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 Disaster Artist
Loren: Having not seen The Room I feel like this will be lost on me.
RDT: I feel like I need to see The Room first. There’s gotta be a double-feature playing somewhere, right?
Rick: I know many of us at the HPN’s Preferred Franco™️ is Dave, but I have a lot of time for the Original Franco™️. Having experienced The Room in all its glory, I’m anxious to see how this turned out.
Jen: If wanting to see a movie where the Franco brothers have homoerotic tension is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
Loren: Who would have thought that Woody Allen would try and bridge the story between Boardwalk Empire and The Sopranos. Anyway… here’s Wonderwall.
RDT: The older I get, the less I get Woody Allen. Unless reviews are amazing, I’m likely out for this.
Rick: *checks watch* Is it Woody Allen movie season already? Man, this year has flown by.
Jen: Is this part of the Jim Belushisance I’ve been hearing nothing about? Do you think he gets a lot of roles that would have gone to James Gandolfini?
24 Hours to Live
Loren: I was already kinda in, and then *wham* Ser Davos shows up. In.
RDT: Looks kinda fun in a Crank meets 24 way. Sure, I’ll give it a shot on the old streaming box.
Rick: Things I enjoy: well-choreographed action sequences and revenge movies. That’s two big boxes ticked for this one. Sure, they stole the implanted countdown clock from In Time, but this looks explodey and punchy enough to make me forget that little transgression.
Jen: This looks…fine. Not for me, but fine, nonetheless.
