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).
Loren: Plus side, Tom Cruise is playing a not so great guy, which he doesn’t do very often. Down side, this doesn’t look all that great. I’m a meh.
Jen: I guess. This doesn’t look bad, it just doesn’t make me want to run out and see it. It feels almost like a Wolf of Wall Street light.
The Lady™: I’m pretty into watching Tom Cruise’s descent into ridiculousness. Can’t wait for it hit HBO streaming!
Loren: Speaking of meh. How about this unnecessary remake? I just can’t imagine it’s going to be any good. Unless I hear absolutely phenomenal things, I can almost guarantee that I’m out.
Jen: Kiefer Sutherland’s in this, right? Is this in the original Flatliners universe? Is this a prequel, sequel, reboot? I guess I’ll never know because I’m not going to see this.
The Lady™: I’m a huge fan of the original film, and Nina Dobrev. I’m definitely going to see this, and I’ll almost definitely be disappointed.
‘Til Death Do Us Part (Limited)
Loren: They may not be for me but I love that there is a subgenre of Black Family Thrillers. This one may not be good, but I’m glad that it exists.
Jen: I do love me some Taye Diggs. This feels like a nice double feature with The Boy Next Door on a lazy Sunday.
The Lady™: Is this a remake of a Lifetime Original Movie?
