Movies opening in theaters this week are not gut noticing, but they are staffed by notable seasoned actors.
Opening This Week – October 31
Rated R runs 117 min
When Lou Bloom, a driven man desperate for work, muscles into the world of L.A. crime journalism, he blurs the line between observer and participant to become the star of his own story. Aiding him in his effort is Nina, a TV-news veteran.
Stars: Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Bill Paxton, Riz Ahmed
This film seems to be getting decent to strong reviews and could be an interesting flick. Gyllenhaal seems to always bring an interesting facet to his characters and I expect no less from him this time.

A woman wakes up every day, remembering nothing as a result of a traumatic accident in her past. One day, new terrifying truths emerge that force her to question everyone around her.

You would think with a cast like Kidman, Firth and Strong, you would have a solid movie, but early reviews seem luke warm to it.

Saw (2004) – [Re-release]
Rated R runs 103 min
With a dead body lying between them, two men wake up in the secure lair of a serial killer who’s been nicknamed “Jigsaw”. The men must follow various rules and objectives if they wish to survive and win the deadly game set for them.
Director: James Wan
Stars: Cary Elwes, Leigh Whannell, Danny Glover, Ken Leung
There’s nothing like a good classic frightful movie, especially one that started a seemingly popular franchise like Saw. If you haven’t seen this film, it is a worthy Halloween flick to catch in theaters. Or you can just rent it somewhere.
