So we are in September already and October is just around the corner so you know what that means right? I am here with my monthly 2007 movie guide! I have selected four films here that I feel might worth a look. One is a gut-wrenching drama that unfortunately many American families have had to deal with in today’s world. The second looks to be a fun action adventure that the whole family can enjoy. The third is a romantic drama and the fourth well all I have to say is Ben Stiller! So without further ado, let’s get started on the following films that will hit theaters this October!
