New Movies In Theaters This Friday, October 16, 2009
Wondering what movies are coming out to theaters this Friday, October 16, 2009? Here is a list with my intentions to watch at the movies, rent, watch on TV, or skip all together.
DEFINITELY WATCH AT THE MOVIES
Where the Wild Things Are
Even though I have never read the book by Maurice Sendak, I have really enjoyed the clips from the movie I have seen so far, enough to get me excited to see it.
Where the Wild Things Are Synopsis: Maurice Sendak’s classic book comes to the big screen in an adventure tale for every generation. Where the Wild Things Are follows the adventure of Max (Max Records), a mischievous young boy who is sent to his room after rebelling against his mother (Catherine Keener). Max’s imagination is free to roam, and it soon transports him to a thriving forest bordering a vast sea. Delighted, he sets sail for the land of the Wild Things, where mischief reigns and Max rules. In bringing this imaginative fantasy to life, Jonze leads a team of filmmakers incorporating the most dynamic elements of voice performance, live-action puppetry and computer animation.
New York, I Love You
Very similar to “Paris, Je t’aime” in format. I got a chance to see an early screening and quite enjoyed it. I would recommend it if you enjoy short stories and also enjoyed “Paris, Je t’aime”. Also be on the lookout for my full review soon.
New York, I Love You Synopsis: A collaboration of storytelling from some of today’s most imaginative filmmakers and featuring an all-star cast. Together they create a kaleidoscope of the spontaneous, surprising, electrifying human connections that pump the city’s heartbeat.
DEFINITELY WATCH ON TV
Law Abiding Citizen
Even though I do like Gerard Butler, I think that I’ll end up waiting to see this one on TV.
Law Abiding Citizen Synopsis: The story follows a man (Gerard Butler) who guy decides to take justice into his own hands after a plea bargain sets his family’s killers free. His target: The district attorney who orchestrated the deal.
HELL WILL FREEZE FIRST
The Stepfather is just not my type of movie, so it’s a skip for me.
The Stepfather Synopsis: Michael returns home from military school to find his mother happily in love and living with her new boyfriend. As the two men get to know each other, he becomes more and more suspicious of the man who is always there with a helpful hand.
