The Hitman’s Bodyguard: Here are a bunch of reviews of this terrible-sounding movie comparing it to food: “The Hitman’s Bodyguard is the comfort food of action comedies, like mac and cheese with a side of extreme violence.” “Like a meal at the Cheesecake Factory, it is filling and unsatisfying.” “The Hitman’s Bodyguard is the Fuddruckers of movies: obnoxious, filled with kitschy music, and only digestible to the most undiscerning palates. It’s cinematic dog food.” Anyway, it’s HBO’s big Saturday night movie, so I thought I’d mention it. Instead of watching this, you should watch one of the movies below: 7 p.m., HBO
