Let’s Talk About The First Avengers: Infinity War Trailer!

It finally happened you guys! It’s been a long time coming, but we have been gifted with the first trailer for Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War and I gotta say, it’s so rad seeing all these MCU characters together in one place. I don’t want to waste too much time with explanations of these characters and their motivations before breaking this bad boy down, especially seeing as this will be the nineteenth (holy shit!) movie in the MCU and we’ve gotten to know the characters from this now truly expansive universe pretty well over these last ten years. Interestingly, this trailer does appear to be different than the one they produced for Comic Con earlier this year, but there’s still plenty to unpack here so let’s talk about the first Avengers: Infinity War trailer!

Weekend Watch – 11/03/2017

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

Thor: Ragnarok

Loren: I couldn’t be more into this movie if I tried. Out of all the Marvel movies that came out this year, I’ve been most excited for this one. This is a no brainer.

RDT: 

The Lady™: 

Jen: This week my husband leaves for Europe for 10 days. Before he goes I am making a point to get out of the house and see this. It may be all I can see for a bit, but worth it.


A Bad Moms Christmas

Loren: The first one was pretty funny, let’s hope this lives up to that. I’ll check it out down the road but I’m not rushing out to the theater for it.

RDT: I love this cast, but only made it through the first half of the first movie. Not sure I’ll make it to this one.

The Lady™: I’m usually super lazy about seeing things in theaters, but this one looks like too much fun to miss. Plus it’s a great excuse to have a bottle glass of wine beforehand.

Jen: I will see this, but it may not be until my husband returns and I get my well-deserved Mom’s Night Out. It does feel appropriate that I would not see this right away due to the stresses of being a mother.

Limited Release

The Light of the Moon

Loren: Whoa. That might be a little too raw for my personal taste but damn if the performance from Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn 99) doesn’t look powerful.

RDT: I agree with Loren. Might be a little too raw for me as well, but Stephanie Beatriz’s performance looks especially compelling.

The Lady™: This looks really beautiful and really intense. I’m 100% guaranteed to ugly cry.

Jen: Glad to see that range for Stephanie Beatriz. This looks so real compared to so many Hollywood versions of rape or sexual assault. Continue reading

Stan Lee’s LA Comic Con 2017 Cosplay!

Last year I said this about Stan Lee’s LA Comic Con:

Last weekend L.A. got their very own Comic Con thanks to Stan (The Man) Lee. This year’s updated Comikaze felt much more like a true Comic Con, even if the panels are still on the main floor. More organized, larger, and what felt like more Con-goers than ever before.

The same rings true this year, but you know, more. If they keep growing they can easily rival the WonderCons of this world and get even closer to San Diego and New York status. There are still a few organizational flaws that I would change and I definitely would move the “Main Stage” from the show floor but that does set SLLACC apart from other cons.

One of the best parts about this convention being so close to Halloween is that the Cosplay is pretty damn outstanding. Here’s some of the best we saw:

Stan Lee’s LA Comic Con Cosplay 2017

We’d once again like to thank Stan Lee’s L.A. Comic Con and all of the Cosplayers for making this another great experience. We’ll be back next year.

From Hollywood,

Weekend Watch – 09/29/17

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

American Made

Loren: Plus side, Tom Cruise is playing a not so great guy, which he doesn’t do very often. Down side, this doesn’t look all that great. I’m a meh.

Rick: Because I’m tired and still kind of ill, I’ll be answering all of my entries with Tom Cruise gifs:

Jen: I guess. This doesn’t look bad, it just doesn’t make me want to run out and see it. It feels almost like a Wolf of Wall Street light.

The Lady™: I’m pretty into watching Tom Cruise’s descent into ridiculousness. Can’t wait for it hit HBO streaming!


Flatliners

Loren: Speaking of meh. How about this unnecessary remake? I just can’t imagine it’s going to be any good. Unless I hear absolutely phenomenal things, I can almost guarantee that I’m out.

Rick: 

Jen: Kiefer Sutherland’s in this, right? Is this in the original Flatliners universe? Is this a prequel, sequel, reboot? I guess I’ll never know because I’m not going to see this.

The Lady™: I’m a huge fan of the original film, and Nina Dobrev. I’m definitely going to see this, and I’ll almost definitely be disappointed.


‘Til Death Do Us Part (Limited)

Loren: They may not be for me but I love that there is a subgenre of Black Family Thrillers. This one may not be good, but I’m glad that it exists.

Rick: 

Jen: I do love me some Taye Diggs. This feels like a nice double feature with The Boy Next Door on a lazy Sunday.

The Lady™: Is this a remake of a Lifetime Original Movie?
