The theaters are filled with new and expected movies. I’ve been particularly impressed with the movie queues recently, which has sparked my interest in going to the theater more than usual. Streaming services have taken over the film industry, but going to the movies is a fantastic way to get out and have fun.

This popular new thriller presents an uncanny take on the luxury of life. The characters find themselves in classic daily life of the 1950s, where the husbands of each household undertake mysterious journeys each day and the wives find themselves staying at home or doing small communal activities. This movie has been on my watch list for a while, and I saw it recently. I was amazed how much I liked it because it didn’t get the best reviews. I will say the ending could have been better, but hopefully a sequel will be introduced.
A new drama starring Cate Blanchett is just what we needed. Tar follows a famous conductor, Lydia Tár, who has won numerous awards and accolades. The film catches her in the middle of a crucial symphony which she becomes extremely nervous about. His newfound nervousness and discomfort are aided by his adopted daughter, who becomes his rock. I was first intrigued by this movie description because a friend of mine from my hometown talked about seeing it. The positive reviews also intrigued me, leaving this movie at the top of my list of movies to watch.

The appeal of this film came through the lead actor, Harry Styles. The plot of the movie also made me more curious about what this movie entails. Another Harry Styles film set in the 1950s features the main character, Thomas, who falls in love with his teacher. I really like movies that are set in the early 1900s because of the imagery and the difference between then and now.
I saw the trailer for this movie in theaters, and I was immediately interested in what it was about. Until is based on a true story of Emmett Till, a boy who was lynched in the 1950s. The story follows his mother’s journey to seek fairness and defend her son. This movie looks powerful and interesting. I was on the edge of my seat at the cinema when I watched the trailer.
Movies are a great way to relax and take time for yourself. Going to the movies once in a while is a fun and exciting way to get out and participate in a fun activity with friends or alone. Since the pandemic, I miss going to the cinema and I try to go out and see a movie when I can. Go out to see a movie!
