With the fall season just beginning, the long summer days are starting to turn to long, cool fall evenings. Fall not only means Halloween, Thanksgiving, and endless hours of leaf raking for most of us, it also means Fall movie season has arrived. Here are my top 10 films to see this Fall movie season:
Denzel Washington is back in what many are calling his best role since Training Day. Washington plays an ex-military badass who now works at a hardware store. After he crosses path’s with Chloe Grace Moretz character, he butts heads with some of the most dangerous people in Boston. This is the second time Washington has teamed up with director Antoine Fuqua. Washington won the Best Actor Oscar for their film Training Day 12 years ago. Fuqua, most recently directed Olympus Has Fallen, a pretty damn good action film, last year.
Director Bennett Miller returns with his third film. Capote and Moneyball were both hits with critics and audiences, and Foxcatcher looks to be no different. Starring an unrecognizable Steve Carell, the film is psychological, true-crime drama that looks at Jon du Pont’s large ego and his quest to buy as much of America’s wrestling scene as possible. Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum also co-star in the film, which is garnering Carrell a lot of Oscar talk.
A slow September rolls on but Kevin Smith certainly gave us something, um…different to talk about thanks to Tusk. It’s an age-old tale of a man and walrus as only he can tell it. But does it only work for Smith aficionados? We will dive in. (Does that count as a walrus pun? I’m not even sure.)
Plus, we get a box office report from Kevin a mini-spoiler session from Tom as recaps Walk Among the Tombstones and The Maze Runner.

One of my favorite things about sports in general is the history of the games. The undeniable legends who stood taller than everyone else, the greatest plays in history, the indelible moments that come to define legacies.
Like any institution, often these sports attempt to embrace their past, encouraging people and the participants of their sports to learn the history of the game. The name Jackie Robinson may not exactly be a household name, but you would likely be able to find a large portion of the population who is at least familiar with the name. MLB embraces Robinson’s contributions and has an annual Jackie Robinson Day on April 15, during which all MLB players wear the number 42, the number Jackie wore when he broke the color barrier. Some fans like it, some find it annoying. Whether or not you enjoy it, it’s hard to deny that MLB has gotten their point across.
