Fall Flicks

The fall is a great time for watching movies – blockbusters  and award contenders grace the theaters, and the cooler weather makes curling up on the couch with a big bowl of popcorn a wonderful way to spend an evening or Saturday afternoon.  Here’s a list of some upcoming films and new releases in theaters, as well as some classic fall flicks for you to enjoy on those crisp autumn afternoons when you’re not outside throwing the football or BBQing with the neighbors.

Cloud Atlas – In theaters October 26

Plum Creek

Cloud Atlas is an exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future. An adaption of David Mitchell’s genre-defying novel  of the same title, the movie transports viewers to six different time periods with interwoven stories that move back and forth in time. Cloud Atlas is among the largest non-studio financed movies ever made, and comes from the minds of the Wachowski siblings, who were behind The Matrix Trilogy, and Tom Twyker of Run Lola Run. The trailer is 5 minutes long – so brace yourself.

Dead Poets Society – 1989

Peter Weir’s Dead Poets Society is a classic, inspirational movie set at a conservative boy’s prep school in 1950s New England that exhibits all the hallmarks of the fall – back to school nerves, football games and the gorgeous fall foliage of New England. As John Keating, an English professor at the prep school, Robin Williams inspires his students to a love of poetry, to challenge the status quo and to embrace life by seizing the day!

Frankenweenie – In theaters NOW


Frankenweenie is a great movie to see in theaters this month for some Halloween fun. Based on Tim Burton’s short live-action film from 1984, Frankenweenie re-imagines Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein as the playfully macabre tale of a young scientist, Victor Frankenstein, whose love for his dog Sparky motivates him to bring the pup back to life.

When Harry Met Sally – 1989


A classic chick flick, When Harry Met Sally follows the title characters from the time they meet through twelve years of chance encounters in New York City. The film is probably best known for its deli scene (if you’ve seen the film, you know what we’re talking about), and it features many fall scenes, such as the one above in Central Park.
