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: I’m seeing this tomorrow with friend of the podcast Brad, who absolutely loves the book. It looks so weird and refreshing, I’m really looking forward to it.
RDT: I also am seeing this Friday with friend of the podcast, ummm, myself. I liked, but didn’t love, the book. Looking forward to the movie.
Jen: I am very interested in this. I like the creepy sci-fi aspect. I love the kick-ass cast. Yeah, I’m giving this one a go for sure.
Loren: There’s only one way for this to end right? The Body Swapper finds their true form and they can be together? Or maybe we all learn a valuable lesson in not wondering how movies like this play out.
RDT: I’m intrigued by the premise, but also think Loren is 100% spot on. So, maybe streaming…?
Rick: What Loren said.
Jen: I can’t top Loren’s comment here.
Loren: Dammit. I laughed a couple times during that trailer. I mean, I’m not running out to see it in the theaters, but I’ll catch it streaming.
RDT: I have a movie gift card burning a hole in my pocket. This got enough chuckles out of me to catch it “for free” soon, if I have the time (I’m very busy…).
Rick: I expected to roll my eyes at this, but I came away with some actual laughs. I’ll catch this once it’s on ye ol’ streaming device.
Jen: This looks like a fun watch. Kudos to this trailer for getting this bunch of cynics interested. I’ll check it out!
7 Guardians of the Tomb
Loren: Kelsey Grammer is Lara Croft in Arachnophobia. Also, good idea to use the Guardians of the Galaxy font for your title card, just to get those few people that weren’t paying attention to the actual trailer to think that this is another one of those.
RDT: James Gunn actually called them out for the font. (I have nothing else to contribute…)
Rick: This looks Geostorm-level terrible. I kinda want to see it.
Are We Not Cats
RDT: You are correct. We are not cats.
Rick: I don’t even know what to make of this. Is it some weird-ass take on Cat People? Is it just being weird for weird sake? I kinda need to find out.
Jen: So I couldn’t resist doing some digging on this movie and it gave me all sorts of “nope” vibes. Nope.
