Mid November Predictions

Since the disappointing results of the election on Tuesday, I’ve dove head first into these Oscar predictions. The contenders for the big awards are usually released in November, but I have a feeling this year’s winners will be coming out in December. But, still a lot of good movies hitting theaters in the comming weeks, with the new Harry Potter series starting and last week’s Doctor Strange, the box office is looking mighty healthy.
