September movie semi-round-up

So many brand new movies to see!

In Flight Plan, asexual parent Jodie Foster loses her luggage on an airline flight. She spends the rest of the movie adamant about reclaiming her lost luggage even though nobody else believes she brought any in the first place. Did I say luggage? I meant daughter. I can’t say I look forward to seeing this one, after already seeing this same thing in The Forgotten (2004) and Hitchcock’s The Lady Vanishes (1938). Wait, it’s on an airplane you say? Well that’s totally different.

Also, from the writer of Emma and Sense & Sensibility and the producers of Bridget Jones’s Diary and Love Actually, comes a movie just like Emma, Sense & Sensibility, Bridget Jones’s Diary and Love Actually: Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice.

So what’s new with America’s sweetheart Emily Rose? This September something-or-other, she’s getting some exercise in The Exorcism of Emily Rose! It’s a story about a psychotic little girl whose demons cannot be cured by medical science and must be treated by a higher power. It chills the viewer with eerie sounds and images, leaping beds and a waif with a voice like an angry linebacker. Also, Emily Rose will be played by Linda Blair and the movie will be released in 1973 under the name The Exorcist.

Serenity, based on the low-rated sci-fi series “Firefly”, is about some people in a spaceship. Not terribly innovative yet, but wait’ll you find out what they’re carrying! The cargo is a Joss Whedon fantasy: a combat-capable super-chick. The real question of the movie though is which combat-capable super-chick??? Is it a squeaky blonde named Buffy who slays vampires? No wait, maybe her name is Lara and she raids tombs, guns a-blazin’! Or is it Dark Angel Jessica Alba come to kick future space butt? Or could it be Jennifer Garner from “Alias”?

Maybe it’s Jodie Foster’s missing daughter.
