Films for the Cold Season

by Alison DeLuca

I like my movies the way I like my books: any way I can get them. Yes, I'll go to the theater and load up on popcorn and sit through all the previews. As well, I also love streaming films at home, feet up on the coffee table and CLEAN bathroom close by.

This fall I have several choices for my fall movie lineup. Here's what I plan to watch:

movie poster of The Girl on the Train

The Girl on the Train - Seems like this just came out yesterday, but it's probably already gone from theaters. Whatever happened to the days of Star Wars running for 18 months at the same theater? Since I belong to the CMWAL (Clueless Moms Without A Life) club, I'll be streaming this one as soon as it hits the cable / Apple TV lineups.

Loved the book, love Emily Blunt, so - yeah. This one is a given.

movie poster of Doctor Strange

Dr. Strange - I'm in love with both Benedict and Tilda.

Plus those previews were the bomb.

movie poster for Loving

Loving looks amazing. I'll try my damnedest to make the theater release, but if Clueless Mom stuff gets in the way I'll stream this one the minute it hits my box. I'm a huge Ruth Negga fan, and this is one compelling story.

movie poster for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - Eddie Redmayne aka most gorgeous ginger ever born! Who, by the way, is also my kid's bae. Yup, we'll have tickets the first week for this one, even though I have no clue what the actual story is. No matter. We're there.

Rogue One - Can I interest my kid in Star Wars in time to get her to this film with her dorky mom? I've succeeded in getting her to watch Stranger Things, so it's a possibility. Fingers crossed.

movie still from Passengers

Passengers - JLaw and Christopher Pratt + sci-fi make this a must-see. Even if I have to sit by my lonesome, I'm going.

movie still from Bad Moms

Bad Moms - This summer I missed the film I wanted to watch with my girlfriends. Why did we miss it? Because we are lame, and we suck, and because our kids needed rides to sports events. Best believe I'm shaking up a pitcher of cosmos and inviting the other CMWAL members over for this one.

It's always good to have plans in life, and these are mine. What are you watching?
