We are coming to the end of a great year, but we are just at the start of what is shaping up to be an amazing fall movie season. There are so many great movies to choose from but these five movies are set to be some of the best movies not only of the fall but of the entire year. If you have free time during your busy lives, I truly hope you will check out these wide-ranging and hopefully memorable movies.
Chronicling the most famous stunt of legendary French high-wire artist Philippe Petit’s career, The Walk dramatically captures Petit’s 1974 tightrope walk between the two Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. With brilliant storytelling and beautiful computer generation that magnificently captures the aura of the World Trade Center in its heyday, The Walk will definitely be worth the watch, but just one thing to remember: don’t look down.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2
In the final installment of the worldwide box office phenomenon, the Hunger Games, Katniss attempts to finally destroy the Capitol and end the despotic reign of President Snow. If you have seen the other Hunger Games movies, this is bound to be an awesome conclusion to a riveting series. Even if you haven’t been following the Hunger Games series, I recommend watching this last movie because it will definitely have lots of thrilling action scenes, lots of Jennifer Lawrence, and lots of explosions that would make Michael Bay proud.

Filled with beautiful 2015 computer generation, nostalgic cameos from old characters, and a soccer ball R2-D2, “Star Wars: the Force Awakens” is going to be a truly awesome movie for all. I encourage you to celebrate the sci-fi series that has enthralled and fascinated new generations for the past forty years. And of course: may the force be with you.
