This Week in Movies – 9/22/08

In Theaters:

  • Choke – Sam Rockwell in a movie based on a book by the author of Fight Club about a con-man who fakes choking in fancy restaurants. You can bet it’s going to be crude and violent. If it’s you’re type of thing, you already know about it.
  • Eagle Eye – Shia LeBeouf has a guardian angel … or does he? Either way, looks like fun.
  • Miracle at St. Anna – Spike Lee’s latest joint about an all black unit in WWII that gets trapped behind enemy lines. I don’t know much about it, except that Spike doesn’t like Clint Eastwood.
  • Nights in Rodanthe – The latest Nicholas Sparks novel to be adapted to the big screen. I’ll be avoiding it like the plague, I suggest you do the same.

On Video:

  • Sex and the City – You may have heard of this one.
  • Leatherheads – It was fun, but could’ve been a lot better.
  • Run Fatboy, Run – Simon Pegg is fat, so he signs up for a marathon to win back his ex. I’ll watch just about anything with Pegg in it.
  • Deception – Ewan McGregor does naughty things and gets in trouble. Not interested.
  • Foot Fist Way – It comes highly recommended by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, so you know I’m watching it.
