What are we looking forward to seeing this September? Check out our picks for this month's must watch films.
Overall while Dracula Untold is an entertaining movie it does fall short in a few areas that cost the movie as a whole. If you’re a big fan of the character of Dracula in past media and literary interpretations then this may not be the movie for you.
While this movie isn’t perfect it’s still one you can enjoy and take a simple life lesson from. Not every movie can be as complicated or mind blowing as Inception while still being fun and enjoyable. Time to time it’s nice to have a simple drama such as Paper Towns that allows you to walk away with a feel good vibe. Well I hope you can walk away with a feel good vibe and if not then at least you know now how the movie was. Give Paper Towns a chance and let it take you on a quick journey of what high school or your last year of high school may possibly be like. Let it give you the chance to see what is important to take away from life while you’re young and what you can let go of.
Overall, The Judge was a decent movie to watch despite the shortcomings the story had. I hope to see more acting outside of Marvel from Robert Downey Jr. and I still hope that he’ll be with Marvel for a while. It’s his acting that helped carry a good part of the movie when the story was stilted and because of that it’s worth watching. Go see The Judge and see what verdict you’ll give it once it’s over.
Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation doesn’t try to be anything that it isn’t. It is positively entertaining and blends the best elements from the franchise’s previous four installments. Cruise has done it yet again.
When I first heard the Terminator franchise would once again be making a comeback, I was extremely skeptical. Do I love Terminator? Of course! Nothing would make me happier than to see a well executed sequel, but there were two things that made me stunt my zeal: Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, and Terminator: Salvation. Both films proved to dismantle the once astounding franchise, whose greatness we can attribute to director James Cameron, creator of many wonderfully entertaining films. Although I had my reservations, I decided to watch ‘Arrnald’ and company yet again return for some thrilling action and some wibbly wobbly timey wimey adventures.
Ant-Man is the latest installment in Marvel Studio’s plan to take over the world. Scott Lang is a slick thief talented in breaking into the most secure places, a profession with very little benefit. Scott’s criminal activity costs him his wife and his young daughter who admires him greatly. In one last heist, Scott comes across the Ant-Man suit capable of shrinking a human down to the size of...well an ant.
Winner of the 2015 Sundance Grand Jury Prize, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is a comedy-drama film based on the novel of the same name by Jessie Andrews.
Tomorrowland is very similar to Frank Walker’s jetpack. It may be flawed and expected, but it certainly does try to dream big.
