As we approach the end of summer, you can feel Halloween creeping around the corner. This 2009 animated movie is the perfect introduction to the autumn season. The story follows a little girl, Coraline, who finds a secret passage to another world within her house. It’s a fun adventure with amazing visuals.
- The Color Purple
A classic from 1985. This movie stars Whoopi Goldberg and is based on the novel of the same name. The story follows Celie, a teenage African-American girl living in the southern United States in the 1900s. This is an eye-opening movie that will hit your heart about life in that time period.
- The Forger
This 2018 movie stars Josh Hutcherson, Alfred Molina, and Hayden Panettiere. Josh Hutcherson plays a teenage boy, Joshua, who is a talented artist and barely scraping by. He is introduced to a man that commissions him for forged artwork, pushing him into an art forgery scheme.

- Paul Blart: Mall Cop
The 2009 Kevin James movie is a favorite from my childhood. It is a goofy movie about a mall cop, who takes his job very seriously, taking on a group of skaters try to rob the mall. The movie includes themes of family, adding depth to Paul Blart as a character. It’s lighthearted fun, perfect for summer.
This is a film that reminds viewers that movies are art. The movie takes place entirely from a computer screen. The creativity utilized in this movie is outstanding.

If your health teacher did not show your class this documentary in school, you should watch it. The movie follows Morgan Spurlock as he embarks on a month long journey of eating fast food- primarily ordering off of the McDonalds menu. There is also a sequel also available on Tube if you are interested.

The Jaws series is a classic and needs little explanation. If you have been wanting to watch the series for the first time or take a trip down memory lane, now is the time to do it. As of today (August 8) the movies are in the “Leaving Soon” section of the website.
