This last part of the year looks to be a pretty strange one when it comes to movies. Packed with both Oscar contenders, wannabes, and the occasional big budget superhero movie. November seems to be the real month where every type of movie comes out to play. Looks like fall will just be a temporary lull before the new winter movie season happens! Seriously if theaters started being places where you could go to beat the cold, sold hot chocolate, and had winter themed candy I wouldn't mind making winter the new summer.
October Movie Preview
Oct. 4th: While I'm still unsure if this movie is worth all its hype it still looks to be the big release for this week. The visuals alone may be enough astound audiences and make this a winner, the real question is will we be talking about this movie come award season?
|2. Runner Runner|
Oct. 4th: Another seemingly lackluster release but packed with some good actors so who knows. Despite seeing a few trailers I'm not entirely sure what this movie turns out to be. The plot seems secondary to showing Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck talking about living life as a thief or gangster. And then of course it all goes wrong.
|3. Machete Kills|
Oct 11th: Another Machete film is out. I haven't seen a single one and know they aren't really for me. I enjoy the hyper violence but something about the style of it all tells me I won't enjoy it like others do.
|4. Captain Phillips|
Oct 11th: As hyped as Gravity is nothing beats Captain Phillips for the most hyped up film of October. A clear grab for Oscar hype this film seems to be incredibly boring from my perspective. If you pay any attention to the news you already know how this all works out and the only interesting part isn't until the end. I hope the film can overcome what I think to be an already lackluster story.
|5. Escape Plan|
Oct 18th: And then a random action movie because why not? Stallone and Schwarzenegger team up to escape from a future prison in this premise stolen straight out of the 80s. I want to believe these two can still make me go to the movies and this one seems to be the perfect pitch of dumb entertainment and explosions.
|6. Enough Said|
Oct. 18th: James Gandolfini's final movie, one he filmed before his death earlier this year. This one is about a divorced woman trying to date what turns out to be her new friend's ex-husband. This one may not win any awards and seems geared more towards an older audience.
