Wide Release

Life of the Party

Loren: The only thing that made me even smirk in that trailer was Maya Rudolph. Pass.

RDT: I chuckled just enough to consider it when it’s streaming in a few months.

The Lady™: I didn’t want to find this funny. I’m very over these types of movie. And yet, vaGoogle kinda got me…

Jen: I could watch this on a lazy, hungover Sunday on my couch eating pizza after an epic night of partying. Oh wait, I’m in my 40s? Yeah, never mind.


Breaking In

Loren: I like Gabrielle Union and this is a fun spin on the “Home Invaders” trope. I won’t see this in the theater but I’ll check it out down the road.

RDT: Just badass enough for me to give it a watch on the old ‘Flix or ‘Lu (as the kids are calling it) or whatever streaming service it ends up on.

The Lady™: Cool! Lady’s a badass! Totally not for me, but cool.

Jen: I usually hate movies like this but damn if I didn’t find myself rooting for Gabrielle Union even in trailer form! Maybe it’s the mom in me, but this looks badass and fun. In.


The Seagull

Loren: Was this trailer made in 1999? That’s a lot of people for a movie that doesn’t look so good. I can’t even imagine this is paying for all of their boats. I’m very confused.

RDT: I am stumped for a comment. So, yeah….

The Lady™: I love that this looks like it’s from 1999! The art of the great one and done movie kind of died after the 90s. I have a feeling I’ll end up watching this more than a few times.

Jen: Ah, Chekov’s gun! That’s all I got. Continue reading

Overboard

Loren: RyanReynoldsButWhy.gif. Also, I had forgotten how fucked up that premise is. If I’m super bored some afternoon maybe, but I’m not putting any effort into this.

Rick: Super nope.

The Lady™: Nooooo thanks! There are so many things wrong with the premise of this film, I can barely get past the trailer. I’ll rewatch the original and blissfully ignore all the problems in that one.

Jen: Was anyone asking for this movie? I mean, it’s fine, just… unnecessary.


Tully

Loren: I am definitely not the target demo for this movie.

Rick: I’m probably not the target demo, but I’ve been looking forward to this one.

The Lady™: This looks really great, but also kind of emotionally traumatizing? It might hit a little too close to home for me, and I don’t even have kids!

Jen: I am definitely the target demo for this movie. It hurts my whole body every time I see that breast milk spill.


RBG

Loren: Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a badass. I will add this directly to my queue the moment it hits Netflix.

Rick: RBG FTW.

The Lady™: ZOMFG, she’s so tiny and SO amazing!!
RBG for President! RBG for Pope! RBG for my adopted grandmother!

Jen:  Continue reading
