Hold on to your britches this weekend cause we’ve got a slew of debauchery. Lost nuclear weapons, gambling, reanimation, and sex, sex, sex! These are your TV watchin’ options and they’re sure to keep you on your toes.
CHECK OUT WHAT THEY ARE AFTER THE JUMP!
ALL TIMES ARE EASTERN/PACIFIC
FRIDAY JULY 24th
Reasons to Watch: John Travolta should only play bad guys. He does them so over the top and spastic you wonder why he isn’t popping pills the entire film. Then you’ve got Christian Slater doing his best Jack Nicholson impression while him and cute redhead Samantha Mathis try to recover a nuclea weapon. It’s Jon-Woo-Crazy-Action-Fun-Time!
Reasons to Watch: Profiles physicists, who in the 1970s figured out a method of improving their odds at the roulette wheel. Can anyone say easy money? Now can anyone say broken kneecaps?
WHO’S ON LATE?
Amy Poehler; Nick Griffin; Judy Collins
Seth Rogen; Rose Byrne; Eric Hutchinson
Tom Arnold; "Trailer Park Boys" Rob Wells, Joh Paul Tremblay and Mike Smith
Bob Saget; Anthony Mackie; John Mulaney
Rashida Jones; chef Jose Andres; Dobie Maxwell
SATURDAY JULY 25th
Network: Fox Movie Channel
Reasons to Watch: One of Mel Brooks’ greatest. Everyone is genius in this movie. Especially Gene, who let’s out a shrill, frantic scream unlike any other actor working today. I laugh myself to tears when he gets locked in the room with Frankenstein. "Moommyyyyy!"
Reasons to Watch: Nathan Fillion makes this show. It’s a fun, entertaining cop procedural, and it got renewed for the fall season so you better catch up now.
SUNDAY JULY 26th
FOR LOVE OF THE GAME
Reasons to Watch: Kevin Costner plays a Detroit Tigers pitcher in this Sam Raimi directed film about baseball and flashbacks of a whirlwind romance. It’s not the greatest movie in the world, but Raimi’s love for America’s favorite pastime shines through. Though it would be sweeter if Ash cut some heads off in the outfield.
Reasons to Watch: Word of advice: don’t type’hung‘ into Google when looking for pictures of an HBO show. You won’t get pictures of a TV show. But I promise if you watch this dark comedy produced by Alexander Payne you’ll get much more pleasant results than I just did…
