artisanal film reviews | by maryann johanson

question of the day: What movie are you most looking forward to in September?

As of this writing, 15 movies will open wide in North America in the month of September. Which means that even if you’re an active moviegoer and see a movie each week, you’ve still gotta pick and choose (and it’s even worse if you’re in a city on the arthouse circuit, but let’s not make this too complicated).

After a jump, a list of those 15 movies to whet your appetite, or not, as the case may be:
September 4
All About Steve (trailer) (opens in the U.K. on January 15, 2010)

Extract (no U.K. release date has been announced)

Gamer (trailer) (opens in the U.K. on the same day)

September 9-11
9 (trailer) (opens in the U.K. on October 30)

Sorority Row (opens in the U.K. on September 9)

Tyler Perry’s I Can Do Bad All by Myself (no U.K. release date has been announced)

Whiteout (trailer) (opens in the U.K. on the same day)

September 18
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (opens in the U.K. on the same day)

The Informant! (trailer) (opens in the U.K. on November 20)

Jennifer’s Body (trailer) (opens in the U.K. on October 9)

Love Happens (opens in the U.K. on October 9)

September 25
Fame (opens in the U.K. on the same day)

Pandorum (opens in the U.K. on September 18)

Pool Boys (no U.K. release date has been announced)

Surrogates (opens in the U.K. on on the same day)

Which of these movies are you most looking forward to in September?

    I’ve been eager to see 9 (not to be confused with the upcoming musical Nine) since I saw the original animated short at a film festival a few years ago.

    Speaking of musicals: They’ve remade Fame in a PG version, huh? I’d ask why, but it’s fairly obvious.

  • Left_Wing_Fox

    Roughly in order:
    9
    9
    9
    9

    9
    9
    Gamer
    Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs

    9
    Surrogates

    That’s about all that excites me.

  • PJK

    Since I’m not in the USA or the UK, I’ve checked the list of movies to be released in my favorite cinema during the month of September and have come to the following selection:

    9
    The Hurt Locker
    District 9

    That seems to be it. Maybe Gamer.

  • bracyman

    I’m wondering if I can compress Gamer, Surrogates and Avatar into one movie. Are these movies reflections of a fear that someone is controlling our lives through the internet?

    I think that I want to see Whiteout because I hope it will be like The Thing. With gratuitous shower scene.

    @PJK – Definitely catch The hurt Locker. That movie should have had more fanfare.

  • LaSargenta

    None of the above.

    I’m kind of intrigued by Disgrace, Amreeka and Burning Plain. But, I’m not exactly planning to definately see them. I still haven’t had time to see Taking Woodstock!

  • Pollas

    Love Happens. Anything with Aaron Eckhart, I’m there.

  • Kevin

    The Informant! is the only must-see, as far as I’m concerned.

    I might also check out Jennifer’s Body and Surrogates, if time allows…

  • tomservo

    We got the three best movies of the year, The Hurt Locker, District 9, and Inglourious Basterds, pretty much back to back so I’m not expecting much this month. 9 looks intriguing, but might wait for DVD.

  • tomservo

    BTW, where’s The Hurt Locker review, MJ?

  • sm

    Love Happens – for Aaron Eckhart.

    Surrogates – need my sci-fi fix.

    Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs – classic of my childhood.
