As promised on last Wednesday’s How to Survive Down Time post, here’s a list of movies and TV shows that got me into a good mood after watching them. Stories that would make me cry, laugh and feeling cheerful and/or hopeful. There are movies from different genres, not just comedies but I guess all of them made me laugh and laugh and cry at the same time. I literally went through over 1 500 movies that I’ve watched to hand pick the following list of 30. I’m just going to write a couple of words about them, keeping it short and sweet since it is a pretty long list. I hope you enjoy. Okay, here we go.
1. Going in Style (2017)
It’s a simple movie with a simple plot but includes three charismatic actors to deliver some surprisingly funny scenes. Of course, they kept it classy. Kinda makes you miss your grandpa.
2. Paul (2011)
Paul is the ET for me as ET was for most people. I didn’t like ET, but I very much liked Paul. 😛
3. A Dog’s Purpose (2017)
It’s really a nice thought that dogs get to reincarnate from life to life to brighten different people’s lives. Hilarious narration with cheesy tear-jerker moments for all dog-lovers out there.
4. Captain Fantastic (2016)
Weirdly satisfying and fill you up with wonder about living off the grid. Not that I would ever be able to unless I was raised by a dad like Captain Fantastic.
5. Swiss Army Man (2016)
There’s a reason why the indie movie circle periodically delivers us gems because I can’t imagine any big movie studio giving this crazy idea a go. Thank God for indie flicks, Swiss Army Man will be one of the best movies you’ve ever seen. I wrote a mini review about it earlier, read more here.
