Jean TellerWhile I have a few movies on my October to-see list, I kind of doubt I’ll see many in the theaters. Economics and time. Sigh.

September started out with a viewing of The Debt (well acted and produced, but fairly depressing), rentals In the Valley of Elah, I Am Number Four and Beastly (well-acted with Tommy Lee Jones, but depressing; interesting sci-fi premise but the execution just wasn’t there; another interesting premise without the acting/writing to back it up), a new rental of Changeling (again worth seeing but it’s not a feel-good movie, folks) and Easy A (fun, breezy and a good laugh), and a Netflix viewing of The Devil’s Arithmetic (well done, again not a feel-good movie though it ended on an upbeat).

Oh, my, my movie viewing definitely needs to have a few comedies added to the mix.

Moneyball was on the docket for the first weekend of October. Well acted, an interesting storyline (based on true events), but I found it too slow to really be good. It was entertaining, I just wish the editing had been tighter – shaving off five or 10 minutes might have been a good idea.

On to October!

 Real Steel stars Hugh Jackman and Evangeline Lilly.

I'm afraid it's a sign that I'm "getting older" because I am just as interested in current movies as I once was. But I do have "Anonymous" on my list and want to see that intriguing movie. "We Bought a Zoo" sounds interesting, and I hadn't heard of that. I want to see what happens when the family moves to the country!

Jean, I'm with you. The only movie that interests me is "Real Steel". The rest I can wait for the $1 redbox. October seems to be a bad month for movies. I really not a fan of bloody and scary. I thought maybe moneyball would another one to see but you have convinced me to wait for the redbox special. It's a great month for TV series though. Haven is back as well as Warehouse 13, Eureka, and Alphas. They keep me busy enough when I'm not outside working in the yard. Let me know what you think of "Real Steel".
