This Week in Movies – 9/8/08

I think the Fall movie season might be starting. Finally, some decent movies!

In Theaters:

  • Burn After Reading – Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Frances McDormand, John Malkovich, and Tilda Swinton all mixed together by the Coen Brothers. Need I say more?
  • Righteous Kill – Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino team up again in a cop thriller. Neither of them have done much lately, but this one actually looks decent. I’ll probably catch it on video.
  • Tyler Perry’s The Family that Preys – See what he did there? I’ve never seen a Tyler Perry movie and I’m not going to see this one, but if you liked the others, you’ll probably like this one and it’s sure to make a mint. I just don’t get it.
  • The Women – Something something, old ladies, something something, cheating spouses, something something, I couldn’t care less.

On Video:

  • Baby Mama – Tina Fey + Amy Poheler = yes please!
  • The Forbidden Kingdom – Jet Li + Jackie Chan = in the queue.
  • The Fall – Spike Jonze & David Fincher presenting + Trippy movie = good rentals across the board. It’s a Christmas miracle.
