Weekend Watch – 7/28/17

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

Atomic Blonde

Loren: Let’s hope this is more Furiosa and less Aeon Flux.

RDT: 

Rick: 

Jen:  charlize theron GIF


The Emoji Movie

Loren: Is there an emoji for “nope the fuck no, get the fuck outta here with this lame ass bullshit”? Asking for a friend.

RDT:

Rick: A garbage idea for a movie begets garbage marketing:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yep. That happened.

Jen: I’m such a no on this that I won’t even use an emoji to express my feelings. Sad face. Poop icon.


An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power

Loren: I’m with Rick on this one. I’m glad this is a movie but I already know all of this.

RDT: What everyone else said is similar to what I would say.

Rick: I’m glad Al Gore is still out there stumping for climate science, but this is preaching to the converted for me.

Jen: Al Gore is doing his part to save the world. If only a few more people were paying attention.

You read that right. With all the news coming out of #SDCC2017, we split this week’s episode in half (you’re welcome, Dave). So, here’s part 1 covering most of the non-DCEU and non-MCU news.

All that and a few the tangents.

Weekend Watch – 7/14/17

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

War for the Planet of the Apes

Loren: The first of these movies made me very uncomfortable with all the Malfoy abusing ape parts. I have yet to bother with the sequel so the same will probably hold true for this one.

RDT: Well damn, I guess I’m the outlier this week. I really liked the first two. So count me in for the 3rd, and final (nobody believes that, right?), film in this trilogy.

Rick: I can’t bring myself to care about this prequel story arc. I feel like it’s more interesting not knowing how it all happened. Also, spoiler alert from 1963: The apes win.

Jen: Dammit Dicky-Dick! Well I’m out now. Kidding… although I have seen all the original Apes films, I’ve not seen any of this new series and I’m sort of OK with it.


Wish Upon

Loren: It’s good to see that Barb is still a killjoy that presumably gets what she deserves. In this case what she deserves is being in this standard ass looking fable.

RDT: Horror. Not my thing.

Rick: So, it’s “The Monkey’s Paw” shoved into a Hellraiser-esque mechanical box. It’s not the worst idea, though it has the same look of nearly every lower budget studio horror movie that’s come out in the last decade. Maybe once it hits home video.

Jen: Meh, it sure is a horror movie.


Battle Scars (Limited)

Loren: War movies are not my thing. I like my violence less realistic and hopefully involving Nicholas Cage.

RDT: Not gonna lie, for the first 30 seconds of that trailer, I thought it was a documentary. When I saw the lap dance I was like “Damn, they really got personal.” Then I saw the JAG guy and was like “Oh. I’m an idiot.” As to the quality of the film, doesn’t look ½ bad. Maybe…?

Rick: No. I think I’m good.

Jen: Meh, it sure is a war movie.

Weekend Watch – 7/7/17

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

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Loren:  happy dancing spider man GIF

RDT: It’s good. Not perfect. But still, really, really good.

Rick:

 

 

 

 

 

Jen:  wtf marvel comics nerd spider man GIF


A Ghost Story

Loren: “A meditative poem about the enormity of time.” K.

RDT: Ok, that looks terrible, pretentious as fuck. But I’m still kinda curious. The whole ghost thing is weird. So, I’ll likely check it out streaming.

Rick: In.

Jen:  its the great pumpkin charlie brown halloween costumes oh good grief GIF


Do You Take This Man (Limited)

Loren: I don’t know you guys, that looks pretty gay. And also a pretty wonderful character piece. I don’t know that I’ll see it but I bet it’s pretty good.

RDT: I dunno, other than the gay aspect of it, it looks like a fairly standard story. I like the cast though. So, I may check it out eventually.

Rick: What RDT said, though I’m not sure I’ll ever get around to it.

Jen: This feels like one of those “West Side” stories of affluent LA-ites that live a life so different from me as to be unrecognizable as co-habitants of the same city. But, Mackenzie Astin. So, toss up?

Weekend Watch – 6/16/17

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

Cars 3

Loren: The trailers are kinda dark and ominous for a Pixar movie. Even if it’s as “adult” as Toy Story 3, I have no attachment to these characters and see this franchise as a cash grab.

RDT: This looks kinda dark for a Pixar movie. Regardless, I only saw the first one and have no desire to revisit the Cars-verse.

Rick: This is one of the few Pixar outings that I can’t bring myself to care about.

Jen: Well this certainly looks better than the Cars 2, but that’s not saying too much. I’m really unsure what the message is here? Is it about aging? Second chances? Believing in yourself? Not selling out? Selling out? The idea that Lightning McQueen would be put off by stuff with his image on it when I see at least four Lightning McQueen backpacks at preschool every day strikes me as, dare I say, ironic? So, probably a no.


Rough Night

Loren: One of the movies I hate the most in this world is Very Bad Things. It’s awful. This looks to be that but with ladies. Maybe this can replace that horrendous movie in my brain, but I’d have to actually see it to make that happen.

RDT: I like the cast, but that’s about it. I’m sure I’ll give it a watch once it hits the stream.

Rick: Meh. Looks like the original title (Rock That Body ) was dropped in favor of something more generic. And is it me or does Jillian Bell play the same character in everything she’s cast in?

Jen: Those who know me, know I love a wild girls-night-out. It feels like this could have been a fun female The Hangover. Instead it looks like an un-fun female Very Bad Things. Maybe buzz and reviews will prove me wrong and I’ll check it out, but likely I’ll just have my own actual night out instead of watching theirs.
