Weekend Preview: Dreamworks Face

Here’s your weekend preview, degenerates:

Movies

The Rum Diary: An adaptation of the novel Hunter S. Thompson wrote as a 22 year old.

Rotten Tomatoes: 51%

Uninformed Commentary: Like many other self-styled creative types of my generation I have a huge hard-on for Hunter S. Thompson. I honestly don’t give a f*ck what critics think (SUCK IT H8rs!) . The Rum Diary isn’t so much a great narrative as a great exploration of voice and style in modern writing so I can see why a bunch of stodgy old people reviewing movies (who probably didn’t take the time to read the book) wouldn’t get it. I still think this movie is going to be awesome.

In Time: Justin Timberlake plays a Robin Hood like character going up against Pete Campbell from Mad Men in a dystopian future where the rich buy immortality at the expense of the poor.

Rotten Tomatoes: 36%

Uninformed Commentary: This looked positively derptastic from the trailers so it’s no surprise that everyone hates it. Does anyone play entitled prick better than Vincent Kartheiser? I say no.

Puss in Boots: A Shrek spin-off featuring voice work from Antonio Banderas (he’s so sexy)

Rotten Tomatoes: 79%

Uninformed Commentary: Ahhh!! Dreamworks face!! Cats without pants! Make it stop!

TeeVee:

I’ll admit, I’ve been having pretty severe Breaking Bad withdrawal the past few weeks, but it’s been somewhat mitigates by a very good sophomore season from Boardwalk Empire, a comeback by Dexter, and a new favorite of mine: Homeland, which just got a second-season order. Basically, if you have access to premium channels then the TV landscape isn’t quite so barren. If you don’t, well then sucks to be you.

Sports:

The World Series continues to chug along into a seventh game tonight, even though no one cares at all about either of the teams.

Saturday’s best college football matchups are: 11. Michigan St. @ 13. Nebraska and 9. Oklahoma @ 8. Kansas St.

NFL Picks found here.

Have a fun and safe weekend.
