When I first started this blog, the tagline was, “Books, Music, Movies, TV, and More!” You may have noticed that I’ve taken half of those things out of the current tagline. Why? Because I really don’t talk about movies and TV all that much on this blog.
The other reason is because, well, I don’t watch movies that often. I’ve joked before about how I’m bad at watching movies, but is it really a joke if it’s the truth? I would rather watch a three-part true crime series on YouTube in which each video is over an hour than spend an hour and a half to a film. It just feels like more of a commitment.
But, I’m looking to change that. First off, I’m going to watch some spooky or Halloween-themed movies this month. And secondly, there are finally some feature films coming to theaters this fall and winter that I’m actually excited for.
Today I’d like to talk about those movies I’m going to try and see in theaters. I’ve only been to the movies once this year and I feel the need to change that. I think these four films are a good place to start.
When a systems engineer blows the whistle on a dangerous technology, Charlie’s Angels from across the globe are called into action, putting their lives on the line to protect society.

This movie is going to be gay. Even if it’s not canonically gay, it’s going to be gay. I also feel a lot better about a Charlie’s Angels reboot— or any female-led action movie— directed by a woman (in this case, Elizabeth Banks). My lesbian ass needs this movie in my life ASAP.
Elsa the Snow Queen and her sister Anna embark on an adventure far away from the kingdom of Arendelle. They are joined by friends, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven.

Contrary to sudden public opinion, I love Frozen. I think it’s one of Disney’s best films. So I’m pretty excited for the sequel, especially since it seems a little darker than the first one. Catch me as the only non-parent adult in a theater full of kids this fall!
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
The surviving Resistance faces the First Order once more as Rey, Finn, and Poe Dameron’s journey continues. With the power and knowledge of generations behind them, the final battle commences.
In theaters December 20
I mean, why would I not be excited for this movie? I can’t wait to see how this trilogy ends, how the Skywalker saga ends. I love Rey, Finn, and Poe so much. Kylo can choke though. Anyway, I’ve been eagerly anticipating this movie since I walked out of the theater from seeing The Last Jedi. What can I say? The Force is strong with this one.
Following the lives of four sisters, Amy, Jo, Beth and Meg, as they come of age in America in the aftermath of the Civil War. Though all very different from each other, the March sisters stand by each other through difficult and changing times.

I loved Little Women as a little girl. It was the only classic that ever connected with me at that age. Not even The Chronicles of Narnia or Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland spoke to me that way these sisters did. I’m so excited to see them brought to life. I haven’t seen any other adaptation, and honestly plan to keep it that way. This is the only one I need in my life.
