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).
Mission: Impossible – Fallout
Loren: I’m sorry that looks awesome. The Mission: Impossible movies are by and large pretty good. 1 still holds up, 2 and 3 are not great, but the new trilogy has so far been a lot of fun. Early word on this is it’s excellent. I’m very excited.
RDT: I like 3! Only 2 is complete garbage to me. And I think this looks awesome.
The Lady™: MUSTACHE!!!! (Also, even though it’s completely outside my wheelhouse, I’m still suuuuuuper excited for it.)
Rick: *me heading to the theater to see this*
Teen Titans Go! To The Movies
Loren: Damnit. I don’t really like Teen Titans Go’s humor but I laughed at some of the stuff from that trailer. I’m not going to see this in the theater but I’ll watch it eventually. Plus anything to wash that Titans trailer from my mind.
RDT: I’ve never seen, or had any interest in, the show. Which is a little off for me, given the DC nerd that I am. Oh well….
The Lady™: I worked at a restaurant where for some god forsaken reason all the TVs were permanently on Cartoon Network. I’ve now seen almost every episode of Teen Titans Go! on mute. Maybe I’ll watch this on mute if I’m ever feeling nostalgic for the “weird old days.”
Rick: There are not a lot of animated shows I actively dislike, but this one is at the top of the list. WB took a high quality, well written Teen Titans series and dumped it in favor of this obnoxious garbage. The hardest of passes.
Loren: Don’t worry everybody, Randy Couture is on the case. Yikes. Even for this slasher sub genre, this looks bad.
RDT: I’m all set, thanks!
Rick: Looks like most every killer on college campus slasher movie where the final girl needs to find out the school’s buried secret. I’d be fine with that if it didn’t look like a barely ready for cable thriller.
Loren: An interesting story to tell but I will have a hard time with the whole Nazi thing.
RDT: No thank you.
The Lady™: WWII was a horror movie, so putting a psychologically damaging horror story in the middle of it doesn’t seem that far of a reach for me. I’m pretty tempted to traumatize myself attempting to watch this.
Rick: That looks kind of interesting. I’ll keep it on my radar. Continue reading
