New in Theaters – 10/7/11

Real Steel

A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech, Real Steel stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback. — (C) Dreamworks

Scott’s Take

Real Steel looks like a cliché ridden Rocky film with robots.  That being said, it looks like a movie that kids will go APE SHIT over.  Parents, be prepared to see some robot on robot action this weekend.

Steve’s Take

Cliche is right. I want no part of this movie.

The Ides of March

The Ides of March takes place during the frantic last days before a heavily contested Ohio presidential primary, when an up-and-coming campaign press secretary (Ryan Gosling) finds himself involved in a political scandal that threatens to upend his candidate’s shot at the presidency. — (C) Sony Pictures

Scott’s Take

The Ides of March looks like a solid entry into the never-ending political conspiracy genre.  I am getting to the point where I add Ryan Gosling into the Matt Damon/Leonardo DiCaprio pantheon of must watch actors.  His choice of roles always fascinates me.  Oh yeah, some dude named George Clooney is in this one as well.  I’m in!

Steve’s Take

I have never been a big fan of Ryan Gosling and he will not be the reason I see this movie. I love conspiracy movies and a political one (no matter the subject) fits right in with what we all love in the United States.

In Closing

Finally, a slower release schedule so you can all catch up on solid films like Moneyball and 50/50.  Next week we two 80’s remakes in The Thing and Footloose.  Didn’t I tell you Hollywood is running out of ideas?  Have a great weekend!

    Come on guys, don’t hate on robots beating each other. Go in with an open mind.

    With that said I’m still gonna wait for it on blu-ray. Used of March looks intriguing.

      It’s a bit of a stretch. My money is on Ides of March. Steve.
