What Should I Watch? Feel Good Movies

Do you ever find yourself sitting there after you’ve just wolfed down an entire pizza too lazy to get up and decide you want to just sit there and watch a movie but can’t think of anything to watch? Well I wanted to start a series of posts that recommend movies that you want based on what you’re in the mood for. I love that movies can make me feel a variety of emotions and let you experience things that you may not get to in real life and I want to show some of the best in my opinion to do that!

So let’s get started with our first What Should I Watch! Maybe you are you looking for something to put you in a good mood? Maybe you’re already in a good mood and want to keep that train going. Well these movies are a great place to start! These are the movies that after you’re done watching them you can’t help but feel like a million bucks with a smile from ear to ear!

1. Up 

This will start off probably depressing you a little but trust me it’s worth it. Up is one of those special movies that is a fun adventure with very very unlikely heroes, a geriatric man, a boy scout, a talking dog, and a large bird. The thing I love about this movie is that it’s inspiring and shows you that no matter who or where you are in life it’s never too late to start a new adventure. (Animated, Family)

2. The Princess Bride

This is one of those unique movies that you’ll watch and will never see another one like it, at least I have yet to. It’s pretty much your traditional fairy tale story except not. It’s full of some of the funniest dialogue and scenes I’ve ever seen, you’ll pretty much be laughing the entire time. It’s easily one of the most quotable movies of all time and when you see it you’ll know why! (Fantasy Comedy)

3. Chef

Chef is probably the least recognizable movie on this list. It is still a movie that I loved watching. It’s a very simple movie about a struggling chef, Carl Casper, just leaving everything behind to travel the country in a food truck, run with his family and friends. It’s really awesome seeing this family grow closer as Casper finds what it is he really loved about being a chef and creating food for people. (Drama, Comedy)

4. Love Actually

This movie is about as clichéd of a choice you’re going to find on this list. What can you say about Love Actually? It’s a collection of a bunch of feel good stories that give you a variety of perspectives on love. What really separates this from other romantic comedies is a lot of these characters and situations they’re put in are pretty relatable. It’s easy to see yourself in their shoes and believe me there’s something for everyone here. So when you see them happy it’s hard not to feel good yourself. (Romantic Comedy)

5. Guardians of the Galaxy

Last but not least is Guardians of the Galaxy! Now you’re probably wondering “what’s a superhero movie doing on this list?” I’ll tell you why this Marvel movie deserves a spot on this list. Guardians is different from the other Marvel movies in that it never takes itself too seriously its always lighthearted and fun. You can’t help but root and cheer for these misfit losers take on the evils of the galaxy and if that’s not enough the phenomenal soundtrack alone is enough to get you in good mood! (Comic Book, Action)
