Fall Movies -- Yipee!

I get so excited about Fall Movies. So when I heard a list of movies on the CBS Morning Show, I thought I would write them down, for me, but then I realized that others may like this list. I will check off the movies as I see them. Of course, they won't all come to my small city, so some I won't get to watch until the DVD release. And some are just too plain stupid to watch (High School Musical, for example.) BOLDED films below are ones I especially want to see.

Body of Lies, Leonardo DiCaprio and Russel Crowe
Burn after Reading, Coen Brothers Brad Pitt John Malkevish
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Brad Pitt gets younger
Changeling, Angelino Jolie
Revolutionary Road, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet
Righteous Kill, Al Pacino and Robert De Nero
Doubt, Meryl Streep and Phillip Seymour Hoffman, based on the Tony winning play about clergy sexual abuse
The Duchess, Kiera Knightley and Ralph Fiennes

Happy Go Luck, a Mike Leigh film with Sally Hawkins
Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist,Michael Cera and Kat Dennings
Ghost Town, Ricky Gervais and Greg Kinnear

Political Movies
W. Oliver Stone about George W. Bush with Josh Brolin
Frost/Nixon, about the Frost interview of Nixon
Milk, Sean Penn, stars as gay politician Harvey Milk who was murdered

Cheese Potential
High School Musical 3, Senior Year
Nights in Rodanthi, Nicholas Sparks movie with Richard Gere and Diane Lane

WWII Movies
Definance, Daniel Craig
Miracle at St. Anna, Spike Lee
Australia, Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman

Film Festival Movies

The Soloist, Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey Jr.

Vicky Christinia Barcelona, I added this Woody Allen film to list because I want to see it!

I'm so excited about this list! You should also add Blindness, directed by Fernando Meirelles (a festival move coming out the end of this month) and The Road directed by John Hillcoat (based on the Pulitzer Prize winning book by Cormac McCarthy) coming out November 26th!

Thanks for the ideas. I am always up for hearing new movie ideas. I read a lot of reviews and search for that rare gem -- so any ideas are appreciated.

I'm on the fence about Revolutionary Road. While I love Kate and Leo (and Titanic), I'm worried this movie is going to be way too depressing to be enjoyable.

I will have to read a few reviews of Revolutionary Road before I decide to go to it.

Tim and I saw Appaloosa with Viggo Mortenson and Ed Harris; this was not a typical bang bang shoot em up western (althogh there is some of that) it is a rather poignant story about two rather over the hill law men adjusting to a world that is changing.
