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).
Loren: I’m super curious about this and we are 100% through the uncanny valley at this point but I’m not hearing great things and can totally wait until streaming for this one.
Rick: The original script for this was uncommonly good. It deserves a quality adaptation, especially after how long it took to get produced. I had high hopes for this, but early word is that it’s kind of dismal. Makes me sad. At least we still have this awesome reel for Joe Carnahan’s unrealized version starring Clint Eastwood.
Jen: For some reason I thought this was for Netflix. Huh. I’m a Gemini Woman and even I don’t have strong feelings on seeing this movie.
AJ: Will Smith kinda needs a hit, doesn’t he? This doesn’t seem to be it, though. It looks pretty atrocious.
Loren: I want this to look better. I laughed at the Frogenstein’s Monster joke but that’s kinda it. With the talent involved here this should be amazing and it’s just kinda meh.
Rick: This looks sillier than I would have hoped, but the voice cast is great and I appreciate that the character design harkens back Charles Addams’ original art. Not in theaters, but definitely from my couch.

AJ: Yeah, with Rick on this — I’ll catch this from my couch. I think it looks silly. But cute.
Loren: Yes please. Without even watching the rest of the trailers I’m pretty sure this wins the week.
Jen: This looks great and the trailer pulled me right in, I can’t wait to check this one out.
AJ: Um, dare I say, that looks outstanding? You can’t ignore the over-the-top amazing reviews this film is getting. Continue reading
