November Movie Preview

November is a very exciting month for movies. I am most looking forward to seeing Ender's Game and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
The 2013 Oscar Season is not over yet. Some quality films are in the mix - Homefront and Philomena (expanding on Friday, November 29). As it gets closer to the Oscar telecast on March 2, 2014, I will post more of my Oscar nominee predictions.

What films are you planning on to see in November?


  1. We were on the same wavelength today with November movies!!

  2. I just read Ender's Game and loved it, and of course I love the Hunger Games trilogy. Can't wait for the movie. Happy Halloween, Livia!

  3. Enders Game and Catching Fire are no brainers for me. I'd also like to see Thor, Book Thief and Frozen.

  4. Enders Game looked pretty good in the theater. Catching Fire has my interest, too. I'm most interested in the Hobbit. I guess that's December?

  5. Of these movies, I'm only interested in seeing Frozen. Been looking forward to that movie for a long time! I'll probably even go see it in theaters, which is such a rarity for me...

  6. Last Vegas may be the only one of these I see. I love the actors!
