Movies NOT To See: September 2017 Edition

A compiled list to help you weed out the good vs the bad to save your time, money and brain cells. A link to the trailer has been provided in the title. 

Goon: Last of the Enforcers (Sept 1) 

As you know I’m not much of a sports movie guy, but I suppose everyone has a bit of a soft spot for Stifler.

Home Again (Sept 8) 

Reese Witherspoon’s break out role into mom-com.  That grown up stage where you become pigeon holed into adult comedies playing the dysfunctional and relatable mom.

Anti Matter (Sept 8) 

While the poster may have attempted to look cool, a sci-fi film that wins lots of film festival awards lacks the spark that many of us look for in sci-fi.  No cool visuals, just cold thought provoking artistic triumph.  Nah!

 Fallen (Sept 8)

As much as I love cheesy tween stories, this looks like it is based on an exceptionally cheesy tween novel inspired by Twilight.  I would; however, watch this for fun and likely enjoy bits of it, though nothing profoundly moving.

Year By The Sea (Sept 8)

A Year By The Sea may feel more like a year in the theatre in this mature life after divorce tale.

Woodshock (Sept 15)

Kirsten Dunst stars in this drug induced coma that tries to make art out of pain and suffering.  Snooze.

Brad’s Status (Sept 15)

Ben Stiller starring in his old man comedy about how his school chums are all successful men and he has nothing, but then he realizes he has his family and his smart kid so he doesn’t what he can to support his son, and you know…. live through him.

The Lego Ninjago Movie (Sept 22)

I may be a teenage girl at heart, but I’m not a teenage boy.  Nope.

Battle of the Sexes (Sept 22)

Based on the true story of Billie Jean King the #1 female tennis player and ex-champ Bobby Riggs in the 70’s where being a male pig was celebrated.  I like Emma Stone but I know I wouldn’t care for this movie.

Stronger (Sept 22)

Inspirational true story about Jeff Batman who was injured and lost his legs during the 2013 Boston marathon bombing.  While I imagine it is a good and inspiring movie I don’t like to purposely watch sad things just to become emotional.  Too many people thrive off of sad things just so they can cry over someone else’s story to get their own attention.

Friend Request (Sept 22)

People these days put far too much emphasis on friends/unfriending and statuses and relationships on social media it is only fitting that we have a horror movie of a girl haunting people through Facebook.

American Made (Sept 29)

Tom Cruise stars in this suspense drama about Barry Seal, a pilot recruited by the CIA.  Not really doing anything for me.
