Movies of the Moment – November 2007

Sorry for the small lull in posts. Here are the films I am interested in for November.

Feature Film November 2007
Beowulf – November 16
Robert Zemeckis uses the motion capture CGI he used in The Polar Express for a for “grown up” film. I’ve been hearing the criticisms about how the film will be terrible as a “cartoon” and that it should have been live action. Personally, I have been impressed about what I have seen of the film and I am actually hoping to see it in IMAX 3D, which is the format it’s meant to be seen in.

Other Picks for the Month

American Gangster – November 2
This is the first big film of the fall season and I am looking forward to the combination of Denzel Washington, Russell Crowe and director Ridley Scott. I am in fact planning on seeing this later tonight. Look for my thoughts tomorrow.

No Country for Old Men – November 9
This film is probably the Coen Brother’s darkest film since Fargo. I am really looking forward to seeing it.

Southland Tales – November 16
I’ve been looking forward to Richard Kelly’s follow-up to Donnie Darko for years. Despite the rough road this film has been on, I don’t think anything is going to stop me from seeing it.

The Mist – November 21
This is Frank Darabont’s third Stephen King adaptation, though it’s the first time he is adapting one of King’s horror novels (with Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile both leaning more towards drama). I do look forward to seeing the film, even though the plot seems very similar to The Fog.

May Consider

Fred Claus – November 9
I am interested in seeing this Vince Vaughn film about Santa Claus’ brother, I might not see it until closer to Christmas.

Not Really Interested
There is nothing really notable this month that I would like speak about why I’m not seeing it.
