We all have days when we feel more inclined to watch a certain type of movie based on our mood. I know I have days when I only want to cry and sob whereas others I just wanna laugh and have a good time. Here are my 5 go-to movies depending on my mood
of the day.
He’s just not that in to you is one of my all time favourite movies. It’s your typical go-to romantic comedy that makes you wish life was more like in a movie and that guy was really chasing you through the airport or knocking on your door saying that he loves you. I haven’t watched in a while but there was a phase I would watch it almost every week.
If you’re in the mood for an oldie but goodie, I would go for The Godfather. I watched it for the first time a few years ago, when a friend borrowed me all three of them, and I had three pleasant friday nights. Marlon Brando was amazing and reminds me a little bit of my family when it comes to the prominent chin.
For those blue days when you’re feeling like nothing is going to work, Forrest Gump gives you the strength you need to overcome whatever’s putting you down and the waterworks you’ve been wishing. It’s a heart felt story that makes you wish you held Forrest in your arms. He’s just a powerful character.
Feeling like having a good laugh and reminiscing:
American Pie 2 is just the ultimate classic for a good laugh. Sure, it can be exaggerated but it can also make you feel like you relate to what they are going through. The insecurities, the friendships, the relationships. There’s something kind of earthy in it along with some good comedy.
Feeling like I need a reality check:
I’m completely drawn to époque films. Dated in the 1950’s, 60’s, 70’s or 80’s. They just make me wish I would haven been there to witness all those changes and movements coming to life. The Help is a heartbreaking movie that can still be very current. Right now, the subject of the news in the United States makes you feel like you are in one of these movies where people are treated and judged by their color. There’s nothing more powerful than the truth.
