Today's New in Theaters- 9/25/09

Surrogates: Remember back in 1995, when suddenly we had all those five-minutes-into-the-future, virtual-reality-will-doom-us-all movies like Virtuosity and Johnny Mneumonic and Strange Days? Surrogates looks like it was supposed to come out that summer too.

Fame: Because everything must be remade. EVERYTHING! DIDN'T YOU GET THE FUCKING MEMO?!? (Ebert's review is right on point.)

Pandorum: Man, wouldn't it be creepy if you were like, in outer space, but there was, like a monster or demon or something, and you couldn't escape, cuz you were like... in space? What, have you heard this one before? (AV Club gives it a D+ and notes, "In space, apparently, no one can hear you steal.")

Capitalism- A Love Story: I'll be part of the choir that Moore is preaching to. Look for my review later in the weekend.

Brief Interviews with Hideous Men: John Krasinski (Jim from The Office) writes and directs this adaptation of David Foster Wallace's novel. I'm expecting that it'll be pretty good, provided it's not a whole movie of people doing bemused reaction takes, straight into the camera.

Coco Before Chanel: I sure do like Audrey Tautou, but this period biopic looks like a snoozer to me. That said, I may not be the target audience.
