Movie recommendations for when a Gilmore Girls re-watch seems a little too overwhelming.
13. THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS
Wes Anderson’s 2001 film is equal parts funny and heartbreaking– packed with tender moments and outrageous characters. The film is not only gorgeous to look at but will make you feel in every corner of your heart. (CW: for suicide)
12. You’ve got mail
Meg Ryan and Nora Ephron are the queens of fall, that’s all there is to it. A sweet, tender film about rival bookstore owners is the perfect movie to curl up and watch with a warm cup of tea.
This 1988 film features one of Winona Ryder’s most iconic roles and is guaranteed to get you in the mood for Spooky Season.
If you’re looking for a film that comforts your inner child, Matilda is it. Cuddle up under your favorite blanket and let your burnt-out gifted kid heart relax.
9. Goodwill hunting
Robin Williams and Matt Damon shine in this film about a janitor turned discovered math genius. Get your tissues ready for this one and prepare to see some of the best performances of your life.
8. its the great pumpkin charlie brown
A comforting classic, guaranteed to make you smile. Have your favorite pumpkin treat ready and enjoy the best way to spend 25 minutes.
7. What we do in the shadows
Taika Waititi’s 2014 film is genius from beginning to end. Packed with incredible comedic performances and shot masterfully in a mockumentary style this film is guaranteed to make you laugh. And if you love it and want even more, the movie has its own spinoff FX show.
6. knives out
Rian Johnson’s luscious murder mystery is packed not only with intrigue and an epic twist–but also some of the best cinematography of the fall season.
This beloved stop-motion animated film may have frightened many of us as children (and some of us still into adulthood) but its twist and turns are always intriguing, and Coraline is easily one of the best protagonists around.
4. when harry met sally
Meg Ryan and Nora Ephron’s first team-up produced arguably their greatest film. A beautiful friends-to-lovers story that spans over 12 years is worth the watch on its own. But it also features some of the best and most timeless fall fashion known to film.
3. fantastic mr fox
Another Wes Anderson film, this time done with stop motion animation is potentially Anderson’s greatest claim to fame. This movie’s heart beats fall, from the color scheme to the overall vibe, it’s the perfect fall film.
2. little women
Although the film spans multiple seasons it is dominated by the fall season, and its most iconic scene (if you know, you know) takes place on a hillside coated with fall beauty. A must watch anytime of the year, Little Women adds an extra sense of magic and love to the air when watched in the fall.
For some classic fall DCOMs, Hocus Pocus, Halloweentown and Girl Vs. Monster are definitely your best bet. In terms of franchises, one can never go wrong with a Harry Potter or Twilight movie marathon this fall.
1. dead poets society
This is THE fall film, simply nothing can top it. A moving story of friendship, knowledge and the power of words. This is worth every watch and every re-watch in any season, but especially this fall for its gorgeous fall aesthetic.
