Movie Review Rundown: November!

Movie Review Rundown: November!

QUICK REVIEWS: RECENT AND UPCOMING FILMS!

In an effort to discuss even more films that I've watched, I've decided to start a little blurb edition on some recent films I've seen, in the theater (and some at home)! Also, since it's awards season (cue happy dance!) I've been watching some films that the typical movie goer might have overlooked or might not have seen just yet -- and I'd like to hightlight those as well!

Below are a few films I've recently seen within the last month (minus a few like Justice League, that I saw but don't want to discuss). Here we have three that are currently in theaters and a couple that haven't hit theaters yet but that I got to see early!

MOVIES:

  • ROMAN J. ISRAEL, ESQ.
  • MUDBOUND
  • THOR: RAGNAROK
  • MOLLY'S GAME (out Christmas Day)
  • WONDER
  • WONDER WHEEL (out December 1st)

I'd love to chat about BLACK PANTHER, A WRINKLE IN TIME, and SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING with you! :)

Coming off of last year when we saw more films with inclusive casts coming out in theaters, I wanted to take a moment to highlight some big tent-pole, blockbuster films that are all about inclusion! 

Dunkirk (and Nolan & Zimmer)!

Dunkirk (and Nolan & Zimmer)!

I want to preface this by saying this is not a spoiler review. These are just some thoughts I had while watching the film, my thoughts after the film, and me expressing my love for Christopher Nolan and Hans Zimmer! :)

Dunkirk follows "Allied soldiers from Belgium, the British Empire and France as they are surrounded by the German army and evacuated during a fierce battle in World War II."*

Okay, y'all -- what can I really say about Dunkirk!? :) It's a little hard for me to fully express my thoughts on this one. I've waited exactly a week to write this, letting my experience settle in and to try to grasp what I witnessed (and also because the NYC premiere is tomorrow and I wanted this post to come out right before it)!
