And we’re back. I hope everyone enjoyed their summer holidays – Cinemateket, Huset’s Biograf, Verdenskulturcentret and pretty much anyone putting out anything other than summertime blockbuster garbage certainly did.

The summer probably peaked with X-Men or Planet of the Apes – both of which were actually pretty entertaining – but now it’s time for some more serious movies.

The best summertime weather in 2,369 years (fact check?) has come to an end, and the old familiar grey drizzle and seasonal affective disorder are coming back.

But on the bright side, now you can start spending those SAD days inside watching interesting movies that require a bit of original thought.

This week there’s yet another big budget Hollywood hit, thanks to the enigmatic Nic Cage. By the way, if you also find the guy to be a total joke, then check out niccageaseveryone.com – breathtaking.

But the next few weeks should start the autumn off on the right note.

First off we’ve got Daniel Radcliffe in What If – just kidding, yikes.

Who cares if it got a solid review in the Guardian, we all know the truth about Radcliffe: he’s been sentenced to life as a nerdy, pubescent wizard with a lame scar on his forehead.

On a more serious note, there’s Sin City: a Dame to Kill For – not bad. The first one was cool when I was a hormonal 13-year-old, so there’s that.

But the real prize coming out in early September is Richard Linklater’s Boyhood.

The experimental director of  gems like Dazed and Confused and Before Sunrise spent three days filming each year for 12 years with the same cast to create this epic film, which has received rave reviews so far and scored a respectable 100 on Metacritic (has that ever happened?).

Sure, it’s just under three hours long, but do you really have anything better to do now that the summer is over?

I didn’t think so.
