As we get closer to Halloween, will those Venom(ous) spirits consume our movie nights or will a family-friendly tale create Goosebumps (2): (where a) Haunted Halloween promises a spooky good time? Can Smallfoot, quite clearly a G-rated gem, take an even bigger leap thanks to the littlest moviegoers? Might we happily stay in the sweet present moment (horror aside) within A House With a Clock in its Walls or will we bypass all that cuteness to attend “class” at Night School, hoping to learn the biggest lessons (any time of day or night?) Moving forward, will Bad Times at the El Royale spell good times within our neighborhood movie theaters?
Casting her own spell, perhaps A Star is Born, being the wise-but-troubled star she is, can counsel an also-troubled but Beautiful Boy, whose struggles outweigh the lofty goals of the First Man in space. How high will he soar this weekend? Still flying high in our strange, sparkling space, the stars requesting A Simple Favor, not fooling anyone by their misleading title, promise to complicate things even more.
I simply can’t wait for the weekend!
