September 2013 Movies


Here are some of the major movies coming out in September:



Release Date: September 27
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Brühl, Olivia Wilde, Alexandra Maria Lara, Stephen Mangan, Christian McKay, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Jamie de Courcey, Pierfrancesco Favino, Natalie Dormer
Director: Ron Howard


Covers the 1970s Formula 1 racing rivalry between a British playboy and an Austrian perfectionist.

My take: It stars Thor and has tons of accents. Of course, I want to see it.

Don Jon


Release Date: September 27
Cast: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore, Tony Danza
Director: Joseph Gordon-Levitt


A guy can’t find anything in life that excites him as much as porn, even when he meets Scarlett Johansson.

My take: I love Joseph Gordon-Levitt so I want to watch anything he’s in.

Insidious: Chapter 2


Release Date: September 13
Cast: Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Lin Shaye, Ty Simpkins, Barbara Hershey
Director: James Wan


It picks up where the last movie left off with the family trying to get over what happened, but they are still connected to the spirit world.

My take: The first one was fairly creepy. This one looks like the same level of creepy and unintentionally funny.

Thanks for Sharing


Release Date: September 20
Cast: Gwyneth Paltrow, Mark Ruffalo, Tim Robbins, Josh Gad, Alecia Moore
Director: Stuart Blumberg


A group of people dealing with serious addiction try to have normal relationships again.

My take: For such a serious topic, it comes across like it wants to be a cute romantic comedy. That doesn’t seem classy.

Metallica Through the Never


Release Date: September 27
Cast: Dane DeHaan , James Hetfield , Lars Ulrich , Kirk Hammett , Robert Trujillo
Director: Nimród Antal


Metallica plays an arena concert while their roadie deals with a riot happening in the streets of the city.

My take: I’m not a Metallica fan, so I have no interest, but if I was, I would be all over this.

Enough Said


Release Date: September 20

Cast: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, James Gandolfini, Caherine Keener, Toni Collette, Ben Falcone
Director: Nicole Holofcener


Julia Louis-Dreyfus plays a masseuse who ends up taking on a new client that just happens to be the ex-wife of the man she started dating.

My take: It looks like a smart romantic comedy and I love the cast.

Baggage Claim


Release Date: September 27
Cast: Paula Patton, Derek Luke, Taye Diggs, Jill Scott, Boris Kodjoe, Trey Songz, Adam Brody, Tia Mowry, LaLa Anthony, Djimon Hounsou
Director: David E. Talbert


A single woman decides to revisit old exes hoping for a date to her younger sister’s wedding in a month.

My take: The plan is to run into all her exes who happen to fly for her airline in a month. Who knew all her exes were such travelers on her airline?

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2


Release Date: September 27
Cast: Bill Hader, Anna Faris, James Caan, Will Forte, Kristen Schaal, Terry Crews, Andy Samberg, Neil Patrick Harris, Benjamin Bratt
Director: Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn


An inventor’s device that turns water into food, starts making food-animal hybrids that threaten mankind.

My take: I never saw the first one, but this looks hilarious.



Release Date: September 20

Cast: Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Maria Bello, Terrance Howard, Viola Davis, Melissa Leo, Paul Dano
Director: Denis Villeneuve


Two young girls go missing. Jake Gyllenhaal is the detective trying to find them. Hugh Jackman is one of the fathers who wants revenge on the main suspect (played by Paul Dano) who they don’t have enough evidence to charge him.

My take: Good cast, but vigilante plots are tiresome to me.

Touchy Feely


Release Date: September 6
Cast: Rosemarie DeWitt, Ellen Page, Allison Janney, Josh Pais, Scoot McNairy, Ron Livingston, Tomo Nakayama
Director: Lynn Shelton


A massage therapist develops an aversion to touching people, which really affects her career choice.

My take: I like the cast, but is too quirky to be taken seriously.

The Family


Release Date: September 13
Cast: Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Tommy Lee Jones, Dianna Agron, John D’Leo
Director: Luc Besson


A mob man-turned-snitch has to keep moving his family around when his cover is blown before they finally think they have found a good place to hide in a quiet French village.

My take: The comedy seems forced and predictable.



Release Date: September 6

Cast: Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Jodi Molla, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Dave Bautista, Bokeem Woodbine, Raoul Trujillo, Nolan Gerard Funk
Director: David Twohy


Vin Diesel plays the guy who can see in the dark and is stuck on a super dark planet fighting weird creatures in the night.

My take: I hated Pitch Black. Not sure why they made The Chronicles of Riddick. This one really looks like it is the same plot as the other movies. Why do they keep making it?
