Popcorn bucket list: 10 must-see fall movies

(Continued)

9. "End of Watch" (Sept. 21)

I already consider this — the one film on this list I've actually seen — one of fall's best movies. David Ayer, who wrote 2001's "Training Day," directs "End of Watch," which hinges on a conceit with major cheese potential: Jake Gyllenhaal's character, a Los Angeles police officer, films everything he and his partner (Michael Pena) do, ostensibly for a filmmaking class. Ayer makes it work, bringing the full scope of a cop's life, from hours of boredom to seconds of terror, to the audience in an experience that's more intense than anything in recent memory.

10 "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2" (Nov. 16)

You know what the best thing about "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2" is? After this, there won't be any more "Twilight" films.
