Autumn’s Movie Style Scenery

Poet William Allingham once said, “Autumn’s the mellow time,” and I couldn’t agree more. Fall inspires tranquil moments filled with soothing cups of hot tea, warm, comfy boots and movie marathons that extend well beyond the orange-tinged horizon. With frost on the pumpkins and a Harvest Moon over the ocean, we’re treated to a wide array of movies flowing through the gentlest of seasons like a calm wave, inviting us to curl up in our coziest blanket and stay awhile (at least until the Holiday Movie Marathon begins). Beyond that horizon, also known as the time between Summer Blockbusters and Academy Award Season, we’re treated to movies as diverse as the multicolored leaves on the trees.

In the upcoming weeks, we’ll get to witness Denzel Washington take Flight as a heroic pilot, Daniel Craig watch the Skyfall in his spiffiest James Bond attire, Daniel Day Lewis channel his inner Lincoln during the Civil War battle while Alec Baldwin (at least his voice) commandeers the role of Santa Claus in Rise of the Guardians, conducting his own version of (animated) battle with Jude Law’s nefarious bogeyman. Not to be out dramatized is Keira Knightley’s Anna Karenina, who has major drama of the romantic, literary kind rivaling that of Bradley Cooper, who plays a former high school teacher recently released from a mental institute with the Silver Linings Playbook and romantic issues of his own. John C. Reilly lends his voice to the destructive but well-intentioned Wreck-it Ralph, who crashes into theaters as well as arcade games, intent on finally playing the part of hero. The Life of Pi, meanwhile, couldn’t be sweeter as our heroic main character is treated to the ultimate ocean view.

While we’re treated to the ultimate in movies during the most colorful of seasons, now is the best time to take in the vibrant scenery, preferably along a colorful coastline, followed by a scenic stop at your local movie theater…
