Top Films for November

It’s the start of November, which means it’s movie preview time! We’re slowly getting into awards season, with a lot of London Film Festival favourites hitting general release, but that doesn’t mean the blockbusters have disappeared. Here’s my recommendations for November:

Bad Moms Christmas

This may not be a high-brow or even credible choice, but I LOVED the original. It was so funny, more entertaining than I expected and with great chemistry between bad moms Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn. I can’t wait to see what shenanigans they get up to in this festive edition! Released: 1st November

Murder on the Orient Express

The title speaks for itself – someone gets murdered during a train journey on the Orient Express and the killer is still onboard so detective Poirot (Kenneth Branagh) must solve the crime. This adaptation of the Agatha Christie classic is very well-known yet I have amazingly gone my whole life without knowing whodunnit so I’ll be able to guess too! This has an incredible cast too – Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, Michelle Pfeiffer, Judi Dench and sooo many more. Released: 3rd November

 

The Killing of a Sacred Deer 

I’ve been raving about this for a while so of course it made this list. Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell play a couple whose family is thrown into chaos when teenager Martin (Barry Keoghan) puts some form of curse on them. The performances are excellent all round and this psychological thriller is deliciously dark and twisted. You can read my review here. Released: 3rd November

Paddington 2

I loved the first Paddington so I thought it was impossible to surpass, but miraculously this sequel is better. It is funny, full of heart, full of mischief and accompanied by a wonderfully hammy performance by Hugh Grant. Perfect! Released: 10th November

 

Ingrid Goes West 

I was so gutted to miss this at the London Film Festival but it was worth the wait. Aubrey Plaza plays Ingrid, someone who is not involved in the present because she’s constantly on social media. She becomes obsessed with Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen) and heads to LA to try and become her best friend. This is very dark and a brutal satire about the dangers of social media and how fake profiles can be. Released: 17th November.

The Florida Project

This was one of my highlights from the London Film Festival but it won’t please everybody. It is very indie and not much happens but it is such a rich, human tale with stunning child performances (keep an eye out for Brooklynn Prince!) so I think it’s worth a cinema trip. It is basically about a bunch of kids who live in a motel near the Disney resorts in Florida. You can read my review here. Released: 10th November

 

 

Justice League

I didn’t love any of the DCEU films until this year’s Wonder Woman and hopefully Justice League will maintain the standard that set. Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) go in search for new superheroes to join their team – Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) to honour the late Superman (Henry Cavill) and defeat the evil Steppenwolf. I hope this is good. Released: 17th November

Battle of the Sexes 

This is another one I’m sad I missed at the London Film Festival. Emma Stone looks set for another Oscar nomination with her turn as tennis star Billie Jean King in this retelling of her match against the retired Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell). I’ve heard good things about this one! Released: 24th September
