As someone who is pretty guilty of being a big movie goer, there are times even where I can’t keep up with the newest releases. I know that for most of you, midterms are finishing up, and this is the perfect way to reward yourselves. Here’s to indulging you all in the latest, most buzz worthy list of movies to watch.
Black Panther 2 (11.11.22)
I know I’m not alone when I say that this has been anticipated for the longest time. Being a fan of the first movie has made the wait for the second excruciating. Although I’m not a huge marvel fan, in the sense that I don’t keep up with the whole cinematic universe, I do allow myself to follow the hype which is why I know so many of you are probably also looking forward to the movie! With Chadwick Boseman’s passing, the movie has decided to focus more on his family, and the rising threat of the Atlantians. Gear up for it!
Prey for the Devil (10.28.22)
Are you a fan of horror? Personally, I would never be invested in these types of stories, but I know a lot of you out there crave the terrifying atmosphere and spooky vibes especially with Halloween right around the corner! Take your friends, families, and loved ones to the theaters and watch Pray for the Devil.
Puss in Boots: The Last Wish (12.21.22)
Okay—hear me out. This might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but we all love the nostalgic feels these animated films bring right? The stakes are even higher on this one, with his 9 lives on the line, the cat must journey to find the remaining last wish.
Armageddon Time (10.28.22)
From what I’ve seen, this was not as hyped as the other movies. I honestly didn’t even know that it was coming out next month, but my girl Anne Hathaway is starring in it so you know I’m about to give you guys the scoop! Not a lot of details have been released yet, but the premise centers around the 1980’s, exploring themes of family, racism, and the American Dream through the eyes of a young boy (Armageddon Time | Wild Bunch, n.d.).
Avatar 2 (12.22.22)
If you’re like me then you probably don’t have any recollection of the first movie—I mean, it’s been more than a decade already! All I remembered was that it had a crazy budget and the world-building was insanely atmospheric. So, here’s a recap for all of you that need it. Jake Sully, played by Sam Worthington, heads on a mission to the planet of Pandora, using the blue “avatar” figure sponsored by the military. In the alien world, he meets a group of beings called the Na’vi. Long story short, their environment is in danger and after falling in love with Neytiri (Zoe Saldaña), he realizes that some sacrifices must be made. In the new movie, (spoiler alert!) Jake and Neytiri have created a family together, but new threats arise to break them apart and destroy the hope they had exploring their lives on Pandora (Avatar: The Way of Life, 2022).

Mubassira – I think I’d probably only be interested in seeing Black Panther 2 among the group you shared, but have to say I loved your summaries and your crisp writing and analysis! Great blog and I look forward to reading more of them ahead.
Thank you so much!
