September releases can go one of two ways: They’re either awesome movies that are released after the summer so they don’t get buried in blockbuster season, or they’re crappy but look better in comparison with a crop of other C- films in the fall.
You be the judge.
For the Scorsese follower: “The Family”
Is it just me, or is the former mobster/rat/witness-protection storyline seriously overdone? Don’t get me wrong, Robert De Niro is a living legend, but I feel like I’ve seen this movie before. It doesn’t look terrible, but it doesn’t look particularly interesting either. Release Date: September 13th.
For the crime solver: “Prisoners”
So thrillers aren’t typically my cup of tea (I scare easily), but “Prisoners” looks promising. The trailer sets the stage enough to give you the basic story but leaves you with a ‘whodunnit?’ feeling that makes you think the obvious suspect isn’t always the right suspect. And the cast? There’s no way Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Terrence Howard, Melissa Leo, Maria Bello, and Viola Davis can disappoint. Release Date: September 20th.
For the humorous: “Don Jon”
Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been a Hollywood star for the majority of his life, but he’s not only the lead in his latest film, “Don Jon;” he wrote and directed it too. If this was any other actor, I probably wouldn’t pay attention to this trailer, but I find something intriguing about Gordon-Levitt playing a juiced-up, wannabe womanizer that’s not afraid to belt out a Marky Mark classic. In recent years, Gordon-Levitt has been in action movies such as “Inception” and “The Dark Knight Rises,” but I still think of him as a lovable dork from “10 Things I Hate About You.” What else is intriguing about this movie? TONY DANZA. Release Date: September 27th
