With school starting and work piling on, students are looking for stress management strategies. Although not a permanent solution, I find going to see a movie over the weekend or during my free time gives me a break from reality. Here is a guide to what I expect to be the best movies in September.

  1. Blair Witch ProjectBlair Witch – A horror flick about a few students trying to find the connection between the disappearance of a girl and the Blair Witch-The movie is documentary-esque, and Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 100 percent. The film is R-rated with a release date of Sept. 16.
  2. snowden-movie-posterSnowden– It is a high intensity drama based on the true story of an NSA worker trying to expose the truth of privacy to the world. With a 6 out of 10 IMDb rating, this movie about may have a tough time living up to the real world scandal. This movie is R-rated with a release date of Sept. 16.
  3. magnificent_seven_ver3The Magnificent Seven– This western crime movie is a remake about a group of seven deadly outlaws who join together to save the town of Rose Creek. With a talented cast, including Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt, and an IMDb rating of 8.2 out of 10, I expect this movie to be nothing less than great. This movie is rated PG-13 with a release date of Sept. 23.
  4. missperegrineMiss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children– This fantasy film, based on the book by Ransom Riggs, is about a teenage boy who travels to a magical world to discover the truth about his grandfather’s tales and his own family history. The strange plot has the potential to be a remarkable Tim Burton film. IMDb gave this movie 8.5 out of 10, and the visuals in the trailer give a glimpse into how great this film could be. The movie is rated PG-13 and has a release date of Sept. 30

Some people may prefer to watch a movie for a cheaper price. Here is a list of some of the best summer movies that are coming out this fall on DVD.

  1. the-nice-guysThe Nice Guys–  I give this a 5 out of 5 for great plot, casting and soundtrack. It is a personal favorite and is about two private detectives in the 1970s trying to solve a case that gets weirder and weirder as it progresses. Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe have great chemistry and had me laughing throughout the movie. The plot is intriguing, the visuals are vibrant and the soundtrack is fantastic. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes a good mystery and a good laugh.
  2. popstarPopstar– I give this movie a 3 out of 5 for knowing how to make you laugh without knowing its limits. This mockumentary is the silly kind of funny that you can not stop yourself from laughing at. While going too far at times, I enjoyed this film and the many cameos it contained. I recommend this movie to anyone who does not want to think too hard to enjoy a comedy.
  3. central_intelligence_ver2Central Intelligence– I give this movie a 3 out of 5 due to its great humor and character chemistry. The plot of this movie is a little overplayed: someone in a government agency works with a random civilian to solve a hot shot case. But I believe Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson work very well together, and I highly recommend viewers to watch the bloopers at the end of this film. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes the agent-civilian type movie.
  4. ghostbusters_ver6Ghostbusters– I give this movie a 4 out of 5 because of its vivid visuals, great humor and all-star casting. The chemistry between the characters is clear since the cast has worked together for years on Saturday Night Live. This is a must see movie because it uses humor in all the right places without trying too hard to be funny. I recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a good ghost story but may not like the gore of a R-rated film.
