Fall season is upon us and with that movies that are push for Oscar nominations.  Not all on my list may be worthy of a nomination, but here are my top movies to watch this Fall.

My Lucky Star - September 17, 2013
This romance comedy from China is a prequel to the popular Sophie's Revenge that came out in 2009.  Starring Leehom Wang and Ziyi Zhang who was amazing in The Grandmaster.




Prisoners - September 20, 2013
From my friends that saw an early screening of this, they have had nothing but good things to say about it.  It's out tomorrow starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Don Jon - September 27, 2013
Look for my review for Don Jon this coming week.  Not your usual movie, and not for every one considering the adult content, but well worth watching it.

Rush - September 13, 2013
I was able to catch this last night and really enjoyed it.  Look for my review next week as well.  Starring Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl as rival racers based on a true story directed by Ron Howard.

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatball 2 - September 27, 2013
I am catching an early screening of this on Saturday with my family.  I only recently saw the first one which you can catch the review here.


Gravity - October 4, 2013
There is no better trailer than Gravity when you have Sandra Bullock drifting off into deep space!

Machete Kills - October 11, 2013
I actually have never seen the first one but the studios have been really pushing this one.  Movies with cult followings must be good right?

Captain Phillips - October 11, 2013
I was able to catch an early screening of this and really enjoyed it.  Look for a review with in two weeks.  Oscar nomination for Tom Hanks?

Escape Plan - October 18, 2013
This ain't no Expendables movie.  But any time you get Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger together it's gonna be big.



Twelve Years a Slave - October 18, 2013
This has been getting a lot of early buzz and I can't wait to see it.  It's being screened first at the New York Film Fest as far as New York City.

Last Vegas - November 1, 2013
I saw this quite awhile ago and enjoyed it.  You can read my review here.

Thor: The Dark World - November 8, 2013
This is a no brainer as the mighty Marvel machine keeps rolling with the Thor sequel.

Which of the above movies do you plan to watch?  What movies did I leave out that you hope to see?
