It’s here! The month of ghosts, goblins, and grande pumpkin spice lattes is finally upon us. Show your spooky spirit by watching some caped capers, daring deeds, and mysterious missions.
NEW THIS WEEK
Bats may be a scary thing to encounter in real life, but only Gotham City’s criminals need fear the Batman. Michael Keaton’s caped crusader is a staunch and severe instrument of justice, perfectly opposed by the maniacal Joker (Jack Nicholson).
Hit that snooze alarm, because the dark knight isn’t finished yet. Batman Returns for double the trouble as he faces off with the viciously vengeful Penguin and enchanting, enigmatic Catwoman.
Two of action’s action-iest heroes meet one inescapable prison in the ultimate cage match. Watch Stallone and Schwarzenegger team up to execute the Escape Plan of a lifetime.
Special Agent Gracie Hart (Sandra Bullock) is great at what she does, but what she does doesn’t include makeup, heels, or tiaras. Until now. If she can master the power of pageantry she’ll take down one of the FBI’s most wanted terrorists, and maybe even be crowned Miss Congeniality.
STATE OF THE ART
In pursuit of justice, expression, or recognition, the talented artists in these documentaries can’t help but show their true colors.

Before it was on TV screens, movie sets, and world stages, krump was an underground dance phenomenon held up by a devoted subculture of passionate young artists. Rize is a celebration of their work and the dance form’s evolution.
He’s not the biggest, the scariest, or the most muscular, but when it comes to bending steel he’s the strongest around. Strongman is the story of one man with one talent, and the highs and lows of a life spent honing shining it to perfection.
