9/24 Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole . PG (3D and 2D)

What Caught My Eye – Shia LaBeouf, Micheal Douglas, Charlie Sheen. The sequel to Wall Street – an 80’s classic. Gordon Gekko is back and none to soon. Quote by Gekko from Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps – “Someone reminded me I once said ‘Greed is good’. Now it seems it’s legal. Because everyone is drinking the same Kool Aid”
Trailer – http://www.wallstreetmoneyneversleeps.com (very well chosen music plays during the trailer –Rolling Stones’ Sympathy for the Devil.)
What Caught My Eye –Mike Rich (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike and http://www.imdb.com/Mike Rich/ ) is the writer for this film. Mike Rich also wrote Finding Forrestor, The Rookie and The Nativity. I think that John Malkovich and Diane Lane will be be enjoyable in this movie. Check out the trailer and see if your heart is not stirred a little.
