Top Films for September


How is it September already?! I can’t believe it’s here but there is an impressive slate of films heading your way this month, so I had to expand my usual five-six recommendations to eight and I could have even included more. There is THAT much cool stuff coming up.

Here are my top choices:

Bridget Jones’s Baby

I LOVE the Bridget Jones movies so of course I am excited to see this. Renee Zellweger is back as our lovable singleton, but this time around she becomes pregnant and she isn’t sure whether it’s her ex Mark Darcy’s (Colin Firth) or her new love interest, played by Patrick Dempsey. Cannot wait! Released: 16th September

Captain Fantastic

Viggo Mortensen gives an incredible performance here as a dad who raises his six kids in the forest of America’s Pacific Northwest. They don’t have developed social skills but have the mental and physical capabilities of adults. Does this make him a bad parent? The parents of his recently deceased wife seem to think so. This is heart-warming, funny and a real gem. Review coming next week. Released: 9th September




Blair Witch

I’m not really into horror films any more but I decided to give this a go because I was such a fan of the 1999 original The Blair Witch Project. The brother of the girl who goes missing in the first one sets out to find her with a group of friends but they soon encounter some VERY scary goings on. This is absolutely terrifying and my heart didn’t stop beating like crazy for a really long time. Released: 15th September

Hunt for the Wilderpeople

I loved director Taika Waititi’s horror comedy What We Do in the Shadows so I have to check out his next one. This follows Sam Neill and his son, who get lost in the New Zealand forest and are subject to a manhunt. I hope it’s as hilarious as his other work. Released: 16th September



The Infiltrator

This exciting crime drama stars Bryan Cranston as an agent who helps bust Pablo Escobar’s money-laundering organisation by going undercover. I reckon this is going to be nail-bitingly thrilling. Released: 16th September


And another uncover cop thriller, this time with Daniel Radcliffe, who shaves off his head to be accepted within a white supremist terror group so he can take them down from within. Released: 23rd September



The Magnificent Seven

I was pretty sceptical when this remake was announced because the original is such a well-known Western but the trailers look promising and the cast features Chris Pratt, Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke. The titular seven gunmen come together to protect a village from savage thieves. Released: 23rd September

Deepwater Horizon

I’m sure most of us remember the disastrous Gulf of Mexico oil spill in 2010, the worst in US history, and it has now been transformed into a movie which focuses on the lives of the crew onboard the rig before the explosion. The impressive cast includes Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell, Dylan O’Brien and Kate Hudson.
