hi everyone :-)

just breath mentioned liking to watch happy sunny movies in another thread (i hope it's ok that i borrowed the phrase?) and i myself love to watch these kinds of movies-you know, the ones that cool down your anxiety and make you feel happy and optimistic inside no matter how many times you watch them? i'm always on the lookout for de-stressing/calming/happy inducing things to do, and would love to find some new movies to add to my list, so i thought i'd ask you guys: what movies make you feel good every time you see them?

a list of some of my favorites:

love, actually (my very favorite!)
four weddings and a funeral
about a boy
sleepless in seattle
fried green tomatoes
steel magnolias
amelie
sixteen candles
ferris bueller's day off
waking ned devine
circle of friends
bridge jones's diary (the 1st one more than the 2nd, and the movie can never top the book in my opinion..)

there's more, i'm sure, but that's what i can think of right now.

looking forward to hearing about all of your favorite feel good movies! :-)
love and hugs

this being human is a guest house.
every morning a new arrival-a joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awarenewss comes as an unexpected visitor.
welcome and entertain them all!
even if they're a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture,still, treat each guest honorably
he may be clearing you out for some new delight.

Cool :) I like every one of those movies, lol :) Right now I'm watching City of Industry. It is one of the few "gangster" movies I can stand :)
Take care and have a wonderful day! . . . Your Bro . . . Sam :)

The Dark Knight... and other superhero movies (but mostly anything with Batman!!!)

Cartoons... (Spirited Away, Kiki's Delivery Service, The Incredibles.... all sorts of Disney movies and Pixar movies)

I like Shrek... and I've watched the sequels, they're... okay...

Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Robin Hood: Men in Tights... (We're men... We're men in TIIIIIIIIIIIIGHTS. Funniest movie ever!) Spaceballs... Young Frankenstein...

Milo and Otis.... Men In Black...
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

im the odd one out- i dont enjoy chick flicks or obvious comedy- i like a good pyschological thriller, something that will make me think, have me on the edge of my seat, lots of drama and tension- i like suspense. "cheery" movies generally dont do it for me...um so i will list my fave POSITIVE movies and leave out all the "dark, brooding pyscho-dramatic" ones:

 

Stand By Me

Dead Poets Society

Napolean Dynamite

Eulogy

The Breakfast Club

Boys on the side

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure

Steel Magnolias

 

 

OK, its hard cos i reaaaaally like much darker stuff. i like the deeply serious stuff. and Trainspotting. wink

maz-how could i forget some of those? dead poets society is such a great movie. and boys on the side! and my hubby and i quote napoleon dynamite all the time. oh, and whenever something weird happens, i always say "strange things are afoot at the circle-k" lol i also love darker movies, but i thought a list of good cheery ones might be useful during times of anxiety and panic.

My all-time favorite movie is The Sound of Music, and it always makes me feel better when I watch it. Lots of other favorites, too, but that one tops the list.
