By Movieguide® Editorial Staff

‘Tis the season for pumpkin spice, sweater weather, scarves, boots, and cozy movies. Now that it’s officially autumn, we’ve compiled a list of movies that are in theaters and on DVD, complete with rewatchable classics that soothe the soul. Happy watching…

  1. AD ASTRA (Now in Theaters)

AD ASTRA follows astronaut Roy McBride as he is missioned to uncover the truth behind his father’s disappearance 30 years ago that’s now threatening the safety of the solar system. AD ASTRA captures the audience from beginning to end and contains many strong positive Christian, biblical elements, but has some foul language and some violence. MOVIEGUIDE®, therefore, advises caution, depending on the viewer’s sensitivity to such material.

Can lightning strike twice? Can Nora Ephron re-capture the magic she formed with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan in SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE? The answer is a resounding yes. Very attractive, effortlessly acted, wittily executed, and more about earning someone’s trust than romance, YOU’VE GOT MAIL is an excellent re-make of the Jimmy Stewart movie THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER.
