Weekend Watch – 4/22/2011

So it’s been a couple weeks since we’ve done a Weekend Watch, but fear not, because we are back.  As usual, we want to take a few minutes to discuss our plans for the weekend and brag about how whatever we are doing/watching/reading is much better than what everyone else is doing/watching/reading.  You are encouraged to chime in below.


I’ve had Inglourious Basterds on my shelf for about three months.  I haven’t seen it since I saw it in the theater, because literally the day I bought it, my BluRay player died.  Having just obtained a new one, I plan to see that it is watched.  I also have The Man With No Name Trilogy on BluRay, and friends who have not seen The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly.  I intend to fix that.

Update: Chris reminded me that Portal 2 is out.  I am hoping he buys it so that I can play it.


Besides watching the new episode of Game of Thrones on Sunday, my weekend will be spent between work (lame!), churching (Easter!) and reading (sweet!).  After spending the last year reading solely the Wheel of Time series, I have made it a personal goal to read more than one book and/or book series at a time.  So, at the recommendations of Tom (and a random pony-tailed guy on the street yesterday… so randomly cool),  I have added Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy to my now-reading book list, which is comprised of A Song of Ice and Fire and Neil Stephenson’s Quiksilver. Tron: Legacy may happen tonight as well.


After watching all of Stella on NetFlix (which is awesome btw), I’ve been working my way through the semi-followup show Michael & Michael Have Issues. Slightly less zany, but still very good.  And, I’m pretty sure Third could work as Michael Showalter‘s stunt double.  I’m also going to be checking out I Love You Phillip Morris, a jailhouse romantic comedy starring Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor.  Yup.

And, I have to remind Wade that while there are still people out there who haven’t seen The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, those kind of people aren’t your friends.


I’m with Tom on this one… there are no excuses for not having seen The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

Beyond that, I don’t know what I’m doing this weekend. Since I just finished Portal (that is an awesomely clever game), maybe I’ll go get Portal 2. I was holding out to see if I could convince someone else to buy it, but I’m not sure that will happen so I may have to bite the bullet.

    Jon, I may be buying TRON this weekend. If so we should watch it, pre-GoT.
