Theater Releases for October 19th

Its goddamn busy day in work and I barely have time for this.
I don’t feel like doing it once I get home so while my lunch break is approaching, I decided to dedicate some time to the ol’ Nerdlog. Enjoy.

30 Days Of Night
The vamps come out at night, the vamps come out at niiiiiiight.

30 Days of Night – In a small Alaskan town, the sun doesn’t show for 30 days. A group of vampires find out about this and attack all villagers they find in an orgy of bloodspill. Now the sheriff (Josh Hartnett) must do something to help the remaining survivors.

The Comebacks
WHAMMY!!!!

The Comebacks – another spoof movie but this time taking on inspirational sports movies. David Koechner (Champ from Anchorman) stars as the coach of a bunch of misfit football players. Look for spoofs of Radio, Rocky, Talladega Nights, Dodgeball and more.

Gone Baby Gone
Fleck Baby Fleck

Gone Baby Gone – from the author of Mystic River and the directorial debut of Ben Affleck comes the story of an investigation into the disappearance of a young girl. Two private detectives (Casey Affleck and Michelle Monaghan) are hired to take a look at the case and find out there is some deception and corruption going on.

Rendition
Uhhhh… *stupid caption here*

Rendition – a man is kidnapped by a secret group of the US Government on suspicions that he may be a terrorist. Reese Witherspoon is the wife who tries to find out what happened to her husband. Jake Gyllenhall is the analyst sent to observe the interrogation methods of this secret group. Also starring Alan Arkin, Meryl Streep, and Peter Sarsgaard.

Things We Lost in the Fire
“There, there. Rest on my large bosom.”

Things We Lost In The Fire – Halle Berry loses her husband in a random act of violence and the husband’s best friend (Benicio del Toro) moves in to help her with the daily activities of life. He is a heroin user and is helping them overcome a loss while overcoming his own problems.

I’m not usually a fan of vampire movies but I think 30 Days Of Night looks like a pretty cool spin on the genre. Its not getting the greatest reviews though so I’ll probably download it or wait for DVD. I still think it looks better than most vampire stuff that has come out lately.
My choice for this week is Gone Baby Gone. It is getting praised by critics and looks to have a pretty interesting story that can keep you going for the length of the movie. I’d like to see what the Fleck does in his first shot at the director’s chair. Maybe he’ll give up acting and stick to directing if this is a big movie for him.
