I have this terrible habit of saying I want to see movies in the theater, but then when it’s time to actually go I usually postpone…indefinitely and end up watching them on demand at home. Sad I know. But I sit in the dark in front of a computer all day so it’s hard to convince myself to do that in my free time. That being said, here’s a list of movies coming out this fall that I will
definitely maybe go see in the theater.
1. Ides of March:
A political thriller directed by George Clooney, and starring Clooney along side Ryan Gosling…and Philip Seymour Hoffman, Evan Rachel Wood, Paul Giamattie and Marisa Tomei (and lots of other people). I read that it’s takes itself a bit too seriously but I can seriously watch all of those people be kick ass actors any day.
Figured I’d get the other Ryan Gosling movie out of the way right off the bat…I do want to see it partially because of him and partially because I think this is one of a few movies that my husband and I will both appreciate. Yes he’s a stunt driver (point for husband), but other things happen too that don’t involve driving (I hope). Drug heists and love and noir. Can’t be bad.
3. J. Edgar:
A Clint Eastwood drama about the founder of the FBI starts Leo DiCaprio and sounds pretty good in my book
A comedy about a 27 yr old who is diagnosed with cancer (Joseph Gordon Levitt). Cancer could be funny…let’s see how this goes. Also has Seth Rogan and Anna Kendrick
5. The Big Year
This is a movie about competitive bird watching with Steve Martin, Owen Wilson and Jack Black. It’s either going to be the funniest movie I’ve ever seen or the worst movie I’ve ever seen. I’m willing to take that chance.
6. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
I can’t help it, this is a visually compelling movie to me and I love a little bit of Robert Downey Jr being drunk and neurotic.
What are you guys out there looking forward to seeing? Thoughts?
