Top Films for October

oct1

It’s that time of the year again – a new month, a new round of films to check out and October has some AMAZING movies that I cannot wait for. Here’s a round-down of my must-see movies for this month…

Crimson Peak

I have been waiting for Guillermo del Toro’s gothic horror for months and months. Mia Wasikowska plays a young author who marries Tom Hiddleston and moves to his creepy home, which also houses his sister (Jessica Chastain). The house is filled with ghosts and mysterious secrets, and she soon discovers who her husband really is. Released: 16th October

Suffragette

The Suffragette movement is such an important part of British civil rights history that I cannot believe it has never been covered in film until now. Carey Mulligan plays the fictional Maude, who is fed up of the inequality facing women in her laundry factory so she signs up to campaign for the right to vote with the Suffragettes, lead by Emmeline Pankhurst (Meryl Streep). It is hard to watch but I really felt like I learned something. Review coming soon. Released: 12th October.

Spectre

This is a no-brainer. Skyfall was my favourite James Bond ever (with GoldenEye a close second) so I cannot wait to see how Sam Mendes follows it. Daniel Craig returns as 007, who receives a cryptic message from his past, so he embarks on a mission to uncover a sinister organisation known as SPECTRE. Also starring Lea Seydoux, Christoph Waltz, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris and Monica Bellucci. Released: 26th October

The Intern

This is a really sweet comedy that I enjoyed immensely. Sure, not much happens, it is pretty fluffy, but I had a smile on my face the entire time. Robert De Niro is Ben, who is retired and feeling without purpose so he signs up for a senior internship program at e-commerce site About The Fit, run by Jules (Anne Hathaway). She is snowed under with work and he helps her out, and they eventually become the best of buds. See, doesn’t that sound nice? Read my review here. Released: 2nd October

The Walk

Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays real-life high-wire performer Philippe Petit, who walked between the World Trade Center towers on a wire in 1974. Robert Zemeckis’ film follows the Frenchman from his early street performing beginnings to his terrifying stunt, which is visually stunning and incredibly tense. Read my review here. Released in IMAX on 2nd, nationwide on 9th October

The Lobster

This must be the most original concept for a movie I have ever heard. Colin Farrell lives in a world where people are forced to find a romantic partner within 45 days or they will be turned into an animal. Yep, so unique and utterly intriguing. I cannot wait to see what happens! It also stars Rachel Weisz, John C. Reilly and Lea Seydoux. Released: 16th October

Pan

Feel like you know everything about Peter Pan?! Well, it turns out you don’t. This imagined origins story covers ground we have never seen before and shows how Peter (Levi Miller) ended up in Neverland and went on a quest to save it from the evil Captain Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman) with the help of his friends James Hook (Garrett Hedlund) and Tiger Lily (Rooney Mara). This is great fun, visually stunning and an enjoyable family film. Review coming soon. Released: 16th October

 

What are you most looking forward to? Have I missed off any you cannot wait for?
