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).
Ready Player One
Loren: I actually read the book that this was based on (first book I’ve read cover to cover in *redacted due to shame*) so I’m really looking forward to it. I think Spielberg is the best choice for this, it’s just too bad that they couldn’t license everything the book has in it. I kinda can’t wait to see how they pull this off because there are clearly some changes made between book and movie.
RDT: I loved the book, but haven’t been impressed with any of the marketing. I mean, I’m going to see it. I’m just not sure I’m going to like it.
The Lady™: I’m so stoked that Loren borrowed my copy of the book. We can finally sit together and shamelessly nit-pick differences between the text and film! 😀
Tyler Perry’s Acrimony
Loren: Never seen a Tyler Perry movie, don’t think I’ll start with this one.
The Lady™: Taraji P. Henson scares the crap out of me. This isn’t helping.
God’s Not Dead: A Light in the Darkness
Loren: The last line of the song they used was “Let love explode and bring the dead to life”. Uh… what? I don’t think that’s how that works. Also, that’s pretty risqué for a God movie.
RDT: This is the 3rd one of these, right? Passed on the first two. Don’t see why I would end that streak now.
The Lady™: ZOMG I’M SO EXCITED TO NEVER SEE THIS MOVIE! YAYYYYY!!! Continue reading
