Movies for the Fall/Winter

Originally, I was going to do my “normal list” for Aug/Sept and for Oct/Nov and so on and so forth but before I knew it August had come and gone and then came September and it past by too and now it is October so, I am scrapping that idea. As you can probably tell by the title, my new idea is now upcoming movies for the whole Fall/Winter (this entails Aug 08-March 09). Sorry about that.


Purple = my “MUST See” in theaters. 

Black = looks entertainingto me.

Green = The Guru aka 6mile.

Blue = The Scientist aka Ara.

 Red = updated information.

August *

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

Pineapple Express

Tropic Thunder

September *

Bangkok Dangerous

Burn After Reading

The Women (I saw this one, it was pretty good. It was a bit like a more grown up version of sex and the city… like if they were to do a sequel 10 or so years down the line. I thought it was worth 3 1/2 stars.)


My Best Friend’s Girl

Eagle Eye  (I did manage to get to the theater to see this, it was pretty good. It was a bit like I, Robot and a bit like Enemy of the State but I will give it 4 stars because of the angle/spin it put on the concept/idea.)

Appaloosa – Sept 19 (this has been out a few weeks, but I have yet had time to get to see it)

Nights in Rodanthe Sept 26 (this movie was simply freaking awesome, but definitely a chick flick. If you liked The Notebook, you’ll love this one too!)

* These months have already past .. just in case you did not know/remember this (most of these movies you will still be able find in the theaters).



  1. I saw The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, lacks the excitement of the first part for me. Igor was nice and simple.

    I am probably going to watch Eagle Eye soon

  2. Aw man you got to see Igor I have to wait for it on dvd now it is no longer at my theater. oh well.

  3. wmwb, I just saw the trailer for Watchmen , now i feel like I have to make my own list , haha.

  4. ah watchmen! forgot that one! nice. just add yours to the list silly! add yours in green and we will add that to the key. how about that?

  5. I agree with 6mile.. the new Mummy just wasn’t nearly as good as before, and it didn’t help that they replaced Eide (sp?) with a new lady. Rachel Weisz did an excellent job before and it would have been much better if she’d been in this one as well.
    OOOh I did go see the movie Quarantine.. I will put a post up as soon as I have spare time.. as for now, I’m off to bed.. to see the wonderful wizard of oz… hehe LOL

  6. yea I was a bith miffed about the switch from rachel too.. and ara if you want to add to the list add yours in blue

  7. Okie m’dokie LOL

  8. There were a couple on yours WmWB that I’d like to see as well such as Underworld.. I have Underworld: Revolution on DVD.. my bro got it for me for Christmas.. I love my sci-fi with vampires, dragons, etc.. it is my escape from the world as we know it as normal. I also definitely want to see Twilight, plus a few others. I will post a review of Quarantine in a few days.. it’s right up the Scientist part alley of me hehehe. I don’t know if I mentioned it or not, but I decided to definitely not persue pharmacy school. I made some big decisions over the summer, and I decided that yes, the pay is good, but it’s not worth wasting my life on something I don’t enjoy. I want a family one day.. and I don’t want to waste it being at work all hours of the day and night and weekends, plus, we don’t get to help people in enough ways. So, I decided to persue my masters in genetics/immunology, maybe onto a Ph.D. at some point. I don’t want to just be a stealth nerd .. hehehe…. perhaps you aptly named me on here before I knew it was positively what I wanted as well hehe :o)

  9. I will add to the list soon 🙂 As ara mentioned there will be a few duplicates

  10. Yea I love getting my mind away from the norm..
    Oh I just saw Nights in Rodanthe I bawled and not just at the end. I am a big baby.
    Good for you I say go with your heart and follow what makes you happy do not waste your time (or money) on something that is not going to make you happy. I think you will do well as a scientist hence my name for you! 😉
