So, each Friday we get a list of movies that are debuting either in theaters, streaming, VOD, or all the above. Most of the time, if it’s not a major release, we just kind of gloss over this. However, one movie, “Vengeance,” caught our eyes because of the description. “A radio host from New York City attempts to solve the murder of a girl he hooked up with and travels down south to investigate the circumstances of her death and discover what happened to her.” Obviously, you know why we were intrigued. However, after watching this trailer? Now we’re REALLY all in.
If the character of the radio host looks familiar that’s because it’s BJ Novak from “The Office.” And whereas we thought that “Vengeance” would be a thriller, it actually looks like a really interesting comedy/dramatic-comedy playing on the “true crime” obsession of America (Debbie included), “where people invent these conspiracies because the truth is too hard to accept.” It looks like the weekend may be pretty much a washout, so this may be a good time at the movies for ya.
