Now it’s going to get good.
We have hit the prestige movie season. While some get excited about the summer and its big blockbusters, 2016 didn’t have the most exciting summer at the cineplex. Others (like me) love when the holidays are upon us because that’s when the Oscar-worthy movies come out on a weekly basis.
Yes, there are still some major blockbuster releases that shouldn’t be ignored like “Rogue One,” “Doctor Strange,” and “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” but there are also dramas like “Manchester by the Sea,” “La La Land,” and Martin Scorsese’s long-awaited “Silence.”
Here are 29 titles coming out by the end of the year that you shouldn’t miss:
“Doctor Strange” – November 4
For the first time the Marvel Cinematic Universe is delving into the mystical realm of the comics and the result doesn’t disappoint. “Doctor Strange” is a worthy origin story, but the dazzling special effects are what will stay with you.
“Hacksaw Ridge” – November 4
Mel Gibson has been locked in a PR nightmare for the last 10 years following a DUI arrest during which he made anti-Semitic remarks. But it seems like time has healed those wounds at least enough that his latest directing effort is winning over audiences. It stars Andrew Garfield as a World War II medic who becomes the first conscientious objector in American history to be awarded the Medal of Honor.
“Trolls” – November 4
Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake are just a few of the stars who lend their voices in this animated comedy about a pair of Trolls who set out on an adventure to rescue their friends.
