Taking a break from all the thrillers and darkness, September also offers a heartwarming fantasy and adventure movie from no less than Disney. Pete’s Dragon features a boy who survived being stuck in the woods for six years because of the help of a dragon who eventually became his closest friend. Knowing Disney and the way they can spin things to become tearjerkers, this one should be a must-watch not just for kids but even for adults.

Here’s a drama true-to-life story of a pilot who saved the lives of his passengers from a close call aircraft accident.

Here’s a Filipino movie to refresh our palate! This love story is set in Barcelona and stars no less than Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo. Telling from the trailer, this movie is going to be painstaking yet truly touching.

Danielle Radcliffe will always be Harry Potter to us. But this incredible actor can’t forever be just that considering his brilliant talent in writing.
