Watch | Read | Listen {November 2015}

Happy November! I'm in love with the Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer. The first in the series, Cinder, is one of my top favorites. I've been waiting all year for the final book, Winter, and it's finally coming out on November 10th! My heart is jumping up and down in excitement. I actually only have the first book, so I'm hoping to get the box set when it comes out. 


A cryptic message from James Bond's (Daniel Craig) past sends him on a trail to a sinister organization. While M (Ralph Fiennes) battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind Spectre. Also starring Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, and Christoph Waltz. {Watch the trailer.} It's a tradition to see the latest Bond movie with my brothers and dad, so I'm looking forward it. (November 6)

Man Up
Nancy (Lake Bell) is mistaken for Jack's (Simon Pegg) blind date under the Waterloo Station, but she decides to take fate into her own hands and go with it. What could possibly be wrong? It's an honest, heart-warming romantic comedy about taking chances. {Watch the trailer.} I freaking love Simon Pegg so much! (November 13)

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt 2
Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) realizes the stakes are no longer just for survival, so she teams up with her closest friends Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), Gale (Liam Hemsworth), and Finnick (Sam Claflin) for the ultimate mission. They leave District 13 to liberate the citizens of war-torn Panem and to assassinate President Snow (Donald Sutherland). {Watch the trailer.} YASSSS! (November 20)

The Good Dinosaur
What is the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet and dinosaurs never became extinct? An Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend and while traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears. {Watch the trailer.} This looks so adorable! (November 25)

The Danish Girl
The remarkable love story of Lili Elbe (Eddie Redmayne) and Gerda Wegener (Alicia Vikander). Their marriage and work evolves as they navigate Lili's groundbreaking journey as a transgender pioneer. {Watch the trailer.} This looks absolutely incredible and I would be surprised if Redmayne isn't an Oscar contender. (November 27)
