Capsule Reviews of September Releases: Did a Bad-Ass Denzel Washington and Boxtrolls Rock the Month?

I've been awful on here. I don't know how many times I can say that. To really condense the struggle, almost a year ago a huge career breakthrough evaporated from my hands and it has left more lingering self-doubt than I had ordered so the leftovers keep haunting me. I really want to start rocking the words on a regular basis on here. One of the things I really want to do is provide more full-length reviews. Since I've once again become backlogged, I decided to provide capsule reviews of the September releases I've seen. So over at Collective Publishing, see how the state of cinema is looking as we head into what many consider the prestige months.

Oh, I actually first provide some thoughts on the current state of 2014. To be honest, it was supposed to be a short introduction paragraph, but I turned out to have more to say than I planned. After the really long lead-in piece, I provide reviews for pictures like The Boxtrolls, The Equalizer, This is Where I Leave You, and more (really check out that more).
