Watch | Read | Listen {November 2016}

It's November, which always means wonderful new movies and books are coming! I'm particularly excited for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them because I'm a Potterhead and a fan of Eddie Redmayne. I NEED to get my hands on the book Heartless by Marissa Meyer because it's a dark Alice in Wonderland retelling. What are you excited about?

Here's a peek of what's hitting theaters and bookstores...


Doctor Strange 
Doctor Strange follows the story of a neurosurgeon Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) who, after a horrible car accident, discovers a hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions. Also starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, and Tilda Swinton. Anything with Benedict Cumberbatch and I'm in! It looks incredible! (November 4)

Hacksaw Ridge
The extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield), who saved 75 men in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, all without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon because while he believed the war was justified he also thought killing was wrong. This movie looks so powerful and thought-provoking. (November 4)

When mysterious spacecrafts touch down around the world, an elite team lead by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams) are brought together to investigate. Banks and the team (Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker) race against time for answers, and to find them she will take a chance that could threaten her life and possibly all of humanity. This movie is both terrifying and exciting. What's in those spacecrafts?! I have to know! (November 11)

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
We're returning to the Wizarding World long before Harry Potter's story. It's 1926 in New York City as Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) has just completed a global excursion to find and document extraordinary magical creatures. His stopover in New York is supposed to be without incident were it not for a No-Maj named Jacob (Dan Fogler), a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of said fantastic beasts. I CANNOT FREAKING WAIT! (November 18)

The story follows Moana (voiced by Auili'i Cravalho), an adventurous teenager who, with the help from demigod Maui (Dwayne Johnson), sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and save her people. I will never ever be too old for Disney movies! (November 23)
