"Fall" for Movies!


As the leaves begin to change and we uncover our jackets...the fall brings us more than just the cool weather.  This fall is going to bring us some serious heavy hitters! Get ready for it!


Here are some of the ones I'm looking forward to and some that I think may be a flop:

Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps
September 24th


Who doesn't love a sequel? And Shia Labeouf? ...Enough said.

Check out the trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oV5hEBqYfTE
 


Now a movie that I'm not so sure about:

Buried
September 24th (limited release)



Ryan Reynolds is trapped underground with only a cell phone and a lighter as co-stars.  This movie has been heralded as "for the suspense-lover" but "not for the claustrophobic".  An interesting concept, but whether the movie itself will actually be interesting is yet to be seen.

Watch the trailer for yourself...

I hope this is good:

The Social Network
October 1st


A movie about the most popular social network on the planet.  Facebook has grown into a multi-million, or should I say billion, dollar phenomenon. Now we can watch and see how it all began, the ins and outs, the ups and downs, and Justin Timberlake : )

I'm sure these last three will be great:

Conviction
October 15th


As the tagline says, "The incredible story of Betty Anne Waters", and oh what an incredible story it is!  After just only watching the preview, I cannot wait to see this movie!  I already know that I will have to wait to see it until October 17th, but please check back on the 18th for my comments.  This movie looks like it has Academy Award written all over it!  Hilary Swank plays Betty Anne Waters, a working mother, "who puts herself through law school", to defend her brother, played by Sam Rockwell, who is convicted for murder.  This movie promises to be gripping and smart.  A must see...I can feel it!

The Company Men
October 22nd


The Company Men is the first film adapted, covering the current economic climate.  Ben Affleck, Tommy Lee Jones, Kevin Costner are just some of the names in this film.  Whether you've been there, or are still there now, I'm sure this film will be relatable.

Welcome to the Rileys
October 29th













After the death of their teenage daughter, Doug Riley, played by James Gandolfini, takes a business trip to New Orleans where he meets a teenage prostitute, played by Twilight's Kristen Stewart, and attempts to care for her as his own daughter.  I am excited to see a harsher side of Kristen Stewart and a softer side of James Gandolfini in this touching drama.
