Friday Flick Picks 9/26/08

Openings in theaters this weekend are rather mediocre. Eagle Eye, Nights in Rodanthe, Choke and The Luck Ones are all getting so-so reviews. So, by request, I'm going to recommend a few movies out in DVD that are worth a look.

On the action side, Batman Begins is well worth a look. The back story of Batman is well told. Leatherheads is a fun look at the inception of professional football. George Clooney and John Krasinski are not too hard to take.

In documentary, the movie Young @ Heart is entertaining and inspiring. Murderball, Mad Hot Ballroom and Shut Up and Sing well worth a look too.

Two of the best chick flicks I've seen lately are In Her Shoes and The Devil Wears Prada. Though both will appeal to the ladies, I know a lot of manly men who enjoyed both of these movies.

Independant films I've enjoyed lately are Son of Rambow, Juno and Lars and the Real Girl.

For the kids I always turn to Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo, Monster House and Ratatouille.

And, as always, my favorite movie, Little Miss Sunshine is always an awesome time.

If you live in the northeast, stay dry, it's going to be a wild, wet weekend. Happy viewing!

Good recommendations and I agree about this weekend's openings as being fairly mediocre - at least on paper.

Backing up a few posts, I thought "Lakeview Terrace" looked like a mess from the previews, but thanks for some validation.
