September's Top Picks

FILM
September is that month where summer simmers down and autumn creeps in. School starts, temperatures drop but there's always fun to be had. This film pick of ours comes out in the 2nd half of September. It looks magical and a little bit spooky, so perfect for the build up to Halloween.

The House With a Clock in Its Walls is a new adaptation, with the same name as, John Bellairs' 1970 novel for children. The premise surrounds an orphaned 10-year-old Lewis (Owen Vaccaro) who goes to live with his Uncle Jonathan (Jack Black). Together with friend Mrs. Zimmerman (Cate Blanchett), they embark on uncovering the secrets of this mysterious house. They protect their world from dark forces that are unleashed along the way.

A Netflix original film is coming this September. By now we've all heard of Stranger Things. Barb was an underrated character / fan favourite, who didn't get enough screen time! Well, there's a little hope, the actress who played Barb (Shannon Purser) is now starring in Sierra Burgess is a Loser. The most popular girl in high school and Sierra Burgess, the biggest loser, must pair up to win their crushes over. Barb lives on.

TV
This next pick hasn't got a certain release date yet. It could be September perhaps October now. All we know is that it's airing this autumn. The strange sounds you make to try and mimic this program's theme include: blowing raspberries, humming and whistling. Think trip to the dentists.
We're of course on about the 11th series of Dr WHO!

Jodie Whittaker - The First Female Dr Who

What we are sure about and absolutely love is the return of GBBO! The Great British Bake Off started again on the 28th August and will satisfy our TV taste-buds for a good slice of September. We can deal with Hollywood's harsh critiques but let's just hope Prue Leith doesn't slip up with the winner again.

Don't leave your cakes in the oven too long. The only burns we like are Noel's.

MUSIC
Drake dominates the charts these days. But there's a climber that may knock him off his top spot. Benny Blanco's 'Eastside' (with Halsey and Khalid) has climbed the trending chart. Perhaps it has what it takes to make number 1. This chilled tune by Blanco definitely has a hint of Ed Sheeran. Blanco has produced for him before and you can tell. Give it a listen!


Here are a few albums that're coming soon. These lot will definitely have a few catchy beats between them.

Troye Sivan - Bloom 31st Aug
