Fancy a trip to the cinema but have no idea what to watch? November’s packed full of brilliant films, so to help you out here’s our five must-see movies of the month.
The Master – 2nd
The Master is not for the faint-hearted. An undoubtedly amazing film it explores the power of belief, violence, sex and mental health in a way that will make you want to turn away from the screen. But if you don’t mind something a bit deep this story of a cult leader who forms a friendship with a disenfranchised drifter is worth a watch. Plus, both Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix pull off incredible performances.
Argo – 7th
Based on an unbelievably true story about how the CSI rescued a group of Americans during the Iran hostage crisis of 1979, Argo is like some sort of cross between an international nail-biting drama and a Will Farrell comedy. Definitely worth watching just for Ben Affleck’s brilliant return to form, the trailer alone gave me goosebumps!
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 – 16th
For the record, I’m not saying that this final Twilight instalment is going to go down in cinema history as one of the great classics but there’s no doubt that thanks to the millions of Twi-hards around the globe, this film will be one of the most watched of the year. And that is why The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 makes it onto my must-see films list. But feel free to just ignore me. Seriously, it’s fine.
End Of Watch – 23rd
If you’re looking for a bit of action this month then the epic trailer for End Of Watch should be enough to convince you to hit the cinema. It tells a Band Of Brothers-style story of two young cops who become the target of every criminal in their area after making a major bust on a standard traffic stop. I’ll admit you could be taking a bit of chance with this one as it might not live up to its expectations but what’s life without a bit of risk-taking?
Sightseers – 30th
The very definition of a British black comedy I cannot recommend Sightseers enough. Directed by Kill List director, Ben Wheatley, and starring screenwriters Alice Lowe and Steve Oram as the murderous caravanning couple, this film will creep you out and keep you laughing throughout.
