Fall is my absolute favorite time of year for a few different reasons — the changing weather, the delicious warm foods, the fun holidays, and of course, the MOVIES! Fall movie releases are some of the best because the colder temperatures mean people are more willing to go to a theater on their night out, plus films often choose this time of year to release so it will be fresh in voters’ minds for the Oscars, meaning the best of the best come out right about now.

So what are some of our picks for this month? Check them out here!:
