guide//FALL MOVIE PREVIEW

Well, we've made it! Oscar season is upon us, which means the percentages of quality films releasing increases and we can all be guaranteed a little more bang for our bucks at the movie theater. Sure, the summer blockbuster season is fun and makes a ton of money, but many of the films released in the next four months will be the same films you hear about at the beginning of next year when the Academy Awards and Golden Globes are handed out. A few of these will go on to enter the worldwide lexicon as some of the greatest and most memorable films of all time.
