Fall always happens to be a great time for new movies; whether it be the change to colder weather or the holiday season approaching, it’s a great time of the year to grab some popcorn and go to the movies! Here are four movies that I am very excited to see, but I may not have a chance until Thanksgiving break so I included some movie critics reviews!

 

A Star is Born

The trailer for this film gives me the chills. With co-stars Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, this film is destined to be incredible. With a 95% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, I think it’s safe to say that the film lives up to its expectations. Coming to theaters this Friday, October 5th, A Star is Born is this season’s must-see film.

Assassination Nation

Assassination Nation has caught my eye; I think I read somewhere that this movie is a mix of The Heathers and Mean Girls. Although it was rated only 68% on Rotten Tomatoes, this film looks like those two mentioned films, but on steroids. The plot of this film is, in a small town, an unknown hacker releases information about everyone in the town (from personal texts to private pictures) and the town turns into an insane epicenter of anger and violence. Although the film was already released, on September 21, it remains at the top of my lists for films to see.

Bohemian Rhapsody

This film displays the raise into stardom of the band Queen’s main singer and artist, Freddie Mercury. Bohemian Rhapsody, which is released to theaters on November 2nd, displays how the band was challenged and questioned social and musical norms which ultimately lead to their success. Overall, this film looks transportive and inspiring.

Beautiful Boy

Finally, this film stars two renowned actors, Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet, and ensures that it will be a good sad film. Timothée plays a teenage boy who struggles with an addiction to meth and the film displays how his struggle affects not only his character but his father, played by Steve Carell, and the rest of his family. Beautiful Boy comes to theaters October 12th and will be a great tear-jerking film.
