Preview - Fall Movies
School is back and summer is over, which means your spare time is limited. If you're gonna go see a flick - it better be good. Otherwise you might as well save the cash and just do your homework. Check out what is coming to a theater near you this fall, and decide for yourself what's worthy.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Opens: November 16, 2001.
If you sneaked a peek at the trailer to this flick, chances are you got goose bumps. It seems like director Chris Columbus is doing a pretty good job of bringing Hogswart and all its enchanting and haunting characters to life. Newbie Daniel Radcliffe is a dead ringer for the Harry JK created and most of the other characters seem to be equally as well cast. Hold onto your seats and watch out for lightning bolts - this is gonna be fall's biggest flick.
Monster, Inc.Opens: November 2, 2001.
If you're scared of monsters in your closets at night, think about it this way - they're only doing their job. That is the concept behind Monsters, Inc. The computer animated movie is about Mike and Sullivan, two monsters whose job it is to capture the energy from the screams of scared kidz. Lately though, kidz aren't scared as easily and Mike and Sullivan are having a hard time making a living. To make matters worse, some nosey little girl follows them back to the The Scare Factory in Monstropolis. Yeah, this one is gonna be good - and voices from Billy Crystal and John Goodman don't hurt it either.
On The LineOpens: October 19, 2001.
This romantic comedy has two major things going for it - The Y and N of *NSYNC. Lance Bass, of KWLINK 1088>*NSYNC stars as Kevin, a guy who falls for a girl he sees on a train. Kev is too lame to get her digits and spends most of the movie running around Chicago looking for her. One of his buddies that helps him find Miss Right is played by Joey Fatone. This movie has a lot going for it other than *NSYNC. It's got a good soundtrack - featuring peeps like Meredith Edwards - and the story itself is cute and quirky without being sappy and lame. Lance told Entertainment Weekly that there was one big difference between him and his character Kevin. "If it were me, I would have gotten her number."
