Must See Movies: October

At Reel Steel we want to make sure you’re getting the most of your cinematic enthusiasm, so each month we put together our short list of some of the best new releases, from popcorn munching explosion fests to the often weird and wonderful.
Take a look at the trailers below and see what you think to this month’s recommendations!

American Honey

released Friday October 14th, 2016

A young woman from a troubled background joins a traveling magazine sales crew as they journey across the American midwest.
Finding her place within this group and in society, this is a character driven film that’s part road movie and part coming-of-age drama like nothing you’ll have ever seen before.


I, Daniel Blake
released Friday October 21st, 2016

Daniel Blake has worked as a carpenter most of his life in the north of England – then following an illness he finds himself needing state welfare for the first time in his life.
It’s during this that he crosses paths with single mother Katie and her two young children, together they find themselves caught up in the welfare bureaucracy of modern-day Britain.

This new film from Ken Loach brings his unmistakable commentary of the state we live in today.


Dr Strange
released Friday October 28th, 2016

When an accident leaves a surgeon unable to perform operations, he finds himself on a journey where he learns that there’s not only more to this reality than he could have ever imagined, but that his destiny may be in protecting the planet from supernatural enemies.

Here we have Benedict Cumberbatch as one of the lesser known Marvel heroes, in the final comic book superhero movie of a year which has seen highs and lows in this ever expanding genre, from Deadpool to X-Men, Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad.
