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 mean, do I want to see John Cena ass chug a beer? Kinda. Am I going to run out to the theater to see this? Absolutely not.
RDT: Look, I was very pleasantly surprised by Game Night. This could be the same… Or it could be The House. If reviews are decent though (and they seem to be), I’ll keep it on my radar (or maybe go see it Saturday afternoon).
Jen: I didn’t want to laugh at that, but… oh God, I might actually see this movie? I mean I have a daughter so may as well prepare myself.
A Quiet Place
Loren: I really dig the concept here I just hope that it can sustain through a 2 hour movie. And, hey, good for John Krasinski in his second outing as a feature director to get a big budget/high concept horror movie.
RDT: Well, Loren, I’m happy to report it’s only 95 minutes. A couple reviews I’ve read said it’s one of the scariest movie ever, likening it to Jaws and The Birds. As such, I will likely watch this, through my fingers, from Rick’s kitchen, maybe this fall.
Jen: This looks awesome. I love the silence and can imagine myself not even wanting to move in the theater to make a sound. This will probably be an amazing movie going experience and I think I might make it out to the theater for it.
Loren: I don’t know that I need to know the untold true story here. I feel like I already know everything I need to.
RDT: I am all set, thanks.
Jen: That guy really looks like Ted Kennedy. Good casting! I have few other feelings on this film.
