Top Films for October 2017

You know what time it is! Movie preview time! Here’s where I list what I want to see/recommend people check out each month.

Here are my picks for October:

Blade Runner 2049 

This is a no-brainer. This is such a highly-anticipated sequel and so, so secretive. No clue what it’s about! But you can rest assured that it will be ace because they’ve waited 32 years since the first one to make sure the sequel is good and some early reviews have called it a masterpiece. I was already onboard cause of Harrison Ford‘s return and the addition of Ryan Gosling but now I’m even more excited. Released: 5th October

The Snowman 

I love a good murder mystery and this one stars Michael Fassbender so I have even more incentive! He stars as Harry Hole, the lead detective in Jo Nesbo‘s books, who is investigating The Snowman killer, who seems to be active again. Harry and his partner Katrine (Rebecca Ferguson) must connect cold Snowman cases with the new one before the next snowfall. Reckon I’m gonna be on the edge of my seat with this one! Released: 13th October


Thor: Ragnarok 

As much as love Thor as a character and Chris Hemsworth‘s portrayal, I didn’t love his last solo movie, but I’m confident about this one because it’s in the hands of Taika Waititi, the director of the excellent Hunt for the Wilderpeople and What We Do in the Shadows. This time around Thor has to defeat Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) in a gladiator-style fight to defend Askgard. The trailer looked hilarious and there are some incredible new additions like Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum and Tessa Thompson. Released: 24th October


Breathe opens the London Film Festival just before it opens in cinemas. I did write it off a little bit because it reminded me too much of The Theory of Everything but I stopped comparing it after a while cause the tone is vastly different – this is quite light-hearted and funny at times – and Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy really shine. He plays Robin Cavendish, who contracts polio during a trip to Africa and is left paralysed from the neck down and unable to breathe on his own. Released: 27th October


Call Me By Your Name 

I have been raving about this since I saw it at Berlin International Film Festival (review here) and it finally comes to cinemas on limited release after a run at LFF. I gave it 5/5 and I want to see it again. Armie Hammer plays an academic who visits a professor at his Italian villa and develops a crush on his young son Elio (Timothee Chalamet). Sooo good! Released: 27th October

The Mountain Between Us 

I’m not sure if this is going to be good but I’m always willing to take a risk on Kate Winslet and Idris Elba, who are the only passengers onboard a charter plane when it crashes in the middle of nowhere. They must rely on each other to survive the wilderness and harsh conditions and find their way home. I love a disaster movie so will definitely be checking this out! Released: 6th October
