    Spout's Fall Movie Preview - Part 2

    Here is the second half of our Fall Movie Preview, highlighting the season's most anticipated studio offerings as well as a number of indie titles expected to receive successful wide releases in the months of November and December. The first section, which looked at films opening in September and October, was a little easier to pilfer through, whereas the closer we get to the new year the more crowded the calendar is and will be with Oscar hopefuls. The big holidays also typically feature a surge of big budget family entertainment like the new installments of the "Harry Potter" and "Chronicles of Narnia" franchises and broad comedies like "Little Fockers" and "Gulliver's Travels," which were a little easier to exclude without regret.

    Spout's Fall Movie Preview - Part 1

    The crop of summer movies this year were more lackluster than blockbuster. But September is upon us and with it comes the fall film season, a time for Oscar bait and festival favorites and -- at least in 2010 -- more exciting sequels, remakes (such as "Let Me In," pictured above) and 3D, sci-fi and fantasy films than those of the prior frame. It almost makes sense that "Machete," the most satisfying kind of action fluff, which in many ways is also the smartest blockbuster of the year so far (not that it's been hard), arrived in the transitional weekend of Labor Day. It closes out one season with a bang (and a lot of stabbing and slicing) and opens another with a semblance of grown-up debate.

    Toronto Fest: 9 to Watch (and more)

    For the Wall Street Journal Online (and hence, targeted more to mainstream consumers), here is my Toronto Film Festival Nine Films to Watch, which includes usual suspects such as "Black Swan" and "127 Hours," but I've also thrown in Errol Morris' doc "Tabloid" (I'm a fan) and the new "Brighton Rock" update, starring Sam Riley (I'm a fan of both the actor, and of course, author Graham Greene, who wrote the 1938 book on which the film is based). I could also have equally noted John Cameron Mitchel's "Rabbit Hole" (I did namecheck Nicole Kidman with that film in mind).
