October’s the movie month I’ve been waiting for (Saw IV!) and there’s lots to look forward to this month. Check out what’s in theaters this month and what we recommend going to see.
Michael Clayton – A political thriller starring George Clooney. It’s sure to be a great movie. Clooney never fails to deliver.
My Kid Could Paint That – A documentary about a four-year-old whose paintings have sold for thousands of dollars. Lame.
The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising
– A young boy learns he is the last in a group of immortal warriors. Harry Potter-ish, kind of. The previews look good at least.
Lars and the Real Girl – Ryan Gosling stars as a guy who orders a doll over the internet, and then dates it. I don’t care how bad it sounds – Ryan Gosling is awesome.
We Own The Night – Mark Wahlberg and Joaquin Phoenix star in a cops and mafia drama where one’s a cop and one’s semi-mafia-type. The trailers look excellent, and the two actors are always fantastic, so October 12th may be a double-feature kind of day.
Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married – I don’t think anything Tyler Perry has done has been funny, so this is the only movie on my not-to-see list this week.
30 Days of Night – Josh Hartnett and vampires. I’m in! Vampires take over a town in Alaska where they have 30 days of night to roam around and hunt. Josh Hartnett is the police officer trying to keep the townspeople alive.
Gone Baby Gone – Ben Affleck directs his little brother Casey in this crime drama based on a Dennis Lehane novel. Set and filmed in Boston, I’m already biased to like it.
The Nightmare Before Christmas in 3-D – There’s absolutely no reason to go see this. The original is wonderful. Why ruin that with IMAX and 3-D?
Saw IV – Today’s the day! The fourth movie in the Saw franchise, I have been waiting for this movie to come out since Saw III ended. I don’t care how bad it might potentially be – I will be in the theater on October 26th.
Dan In Real Life – Steve Carell stars as a window who falls in love with his brother’s girlfriend, before knowing she’s his brother’s girlfriend, of course. Despite the ubiquitous Dane Cook, this looks really cute, and might give Carell a chance to stretch his rom-com talents.
