5 movies to watch to get you in the mood for fall

It’s the season to chill!

Published

on

Okay, let’s admit it: Fall (or Autumn) is the best season ever. Who can’t resist that chill weather that makes us snuggle and cozy up in bed with warm drinks? Or walking around town wearing plaid, boots, and stylish coats? How about going a trip outdoors, hiking in the middle of woods turning to shades of red, orange, and gold?

To put it simply, fall is about finding comfort in transition. It’s loving every bit there is in change — in style and the weather. If you can’t feel it yet, here’s how to fall in love with the fall season once again. Get those thick, heavy blankets and watch this to get you in the mood:

When Harry Met Sally

Set in fall, When Harry Met Sally is a romantic comedy film for grown-ups, tackling — and celebrating — friendship between men and women, and how it’s an essential ingredient for love to succeed. In addition, it’s flaunting that 80s fashion, New York during autumn, and hair goals for every woman (which got us thinking how much hairspray did they use for it?).

Watch it on Amazon Prime.

Rushmore

A classic Wes Anderson film, Rushmore is a movie you can watch whatever stage you’re going through: When your world is falling apart, when your crush isn’t into you, or when you just want to raise your middle finger as a response to everything. Yes, this film has all that mood. Rushmore isn’t just about growing up, it’s about delving in the reality of life and adulthood.

Watch it on Hulu.

Coraline

When Pussycat Dolls sang the line “Be careful what you wish for ’cause you just might get it,” I felt that. And it’s obviously what Coraline felt in the film, Coraline. A stop-motion masterpiece, its complex animation and story will make you wonder if it’s a kids show at all. Coraline teaches us that perfection isn’t everything, and things aren’t always what they seem to be. It’s also a call to stop neglecting the people that matter, and urges you to spend more time with them.

Watch it on Amazon Prime.

Becoming Jane

Being pressured to marry a wealthy man she doesn’t love, we’ve all seen it in different films. However, Becoming Jane is inspired by the life of the Jane Austen, a revered British author who — in the story — chooses the path of writing and going after the person she loves. It’s certainly the romantic film you need to watch this fall, especially if you want to fall in love again.

Watch it on Amazon Prime.

Coco

Coco isn’t just a feel-good animated film that can move you, or another preview of Mexico’s rich culture. It’s a movie that reminds us of history, of knowing and remembering your family and those who came before us. It’s about keeping their memories alive, and passing down the legacies and traditions that made us who we are.

In addition, it’s set on Mexico’s holiday — Día de Muertos — where autumn is at its peak and the festival is rich in colors. To sum it up, Coco is a celebration of family and love told through rich visuals that’s definitely a treat to your heart and eyes.

Watch it on Netflix.

Bonus: Gilmore Girls

Gilmore Girls may not be a film, but it’s certainly a series worth watching to get you in the mood for fall — especially if you’re in the mood for binge-watching. Gilmore Girls is a relatable show tackling romance and life. It’s also filled with food porn and yummy treats, and of course, coffee.

Watch it on Netflix.

Netflix, WWE announces interactive film Escape The Undertaker

Premiering in October

Published

on

Since the release of Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, Netflix has invested more and more in interactive content. In fact, besides its growing library of interactive content, the company is also working on its own video games for the future. Amid the rise of interactive content, Netflix is also working on a new collaboration to bolster its library. Netflix and WWE are releasing an interactive movie featuring The Undertaker.

Escape The Undertaker is an interactive Halloween film from both WWE Studios and Netflix. As the title indicates, the film stars Mark Calloway, otherwise known for his in-ring persona The Undertaker. Viewers have to guide the members of The New Day, a faction consisting of WWE stars Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods, to… well, escape The Undertaker. The fearsome legend invited The New Day to his mansion. Unbeknownst to the trio, The Undertaker’s mansion is filled with traps which The New Day have to escape from.

WWE Studios is no stranger to cinematic experiences. Before the age of Netflix, WWE produced and released action and horror films featuring their superstars including Steve Austin, John Cena, and Kane. In recent history, the company’s more creative arm got a breath of fresh air with last year’s cinematic matches. Because of the pandemic, WWE held more cinematic matches to compensate for the pandemic’s limitations. Coincidentally, one of those matches also included The Undertaker’s final match before retiring.

Escape The Undertaker premiers on Netflix on October 5.

Inside, the projector comes installed with the Android-based Luna OS. The software offers good features for users including previewing different sources.
