Weekend at the movies

You know fall is finally arriving when the cineplex begins featuring true choices, instead of the usual summer fare of testosterone, witlessness and bombast ...

This weekend, there are several pics worth checking out -- including one I highly recommend: Ghost Town, the romantic comedy with Ricky Gervais, Tea Leoni and Greg Kinnear. It's funny and sweet and surprisingly touching.  For you gals, there's the chick flick Nights in Rodanthe, which though based on a novel by treacle-prone Nicholas Sparks, does feature that great duo of Diane Lane and Richard Gere.  If you're in the mood for an adrenaline-filled experience that doesn't require any brain cells, buy a ticket for Eagle Eye, the nonstop thriller starring Shia LeBeouf and Michelle Monaghan. And, finally, black activist/filmmaker Spike Lee checks in with his WW II saga Miracle at St. Anna, about a band of black soldiers trapped behind enemy lines.

Hey Outrider, thanks for the feedback!
I had seen "Ghost Town" last week, so that's where my recommendation came from. I haven't seen any of the other films. Yet.
