Welcome back for another post 🙂
There are so many films that I always say I’m going to watch, but I never get round to it. But with the seasons changing, and the days getting darker, it’s the perfect time to watch all those films I’ve been meaning to get round to!
And with the UK going into lockdown, when I’m not at work or working on my blog I have endless hours to spend binge-watching shows or trying the many films Netflix have started adding to their site.
In general I tend to watch shows instead of films, but these are some choices I’ve been excited to watch for a while- so I’m excited to try them this November.
I love a good Hugh Grant or Julia Roberts 90s rom-com, and this is a classic! I noticed Netflix had recently added Notting Hill to their many listsings, and so I’m excited to give this one a go.
Following the story of a British bookseller (Hugh Grant) who falls in love with a high-profile American actress (Julia Roberts). With problems along the way, this film sounds like it will pack in just the right amount of romance, glamour, and light-hearted fun.
This film is a slightly less comedic or romantic choice, but I read this novel a while ago and since then I’ve been meaning to try out the film version. This film is about a young woman who is admitted to a mental hospital, and it follows all the people she meets along the way.
I found this book very powerful and I’m hoping the film will be an interesting insight into the mental health services of the past.
When Harry Met Sally
I’m fed up of hearing this film being cited as an 80s classic- and yet I’ve never watched it!
This film is about a short friendship between two college graduates, who then happen to meet again five years later and have to decide whether they still want to be friends- or something more. Filled with fate and cheesy 80s scenes, this sounds like the perfect cosy November watch.
Released in 2018, this is a more recent watch and I’d really like to give it a go. Following the life of Annie, a woman who is annoyed over her boyfriend’s obsession with a famous musician.
One night, she writes a negative comment on a blog, and after this her life takes an odd turn as the musician becomes part of her life. This sounds like the perfect light-hearted watch for this time of the year. With the current situation, I need some light escapism!
This is another 90s classic, and I’m super excited to try it! I love Dirty Dancing, and so I’m excited to see Patrick Swayze in another role. I also feel like I already know a lot about this film and its iconic pottery scene.
I think this film is currently on Netflix too, so this is a great time for me to catch up on my 90s cinema and find a new favourite!
Have you watched any of these films? Do you have any film recommendations for this season? Do you enjoy watching films?
Happy reading x
