Fall 2015 Movies

Posted by: Donje Putnam

The weather is tuning, and what better place to cuddle up on a chill evening than the movie theater.  Did you know that you can walk to The Regal from Commonwealth at York Apartments?  Enjoy a brisk walk and work off those Junior Mints before you even eat them!

Here are the upcoming movies for October 2015, which ones are you going to see?

UPDATE: SEE THIS MOVIE!! I saw it this weekend and it is really good!  The Martian, starring Matt Dillon is based on, what I thought was a pretty good book about a man lost in space (er, on Mars).  How could he even survive?  He’s a botanist for heaven sake.  Here’s the official synopsis from, please read this in a deep voice:

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney’s safe return.

Vinny Jones

Legend, starring Tom Hardy and Tom Hardy as twin gangster who terrorized London.  It's a gangster movie.  I typically like British gangster movies, but they all seem to star Vinny Jones.  I'm gonna miss him, but hopefully this movie will be good.  Offical blurb from  Why not read this one in Vinny Jones' voice? Also, this is a picture of Vinny Jones so you know who he is.

The true story of the rise and fall of London’s most notorious gangsters, Reggie and Ron Kray, both portrayed by Tom Hardy in a double performance. Legend is a classic crime thriller taking us into the secret history of the 1960s and the extraordinary events that secured the infamy of the Kray twins.  

The Peanuts Movie.  I’m not sure how I feel about this remake of a piece of my childhood.  Will they be as loveable with another dimension?  I did enjoy Peanutizing myself. 

PeanutizeHere is the summary of this movie from

In Peanuts, a 3D, CGI animated comedic adventure, Snoopy, the world’s most lovable beagle – and flying ace! – embarks upon his grea

test mission as he and his team take to the skies to pursue their arch-nemesis, while his best pal Charlie Brown begins his own epic quest back home.

Spectre, starring Daniel Craig--note the British spelling?  I am looking forward to this, as I do to all of Daniel Craig’s James Bond movies.  He is a favorite 007 of mine.  Plot summary from, read it in the teacher's voice. Wah-wah-wah.

A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organization known as SPECTRE.  

Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond's actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.

Finally, Room, another book into movie.  The book made me cry, it was very sad and I can only expect to cry more at the movie.  Also what is WRONG with people?  Who locks up people in rooms?

An exploration of the boundless love between a mother and her child under the most harrowing of circumstances. Told through the eyes of five-year-old-Jack (Jacob Tremblay), Room is a thrilling and emotional tale that celebrates the resilience and power of the human spirit. To Jack, Room is the world.... It's where he was born, it's where he and his Ma (Brie Larson) eat and sleep and play and learn. But while it’s home to Jack, to Ma it’s a prison. Through her fierce love for her son, Ma has managed to create a childhood for him in their ten-by-ten-foot space. But as Jack’s curiosity is building alongside Ma’s own desperation – she knows that Room cannot contain either indefinitely.
