Ok let’s get this party started with part two of films I want to check out this fall. If you have not seen part one of this feature feel free to check it out right here. Went with some more action packed films with this second installment. I’m going to have to do at least one more of these fall previews to fit in all the films I am interested in.
Machete Kills: Robert Rodriguez’s second installment in his proposed Machete trilogy will be blowing up stuff at a theater near you shortly. The first installment was an over the top ridiculously silly, violent homage to B-action films and this sequel looks to be even more insane. Fans of Rodriguez’s style are looking forward to this film and the majority of folks are going to hate this movie. I plan on checking it out as I see a scene with Mel Gibson wearing a cape. Expect outrage about violence and sexuality in films when Machete Kills opens on October 11th.
The Monuments Men: Written and Directed by Mr. Suave George Clooney, this film is an adaptation of Robert M. Edsel’s true account of a group of art historians and museum curators during WW2. The group goes behind enemy lines in attempt to save precious art treasures before the Nazis get their filthy paws on them. Apparently when George gives you a call to be in his movie you don’t say no. Just look at this amazing cast, George Clooney, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, John Goodman and Bill Murray. As a history buff, I am pretty excited about checking this one out on December 18th.
Carrie: Chole Graze Moretz and Julianne Moore star in this remake of the Stephen King novel. Glad to see they are going all in with an R rating on this film and not pulling any punches. Could this finally be a frightening horror film at a theater? Or will this film end up being a poor imitation of the original film? At the very least it has to be better than that made for TV remake from about ten years ago. Find out and judge for yourself on October 18th.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug: Haters gonna hate on this film. Complaints abounded about the first film, ranging from it was too long, to it did not adhere to the canon strictly enough, and the always popular Jackson should not have made three films. Personally, I enjoyed the first installment, it was an immersive three hours of fantasy entertainment. Is it as good as the LOTR? That is sort of like comparing apples and oranges as anyone who has read the source material is aware. I will be checking out this film when it hits theaters on December 13th. As an added bonus I plan on seeing it at the luxury theater so I can recline in a leather chair and have a waitress bring me a few pints.
So are you planning on checking any of these films out and are you on The Hobbit hate wagon? Wow I still have nine more films on my list that I did not get to discuss this week. Looks like we will have another feature on fall films I want to check out coming your way next week. Till then enjoy these two great pics.
These golden books cracked me up
Love this shot of Sigourney Weaver
