5 Must-See Movies in October ‘018

Strangely enough, I feel like I haven’t watched a movie in a while. Did Hollywood overwhelm us with all the heavyweight films that dropped during the first half of the year? I believe so, I mean Avengers: Infinity War was a tough act to follow. It is quite the age we live in when there are still more comic book based movies on the way. Although, I am still on the fence with how I feel about this month’s big hitter. Let’s just have a look:

Halloween

Well, isn’t this franchise becoming convoluted? I thought we were on a fresh franchise. But, I also thought they tried this ‘generation later’ hook, already. Either way, a Halloween movie is a Halloween movie, and we know exactly what we can expect from it. It is what it is, and it’s usually a decent film to watch.

The Bill Murray Stories

Who doesn’t love Bill Murray? Seriously? Now, imagine him just unexpectedly showing up at your door, or sitting down with you at a restaurant. This doc is all about Bill Murray’s legendary appearances out of nowhere in the most random of locations. Essentially, this is a film that will keep you smiling. It’s wholesomeness at its best.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

This is easily one of the most retold Christmas stories of all time. As a kid, I believe there were at least a dozen cartoons that had a Nutcracker themed episode. So, with that said, isn’t it worth checking out this big-budget version of a tale we all know so well?

Bad Times at the El Royale

Interesting. This looks like a film that will just be plain old good. In a time full of remakes, retellings, and reimaginings, an original film is a treasure. Conceptually there are a lot of factors that make this one worth a watch from setting to theme. I’m kind of excited to see how this one works out.

Venom

The whole concept of a Venom movie without some Spider-Man context is a terrible idea. Straight up. There are some great Venom stories from the comic books; however, the web-slinger is an integral piece of what Venom is. Sure, we have to watch it, but it doesn’t mean we have to be happy about it. Expectations are low.

  4. Was all the “we”s in the Venom part intentional? I bet they were. I love it :). Anyway, I’m with you. I’d love for ‘Venom’ to be good but I just don’t see it coming. My expectations are so low I sincerely keep forgetting I have my tickets to see it Thursday :/. The rest of these options look intriguing though – especially ‘The Nutcracker and the Four Realms’ because I thought it was coming out in December! Does this mean it will be a little darker? Who knows?
