Today is September 1st, a date that marks the start of the fall movie season (at least in my mind). I have posted half of my fall movie preview and I have also asked my readers to answer the poll for their most anticipated movie in that month. I just decided that the movie that wins this poll wins a “Shameless Advertisement” on the first day of the month. NOTE: If I don’t want to see the movie, I have no qualms in calling it a “shameful advertisement.”
In September, 6 readers took the poll. I have a positive statistic to report for once. 86% of readers who looked at the post took the poll. Thanks, readers for giving me hope that you do listen, and that I’m not just a lost lumberjack crying the wilderness when I ask you to share your opinions!
No movie won a clear majority of the votes, and I have decided my tiebreaker to be the movie that I want to see the most. But, in the interest of fairness, I will post a link to the trailers for the other two “winners”: “Jennifer’s Body” and “Fame.”
The movie that has earned a shameless advertisement on “Marshall and the Movies” for September 2009 is …
“Extract.” I wrote of the movie in my September preview post:
The movie that I’m most excited for opening this week is “Extract,” the latest comedy from Mike Judge, creator of “Office Space” and TV’s “King of the Hill.” The movie stars Jason Bateman, who has been in nearly every comedy and yet I still have not tired of him, as the owner of an extract factory who is a bit down on his luck. Also featuring a great supporting cast which includes J.K. Simmons (”Spider-Man,” “Juno”), Mila Kunis (TV’s “That ’70s Show”), Kristen Wiig (”SNL”), and Ben Affleck, the movie looks to be truly hilarious entertainment.
“Extract” opens in wide release September 4th. You know my opinion, and apparently several (OK, 2) other readers think so too.
