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).
Solo: A Star Wars Story
Loren: I know, I know, this movie shouldn’t exist. But it does and god dammit I’m kinda into it. As a lifelong Star Wars fan, I always like seeing more of the galaxy that Lucas created, which no matter what we’re getting here. And how could you be mad at Dong Lover’s portrayal of Lando. You can’t. Early word is it’s “fun”. That doesn’t necessarily mean it’s good but I’ll take fun. In.
RDT: I am so back and forth on this. Hopeful, but not excited….? I dunno. I already have tickets, so I guess it’s moot.
The Lady™: I’m one of the two people who actually really enjoyed Ehrenreich’s performance in Beautiful Creatures (Hey, Crystal!) I’m trying to remain cautiously optimistic and not get too excited. But, also….STAR WARS!!! SQUEE!!
Jen: Jen’s out, but she wanted to make sure you knew that she’s “super psyched to see Lando, which is opening this week. So glad they’re doing a good Lando-based prequel.”
Loren: Ah yes, the old sexy period drama. This time with the added bonus of X-Men Origins: Mary Shelley. I’m sure The Lady™ will want to see this. If she’s watching it and I’m around so be it.
RDT: Meh. Can we just get a new, good, Frankenstein movie? Or not. Nevermind.
The Lady™: Loren is correct. This was already on my radar, and I’m very excited for it!
Loren: Sighted people never look blind, it’s a fact. Anyway, this movie looks like a decent thriller filled with pretty people. I don’t see (get it) why I wouldn’t watch this, streaming of course.
RDT: I feel like I’ve seen this movie before, like a lot. Pass.
The Lady™: God, I love Natalie Dormer so much. I’m not likely to see this in theaters, but you bet your butt I’m gonna hop on it the second it hits streaming. Continue reading →
