Movie List: October 2018

My must see films for October 2018:

Venom

October 5, 2018

Journalist Eddie Brock is trying to take down Carlton Drake, the notorious and brilliant founder of the Life Foundation. While investigating one of Drake’s experiments, Eddie’s body merges with the alien Venom — leaving him with superhuman strength and power. Twisted, dark and fueled by rage, Venom tries to control the new and dangerous abilities that Eddie finds so intoxicating.

This movie is PG13 but Venom looks crazy vicious. My eleven year old is asking to see it, but really, he couldn’t make it through The House With a Clock in its Walls, so I don’t see how he can make it through Venom. Are any of you planning to take your kids to see this? Mine normally do okay with Avenger and Marvel movies. I think I will see this first without them and I will let you know what I think!

 

A Star is Born

October 5, 2018

Seasoned musician Jackson Maine discovers — and falls in love with — struggling artist Ally. She has just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer until Jackson coaxes her into the spotlight. But even as Ally’s career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down, as Jackson fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons.

Honestly, this isn’t my kind of movie, but I am going to go see it because the reviews have already been really really strong. I have always been a fan of both Bradly Cooper and Lady Gaga, and I like the messaging in the movie. Bradly Cooper directed the movie which makes it even more enticing. What about you? Are you going to see A Star is Born?

The Hate you Give

October 12, 2018

Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds — the poor, mostly black neighborhood where she lives and the wealthy, mostly white prep school that she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is soon shattered when she witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend at the hands of a police officer. Facing pressure from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and decide to stand up for what’s right.

I saw the trailer for this movie in the theater and I thought it looked fantastic. The topic is real life and very relevant right now. The movie is PG13 but I want to see if it is something my older two boys can watch. Watch the trailer and let me know what you think!

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween

October 12, 2018

Two boys face an onslaught from witches, monsters, ghouls and a talking dummy after they discover a mysterious book by author R.L. Stine.

I was a big Goosebumps fan when it came out. Probably because I remember reading all of R.L. Stine’s books growing up. I tried and tried to get my kids to watch it, but they were too scared 🙁 I am going to go see it without them and maybe one day they will watch these movies with me on Halloween! Anyone else excited to see this?

First Man

October 12, 2018

On the heels of their six-time Academy Award®-winning smash, La La Land, Oscar®-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for Universal Pictures’ First Man, the riveting story of NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the years 1961-1969. A visceral, first-person account, based on the book by James R. Hansen, the movie will explore the sacrifices and the cost—on Armstrong and on the nation—of one of the most dangerous missions in history. Written by Academy Award® winner Josh Singer (Spotlight), the drama is produced by Wyck Godfrey & Marty Bowen (The Twilight Saga, The Fault in Our Stars) through their Temple Hill Entertainment banner, alongside Chazelle and Gosling. Isaac Klausner (The Fault in Our Stars) executive produces. DreamWorks Pictures co-finances the film.

Again, this is usually not the kind of movie I enjoy, BUT I know Ryan Gosling is amazing and the story of NASA’s mission to land on the moon is an iconic legend. I am sure the movie is going to be fantastic and probably get some award nominations. I have to check this one out!
