2015 the Year of the Movie. November Edition

2015- The Year of the Movie: November

November 2015: Year of the Movie

For those of you new to this segment, I cover some of the biggest movies coming out in a particular month. Some I am excited for while others I dread.  Here are some of the movies coming your way in November.

November

November 6th

The Peanuts Movie

Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy

The beloved Peanuts gang is back together for another movie. This time Charlie Brown and his best friend Snoopy deal with the arrival of the little red-headed girl. Meanwhile Snoopy takes to skies to do battle with his arch-nemesis.

Spectre

Genre: Action, Adventure, Thriller

Starring:Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Dave Bautista

Are you ready for Daniel Craig’s final Bond movie? I’m so excited for this film. This film has Bond going on a secret mission to uncover a sinister organization. He is able to unravel that dark secrets behind SPECTRE and what it means for the future. The film looks good, and while it may not be able to live up to the high standards which Skyfall presented us, I expect this film to be among the better Bond films all the same.

Spotlight

Genre: Biopic, Drama, History

Starring: Rachel McAdams, Liev Strieber, Mark Ruffalo, Stanley Tucci, Billy Crudup,

The story of how journalists for the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese. Events which forever altered the Catholic church and shook it to its very foundation. It has a tremendous cast and covers a very daunting topic. I’d be interested to see how it plays out.

November 13th

The 33

Genre: Drama

Starring: Josh Brolin, Juliette Binoche, Lou Diamond-Phillips, Antonio Banderas

The true story of 33 miners trapped for 69 days

It’s about a historical moment in public history. I always find these more interesting than most biopics. You may know the ending, but not how it reached that end and that is what is worth watching. Also, Brolin, Binoche, Diamond-Phillips and Banderas: a great cast always makes a story better.

November 20th

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2

Genre:Adventure, Science-Fiction

Starring: Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Donald Sutherland, Woody Harrelson, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore

If you are a Hunger Games fan, then you are eagerly awaiting the final movie in the wildly successful franchise. I’ve never understood the love, but again I never read the series and frankly I don’t believe I was ever the targeted audience and that’s okay. (Young women need movies to watch, too ) Great cast and a great story-line coming to an exciting conclusion. I may be against taking two movies to finish one book, but it certainly has proven beneficial at the box-office.

The Night Before

Genre: Comedy

Starring: Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anthony Mackie, Mindy Kaling, Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, Michael Shannon

Three best friends who celebrate Christmas Eve together with a night of drunken madness and overall debauchery look to find the best party in New York City in what may be their long-held traditions final night.

Legend

Genre: Biography, Crime, Thriller

Starring: Tom Hardy, Christopher Eccleston

IMDb: 7.5 of 10,083 ratings

The movie has a good cast, it has done very well overseas. Discussing the most notorious identical twin brothers who happened to be gangsters in England during the 1960’s, particularly around the East End of London.

November 25th
Creed

Genre: Drama, Sport

Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Michael B. Jordan

When I heard that they were going to make another Rocky related film, I suddenly took ill. How come Stallone can’t let it go! I wasn’t looking forward to this film at all, until I saw the trailer. I thought it was a refreshing take on the Rocky franchise. This time following in the footsteps of Apollo Creed’s son who wants to be a boxer like his father. He must contend with everyone’s belief that he is a mere shadow of his father (no substance). With the help of Rocky Balboa, he looks to train hard enough to earn the right to be call a champion.

The Good Dinosaur

Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy

Starring: Steve Zahn

A Disney Pixar film where an Apatosaurus named Arlo befriends a human. (I know, I know,SCIENCE, but think animated film for children). I’m not as excited for this film as I was for Inside Out earlier this year. However, it is a Pixar movie and that means there is a legitimate chance of it being good.

Victor Frankenstein

Genre: Drama, Horror, Science-Fiction

Starring:Daniel Radcliffe, James McAvoy

I love the story of Frankenstein and have long waited for a good movie about the character. (That 1990’s film was close, but not good enough.) This film was that hope all until I saw the trailer. It comes at you from a completely different tone than expected. This one is told from Igor’s (Radcliffe) perspective. I will keep open-minded for now, but gradually my hopes are dissipating. Who knows, maybe it will feel great. They did get it in before the presumed dreaded post-Thanksgiving cruse.
