Andy’s KSL-TV #WhatToWatch: ‘The Flash’ and ‘Elemental’ clash this weekend for box office glory

Andy Farnsworth joinsKSL-TVto help audiences decipher #WhatToWatch for the weekend of June 16, 2023.  Two big movies are opening against each other; Warner Brothers’ “The Flash” and Disney’s”Elemental” is setting up a divisive weekend at the box office. The DC Superhero is a very enjoyable, though not perfect superhero movie that also brings back Michael Keaton as Batman. The animated Pixar film’s sincere story about the immigrant experience has some amazing visuals, but a few head-scratching moments near the end. “Elemental” also boasts an excellent animated short before the movie starts called “Carl’s Date” with old man Carl from “Up” and his dog named Dug. (Don’t miss Producer KellieAnn’s quick take on both “The Flash” and “Elemental” after Andy’s segment.)

Other options include the start of season 2 of “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” streaming on Paramount Plus; the very interesting Netflix documentary “Arnold” about Arnold Schwarzenegger; Chris Hemsworth’s “Extraction 2” on Netflix; The horror comedy “The Blackening” in theaters; and another documentary streaming about “Stan Lee,” this time on DisneyPlus.  And
