I recently curated and edited Limité‘s 2014 Fall Film Guide. Get a taste below, then click here for the full guide.
Fall is nearly upon us, so we’re turning our sights towards some of the season’s hottest releases—from what are sure to be big budget crowd pleasers (the latest in the Hunger Games and Hobbit franchises), art house favorites (Whiplash, Mr. Turner), and sure-fire Oscar bait (Birdman, Foxcatcher). Mark your calendars for these fall flicks.
Labor Day has passed, and now it’s time to consider this year’s crop of what will inevitably be considered some of Oscar’s biggest fodder. It’s no surprise that when it comes to the Academy Awards, the movies that are most likely to be honored with a nomination are those that are released towards the end of the year. Some of this year’s frontrunners appear to be Argo, Django Unchained, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Hyde Park on Hudson, Life of Pi, Lincoln, The Master, Les Misérables, Silver Linings Playbook, Wreck-It Ralph, and Zero Dark Thirty. Of course, there’s plenty of other flicks to look forward to, spanning all genres and audience interests.

Looking at this fall’s movie releases, it doesn’t take much to get excited. Some of today’s best and brightest filmmakers have their latest works hitting theaters, many of which primed for Oscar consideration and box office dominance. I mean, look at this list. LOOK AT IT!
