September Movie Preview

August 31, 2011

Take Shelter

September 30

Michael Shannon is one of my favorite actors. he is totally underrated and always does good work. I’m stoked for this end of world flick.  An added bonus is that this is directed by Jeff Nichols (Shotgun Stories). Jeff is the brother of Ben Nichols who is the front man for Lucero. Expect a great score and soundtrack.

 

Shark Night 3D

September 2

Bad CGI sharks + Bad Acting= Awesome. The plot is incredibly intricate. College students get eaten by sharks in a salt water river.   I might skip the 3D though. I don’t think I could pay $15 dollars to see this. Good for a double-header Drive in night.

 

Warrior

Sept. 9

Finally MMA gets a decent movie with great actors. I hope the sport is represented well and the fights are believable. I love MMA and it is great to see  actors like Joel Edgerton and Tom Hardy beating each other up.  The plot centers around brothers fighting in a championship bout. An added bonus is that it is directed by Gavin O’Connor (Miracle)…So hopefully we get some great speeches. I might just shed a man tear.

 

Drive

Sept 16

Director Nicolas Winding Refn is insane (Bronson, Valhalla Rising). It is great to finally see him go mainstream. I can’t wait to watch Ryan Gosling go head to head with Albert Brooks.  I like most movies about Driver’s driving fast while being chased by bad guys. The only negative is Carey Mulligan. She is always “acting.” I hope Refn reins this in. I will see it opening night.

 

Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil

 

Watch this preview! Two rednecks go on vacation and are mistaken for killers. The teenagers think they are in Deliverance….The rednecks wonder why they went to a cabin for vacation. This seems much like Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon. I loved that flick. This seems super fun as well.

 

Contagion

Sept 9

What seems like thousands of A-list celebrities battle an unstoppable virus. Steven Soderbergh handled the A-list cast of Traffic well. I have no worries what he will do with this flick.

 

Red State

Sept 23

I don’t know what to think about this film. Kevin Smith’s last films haven’t been great. Cop Out was quite possibly the unfunniest thing ever. Smith says this is his return to form. He has been taking it on the road and it is getting a great reaction. However, I wonder what people who are not in the cult of Kevin will think of the movie. Either way, I enjoy Kevin Smith. I like having him around.

 

Straw Dogs

Sept 16

Not sure they needed to remake this. I like James Marsden a lot though. I think he will do okay in Dustin Hoffman’s role. Plus, it is good to see Alexander Skarsgard on the big screen. I’m thinking this movie could either work really well or be just another lame remake. Either way Erik fans will love it.

 

Burke and Hare

 

Simon Pegg, John Landis and Andy Serkis. You can’t beat that trio. I’ve heard the movie is only sub par but that won’t deter me. I am a huge Pegg fan.

 

Machine Gun Preacher

Sept 23

I’m happy to see Gerard Butler not playing a rakish womanizer or angry guy yelling “Sparta.” He will have to act in this film and I think he will knock it out of the park. Plus, the plot about a former drug addict fighting to protect Sudanese orphans sounds  interesting.

 

Pearl Jam

 

Cameron Crowe directed this doc about super grunge band Pearl Jam. I dig rock docs. If you don’t watch this check out Anvil  on Netflix.
