In a very crude generalization, the last three or four months of the calendar year is like the summer movie season for “smart” movies. Instead of being overloaded with expensive “tentpole” wannabe blockbusters, we instead are bombarded with wannabe Oscar-winners, some of them demanding gold statues for their promising casting alone. In that regard, the month of November has such releases as Life of Pi, Flight, Hitchcock, The Silver Linings Playbook, Lincoln, Anna Karenina, and more.
However, this is still the Hollywood we love, so there’s plenty of mainstream fare soon to be at our disposal. This month offers us the conclusion to a highly lucrative teen horror franchise (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2), a new James Bond movie (Skyfall), a remake of the ’80s masterpiece Red Dawn, and a Disney movie based on video game history (Wreck-It Ralph).
