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).
All The Money In The World
Loren: A couple things besides the recasting/reshooting of this movie. A) That trailer seemed WAY too long and B) is Mark Wahlberg miscast or the most miscast? Discuss.
RDT: Much like Rick below, curiosity will get me to see this. Maybe not in theaters, but definitely eventually.
Rick: I mostly want to see this to try and catch any glaring mis-matches from the reshoots. Why yes, I do work in post-production. Why do you ask?
Jen: The most miscast.
Loren: This movie should probably be called Molly’s Cleavage but that’s besides the point. It looks pretty good, I guess. Not run out to the theater good, but see it someday good for sure.
RDT: I’m intrigued. Heard decent things and know very little about the story. Plus, I’m quickly becoming a Jessica Chastain fan….
Rick: I’m not even going to try and make a gambling pun. I’ll leave that to every single movie reviewer who sees this. I’ll just say that I’m definitely seeking this out.
Jen: I think I read this book? Or at least a Vanity Fair article? She does NOT love Tobey Maguire. On that we agree. I’d watch this from my couch for sure.
Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool
Loren: That’s a pretty great final line in the trailer. I don’t know that I’ll see this but I might. How’s that for decisiveness?
RDT: (read Rick’s first…) That guy was also The Thing in Fant4stic. But let’s not ding him for that too much. This looks pretty good. I think I’ll catch it streaming, too.
Rick: Cripes, that guy was Billy Elliot…*looks it up*…seventeen years ago?! I’m so old…My impending infirmity aside, I’ll catch this one, but likely on ye ol’ streaming service.
Jen: Sure, why not.
