Now that the weather is turning, it’s time to cash in your bikinis for jackets and your poolside for inside. And with fall rolling in proper, there’s no better time to bundle up with your buddies or beau and go to the movies…especially this fall, with all of its promising features. So what movies are you excited to see over the next few months? Here are our top picks from now through the end of November:
Coming in hot from Sundance’s rave reviews, Josh Radnor’s second film stars himself as a college admissions officer who falls for a student, played by Elizabeth Olsen.
Finding Nemo: 3D
The question is not why, but why not?
Director Paul Thomas Anderson is at it again after “There Will Be Blood”…this time with an adaptation closely resembling the story of L. Ron Hubbard and his start of Scientology. Starring Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
The Perks Of Being A Wallflower
Based on the high school literary fave by Stephen Chbosky and starring Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, and Ezra Miller as the trio of awkward teens who come into their own together through music, sex, and drugs.
French film about seventeen young teenagers who decide to all get pregnant together. Wait, qu’est-ce que c’est?!
House At The End Of The Street
Well if you’re going to scare the crap out of yourself this Halloween season, it might as well be with Jennifer Lawrence as lead.
Sci-fi, action packed thriller starring Joseph Gordon Levitt looking like Bruce Willis when he was younger trying to kill his older self. Oh, and Bruce Willis is in it too. Confused much? You gotta see it to put the pieces together.
Won’t Back Down
Prepare to let your faucet leak…Viola Davis is in yet another epic, female-triumphant role. Her and Maggie Gyllenhaal plot to improve and take over the school her daughter attends because of its systematic failure.
If you can hack the subtitles for another foreign film, this one might be a hilarious and oddly heartwarming gem about a man who donates sperm early in his life, only to find out later that he has 533 children out there.
Continue the suspense as Liam Neeson plays the baddest dad on the planet with a very particular set of skills.
If you’re a Tim Burton fan, but can’t bring yourself to watch The Nightmare Before Christmas for the twentieth year in a row…this one is for you!
A star studded film portraying a reporter (Zac Efron) who sets out to investigate a case involving a death row inmate (John Cusack). Oh, and you get to see Nicole Kidman pee on Zac, just sayin…
A film ripe with drama…where a beautiful and aspiring film student moves into the home of a Los Angeles couple, inevitably testing their marriage.
Starring in and directed by Ben Affleck, this story is based on a too good to be true (but is) story of the CIA’s plans to extract 6 men held hostage in Iran through a covert fake film mission.
Killing Them Softly
Crime, the mob, and poker seem to go hand in hand every time. In this adaptation of the 1974 novel “Cogan’s Trade” by George V. Higgins, you get all of that plus a gun toting Brad Pitt!
The Loneliest Planet
Because, if you’re going to be waiting in the throws of suspense, why not do it whilst watching Gael Garcia Bernal?
With a trailer of such proportion and a cast of such caliber, this film about our ultimate karma transcending time and space had better be good.
The true story of Jay Moriarty, the Californian soul surfer who was made famous when he and surfing mentor Frosty Hesson set out to master the legendary Mavericks break in Half Moon Bay.

November Must Sees:
Three names: Daniel Day Lewis. Three words: Best Actor Nomination. Watch DDL as he portrays this country’s 16th president…Honest Abe.

Silver Linings Playbook
Two crazy people make one whole entity, right? At least, that’s what Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence character’s in this David O. Russell film are seeking to find out.
Life Of Pi
