Weekend Watch – 4/27/18

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

Wide Release

Avengers: Infinity War

Loren: Infinity War is ten YEARS in the making and early buzz is that it’s good! I might even go as far as to say that this is the flick I’m most excited about this summer. We’ve got tix for Thursday night so when you’re reading this, know that we’ve already seen it and most likely have opinions!

RDT: This is all I care about this week, at least regarding pop culture.

The Lady™: https://media.giphy.com/media/vMEjhlxsBR7Fe/giphy.gif


Disobedience

Loren: Hasidic Lesbians. Now there’s a pitch meeting I would have love to have been at.

RDT: All I care about is Avengers: Infinity War but I like these actresses a lot.

The Lady™: Woah. That looks beautiful, and intense, and I am totally in.


The Escape of Prisoner 614

Loren: I can’t tell when this movie takes place. Like there’s no cell phones or computers but there are regular phones and modern looking motorcycles. It could be 1964, it could be 1994, it could be 2014. Otherwise this looks like a movie.

RDT: All I care about is Avengers: Infinity War but this looks kind of weird/funny. Maybe.

The Lady™: I heart Martin Starr so much. Could be really fun, or really boring? I’m cautiously intrigued.

Wide Release

Blockers

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.


Chappaquiddick

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.
