It’s no surprise that autumn is my favourite season, and not only because of the beautiful colours and spur of inspiration that always comes this time of the year, but also because now you can stay inside, bundle up with a bunch of blankets and not feel bad about it. So, I’m here to help if you don’t know what to watch while being in the blanket bundle. You’re welcome.
Good Will Hunting
At first, I only put Good Will Hunting on the list because of the preview picture on Netflix, but it turned out to be one of the most beautiful movies I’ve ever seen – a little cry included.
I think the combination of university and Robin Williams, who just feels like autumn as a person, kept it on the list – as well as it’s just a frickin’ good movie.
Dead Poet Society
A few years ago, I already tried to watch this movie, but stopped after 10 minutes or so. Thankfully I gave it another shot because it turned out – surprise, surprise – to be a really good movie.
It definitely is something for the gloomier days of autumn, but as there are more of those at the moment, it shouldn’t be a problem.
Also, funnily enough some of the same aspects to be on this list apply to both Good Will Hunting and Dead Poet Society: a school setting, Robin Williams and a few shed tears.
When Harry met Sally
To lift the mood a bit, there obviously had to be a romcom in here somewhere. When Harry met Sally is the perfect fit for that. Nothing too heavy, just a classic romcom.
I really enjoyed the concepts of the time jumps and it was also pretty nice to see the origin too some well-known references.
Halloween is not far away, so there has to be as least something kinda spooky on this list.
A Nightmare before Christmas
A Nightmare before Christmas is far from an insider tip, but it’s the perfect fit if you’re already excited for Christmas (less than 2 months away!), but still need to embrace the Halloween spirit. And I don’t think there’s much more to say, just go and watch the movie.
Last but not least, I’ve got this gem for you if a quick autumn fix is needed:
Thanks to a friend I spent an entire day watching Hilda, a British animated series, and it was wonderful – I’m already on a re-run.
The art style Is gorgeous, the colour palette screams autumn and I mean there are loads of monsters and other fantastical things. It really makes you want to go out and explore the nearby woods – and hope to befriend a dear fox.
What are your favourite cozy autumn watches? Let me know in the comments.
