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).
The Invisible Man
Loren: I wasn’t so sure about this, especially after the marketing blitz that we’ve gotten, but it looks pretty damn good. I’m a solid maybe here.
RDT: Part of me really wants to see this. I know, I’m just as shocked as you are. But then the other part of me reminds that first part of me that I’m me. So…. I’ll watch it when/if Rick screens it.
AJ: You know it’s a strong mother-effing trailer when it scares the living daylights out of me but I still want to see it. I will come with a change of pants.
The Jesus Rolls
Loren: I love The Big Lebowski and everyone in this movie but it looks absolutely terrible. Bummer.
RDT: Confession time. I’ve never seen The Big Lebowski. I’ve tried, a lot. I even own it. But I just get about 10 minutes in and get bored. I know! I know….. So, yeah, regardless of whether it’s needed, wanted or neither, I have no interest in “The Jesus.”
Rick: I don’t understand why this needs to exist. I think John Turturro was the only person clamoring for this spin-off. Also, I can’t wait to see how many reviews use the term “gutter ball”.
AJ: According to the critics, Turturro did not learn the most pivotal of rules: “Don’t fuck with the Jesus.” Probably should have left this one alone, John. I’m sorry.
Loren: I love British things and everyone in this movie but it looks absolutely terrible. Bummer.
RDT: The benefit to dropping in my comments so late, is I have everyone else’s to guide on what’s not worth my time. Thanks, guys!
Rick: Um, no thanks. I got annoyed just watching the trailer.
AJ: That trailer is waaaay too long. Horrible. Does this movie have a plot? Is it just “we are having a party” and that’s the big thing? I’m unmoved. No thanks. Steve Coogan, you are better than this. This could have been really timely and funny. Continue reading
