Ah Fall… school’s back in session, the leaves are falling, and we are approaching the 200th day of quarantine, But you know what that means… Spooky Season is just around the corner, and what better way to get prepared this fall than with movies and new shows? From a new star studded comedy to the highly anticipated second season of The Mandalorian, there is something for everyone. Here is my lineup of upcoming and newly released titles for you to binge this fall.
- Hubie Halloween (Netflix)
Cast: Adam Sandler as Hubie DuBois, Kevin James as Officer Steve Downing, Julie Bowen as Violet Valentine, Maya Rudolph as Mrs. Herlihy, Ray Liotta, Steve Buscemi as Hubie’s neighbor, Rob Schneider, Kenan Thompson, China Anne McClain, Noah Schnapp as Tommy Valentine, Shaquille O’Neal, and many more.
On October 7th, catch Adam Sandler as Hubie DuBois, the eccentric good-natured townsman, who after years of being the victim of the community’s most brutal pranks and torment around Halloween, finds himself in the middle of a real murder. As someone who has always loved Sandler’s films, I am especially excited to see him take on the Halloween scene with some classics by his side. If you are looking for a whole lot of laughs and a few scares, check out Hubie Halloween streaming exclusively on Netflix next month!
- I’m Thinking Of Ending Things (Netflix)
Cast: Jesse Plemons as Jake, Jessie Buckley as The Woman, Toni Collette as Mother, David Thewlis as Father, Guy Boyd as Janitor.
Director: Charlie Kaufman
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Based on the novel by Lein Reid, follow the twisted story of a woman visiting her boyfriend’s parents in a secluded farm up north amidst a terrible winter storm, when things go south. This psychological thriller not only consists of some of the most amazing cinematography I have seen in a long time, but beautifully captures the inner workings of the characters. It is hard to describe the rollercoaster that this movie takes you on, so I am going to let it speak for itself… You can stream it now on Netflix.
- The Mandalorian- Season 2 (Disney+)
Cast: Pedro Pascal as Din Djarin / The Mandalorian
This is the way… It’s finally here, the much anticipated season of The Mandalorian is coming October 30th. The trailer dropped today, and I must say that I am more hyped than ever and I cannot wait to see what adventures lie ahead for one of the cutest creatures in the galaxy. If you haven’t watched the first season, it is a perfect time to get caught up before the next release!
- On the Rocks (AppleTV+)
Cast: Rashida Jones as Laura, Bill Murray as Felix, Marlon Wayans as Dean, Jessica Henwick as Fiona, Jenny Slate as Vanessa.
Genre: Action/ Comedy
Looking for a break from the dark, spooky, or space adventures? Look no further than the new AppleTV+ original comedy starring no other than Bill Murray and Rashida Jones. The film follows a woman from New York and her eccentric father as they try to find out what her husband is really up to. I am a huge Bill Murray fan, so I always try to be optimistic when it comes to his releases. Even though this strays a bit from what I normally watch, I am excited to see if AppleTV+ pulls through with this one. You can stream it starting September 22nd.
- #Alive (Netflix)
Cast: Yoo Ah-In, Park Shin-Hye, and more.
Director: Il Cho
Genre: Horror/ Drama
Ever wonder what it’s like to live in an apocalypse? … Well, the movie is hitting home this year, but this zombie film is just what I needed to get ready for Halloween. This Korean lockdown film is directed by Cho Il-Hyung and follows a video game live streamer who must fight for his life as he fends off the apocalypse from his apartment. If you are looking for a great horror movie, I’d recommend giving #Alive a chance… streaming now.
