Weekend Preview for March 25

Your time is valuable and at the end of a long week, the discretionary time must be spent to its maximum value. In order to help narrow choices down on the film and television front, every Friday we’ll give you the rundown of your options and an educated guess as to which ones make the most sense. There is a very complex formula involved. Usually, that formula includes us watching the things and then telling you if they’re good. OK, we admit it’s not exactly the recipe for Coke, but we’re trying to help.

I predicted the box office returns for this film last Sunday, but I must admit that my track record hasn’t been too accurate thus far.

On the Screen

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Hero-Unit-on-Fandom_NativeAd_1600x900_Batman-v-Superman_R1

Director: Zack Snyder
Stars: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Amy Adams
Current RT Meter: 30% Fresh
My box office prediction last Sunday: $195,500,000

To say this film has been polarizing is an understatement. Now that people are seeing it, and lots of them are as Thursday’s monstrous $27,700,000 indicates, the jury will finally be out on who gets the last laugh. The reviews have skewed to the negative and there’s definitely a hive mentality swelling on social media. But, as Jurassic World reminded us last year, buzz and reviews are no match for hard currency.

The Verdict: It’s a flawed film but one that definitely delivers spectacle and a lead-in to Justice League. Will audiences derail the DC Universe? Doubtful.

On the Console

Day of the Tentacle Remastered

Day-of-the-Tentacle-Remastered

One of the great games of yesteryear gets a facelift and a chance to reach a whole new generation of gamers. Day of the Tentacle been redrawn and polished up with a sheen that helps makes the 20+ years since the LucacArts classic was released seem like naught. It’s one of the early games from the legendary Tim Schafer and one not to be missed.

The Verdict: Storytelling never goes out of style.

Fallout IV Automatron DLC

Since people cannot get enough of Fallout 4, this DLC comes at just the right time and with it bunches upon bunches of robots, weapons, and objects to build the gigantic world of the game even larger. As time sucks go, it’s tough to compete with this.

The Verdict: Robots make everything cooler.
