Looking at the Weekend: Apr. 19-21, 2019

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): This looks like religioius claptrap to me.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Looks like a sincere, albeit heavy-handed religious drama.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): The film looks too treacly for me and was trying to get its message across way too loudly.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): This has likely already been done better in March of the Penguins, so what’s the point?
Peter J. Patrick (PP): I have a soft spot for penguins.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): It may prove to be interesting, but half the trailer is about other Disney films which doesn’t feel like a good sign.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): There’s not a lot to this trailer that looks relatively pedestrian.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Dullish looking drug drama.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): The film puts a human face on drug trafficking and the reasons why someone might try it. It could be an interesting film.

  • Original Song (TL)

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): The song presented in the trailer is superb and it gives me hope for a rare, quality original musical.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Subway set musical long in gestation doesn’t look very appealing.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): I am always interested in an original musical, though this trailer did not give away any of the plot of the film.
