Comedies, Crimes and Melodramatic Times

On this last (unofficial) weekend of summer, moviegoers have the dubious task of choosing between family-friendly tales, conspiracy-minded theories and horrors (not involving holiday traffic). Audiences continue to lament the pros and cons “If I Stay” within the melodrama realm while crime crusaders are invited to partake in the drama occurring in “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” from the sinful city of their choice. Nostalgia lovers, meanwhile, are rediscovering their youth among the family-oriented “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” Pleasing families of all kinds, the “Guardians of the Galaxy” have had out-of-this-world success whereas the fakers shouting “Let’s Be Cops” seem to be reaping the benefits acquired in their make-believe universe. Those searching for inspiration are sure to find their spirits lifted during “When the Game Stands Tall,” hoping those elevated souls will send their box-office totals soaring. “The November Man” is eager to be elevated to a cushy cinematic level this September, uttering “As Above, So Below” (one can only assume this is in reference to his above-it-all status or his affinity for oddly-named horror films).
Thankfully, all of our status-seeking characters came to play (with varying degrees of story success).
What emotionally-charged story do you think will come out on top of the movie game this weekend?
