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: Oh John Cena’s voice, what are you thinking going against Star Wars: The Last Jedi? Just replace “me” with this movie in the following gif:
RDT: I understand Star Wars is PG-13, but still. Isn’t every kid in the world going to see that this weekend? I mean, Rick is totally right below. Makes no sense releasing this now. As for the quality of the trailer? Meh.
Rick: I question the logic in releasing this against Star Wars. I mean, there was no way this movie was going to do super well. Why not release it the week before and at least get some of your budget back. Why completely hamstring it?
Jen: The ad for this pops up during “Trolls Holiday” (which we’ve watched more than a couple of times) and every time my daughter makes me fast forward through it. If my almost 4YO is bored by it then I don’t know how well it would fare even without the competition.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi
The Ballad of Lefty Brown
Loren: I’m kinda down with the whole resurgence of the Western. I might check this out down the road, but this week it’s all about Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
RDT: It’s A24, so I’ll at least give it a shot. Also, I’m not opposed to checking out a western now and again.
Rick: This looks to have everything I wanted out of the Magnificent Seven remake minus all the garbage. I found it via Amazon on-demand and already added it to my queue.
Jen: I really want to love Westerns you guys, but unless there are androids I’m out.
