The weather is getting chilly and the days are becoming drizzly with rain. On a weekend like this, with no plans set, what better thing would there be to do than have a movie day?
Here are 5 movies I love watching on any kind of day, but they definitely fit perfectly with a dreary day.
Singin’ In The Rain (1953)
Why You Should Watch It: Well, the title of this movie does fit with the theme, here! Also, what’s a movie marathon day without some kind of classic/musical combination? This movie is one of my all-time faves and with it being over 60 years old, it definitely has stood the test of time!
Jerry Maguire (1996)
Why You Should Watch It: Younger Tom Cruise pre couch-jump, smooching Renee Zellweger and sharing scenes with the adorable kid from Stuart Little? I’m here for it. This movie is the perfect blend of comedy/drama and it has a killer soundtrack (just like all over movies directed by Cameron Crowe).
Reality Bites (1994)
Why You Should Watch It: I feel like anyone in their twenties who isn’t 100% sure about what they are doing with their life will appreciate this film. Winona Ryder and Ethan Hawke ooze chemistry and each character is so relatable, regardless of the fact that this movie is over 20 years old. Goes to show that times can change but emotions never do.
Beauty and the Beast (1994)
Why You Should Watch It: Disney. Isn’t that all the convincing you need? I am a huge Disney movie fan, and there are so many other movies I could have also chosen for this list. This is my personal favourite. The songs are broadway-level perfect and as an adult, I now realise how dark/dramatic this film is. A perfect movie to watch and forget about your age/responsibilties, even if only for a few hours.
Why You Should Watch It: I have watched this movie with women and men of all ages and everyone has laughed so hard that we were disappointed when the movie ended. It’s THAT funny. A modern classic comedy which is smart, relatable and just plain hilarious. I feel like women don’t have many comedies which are centred around female friendships rather than romance. I love that this movie kickstarted a new wave of female-centred comedies.
