Let’s watch a movie…

I have movie favorites for every single season. I love to watch new movies, but also find comfort in watching movies that give me a sense of comfort-familiarity. Here is a list of my absolute favorite movies to watch in the fall!

  • The Good Witch series on Hallmark
  • When Harry Met Sally
  • Baby Boom
  • Funny Farm
  • You’ve Got Mail
  • Practical Magic
  • Stepmom
  • Hocus Pocus
  • Halloweentown
  • Haunted Mansion
  • It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
  • Ghostbusters
  • Murphy’s Romance
  • Son In Law
  • Home for the Holidays
  • A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving
  • Haunted Honeymoon
  • What Lies Beneath (this one is a weird choice-I know).

These are all aesthetically pleasing to me during the season. I am also guilty of throwing in a Christmas movie, or three, every now and then. Sometimes, if I am doing some home projects or cleaning, I will turn these on to get inspired….it works every time.

They say that watching the same movies over and over bring a sense of comfort, familiarity, and predictability during times of uncertainty. I find this to be true-I think we could all use a little predictability these days.

So, slow down and enjoy some good cinema-therapy.
