Well, folks, it's September! The start of Fall? The end of the Q3 for most companies! (all companies? I don't know.. I was just trying to sound smart) In any case, there seems to be a lot of movies coming out this September, and some of them may even be worth watching! Here's a quick breakdown of September 2nd's movie releases.. a teaser if you will, until Mondays pReview Re-viewing! Check it out, and hopefully you will be entertained! ..edu-tained? something like that.
It's the beginning of the month and we have a pretty small release date. Our September 2nd releases: Shark Night 3d, Apollo 18, and Saving Grace B. Jones.
You may have seen the marketing for Shark Night 3d, as it's been plastered across the face of everything like blood in a splatterhouse. It stars quiet a few people, most I've unfortunately never heard of, so I can't tell you much about them. Of note, however, Katharine McPhee, the singer/sometimes actress. But especially of note, Joel David Moore, who makes every movie he's in, instantly watchable. From the trailer, it looks like a bunch of dumb kids go to a lakehouse looking to have a good time. This has always proven to be a top notch plan for fun-seeking young people in films past, but for some strange reason, it doesn't seem to pan out just right. Now I say dumb kids.. but I should clarify, they are actually college kids.. which implies some level of maturity and education (well.. it SHOULD imply that, but we'll have to wait and see). So these.. people.. go on their "ultimate summer vacation" to a lake. A salt water lake, to be exact. So they get attacked by sharks! Duh! For some reason, there aren't any neighbors, there aren't any phones, and they KEEP going back in the water! Luckily, there is plenty of beer, hot girls, and a psychotic, shark wielding maniac. Now, this is one of those "RealD" movies, and was designed specifically to just be a campy horror flick with mindless fun. I'll probably check this out, because I've checked every mindless 3d horror movie since 3d became a thing (including the original 13 Ghosts!), but with these exorbinant prices tagged onto this otherwise unnecessary "3D craze", it may not be for everyone who isn't a die hard "B-movie" fan. If you are, however, check out:
As there are only 3 movies.. here's my reco's:
Shark NIght 3d: Theater for sho'
Apollo 18: Wait for it
Saving Grace B. Jones: Not for me
