Top Films for October

FILTH

James McAvoy has been praised for his performance by critics so I want to see it purely for this purpose. The content looks quite disgusting. He is a policeman with no moral boundaries and we literally see him, drink, smoke, shag, puke and just be a down-right horrible human being. It will certainly be a shocking movie but the casting of McAvoy has me intrigued. Released: 4th October

HOW I LIVE NOW

I’m almost fed up of the apocalyptic genre but this looks quite good. The trailer has me hooked, as does Saoirse Ronan, who takes the lead in this movie. She is an American sent to the English countryside for a summer and falls in love with Eddie. The world as they know it is totally changed when it is hit with a nuclear blast and they are separated by soldiers. They strive to break free and reunite back at their home. I like the love story edge. Released: 4th October

THANKS FOR SHARING

This comedy-drama has a stellar cast and looks so enjoyable.  It focuses on the lives of three people who suffer from sex addiction and how it affects those around them. Mark Ruffalo, Gwyneth Paltrow, Josh Gad, Pink and Tim Robbins star. Released: 4th October

THE TO DO LIST

This has a basic storyline but I think the comedic performances will make up for that. Aubrey Plaza stars as Brandy, an over-achiever in high school who realises she should get as many sexual experiences under her belt as possible before heading to college. This obviously paves the way for some funny, awkward scenes. I was mostly sold by the support cast of Alia Sawkat, Bill Hader, Rachel Bilson and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. Released: 4th October

THE FIFTH ESTATE

Despite being panned by WikiLeaks founders, I think this insight into their 2010/2011 operation of releasing classified information will be very interesting. This thriller sees Benedict Cumberbatch portray the founder Julian Assange. We see the CIA and FBIs reaction when their classified information about Iraqi insurgents gets published in media, thanks to this whistleblower. Released: 11th October

CAPTAIN PHILLIPS

This action movie starring Tom Hanks is based on a true story that happened in 2009. Tom is the captain of a freighter which gets taken hostage by Somali pirates. He then lets himself get taken hostage to save his crew. This looks like really tense stuff and relates to contemporary news, which makes it very interesting. Released: 18th October
