We want to welcome you to our newest feature, Weekend Watch. Each week, we’ll give you, the reader, a heads up on what’s new and noteworthy (or not so noteworthy) for the weekend. We won’t cover everything because it’s a lot, and we’re lazy. However, we will try to point you towards the best ways to spend your viewing time (or, at least, steer you clear of the garbage).
We also want to take this opportunity to introduce you to our newest contributor to the site. So let’s all welcome Rick with open arms. And wallets. (He thinks he’s getting paid.) Rick, say hi!
Hi everyone! Rick here. Thanks to Ryan (but not Loren, cause he’s a stinking liar) for letting me contribute to this fine web site.
Knight of Cups
Loren: Is this the one with Dinklage and the dude from True Blood?
RDT: Isn’t that Game of Thrones? Regardless, I know literally nothing about it, but I’ve never seen a Terrence Malick movie before, so why start now?
Rick: I don’t care for everything of Malick’s I’ve seen (I’m sorry but, despite the subject matter being right in my wheelhouse, Badlands bored the hell out of me), but his more recent output has been more languid and philosophical, which I kind of dig. In.
London Has Fallen
Loren: The trailer made it look kinda like a fun action movie. The reviews say it’s absolute dog shit. Didn’t see Olympus, probably won’t see this.
RDT: I didn’t care when Olympus fell. I don’t care about London falling. And I won’t care when the 3rd thing (the moon?) falls, either.
Rick: Like Ryan, I didn’t give a damn when Olympus fell. I do kind of want to see this one, though. I blame the unintentionally hilarious tagline that conjures up images of a half-assed Shaft sequel. “The Irish mob wanted London. They got Shaft instead. Get ready for bloody Hell!” (Rick, I would watch the hell out of that movie. –RDT)
