Red White & Blue

Diagnosis: Film – Weekend of Oct. 8

Got a horse movie we’ve never seen before and some horror that I’m always down for seeing. There’s also a Carey Elwes beat-em-up worth noting and a lot of documentaries you might be into but that fail to grab me in the slightest. And MILLA! There’s a frickin’ Milla movie this week that’s coming out. DEFINITELY want to see that one. Anyway, check out the trailers and enjoy.

Director: Randall Wallace
Written By: Mike Rich
Starring: Diane Lane, John Malkovich, Dylan Walsh, Scott Glenn
Release Date: Oct 8, 2010
Another story about horse races and outrageous odds. *yawn*
Diagnosis: Pass.
Life as We Know It
Director: Greg Berlanti
Written By: Ian Deitchman, Kristin Rusk Robinson
Starring: Katherine Heigl, Josh Duhamel, Jean Smart, Josh Lucas
Release Date: Oct 8, 2010
Is it just me being weird or does this remind anyone else of Three Men And A Baby? Two unlikely adults raise a child left to them. Not entirely sure I’m sold on the movie from the trailer, but I would be lying if I said the premise didn’t interest me some.
Diagnosis: If I have time.
My Soul to Take
Director: Wes Craven
Written By: Wes Craven
Starring: Max Thieriot, John Magaro, Emily Meade, Nick Lashaway
Release Date: Oct 8, 2010
Wes Craven. October. Horror. Of course I’m going to see this.
Diagnosis: Want to see.
Nowhere Boy
Director: Sam Taylor Wood
Written By: Matt Greenhalgh
Starring: Aaron Johnson, Kristin Scott Thomas, Thomas Sangster, David Morrissey
Release Date: Oct 8, 2010
Not a Beatles fan, but I am kind of interested in this movie based off the trailer. And it stars Kick-Ass, so I’m curious to see how he moves on from that film.
Diagnosis: If I have the time.
It’s Kind of a Funny Story
Director: Ryan Fleck, Anna Boden
Written By: Anna Boden, Ryan Fleck
Starring: Keir Gilchrist, Zach Galifianakis, Emma Roberts, Viola Davis
Release Date: Oct 8, 2010 (Limited)
Zach Galifianakis has gotten quite a bit of film saturation lately, so I’m not entirely sure I’m interested in seeing him play another variation on his usual shtick. This could just be the fault of an uninteresting trailer.
Diagnosis: Not interested.
Director: John Curran
Written By: Angus MacLachlan
Starring: Robert De Niro, Edward Norton, Milla Jovovich, Frances Conroy
Release Date: Oct 8, 2010
Milla Jovovich.
Diagnosis: Must see.
It’s a Wonderful Afterlife
Director: Gurinder Chadha
Written By: Paul Mayeda Berges, Gurinder Chadha
Starring: Sanjeev Bhaskar, Steve Morphew, Jamie Sives, Sendhil Ramamurthy
Release Date: Oct 8, 2010 (Limited)
It’s Mohinder Suresh from Heroes…and a plot I don’t much care about…like Heroes.
Diagnosis: Pass.
Tamara Drewe
Director: Stephen Frears
Written By: Moira Buffini, Posy Simmonds
Starring: Gemma Arterton, Roger Allam, Dominic Cooper, Luke Evans
Release Date: Oct 8, 2010 (Limited)
At first I thought it was a film about writers, and then I thought it was a film about Tamara Drewe, but then I realized it was a film about a potty-mouthed little girl causing trouble for everyone. Turns out, it wasn’t about that either.
Diagnosis: Saw it so you don’t have to.
I Spit On Your Grave
Director: Steven R. Monroe
Written By: Jeffrey Reddick, Meir Zarchi
Starring: Rodney Eastman, Chad Lindberg, Andrew Howard, Daniel Franzese

Never saw the original. Might look into seeing that first.
Diagnosis: If I have time.
Inside Job
Director: Charles Ferguson
Written By:

Release Date: Oct 8, 2010 (Limited)
Not the kind of documentary that grabs me.
Diagnosis: Pass.

Director: Klaus Härö
Written By: Klaus Härö

Didn’t quite understand the trailer, but the premise sounds interesting.

As Good as Dead
Director: Jonathan Mossek
Written By: Erez Mossek, Eve Pomerance

Welcome to the beat the shit out of Cary Elwes movie. Although, the trailer does kind of pique my interest.
Diagnosis: Piqued interest.
