Fall Movies: Opening October 6, 2017

Your main choice this weekend is between Ryan Gosling in Blade Runner 2049 or Idris Elba in The Mountain Between Us. You could also make it a double feature. Blade Runner 2049 is getting good reviews as both a sequel and as a story that stands up on its own. The Mountain Between Us had great reviews for Kate Winslet and Idris Elba, but the lacks something when it comes to the story.
