November's Must Watch Movies!

500 Days Of Film Reviews The Films To Watch In November 2018

Well, here we are in 2018's penultimate month of November. London Film Festival has come to a close and awards season is now in full swing. We have a month of marvelous movies ahead.

 

However, first, let’s look back at the best films of October 2018.

 

My month at the cinema started out very well indeed with Glenn Close’s superb performance in The Wife. Then came Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut - the wonderful A Star Is Born featuring brilliant performances from both Cooper and Lady Gaga.

 

October continued in impressive form with Damien Chazelle’s breathtaking and poignant First Man before treating us to some fun and nostalgia with the return of Michael Myers in David Gordon Green’s Halloween.

 

Freddie Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, was also (finally) released in October - to mixed reviews. Meanwhile, Netflix had a strong October. Hot on the heels of Hold The Dark came the release of both Apostle and 22 July

 

I still have some catching up to do regarding films released in UK cinemas in October. For example, I managed to miss Venom, Columbus, Bad Times At The El Royale, Mandy, Dogman, Fahrenheit 11/9, The Hate You Give, Don’t Worry He Won’t Get Far On Foot, Possum and The Guilty.

 

I know, I know… I have a lot of catching up to do! I blame the BFI London Film Festival, which took place during October and kept me busy watching films such as Suspiria, Beautiful Boy, The Sisters Brothers and If Beale Street Could Talk.

 

Looking forward, there are lots of films to keep us busy in November… let’s take a look!
