Jean TellerAs infrequently as I’m heading to the movie theater these days, I’m not sure I’m the best person to write about movies. Guess I won’t let that stop me though. LOL.

My September was fairly movie free. Sigh. I rented Amelia – I find the Earhart story disturbing, albeit fascinating, in any presentation, but it was an interesting character study and offered a few tidbits I didn’t know. I have The Blind Side waiting. I also saw Eat Pray Love in the theater – great scenery, good acting by all the principals, and a delicate love story. I enjoyed it. And that, my friends, is the extent of my September movie watching.

Now if you want to talk television, I’m way behind on watching premieres of new shows and returning favorites. But I’m hoping to catch up this weekend. I’m also planning on cutting out some series, just because I’m watching waaaaaay too much TV.

So for movies in October, we have quite a few choices. And at least three I plan to see in the theaters; please don’t hold me to that.

Case 39 stars Renee Zellweger and Ian McShane. 

Case 39: Starring Renee Zellweger, this horror tale opens a scary October. I guess it’s only natural, but there are a number of horror movies this month, just in time to scare us all for Halloween. I’m not a fan of the genre, so I’ll skip these. If you are, here are a few others to look for: Let Me In, Hatchet II, Chain Letter, My Soul to Take, I Spit on Your Grave, Paranormal Activity 2, and Saw 3D: The Final Chapter. Case 39, rated R, also stars Ian McShane, Bradley Cooper and Callum Keith Rennie, and it opens October 1.

Hi, Dave! After a quick glance at upcoming films for November and December, I'm inclined to say this year's spate of year-end offerings is going to change our minds. I'm spotting quite a few I'd like to see in the theater, including the latest Harry Potter, Morning Glory, TRON: Legacy and Black Swan, to name a few. I might have to eat my words about this being a bad year for movies. :) Yes, Stargate Universe started off great! And Sanctuary returns next week! And we have the finale of Haven this week. Can you believe two new series have already been canceled!? Crazy! Thanks for stopping by!

@Jean, for me from October until the end of the year movies are usually a drag. I’m with you on the horror genre. When I was a kid, horror used to be the destruction of Tokyo by some giant monster every Saturday night but today horror is just too graphic for me. I would like to see the Facebook movie even though it’s a little lacking in accuracy. I definitely want to see Secretariat. I can plainly remember when Secretariat was racing and winning. He was a horse with personality. The fall TV shows are starting to crank up and I too can’t keep up with them all. Thank goodness for Hulu. It gives me a chance to watch the shows on my terms. Stargate Universe has a great start don’t you think? Keep up the good reviews. Have a great movie day.
