sept-14-must-see-movies

I missed August. Completely. My apologies. There were a ton of good movies that came out last month… and then pride happened… and then ya. Whoops. Moving right along though… Summer is over in just over two weeks and school just started which means it’s September and a whole set of new movies are coming out this month.

There’s actually a ton of movies that look good this month that could have just as easily been on this list but here are the films I’ll be trying to see this month. Some thriller, some comedy, some romance… It’s a nice mix this month.

Check out my picks for must-see movies this month below…

Caleb explained after Frankie’s nominations the thought of sending him home instead of Victoria crossed his mind. Ofcourse the thought crossed his mind. When casting a vote to evict all options should be weighed. But you don’t tell that person! Especially when you’re in an alliance and have a final four deal with them!

Leighton Meester Debuts New Track ‘Heartstrings’

In: Donovan, Music

Leighton Meester assisted Cobra Starship on their Top 10 hit “Good Girls Go Bad” back in 2009. Naturally, the former Gossip Girl actress attempted a solo recording career after that. Sadly, none of the tracks including a duet with Robin Thicke nor songs on the Country Strong soundtrack fared well on the charts.

The 28-year-old is surprisingly launching another attempt at music stardom. She shared a new track titled “Heartstrings” with Billboard. It’s off her forthcoming debut LP scheduled to be released on October 28.

“‘Heartstrings’ speaks to vibe and encompasses a lot of the themes of the rest of the album,” Meester tells Billboard. “It’s been a long time coming and I’m very excited to finally release it.”

Meester was most recently seen on Broadway in a well-received stint in Of Mice and Men. Give her latest a listen below. It’s in the vein of artists such as Tori Amos and Joni Mitchell.

alicia-keys-we-are-here

As she prepares to give birth to her second child, Alicia Keys couldn’t help but think about the world she’s bringing her baby into. The 33-year-old singer decided to put her thoughts in a brand new track titled, “We Are Here.” She talks about Gaza, Israel, Nigeria and other conflicts in the world today.

Whether this introspective ballad is the signaling of Keys’ new era, who knows? I’m thinking most likely not and it’s just a stand-alone single. Check out the accompanying music video below which Alicia premiered on Facebook this week, along with a detailed description about what inspired the reflective track.

michael-c-hall-hedwig-and-the-angry-inch

Andrew Rannells is currently playing the titular transgender rocker in the Broadway revival. Production tapped the Book of Mormon star for a limited eight-week engagement after Neil Patrick Harris left after winning a Tony. Beginning October 16, Micheal C. Hall takes over until January 2015.

Production was reportedly to end after Harris’ engagement. It appears box office receipts are still doing well after his departure. The cache of winning all those Tonys is probably helping propel ticket sales.

In case you’re wondering if Hall has the chops for the role, he does. The former Dexter actor, in the past, has taken over roles in other Broadway productions including Chicago and Cabaret. For the latter, he sported some serious amounts of makeup. Check him out playing the Master of Ceremonies in Cabaret below, along with a vocal performance from the HBO series, Six Feet Under.
