Top 5 movies to watch for this fall

Summer is almost over. The big releases are all but behind us. That means it's time to cast our eyes to what's hitting theatres as we charge into the Christmas season, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Submitted for your approval are the Top 5 movies we think are worth checking out this fall. Enjoy, or don't. Your call, bitches!

It: Chapter 2 (Sept 6)

Kind of a no-brainer. Who isn't excited for the second half of this Stephen King adaptation, featuring The Losers Club as adults, locked in battle with Pennywise the Dancing Clown. The presence of Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader and James McAvoy is icing on the cake.

Rambo: Last Blood (Sept 20)

The final chapter in the John Rambo saga? Likely. The last movie was action gold, and writer/star Sylvester Stallone promises an equally violent and bloody conclusion. We couldn't be happier, even if he looks kinda like the Marlboro Man.

Zombieland: Double Tap (Oct 11)

I acknowledge three films on this list are sequels, but fuck it -- they look awesome! And we have much love for the 2009 cult classic, so we're stoked for the follow up. The original cast is back, and things look just as much fun the second time around. Bring it on!

Midway (Nov 8)

No one was does disaster/spectacle quite like Roland Emmerich. So to have him tackle the real-life battle of Midway... it'll either be cinematic bliss or too much American patriotism... or both. Either way, we're gonna check it out.

Knives Out (Nov 27)

The Last Jedi's haters forget what a talented writer/director Rian Johnson is. That's why we're excited for his spin on the whodunit. The trailer looks quirky and funny, and who doesn't love a movie with a cast that includes Jamie Lee Curtis, Daniel Craig, and Chris Evans?

#CocktailHour: Slushtail

  Summer approaches, inspiring thoughts of sunshine, backyard parties, and having a tip and sip with friends.  With that in mind, I bring you this week sunny beverage. To make a slushtail, mix a can of frozen orange juice, a can of frozen lemonade (or limeade), a can of pineapple juice, a couple cups of black tea (or English Breakfast), and two cups of bourbon- such as Southern Comfort, in a pitcher.  When it's all nicely mixed, put it in the freezer until it's a nice slushy consistency. Scoop the slush into a cocktail glass, and pour in some Sprite or 7-Up.  Add a little umbrella for some frivolous fun, and a straw. Voila!  Ready to enjoy. This is a very refreshing drink.  The fruit juices, Sprite, and bourbon- when chilled makes for a great punch-like drink.  The bourbon doesn't overwhelm juices.   In fact, they are all nicely balanced in terms of flavors.  The sourness of the citrus fruits contrasts well with the slightly sweeter Southern Comfort.  It was refreshing enou

Marcus Flor vs Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

In film, there's nothing I enjoy more than passionate creativity. Compared to the sea of mediocrity surrounding it, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is practically overflowing with it. This animated movie is vibrant, kinetic, and extremely inventive with its art style. On top of all that, this is just a solid movie. It tells its story with sincerity and tact, always focusing on the important aspects of Miles' emotional journey. The script wastes no time on pointless scenes or moments, which also gives the film an energetic rhythm that draws you in. One of the other great aspects of this movie is its reinvention of the Spider-Man story. It's clever writing demonstrates a true understanding of the webslinger, and offers commentary on the current state of his movie adaptations. In the end, you get a film both Spidey fans and non-fans can enjoy. Above all other aspects, what I like most about Spider-Verse is how fun it is. It demonstrates quality animation and filmmaking doesn

Run, Bandit, Run: "Bandit: Bandit's Silver Angel" (1994)

  Tuesday rolls around with clear skies, clear lakes, and clear highways.  Along the long stretches Smokey can be found chasing the Bandit... and adventure follows close behind. After his uncle passes away, Bandit finds himself helping a beautiful widow keep their carnival afloat. But all is not as it seems with this carnival.  It hides a secret... a shiny, glittery secret that others would kill to keep for themselves... " Bandit: Bandit's Silver Angel " sees the 1990's TV movie series based on the original "Smokey and the Bandit" films come to a close.  And to be honest, it wasn't a bad send-off for the series. Brian Bloom once again brings a pleasant charm and playfulness to the character of Bandit.  While Donald O'Connor didn't get a lot of screen time, he brought quite a bit of humour to his character as Uncle Cyrus, and gave a solid impression that he's one of the few characters that could easily outwit Bandit.  Traci Lords in the role o
