September continues this summer’s string of months with lots of great movies to go and see. The one that I’m most excited to see is Dredd starring Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby. I remember watching the first movie adaptation years ago with Sylvester Stallone and it really wasn’t all that good, but this one looks absolutely amazing. I hear that Karl Urban never takes off the helmet in this movie which is a big sticking point for a lot of fans and the old film. It looks gritty, action-packed, and insane. I can’t wait.
As for other movies in September that I want to try and go see in the theater, there is Resident Evil: Retribution, Solomon Kane, and the next Joseph Gordon-Leavitt film, Looper. I want to see the Resident Evil movie simply because they are a guilty pleasure of mine. Solomon Kane stars the actor that played the lead in Ironclad, James Purefoy and I think it will be a pretty cool one concept-wise, but I’m not sure if it will actually be available in a theater near me.
