Seriously though, October is stacked with a variety of films and animations to last the entire month.
Luckily, your favorite movie bloggers have been slavishly working on compiling a list of critical movies and animations for you to watch this October.
And without further delay, here are the essential October 2019 Movies, Series, and Animations to Watch out for on HBO, Netflix and in theaters.
1. Joker 2019
I’ll be honest when I first heard DC was making a Joker Movie I thought this might be the final nail on the DC Cinematic Universe’s grave.
But when I found out, Joaquin Phoenix was the star of the Joker Movie, my faith, and interest returned.
And now that The Joker has bagged the best film award at the Venice film festival. This film is now one of my most expected movies of 2019.
Catch Joker in theaters on October 4th, 2019.
2. Big Mouth Season 3

However, they’re not alone on this journey. Connie and Maurice (The Hormone monsters) have their back covered, well MOSTLY.
3. Peaky Blinders
I’ll confess, I haven’t seen a single episode of Peaky Blinders.
But hold your Pitchforks, and memes, because it’s not like I think the show is terrible or anything. I’ve just not had any time to check it out (yet).
I do however have friends who tell me the show is terrific And a (And they might kill me if I don’t include it on this list). Who knows, this season I might finally give in and check it out.
