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).
The Angry Birds Movie 2
Loren: Did the first one (that was well past its own sell by date) do well enough to warrant this?
RDT: It’s weird for me to say this about a movie in English (I assume) but….. yeah, I’m never going to watch this movie.
Rick: This…this is still a thing? Who’s clamoring for anything Angry Birds-related anymore?
Jen: Was the first one a hit? Is this the original cast? Isn’t anyone thinking about the pigs? So many questions!
AJ: Do people still play Angry Birds? I mean, I guess there’s an audience for this…..?
Josh: We did this to ourselves.
Loren: Look I’m not rushing out to the theater for this one but it was pretty funny. In the right mindframe I think this could be a lot of fun… from my couch.
RDT: I laughed. I did. I’ll keep an eye out for it streaming.
Rick: I enjoy the occasional raunchy comedy, but I’m kind of turned off by this.
Jen: Unlike Josh, there is no option here, I am too old for this.
AJ: I bet this was a fun one for the MPAA to work out…. I enjoy this whole idea. I admit it. I laughed my ass off with the trailer. I am also curious of America is going to show up to watch vulgar children drop f-bombs and anal beads on the big screen.
Josh: This movie looks like I’m either going to love it or come to the sad realization I am too old for this kind of humor.
47 Meters Down: Uncaged

RDT: Fun fact! This was originally called 48 Meters Down. That’s all I got.
Rick: Ahhh, Sharksploitation movies. I get a kick out of thee. The first movie was surprisingly decent, though I thought the ending was kind of a copout. I’ll watch this one just to see how gruesome these insufferable characters’ deaths are.
Jen: I can tell from the title this won’t be the best film ever made a number and a punctuation mark? Too much.
AJ: I won’t even watch Jaws. (Rick, I enjoy the word “Sharksploitation.”) (AJ, you should watch Jaws.)
Josh: Ok, so it’s like a psychological thriller about being trapped and running out of-oh no, it’s just a shark. Nah, I’m good. Already been done. Continue reading
