Yes, it’s the most wonderful time of the year again – leaves are changing colours, chestnuts are banging off the roofs of cars and it’s not only Halloween month, but in a couple of weeks it will also be the 7th annual Independent Video Store Day! Come in and celebrate all that is good and wonderful about video stores. Details to follow.

There’s a ton of excellent releases this week so my apologies in advance for the length of this missive.

New Releases!

13 Minutes – Drama about a dude who tried to kill Hitler back in the day (spoiler alert – he failed). Directed by the fella that made Downfall.

American Horror Story: Roanoke – Ghostly goings-ons are afoot in season 6 of this uneven series.

Baby Driver – Edgar Wright’s cool, music-filled action film stars the wonderfully named Ansel Elgort as a getaway driver named Baby. Stars lots of other people as well. Looks like buckets of fun.

The Beguiled – Solid cast – Kidman, Dunst, Fanning and Farrell – work for director Sophia Coppola to tell the story of a wounded Civil War soldier who finds his way to an all girl’s school. Reminds me of that scene in the Holy Grail…”Oh and spank me, and me and…”

Book of Henry – Hilariously bad movie that finds a genius kid using his wits to murder his abusive neighbour. Or something like that. My friend raved about it – “It is one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen and I cannot recommend it enough.” Can’t wait.
