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: So, I love Wallace and Gromit but this looks a little off. I won’t see it in the theater but I’ll probably check it out eventually.
RDT: Interesting counter-programming to Black Panther. I doubt I’ll see it in theaters, but maybe streaming?
Rick: I enjoy everything Aardman has done. I’ll definitely check this out, but likely from my couch.
Jen: My dislike of animation does not extend to claymation. I’ll give it a watch.
Loren: Eh, I guess that “Erotic Thrillers” are not really my bag.
RDT: I’ll wait for the American remake starring…Rooney Mara.
Rick: You had me at Francois Ozon.
Jen: Not Natalie Portman? This actually looks like a sexy, weird, fun ride. I would check this out.
First We Take Brooklyn
Loren: Eesh. First off, no. Secondly, that’s a terrible trailer. It simultaneously gives everything away and says nothing. That last needle drop is way too overpowering. You can’t make out what anyone is saying for the last 20 seconds of the trailer because you wanted the “coming straight outta Brooklyn” sound bite. Just awful.
RDT: No thanks. You can keep Brooklyn.
Jen: Ugh, nope.
Loren: *Big Groan*
RDT: Why are all indie movies starting to look the same? Or have they always looked the same? Also, all these people look like assholes. Whatever.
Rick: Guess I’m the outlier on this one. I’ll keep it on my radar.
