The weather has officially dropped significantly and it is the perfect fall temperature. It is time to cozy up in your favorite throw blanket, make a warm drink of your choice, and settle in for a movie night. I present to you all, my ultimate favorite movies that fully embody the autumn aesthetic.
Who doesn’t love a film about love, friendship, and the changes that can arise over a duration of time between two individuals? Love, Rosie is just the film for that. Something about the concept of friends to lovers is so warm to me and that is why it is a movie that feels like fall.
Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban
Honestly, any of the Harry Potter movies that take place during the holiday season are superior, however, The Prisoner of Azkaban is the perfect film for this. The landscape in this movie is filled with Hagrid’s massive pumpkin patch and the incorporation of color-changing leaves that fall in certain clips!
A classic to say the least! Whether you are in elementary school or graduate school this movie is a must during the fall season. Nothing is better than the city of Salem during Halloween and the witty three witches that arise from the spirits of the holiday.
Fantastic Mr. Fox
Out off all the Wes Anderson films, Fantastic Mr. Fox is one that I will always hold near to my heart. It is the story of family and relationships filmed in such an aesthetically pleasing way. I am also a huge fan of analyzing movies and this is one with all different metaphors and meanings.
Remember the Titans
Remember the Titans has been one of my favorite comfort movies since I was a child. The context of this film takes place during the football season which just so happens to be the fall season as well. I love the unifying concept of the movie and the fact that it is based on a true story.
I firmly believe that this movie is one that can easily be watched any time of the year. Yet, the reason I consider it to be a movie that feels like fall is because of the scenery in much of the movie. Based on the color of the leaves it is very obvious that this was filmed in the autumnal time of the year. For context, Big is a movie that follows along with a young twelve-year-old boy who turns into a 30-year-old man through the use of a wishing machine.
