It’s finally here. The end of summer has arrived. I suppose most of those going back to school dread it, but i love fall. The fall season has the best weather of there year and hopefully some of the best movies of the year as well. Let’s take a look at what is coming out this season starting with… SEPTEMBER.
George Clooney is always a treat to watch on screen and in The American he seems to be the movies single driving force. Unfortunately the trailer doesn’t seem to offer up anything else, leaving me to wonder if this is worth a watch at the theater or should I wait for DVD?
Going The Distance
I will own up to the fact that I judged this movie to be crap upon hearing the plot and title a few months back. But now that the trailer is out I am pleasantly surprised. The movie looks like it has some real wit and charm. Starring real life couple Drew Barrymore and Justin Long, the Distance also hosts some really great supporting characters including Christina Applegate, Jim Gaffigan and Charlie Day.
Off the bat, the trailer looked great! Now that I have seen it I can tell you first hand Machete is a really wild ride. Stay tuned for an FTS review.
Resident Evil: Afterlife
Having never been much of a fan of the series I more than likely won’t be checking this out anytime soon. In fact every time I see the trailer I keep thinking the next one will be called Resident Evil: Seriously There’s Another One
The Virginity Hit
This one looks interesting. A movie for the YouTube age where friends are always filming and “fail” can be seen all over the globe. The trailer is ok and looks like the entirety of the movie might have some pretty funny gags. But my question is whether or not I can stick with the premise and enjoy the movie start to finish.
As I always say: everyone loves a Boston crime drama. The town seems like no exception. The only thing that bothers me in the trailer is that it seems to give away a huge plot twist. I can’t be sure until I see the movie though.
My brain hurts when I think about this one. The trailer looks good. It really does a good job making me want to see the movie. Well, all except the part that says “from the minds of M. Night Shyamalan.” Every time I’ve seen this trailer in theaters everyone is really digging it until they see that title, then the ‘BOOs’ and ‘Aww Mans’ hit. I have the same reaction and just hope he doesn’t have too much to do with the story, script or direction of this movie.
While the movie is obviously geared towards the high school crowd, I see a small section of appeal. Emma Stone is one of my favorite new actresses and I firmly believe she will do her best in the role
Alpha and Omega
Really couldn’t care any less about this. I watched the trailer a while back and I think I immediately forgot what it was about :/
Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga Hoole
I feel like people who listen to Evanescence will be into this movie. The animation looks beautiful but I have absolutely no interest in these kind of stories at all. Pass.
I gotta say, I love this cast! Sigorney Weaver and Jamie Lee Curtis are so likable and, dare I say, hot! I pray I can look as good as they do when I get older. Maybe some would consider this a guilty pleasure pick, but I think this movie looks perfectly cute. Plus it has Betty White in it and this is totally her year.
Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps
I have not seen Wall Street. I also am not a huge Oliver Stone fan. But I LOVE Michael Douglass. Should I see this? What do you think?
