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: This looks gorgeous and epic and well acted, I just don’t really do war movies. Never been my thing.
RDT: I dunno, I like Nolan a lot. And, as Loren said above, it looks great. But I’m just a little burnt out on WWII movies.
Rick: I’ve been anxiously awaiting this since I saw the special IMAX preview attached to the Rogue One 70mm screenings last December. Excited doesn’t quite cover it, but it’ll have to do.
Loren: I know there’s an audience for this. I am not it.
RDT: Where’s Jen when we need her???
Rick: It has a great cast, but I’m unlikely to see it. Maybe on a lazy Saturday when it’s streaming.
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
Loren: If anything is getting my money this week, this is it. I’ve been a Luc Besson fan since The Professional (Léon) and this looking like the spiritual sequel to The Fifth Element has my interest piqued. Even Lucy, garbage science aside, had some decent action scenes. Hopefully Dane Dehaan and Cara Delevingne don’t Dane Dehaan and Cara Delevingne it all up.
RDT: This might get me back into a 3D screening. It just looks so pretty.
