Welcome October!

October 1st is the beginning of the Halloween season and The Countdown to Halloween. I plan on posting a bunch of random monster and Halloween stuff. I hope everyone can find at least a little something to keep them entertained during the month.

To start off, here's a list of the Movies@Main shown FREE at the Akron-Summit County Main Library every Thursday night in October. If you're in the Akron area, stop by and see a flick.

October 3 - IRON MAN 3
After the world believes he is dead, Tony Stark must use all his abilities to find and destroy a new enemy! Starring Robert Downey, Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and Guy Pearce. Rated PG-13. 135 min

October 10 - OBLIVION
Jack Harper is a drone repairman stationed on a deserted, nearly ruined 2077 Earth. When he rescues a stranger from a downed spacecraft, her arrival triggers a nonstop chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows! Starring Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman and Melissa Leo. Rated PG-13. 125 min

A fanatical scientist conducts genetic experiments on a remote island in the South Seas, much to the fear and disgust of a shipwrecked sailor who finds himself trapped there. Based on the H. G. Wells’ novel The Island of Dr. Moreau. Starring Charles Laughton and Bela Lugosi. 70 min. Shown in association with Akron Film + Pixel. Introduction and discussion afterward.

Who ya gonna call? Three wacky scientists become paranormal exterminators. An 80’s classic starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis. Rated PG. 105 min

October 31 - THE GOONIES
A mysterious treasure map leads a group of kids on a spectacular adventure to find a long-lost fortune. An 80’s favorite starring Sean Astin, Josh Brolin and Corey Feldman. Rated PG. 114 min.
Added attraction: A classic Little Rascals comedy short. 10 min

In my opinion either of the two movies prior to Halloween are more worthy of the Primo spot than Goonies. I'd give the edge to Island of Lost Souls.
