I feel bad about the choices of movies that families have in October. The only movie that seems decent and fun would be Goosebumps. Pan looks unnecessary and Jem and the Holograms looks horrible.

Origin story of Peter Pan and Captain Hook. This movie has been pushed back from being released this past summer. There are also people annoyed that white girl Rooney Mara is playing Tiger Lily.
Jem and the Holograms
