September 12

I'm still compiling images and notes for a "Labor Day weekend trip to Troy, Alabama" post, but in the meantime I'm posting about a couple movies due to hit theaters September 12.

First, there's The Women.

Cameron and I are such big fans of the 1939 version of the movie that I've really anticipated this remake. Understanding that doing an update would cause some significant differences from George Cukor's masterpiece because times have definitely changed, I only have high expectations for this one because of the cast.

The genuine article.

Casting, is what caught my eye for the next movie. In addition to this being another Coen Brothers film, it stars Frances McDormand, George Clooney, John Malkovich, and many others whom we've grown to appreciate.

Burn After Reading looks like another gem in the Coen Brothers vault. The trailer definitely drew me in. Read more about the movie here.

So, I expect us to be spending more time than usual in a darkened theater for the next two weeks, because we go Saturday to see Kathy Griffin at the Orpheum. And, while I don't expect the show to be as raucus as The Pink Flight, it'll be a blast for sure.

I'm not a Clooney fan but the trailer for Burn After Reading definitely looks good! The phrase that got my attention was "League of idiots" while Brad was running on the treadmill in the most dorky way humanly possible :)

I know! I thought that was an awesome phrase/scene myself.
