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).
Super impressed by her Bad Moms trailer breakdown, we’ve invited Jen to join the (unpaid) staff! Welcome Jen! We can’t wait to see what you have for us next!
Loren: I pretty much said everything I wanted to about this my trailer breakdown. I’m going to see it this weekend. If it holds up to First Class and Days of Future Past we’ll call it a win.
RDT: Nothing I’ve seen of this gets me excited. I like some stuff better than others and am going to see it regardless. But..yeah….we’ll see….
Rick: Early word is not promising. Apparently there are lots of long-winded speeches. There’s also the added difficulty of Apocalypse looking like a Power Ranger villain. I still have hope, though.
Jen: I may be the only person on the planet who doesn’t love JLaw as Mystique and this trailer doesn’t change that. But Sansa Stark as Jean Grey, and the presence of Nightcrawler (Bamf!) ensure I will attempt to see this in the theater, forget to see to this in the theater, and then catch it on demand in three months when I remember that I forgot to see it in the theater.
Alice Through the Looking Glass
Loren: Didn’t see the first one, probably won’t see this one. It looks more like a ride at Disneyland than a movie.
RDT: No thank you.
Rick: In spite of the WTFutterwacken dance at the end, I still enjoyed the first movie. I never expected a sequel, but Disney likes brands so it stands to reason the we got one. I may matinee this or just wait for video if I see it at all.
Jen: I wish they’d picked a more on-the-nose song for this trailer. I’ll likely catch this on DVD when my daughter is old enough for it (if DVDs still exist at that point, if not I’ll catch it on tiny disk they insert directly into your brain). Will spend opening night watching this instead
