Another month down, another ranked list. I saw 16 films released in November and, for the most part, it was a great month for movies. The only major release I missed that I wanted to catch was “Wonder,” especially after hearing such solid buzz. Still, November was filled with strong awards contenders so let’s get started with the list!
“Murder on the Orient Express,” dir. Kenneth Branagh
A lavish train ride unfolds into a stylish & suspenseful murder mystery. From the novel by Agatha Christie, “Murder on the Orient Express” tells the story of thirteen stranded strangers and one man’s race to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again.
There are two new wide release films opening this weekend as well as two movies opening in limited release, including Kenneth Branagh’s star-studded adaptation of “Murder on the Orient Express,” the Will Ferrell/Mark Wahlberg sequel, “Daddy’s Home 2,” Joachim Trier’s twisted Norwegian film, “Thelma,” and Martin McDonaugh’s festival favorite, “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” Let’s take a closer look into each film and see which ones are worth checking out.
