Must See Movies Of The Week (Oct 3)

October has arrived and a new batch of movies are releasing for home entertainment. This week offers some good VOD choices and limited theatrical ones you must see. Here are the most see movies for the week of October 3 on Blu-ray/DVD, VOD and limited theatrically.

A GHOST STORY:

Oscar winner Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara star in this haunting tale (no pun intended) about love, life, loss and the meaning of existence. The film follows a white-sheeted ghost (for real) that follows his wife along her life journey after his passing (Affleck’s character). This is an obscure and eccentric film that is meant to drive conversation and push debate. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but it sure is interesting. It’s not the spookiest of flicks, but it is fairly suspenseful and mysterious. If you give this film a chance (you should should) there is a lot to be derived from the story. This film is best digested by watching and brining your personal interpretation to it.

MY TAKE:

This trailer has me very intrigued. It answers the question that frequently comes up when we think about the medical and technological advances, would you freeze your body if to preserve a longer future life? The Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence recent film Passengers sort of touched on that topic. The visuals looks crisp in this film, the topic is interesting and the plot looks compelling. I didn’t have this film on my radar, but this trailer certainly has me anticipating the release.
