6 Must-Watch Upcoming Movies
Bearcast Media

With the fall season finally in gear and Thanksgiving break just around the corner, it's about time we prepare for the onslaught of entertainment being hurled out this year. There seems to be a lot in store so far, with a little something for all movie fans!

6. Moana

Though there's been a lot of controversial commentary regarding this movie, I must admit I'm rather excited to see this come out. There aren't too many animated movies covering the identity of Pacific Islanders, and with Ron Clements and John Musker behind production (also responsible for films including "The Little Mermaid" and "The Princess and the Frog"), I'm sure that "Moana" will be a pleasant treat this Thanksgiving!

5. Passengers

Anytime Jennifer Lawrence is in a movie, you know it's worth the watch! Along with huge names such as Keanu Reeves and Chris Pratt, this sci-fi romance covers the love story of Aurora (Lawrence) and Jim (Pratt) as they wake from hyper-sleep 90 years earlier than intended, as their spaceship encounters a malfunction. This film will be coming out in December.

4. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

As a J.K Rowling fan, I must admit that I am absolutely thrilled to see another one of her works out on the big screen! Not only is it a J.K Rowling piece, but it features actors including Colin Farrell and Eddie Redmayne, both of which are amazingly talented performers. After seeing Redmayne in "The Danish Girl", I've been dying for more, and I'm stoked to see what director David Yates has prepared, as he has some strong history with J.K Rowling's "Harry Potter" franchise (directed the fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth "Harry Potter" films). This movie is released November 18th.

3. Doctor Strange

Starring actors such as Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, the rising face to film Benedict Cumberbatch, there isn't anything that could keep me from running into the theater on November 4th with my "Sherlock" fan gear. Not only that, but it's the next on the list for the ongoing storm of Marvel movies, and my geek-side simply can't contain itself enough to wait it out. Thankfully, the movie comes out on a Friday!

2. Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

Now it may be a while until the final installment of the Resident Evil movies actually comes out (January 27th), but ever since I saw the trailer release in August, I've been eagerly awaiting the day that I see Milla Jovovich as Alice for the last time. The movies may not have been perfect, but they are exactly the type that ar wonderful for a group get-together. Even the trailer was a thrill to watch, which is why I am especially ecstatic to race to the premieres.

1. Underworld: Blood Wars

I have been waiting this since the last installment of Underworld for this moment. If there are two movie franchises that are worth the watch no matter what, it will be Resident Evil and Underworld. Kate Beckinsale looks stunning as Selene, and the trailer had me squealing in excitement. I've been obsessed with the storyline, and hearing of a new Underworld movie was like music to my ears. The release date is January 6th.

The history of photography is the recount of inventions, scientific discoveries and technical improvements that allowed human beings to capture an image on a photosensitive surface for the first time, using light and certain chemical elements that react with it.

Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

It's Important To Remind Yourself To Be Open-Minded And Embrace All Life Has To Offer

Why should you be open-minded when it is so easy to be close-minded?


Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
