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 Equalizer 2
Loren: More of the same from the first. Having just seen the original the character is fresh in my mind, but I still don’t see myself rushing out to see this.
RDT: I enjoyed the original (if you can call a remake of a tv show “original”) a lot more than I thought I would. But, I’m so behind on movies, if I make it to the theater this weekend, it likely will not be to see this.
The Lady™: This looks pretty bad ass. However, I didn’t even know there was a first one. So the chances of me seeing the second are about 0.00002%.
Jen: The original TV “Equalizer” was Edward Woodward. I so enjoy saying that name ‘Edward Woodward’ it just rolls off the tongue. No offense to Denzel Washington. In regards to the movie, I never saw the first one and I don’t feel remiss.
Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again
Loren: The big question is; is the threequel called Mamma Mia: My My, How Can I Resist You? Or Mamma Mia: Does It Show Again?
RDT: I saw the first one once, in a free screening, 10 years ago. Apparently, there was a reel missing (back in the days before digital projection). I didn’t notice. So, yeah…..
The Lady™: I’m neither old enough nor young enough to have any interest in this movie.
Jen: They are reusing a lot of the same songs from the first one, which is fine, I guess. I just think maybe they could have done the sequel set to some other band’s greatest hits catalog instead. Why not an Ace of Base musical? I’d watch Cher sing “The Sign” any day of the week.
Unfriended: Dark Web
Loren: This looks cheap but also ok. I guess you can do that sometimes. I’m definitely not seeing this in the theater, probably ever if I’m being honest.
RDT: Horror + “didn’t see the first one” = No RDT.
The Lady™: It’s really difficult to get into a horror movie when you don’t care if the people die. This is why you don’t touch other people’s stuff!
Jen: I’m sure a lot of teens will see this and it will make its money back. Good for them, because I’m out. Continue reading
