It’s hard to believe the classic science-fiction film Blade Runner came out 35 years ago. Though it wasn’t a box office success, it created a whole new genre of movies: neo-noir cyberpunk. Its sequel, Blade Runner 2049, sees the return of Harrison Ford’s possible replicant, Deckard, but also adds a new character, K, played by Ryan Gosling. The movie explores a futuristic world that’s been ravaged by civilization and delves deep into the human soul, asking the question: What does it mean to be human?

There are lots of other great movies this month, including plenty of horror flicks like The Snowman just in time for Halloween.

There's also an emotionally powerful biopic that reveals the true story behind the dysfunctional family that created the Winnie the Pooh books.

Check out all the powerful movies coming in October — there's really something for everyone.
