Weekend Watch – 07/13/18

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).

Movies

Wide Release

Skyscraper

Loren: Look I’m not out or anything but this just looks silly. However, if I didn’t have a backlog of movies I want to see in the theater, this might be the perfect flick to beat the heat that this horrendous heatwave has brought upon us.

RDT: I desperately want to see this, no joke. But, like Loren, I’m super behind on movies. So, this might have to wait a bit.

Jen: This looks terrible…ly awesome! Ridiculous, but worth some popcorn and A/C time for sure.


Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation

Loren: *Sigh* I know kids are the audience for these things but aren’t they supposed to have jokes for adults too? Also sweet Gru impression there Drac. *Sigh*

RDT: Jen wins.

Jen: This movies wants to suck my blood, but instead it just sucks.


Eighth Grade

Loren: This is the writing and directorial debut for stand up comic Bo Burnham. He came to prominence when he was young on YouTube so the social media aspect of this most likely comes from personal experience. I’ve heard nothing but good things about this movie and it looks equally heartfelt and heart wrenching.

RDT: This just slotted in front of Skyscraper.

Jen: I cringed so hard during this trailer I wonder if I can manage to get through the whole thing. It definitely took me right back to being 12 years old and that actress is fantastic. It’s going on the list. Continue reading

Weekend Watch – 07/06/18

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).

Wide Release

Ant-Man and the Wasp

Loren: 

RDT:  

The Lady™: 

Jen: 


The First Purge

Loren: I’m always interested in these. I never see them but I’m interested. I guess if I’d see them all I’d want to know about how it all began, but maybe it hits a little too close to home for me.

RDT: Haven’t seen the others, so why would I start with the first one? Oh, wait….still, pass.

The Lady™: Is it weird that this one makes me want to go back and see the first one?

Jen: Oooo, topical… but I’ll pass.


Sorry to Bother You

Loren: Yes please. I think I saw this trailer with Deadpool 2. I was in then, I’m in now.

RDT: I have no idea what I just watched. But I’m kinda into it.

The Lady™: That was some seriously weird shit. SOLD!!

Jen: This looks so cool and different and fun and Tessa Thompson is the best, so I’m in. Continue reading
