6 Flicks Picks for November 2019 Movie Release Schedule

Posted by Anthony Mango Friday, November 1, 2019
Welcome to another edition of 6 Flicks Picks, wherein I list all of the upcoming films that are scheduled to be released in the United States for the month which is about to begin and break down which ones I'll be watching in theaters, which ones I'll wait to rent at home, and which ones I'll be skipping out on entirely. After going through the list, I'll choose which six films stand out to me as the ones I want to see the most, even if there are more or less than six that interest me.

Note: The list below is based primarily off the expanded nationwide USA release dates on IMDB as well as some other random outlets if possible, so some information may be different. If I am missing some of the limited releases or the dates conflict in some fashion, please let me know in the comments below and any adjustments and corrections will be made!

Without further ado, another new month means another new set of films, so what's coming soon to theaters in November 2019?

Which films make the cut?

Honorable Mentions — Charlie's Angels is a Netflix at best. Ford v Ferrari doesn't make the cut because I'm not at all interested in racing or cars. Frozen II, I'm sure I'll see at some point, but not in theaters. The Good Liar, I'm waiting on reviews.

6. A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood — I was never the biggest fan of Mr. Rogers, but this seems like something we could all use right now.

5. 21 Bridges — Something about this film, whether it's the Russos and/or Boseman just makes me think it's worth a watch.

4. Knives Out — Big cast. Could be fun.

3. Doctor Sleep — I'm not even a big Shining fan like with the MCU or something, but this has me very intrigued.

2. The Irishman — It's Scorsese and with that cast. C'mon. Goodfellas is awesome.

1. Terminator: Dark Fate — This is going to be disgusting, but of course I'm going to see it. T2 is my favorite movie of all time. It's going to crap all over that, but I have to at least try to give it a chance.
