September Movies to See and Skip

As the summer drew to a close August proved to be a month with not much going on the movie department.  Movie theatres became so desperate that during Labor Day weekend they decided to re-release The Avengers, The Amazing Spider-Man, Brave, and even The Hunger Games.  Bad news movie fans, September looks to be filled with only a few glimpses of hope.  I am going through movie withdrawal.  I have not been to see a movie since the incredibly unfortunate Bourne Legacy.

September 7th 
The Words
Bachelorette (limited)

Poor Bradley Cooper, this one trick pony keeps getting such poor material, The Words looks like another flop/bad film.  Bachelorette, looks like an even meaner version of Bridesmaids, while it could be funny, I am glad I am on call at work this weekend.

September 14th 
The Master
Resident Evil: Retribution
Finding Nemo 3D

The Oscar season begins this week! Paul Thomas Anderson has the first Oscar calibre film release of the year with The Master.  The film has an incredible cast, has been getting glowing reviews, and looks fantastic.  I am incredibly excited this take on a scientology, I mean The Cause a different cult religion. It's sad that the best animated film of the year is going to be a re-release of Finding Nemo in 3D, but what a great film.  I have no words for another Resident Evil film.

September 21st
Dredd 3D
End of Watch
The Perks of Being a Wallflower
House at the End of the Street

Is Judge Dredd still relevant? No, moving on. End of Watch could prove to be a better leading vehicle for Jake Gyllenhaal, but the film looks iffy.  The Perks of Being a Wallflower is solid film and worth a watch!  Poor Jennifer Lawrence has slipped into a crap commercial horror film, but you can't fault her for one mistake.

September 28th
Won't Back Down
Trouble with the Curve 

I go back and forth on Looper, but Rian Johnson is a solid director, and with Joseph Gordon Levitt on board, I am there.  Won't Back Down looks incredibly heavy handed, but could have mass appeal.  After Clint's performance at the RNC, his latest film Trouble with the Curve may get even more attention, and the good thing is that movie looks solid.

See: The Master, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Trouble with the Curve, Looper

Skip: Dredd 3D, House at the End of the Street, Resident Evil:Retribution, The Words
