Most Anticipated Movies of Fall 2015: October

 

The October slate of movies this year stirs up a distinct feeling in me: Hesitation. There are plenty of films that I hope will blow me away, but, as I outline below, I have my reservations about many of them.

 

Note: for the sake of this series of articles, the “Fall movie season” refers to the span of time beginning with the first weekend after Labor Day weekend and ending with the last weekend in December.

Lists — Ranking the Quentin Tarantino Filmography

Quentin Tarantino is a master of his craft, and my favorite director working in Hollywood today. Tarantino has created some of the most original, well thought out, wonderfully scripted films in recent memory. He pulls me into his films in a way that no other director can, and he is my screenwriting idol. With each new film from him, I am expecting a flop, simply because I am surprised that he has never let me down. He is the only filmmaker that has impressed me with every single film in his filmography.
