From Sunday's New York Daily News: "'Hope springs eternal,' the poet Alexander Pope wrote in 1733. If he were around today, he'd know that hope actually springs in the fall (he'd also have a three-picture deal). And all the signs are here that it's that time of year: It's the beginning of college football season (go UCLA!), the baseball playoffs are ahead (Subway Series, anyone?), and Hollywood is releasing its A-list films. That sound you're hearing is Oscar buzz." Jack Mathews waxes hopeful about the fall movie season, then joins forces with Elizabeth Weitzman to offer a detailed rundown of major titles coming soon to a theater or drive-in near you.
