Movie Round-Up: October 1st, 2010

Case 39: Let Me In The Social NetworkCase 39: (official site)

It’s nice to see Renée Zellweger return to her horror movie roots.  (Her first big role was in Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation.)  However, this movie was made in 2006, released in other countries last year and finally getting its US release now.  The US release was delayed a few times.  All those delays don’t speak of confidence in the film, so I’m worried this is going to suck.  I want to see it, because it does look a little bit interesting, but there is no way I’ll drop $10 to see it.  Netflix for sure.

Let Me In: (official site)

A remake of the film Let The Right One In.  I’ve had the original in my Netflix Instant queue for a while, but I have to really be in the mood for a foreign film.  Seeing as how I don’t speak any foreign language well enough to watch without English subtitles, a foreign film means more effort.  That said, I’ve heard it is incredible, and I really want to see it.  And I will… probably at some point after I’ve seen the remake.  I’m going to try my best to see this in the theater, but don’t know if I’ll make it.

The Social Network: (official site)

Facebook.  A place on the Internet that I both love and hate.  But this movie isn’t really about Facebook as much as it is about the personalities behind its creation, or at least the perception of the personalities from the outside.  But being directed by David Fincher and written by Aaron Sorkin, I can’t possible see how this is going to be anything less than good.  Early reviews are even saying that it’s great.  This movie will probably be the reason I don’t see Let Me In until next weekend.


    1. Sadly, while Box Office Mojo does list it as releasing today, it doesn’t list a number of theaters. I can only find it in 2 in the entire Atlanta area, which likely means a limited release. I tend not to mention limited releases unless I’ve seen them, and I haven’t seen Hatchet II.

      AJ is still the man, though, and I look forward to A Horrible Way to Die next year.

  1. Saw The Social Network and enjoyed it. The movie is diminished a bit knowing that a lot of it is bullshit, but Fincher knows how to direct and Sorkin knows how to write. Worth seeing, just don’t expect to be getting the truth from it.
