    10 Movies Coming Out In November You'll Be More Excited For Than The Holidays

    Your aunt judging your life choices? No thanks. Shirtless Chris Hemsworth? Yes, please.

    So holiday season is officially upon us...which means some of us are going to need an excuse to be busy as heck to avoid people.

    "Sorry Aunt Jane I can't come to Thanksgiving this year because I...uh...don't want to?"

    So I've taken the liberty of rounding up 10 movies that you simply won't want to miss, even if you enjoy spending time with your family!


    Hey, take Aunt Jane with you, instead!

    1. A Bad Moms Christmas (Nov. 1, 2017)

    Starting the Thanksgiving season off right...with a Christmas movie! Mila Kunis, Kathryn Hahn, and Kristen Bell are back at it in this sequel, this time as "bad" moms dealing with the endless stress of the holiday season. After deciding to take it easy this year, all three of the ladies are surprised with visits from THEIR moms, whose old-fashioned ways are threatening their good time. At the end of the day, these badass Moms just seek to "put the ass back in Christmas."

    2. My Friend Dahmer (Nov. 3, 2017)

    Taking a complete shift from the previous film, this one follows the life of infamous serial killer, Jeffrey Dahmer, as experienced by someone who actually KNEW him. Based on a graphic novel of the same name written by Derf Backderf, the story is told through the lens of those close to Dahmer, who watched the early signs of the young man's mental instability. Filled with what appear to be promising performances from a host of young actors, this one will unfortunately be in limited release, at least for the time being.

    3. Thor: Ragnarok (Nov. 3, 2017)

    I was lucky enough to get to see an early screening of this one and I CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH how unbelievably ~unexpected~ this movie is. You almost forget about all of the cool action and insane special effects because of how many great, hilarious one-liners there are. The film also includes what my fiancé (who's a huge fan of Marvel, and whom I told I would give exactly ONE quote in this write-up) called "the best use of a Led Zeppelin song since Wayne's World" there's also that.

    4. Last Flag Flying (Nov. 3, 2017)

    If you're looking for a fantastic cast and touching story, this one's definitely for you. Thirty years after serving in Vietnam together, three men reunite to aid each other in a difficult task: burying one of their young sons, who died in Iraq. Based on a novel by Darryl Ponicsan, there's been a ton of early praise around this film, some saying it appears to be Steve Carell's best performance yet. Just make sure to bring enough tissues for a crowd, even if you go by yourself.

    5. Lady Bird (Nov. 3, 2017)

    From the trailer, Lady Bird looks like a true coming-of-age indie gem. Written and directed by Greta Gerwig, this is the seemingly simple story of a strong-willed teenage girl and her equally opinionated mother. Rebelling against her Catholic school upbringing, self-named Lady Bird wants out of California to go live in New York (or at least Connecticut or New Hampshire). Also, the trailer gave me a strong desire to call my mother and tell her I love her.

    6. Murder on the Orient Express (Nov. 10, 2017)

    20th Century Fox / Via

    There are so many stars in this one, we're going to have to make another galaxy: Kenneth Branagh, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Derek Jacobi, Leslie Odom Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, and Daisy Ridley...all in one place. Based on a 1934 novel by Agatha Christie, this is the FOURTH remake of this tale. Following Christine's multi-story hero Hercule Poirot, the title does much of the plot explanation for us. It's a classic whodunit with enough star power to power that train on its own.

    7. Daddy's Home 2 (Nov. 10, 2017)

    In a strange timing-miracle, we have some Christmas-themed dads to go with our Bad Moms! In a similar vain to A Bad Moms Christmas, the dads OF the dads in the original film are coming to town, and it helps to highlight the VAST differences in Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg's upbringing. Filled with slapstick comedy, puns, and lots of dad jokes, this one is sure to be a light-hearted good time.

    8. Justice League (Nov. 17, 2017)

    Two words: WONDER. WOMAN. Honestly, does anyone else matter? (No.) Anyway, the trailer plays out like a hard rock music video and, besides baby girl, all our favorite, iconic DC heroes are back to kick some major butt. We've got Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash...but will we see Superman's return? Only time (and a ticket to the movie) will tell.

    9. Coco (Nov. 22, 2017)

    Disney Studios / Via

    November has become the sweet spot for Disney and Pixar releases, and this year is no exception. Coco follows the story of a young boy named Miguel who is in love with music, despite his family's century-old "ban" on music. After a sequence of strange circumstances, Miguel finds himself in the surprisingly ~lively~ "land of the dead." This one looks incredibly sweet, vibrant, and fun. Plus, we'll also be treated to a new Frozen-themed short before the film, Olaf's Frozen Adventure, so it's really a two for one cuteness deal!

    10. Call Me By Your Name (Nov. 24, 2017)

    Sony Classics / Via

    Now, you may have already heard about this one as it's had A LOT of positive reviews coming out of the festival circuit. Call Me By Your Name is a gorgeous, sweeping coming-of-age love story centered on a young man, Elios (Timothée Chalamet) and a doctoral student, Oliver (Armie Hammer), who is interning with his father. There has been an over-abundance of Oscar talk for this one, with both the performances of Hammer and Chalamet appearing to be both realistic and deeply moving. Honestly, the trailer alone will make you ~feel all the things~.
