Machete: Danny Trejo is back and he is still looking for revenge! This is the movie I am most excited about for the month of September. If you have seen Trejo in any movie you know the role he plays and he does it so well. Check it out first thing this weekend (or immediately after watching college football—Go Vols!).
The American: George Clooney plays a spy—and this movie has already lost me. When doesn’t George Clooney play the smooth, misunderstood, maybe good maybe bad guy. And I know I just said you know the role Danny Trejo plays and you love it—-but he is excellent at his roles while Clooney is just so-so. He needs to break out and this is not the role that will help him to do that. Pass and wait for tv.
Going the Distance: Drew Barrymore and Justin Long (the apple guy) are in a long distance relationship (makes the title seem so clever right….no, okay). Things are hard, but funny hard, and I’m willing to be there is a poignant moment where they just don’t think they can go on even though they are so right for each other. Meh, watch it if you have nothing better to do, and with college football starting you have something better to do. Pass until on tv!
