Lazy September

Perhaps it's the calm before the storm of awards season on the steady horizon now with it being in the midst of September, but it's definitely a slow and bleak movie release weekend coming up.


Cleverly released yesterday on 9-9-09 for the weekend, this PG-13-rated animated feature from director Shane Acker has been getting mixed reviews, and while some call it a visual treat, others have been labeling it as a merely slight offering.

I Can Do Bad All By Myself

Yet another standard piece from writer/director Tyler Perry, except maybe this time with Academy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson of "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" in the mix, it could be maybe just marginally better than his usual fare.

Sorority Row

A run-of-the-mill slasher flick that probably won't even get released for critics to review in time for its release. Slutty sorority girls getting offed one by one by a serial killer. The usual.


Starring Kate Beckingsale, this chilly action thriller looks to be forgettable and conventional and has already been getting lackluster reviews from critics.

By the looks of things, it would appear there's no tough competition for anything to be maxing out the box office. Let's just hope this lull is a premonition for some greater films on the way.
