Give your stressed-out mind a break by watching these hilarious and exciting movies. Movies like these mentioned below will really relax in all sorts ways in the Pandemic.
Moonrise Kingdom (20012) will bring about all of those feelings you had as a young kid when you went camping for the first time (or just went on adventures in your backyard). But, more importantly, it will remind you of the first time you fell in love. If love isn’t your thing , then just let the absolutely gorgeous symmetry of Wes Anderson’s cinematography to lure you into a tranquil stupor.
Everybody Wants Some!!
Everybody Wants Some!!(2016) is about a team of baseball players making their way through the first days of their college, and the freshman who’s getting a feel for the team, and girls, along the way. If you look back at your first day hanging out with a new group of friends fondly, this movie will hit you right in the feels fam.
Ferris Bueller’s Day-off
What’s more fun than a cheeky high school senior faking a sick day to go on an adventure with best friends? Absolutely nothing, that’s what. The namesake of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986) is always, somehow, one step ahead of his pesky principal, and you just can’t help but root for him. This is also coming from a John Hughes fanatic—for some reason, quirky 80s movies just get me. If you’re really having a bad day and you don’t want to see anything depressing, feel free to skip the majority of Cameron’s scenes.
Vote For Pedro/Napoleon Dynamite
Stuff your pockets full of tater tots, grab a quesadilla, and get ready to rest easy watching the adorably geeky Napoleon Dynamite(2004) wade his way through love, friendship, and feeding his pet llama, Tina. You probably haven’t seen this movie in at least a decade, and all those “Vote For Pedro” shirts parading through your local mall are just a distant memory. But, there’s one special thing I need to tell you—this movie holds up!
If you haven’t dove into the Paddington Cinematic Universe, you’re seriously depriving yourself of the warmest fuzzies you’ll ever experience watching a film.If you read the Paddington 2 synopsis, it can be jarring to think of how this movie is labeled wholesome. A bear gets sent to prison? Like, what? But how can you not smile watching an animated bear become best friends with an entire prison population, after making them his famous marmalade sandwiches?
Okay, this may be the dark horse of the list, but I’m adding it for selfish reasons. I love a classic Adam Sandler movie—they’re incredibly fun, dumb romps roller coaster rides! I’m reminded of Billy Madison (1995) when i first watched it. This is a movie you can truly shut your mind off for—just sit back, relax, and watch Adam Sandler in a tiny desk surrounded by a classroom of nine-year-olds.
