We’re running a little late this week, and I don’t know how to do the top picture Loren usually drops in. So, you’re gonna have to deal.
Happy FriYAY! –RDT
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).
A Wrinkle In Time
Loren: I’m not gonna lie that looks pretty incredible. I don’t remember reading the book when I was a kid and I’m actually glad for that so I can go in fresh and not know where the story is going.
RDT: Early reviews are not great. And, honestly, I’m just not wowed by it. I’ll probably catch it eventually, but as of now, I’m in no rush.
Jen: Yes, yes, yes! I read all of the books in the series. I wanted to be Meg Martin! I don’t have a spirit animal, but if I did it’d be a combination of Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon, and Oprah, so, yeah – they’re getting my money.
The Strangers: Prey at Night
Loren: I didn’t see the first one, so I might be lost. This also doesn’t seem like my type of horror movie. Maybe down the road but I doubt it.
RDT: Though I’m not a horror guy at all, surprisingly, I did see the first one. If this is anything like that, I’ll pass.
Jen: Excellent use of Tiffany. But no, I’m not seeing this.
The Hurricane Heist
Loren: Hahahaha that looks hilariously bad and I’m kinda all about it. It’s like Geostorm meets Hard Rain and that’s a good thing.
RDT: What Loren said.
Jen: My Jason from True Blood meets Shannon from Lost fan-fic is finally being made! Yes!
Loren: I’m pretty sure Joel Edgerton’s character was written for Jason Bateman and David Oyelowo is playing this a little too over the top for my personal taste. I think I’ll probably pass.
Jen: Oh yeah, I can TOTALLY see that being Jason Bateman, now I can’t unsee it. I keep seeing posters for this around town and the cast is surprisingly stacked, but it just isn’t sucking me in enough to see it.
