Top movie picks for September 2017 releases in Malaysia



Malaysia Release Date: 7 September 2017
Genre: Horror
Director: Andrés Muschietti (Mama)
Cast: Jaeden Lieberher, Bill Skarsgård

The director may not have impressed with his first and only film Mama (2013), but It is one of the very rare horror classics that definitely should be remade. If you grew up in the 90s and developed a fear for clowns because of the 1990 TV adaptation of the novel by Stephen King, you’d find that it does not stand the test of time. I tried rewatching it and I couldn’t even get passed the first 30 minutes. So even if this remake isn’t great, it’d probably still be more watchable than the previous adaptation.



Malaysia Release Date: 7 September 2017
Genre: Heist crime comedy
Director: Steven Soderbergh (Behind the Candelabra, Magic Mike, Traffic, Ocean’s Trilogy)
Cast: Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Daniel Craig, Riley Keough, Katie Holmes, Seth MacFarlane

The trailers don’t really intrigue, especially with the audio problem with it at the cinemas here, but the film currently holds a 93% score on Rotten Tomatoes based on 172 critic reviews. Also, it’s directed by Oscar-winning director, Steven Soderbergh, who did one of my favourite heist movies ever, Ocean’s Eleven (2001), and also its sequels. So I’m not gonna find out more about Logan Lucky, apart that it’s a heist comedy about a group of people robbing a race event, and just prepare to be pleasantly surprised with lots of laughter.



Malaysia Release Date: (moved to November)
Genre: Fantasy anime
Director: Hiromasa Yonebayashi (When Marnie Was There, The Secret World of Arrietty)
Voice Cast: Hana Sugisaki, Ryunosuke Kamiki, Yūki Amami, Fumiyo Kohinata

Directed by a multiple award-winning director who did some of the best Studio Ghibli animated films, Mary and the Witch’s Flower is based on the novel The Little Broomstick by Mary Stewart about a young girl who finds a magical flower that gives her the power to become a witch but only for a night. If you’re a fan of Studio Ghibli’s works, you’d probably already knew that you won’t be disappointed. It’s gonna be entertaining, emotional, magical and artistically beautiful.



Malaysia Release Date: 21 September 2017
Genre: Spy action comedy
Director: Matthew Vaughn (Kingsman: The Secret Service, X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass)
Cast: Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Halle Berry, Elton John, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges

Usually when a main character dies and comes back to life, like Superman or Optimus Prime, I’d be annoyed. But since Kingsman is more of a comedy than a serious espionage film, I’m actually interested to see how and why. Especially with the director returning to direct and co-write this sequel. Hope to have as much of a great time as I had watching the first one (2015). The cast is star-studded AF!



Malaysia Release Date: 21 September 2017
Genre: CG animated martial arts action comedy
Director: Charlie Bean, Paul Fisher, Bob Logan
Voice Cast: Dave Franco, Justin Theroux, Michael Peña, Kumail Nanjiani, Jackie Chan

The Lego Movie (2014) was great. The Lego Batman Movie (2017) was hilarious as well. Can Warner Bros. Pictures score a hat-trick with the franchise? I know nothing about Ninjago apart that they’re Lego’s toy line and this will be the first Lego feature film without any big intellectual properties such as popular superhero characters. The story is about a group of ninjas (each one with a colour like Power Rangers) who protects the city of Ninjago from a threat of led by a warlord whose the father of the Green Ninja, Lloyd. Wait, green ninja/ranger? Sounds slightly familiar.



Malaysia Release Date: 28 September 2017
Genre: Biographical drama
Director: David Gordon Green (Our Brand is Crisis, Joe, Pineapple Express)
Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Tatiana Maslany, Miranda Richardson, Clancy Brown

Based on the true story of Jeff Bauman, this one’s set to be a tear-jerking and yet inspiring drama about a survivor who lost his legs in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing (the recent film Patriot’s Day is about this tragic event as well) as he tries to readapt himself and also attempt to walk again. With Jake Gyllenhaal, whom I still believe should’ve won Best Actor in the Oscars for his performance in Nightcrawler (2014), I think Stronger can be a highly impactful film that puts some things into perspective for viewers.
