by sheknows

Summer movies are screeching to a halt, bringing both good news and bad news. The bad news is that all the big, exciting blockbusters like Wonder Woman, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, War for the Planet of the Apes and Spider-Man have come and gone. The good news? In just a couple of months, a very exciting slate of fall movies will begin battling for big awards like the Oscar. In the meantime, here are the best movies to go see in a movie theater, where you can cool off and enjoy a distraction from your hectic life. From a kids’ animated film about nutty squirrels to a tale of a cyberstalker played by Aubrey Plaza to a dark crime thriller set on a Native American reservation, there’s really something for everyone this month.
