Late August is a rough time at the movie theater. It’s not really summer, and it’s not really fall. The blockbuster season is over but the awards season hasn’t really ramped up yet. The same kind of thing happens in early spring. Sometimes surprisingly good movies appear during these bumper times of the year, i.e. “The Matrix” back in 1999, but generally it’s a lot of movies like the ones out right now - “The Expendables 3,” Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” etc., etc.
