wide Release

The Girl in the Spider’s Web

Loren: I’ve never watched any of the Lisbeth movies. Originals or American remakes. I feel like I should start with those first. That said this looks like so many other vigilante movies. Meh?

Rick: I’m in for this. Maybe this will finally push me into watching the expanded versions of the original trilogy.

Jen: I feel like I’m over the Lisbeth Salander saga, but Claire Foy is awesome so I’m willing to check this out, but I’ve lowered my expectations.


The Grinch

Loren: No, thanks. I’m good with the original 60s animated version.

Rick: ButWhy.gif

Jen: Why does this exist, exactly?


Overlord

Loren: Damnit Jen! The video game thing was going to be my take on this. Conversely though, I would play this game and now maybe I’m going to download Wolfenstein.

Rick: I have zero interest in this movie. Can we stop with the zombies already? Please, I beg of you, horror filmmakers. Try something new. Or at least something we haven’t seen in a while. Like vampires. Or werewolves. Or fucking insect people. Just something that isn’t a zombie.

Jen: This feels strongly like a video game and not a movie. And not a game I’d want to play. Continue reading

Weekend Watch – 11/2/18


Welcome to the Weekend Watch. Where we try to point you towards the best ways to spend your viewing time (or, at least, steer you clear of the garbage).

Movies

Wide Release

Bohemian Rhapsody

Loren: I’m sure that this is going to be good but I’m not sure that I’m going to make time to see it.

RDT: I read a couple reviews saying Rami Malek’s performance is amazing, and the Live Aid stuff is great. But the movie itself is lacking. One review even said it was a disservice to Freddie Mercury’s memory/legacy.

Rick: I think I landed on some of the same reviews as RDT. The fact that this seems to be a cookie cutter biopic frustrates me. I will forever want to see the far bolder version that Sacha Baron Cohen was on board to do. What a waste of an opportunity. At least we still have their music to revel in.


The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

Loren: Yeah but nah, you know?

RDT: Looks real pretty, but not for me.

Rick: This just looks like a mashup of Alice in Wonderland and The Chronicles of Narnia. I mean, it’s pretty, but it doesn’t do anything for me.


Nobody’s Fool

Loren: I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Tiffany Haddish is the female Kevin Hart. Nothing about that trailer looked funny to me, except maybe that bit at the end with Whoopi and the bad connection. But only one funny joke and way too much of Ms. Haddish is all I need to know about this one.

RDT: Whatever Loren posts, I agree with 100%.

Rick: There’s a line in the trailer that should be the tagline for this movie: “My sister is a bit much”. It’s also an understatement. I barely made it through two and a half minutes. No way I’d last ninety. Continue reading

LA Comic Con Cosplay 2018

LA Comic Con Cosplay 2018

We went off to LA Comic Con once again last weekend. The con has been growing steadily and this year was the biggest yet in it’s short tenure. On top of all the great con stuff, there is always a tremendous amount of Cosplay. Here’s some of the best we saw.



 

Let us know what you think about these fantastic Cosplays down in the comments!

From Hollywood,

Weekend Watch – 10/26/18


Welcome to the Weekend Watch. Where we try to point you towards the best ways to spend your viewing time (or, at least, steer you clear of the garbage).

Movies

Wide Release

Suspiria

Loren: Well that certainly looks different than the Argento version we just watched. Besides the witches and the ballet school, this looks to be much more “realistic” in it’s violence. As long as it moves at a bit of a faster clip I can see people enjoying this remake. It’s got the right people behind it.

Rick: Like Halloween last week, I’ve been on a media blackout for this movie since the first teaser dropped. I’m incredibly curious how this one turned out.

Jen: Tilda Swinton immediately ups the creep factor of any film. This looks very disturbing and I like it.


Hunter Killer

Loren: I wish that I liked Gerard Butler or cared more for submarine movies. This could be a good couch watch down the road though.

Rick: This looks like just the kind of dumb/overdone action movie I can throw on after a long day at work.

Jen: Hot guys in a submarine, this looks like dumb action fun, I wouldn’t go out of my way for it, but wouldn’t shut it off if it appeared on a streaming device.


Johnny English Strikes Again

Loren: I normally like British humor but I’ve never gotten anything from Rowan Atkinson. This looks like a less funny Johnny English movie which are like 2 steps behind Austin Powers movies and like 4 behind Spy with Melissa McCarthy. No thanks.

Rick: Ahhh…mmmm…ehhh…no.

Jen: But I didn’t see the original Johnny English, I think I’d be lost in such a plot-dense story. Continue reading

Weekend Watch – 10/19/18


Welcome to the Weekend Watch. Where we try to point you towards the best ways to spend your viewing time (or, at least, steer you clear of the garbage).

Movies

Wide Release

Halloween

Loren: I’m getting a little tired of the 25+ year later sequels that we’ve been getting but if they’re all done as well as this I might change my position. In.

RDT: This looks really good….and I may even see it….. eventually.

Rick: Apart from the very first teaser trailer I’ve been on a media blackout on this. I won’t have time to catch it this weekend, but I’ll find time next week. Fingers-crossed it’s as good as its early buzz.

Jen: This trailer scared me and I love it! I love Laurie Strode as a sort of Sarah Conner in Terminator 2-style tough chick. The Original Halloween is one of my favorite horror movies of all time and this is, I hope, a worthy follow up.


Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Loren: I appreciate that Melissa McCarthy is doing something that doesn’t involve her farting and getting slammed into a wall. Don’t be the female Kevin James, never be the anything Kevin James.

RDT: I’m intrigued. I’ll keep it on the radar.

Rick: Is this just now coming out? I saw a trailer for this in the theater like six months ago. Anyway, I’m in.

Jen: Damn you Melissa McCarthy, I just can’t quit you. Except for that puppet movie – I was able to quit that one.


Limited Release

Mid 90s

Loren: I grew up watching skate videos in the mid 90s so this hits a lot of nostalgia feels in that respect, but I also grew up in a small town in Connecticut and didn’t really get into a lot of trouble so I don’t really connect on that level. I’ll give this a go eventually.

RDT: Rotten Tomatoes score is pretty good (88% as of this writing). I’ll check it out once it’s streaming.

Rick: Are the 80s out already? We’re making 90s movies now? I’m curious, but not overly so. I’ll see how the reviews are. Also, that title feels like something marketing came up with. I mean, how will we know when the movie takes place if it’s not in the title? *mouthfart*

Jen: Meh? I don’t trust Jonah Hill as a writer/director yet. Prove me wrong, movie! Continue reading
