Guys it’s one of my favorite months of the year, October. Why you might ask? The weather is not too hot or too cold, soccer season is fully on around the world, Halloween is coming (free candy from my nephew) and movies, movies and more MOVIES!
From the family films like Pan, where we can see another side to the story about the beloved kid from Neverland, Peter Pan. The comedy and thrills are combined together to create a different type of film in The Final Girls. This film is like a mix between Silicon Valley and Final Destination, definitely a movie to watch with your friends. There are also true events films like Steve Jobs. He influenced modern technology as we know it. The movie is a depiction of the struggles that Jobs himself had to go through in order to achieve success before his passing.
Weather you want to go to the movies with your friends, family, or on your own, remember two really important things: always butter your popcorn and every week is movie week!
