Summer 2014 came and went. I had high expectations for it, to be honest. Summer for me is synonym of rest, travelling, binging on wonderful movie releases and great books, eating wonderful foods and spending quality time with my loved ones. Let's be fair, most of my summer expectations were met, but the one department where it was a huge fail, was the movie department. The only movie worth watching this summer was Maleficent. That is to say a lot. I was shocked by the poor selections and it is fair to say that I completely skipped going to the theater. Good thing there was Netflix and HBO to visually entertain me!

With fall slowly creeping on us, I thought it would be nice to put together a list of movies I'd like to see. You know, just as a reminder...

[1] The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (September 12)
One couple's story as they try to reclaim the life and love they once knew and pick up the pieces of a past that may be too far gone

[2] Gone Girl (October 3)
With his wife's disappearance having become the focus of an intense media circus, a man sees the spotlight turned on him when it's suspected that he may not be innocent.

[3] This Is Where I Leave You (September 19)
When their father passes away, four grown siblings are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens.

[4] Men, Women & Children ( October 3)
A look at the sexual frustrations that young teenagers and adults face in today's world.

[5] The Judge (October 10)
Big city lawyer Hank Palmer returns to his childhood home where his father, the town's judge, is suspected of murder. Hank sets out to discover the truth and, along the way, reconnects with his estranged family.

[6] Dear White People (October 27)
A satire that follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where a riot breaks out over a popular African American-themed party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film explores racial identity in post-racial America while weaving a universal story of forging one's unique path in the world.

[7] Nightcrawler (October 17)
A young man stumbles upon the underground world of L.A. freelance crime journalism.

[8] Fury (October 17)
April, 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, and with a rookie soldier thrust into their platoon, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.


[9] Interstellar (November 7)
A group of explorers make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.

[10] The Theory of Everything (November 7)
A look at the relationship between the famous physicist Stephen Hawking and his wife.

[11] Annie: It's A Hard Knock Life (December 19)
Business tycoon and mayoral candidate Benjamin Stacks launches a campaign to take in Annie, a young girl who has been living with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan since her parents left her as a baby.

[12] Wild (December 5)
A chronicle of one woman's 1,100-mile solo hike undertaken as a way to recover from a recent catastrophe.

What are you excited about seeing this fall?

  1. I'm really looking forward to seeing Gone Girl, I've just started reading the book and it's amazing so far. I'm a bit nervous about the Annie remake though, I loved the original so much, I'm scared they're going to ruin it...

    1. The book was amazing. I am glad I read it. Like you I am really looking forward to the movie! As for Annie, I wouldn't worry too much. I think the remake will be just as good as the original with a modern twist. But a classic will always remain a classic ;)
      Thanks for stopping by!
