Bed weather is here! What better way to spend these cold nights and lazy days is with a cup of hot coffee, all curled up in your nice, welcoming bed with your cute fuzzy pair of socks on, snuggling around with your favorite blanket in front of your television while watching films that would warm you from the inside.
If you haven’t decided which to watch, we have gathered 10 movies to make you laugh, cry, feel good, excited, love and all other emotions at once, and would be perfect for the long nights.
- Alice in Wonderland (1951). One thing to love about this animated movie is that it does not dwell too much on the adult world. Alice, a 12-year-old girl with a very imaginative mind, represents the kid in every audience’s heart. This classic Disney movie is perfect for just chilling after one stressful day or if you just don’t want a film too heavy to watch or hard to digest. Go back to your childhood days and sing along to the Mad Hatter and the March Hare’s “Very Merry Unbirthday” song, listen to the twin’s story of the “Walrus and the Carpenter”, or love the mischievous Chester cat! This feel-good, family entertainment movie will surely give you the warm feeling on the insides.
- Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961). Going through the cold weather in style, Audrey Hepburn will surely sweep you off your feet. This 1960s classic is about a girl who wants to be a socialite thus would do everything to be so. One of the actual catch of the movie is Hepburn’s singing of “Moon River” with John Mercer’s lyrics which can leave you with LSS. Drown with Holly Golightly (aka Hepburn) sophisticated with a mix of F-U-N fashion. But the movie is not just all about glamour and fashion and beauty. It is also a tale of love and romance. Join Holly’s adventure to reach her dream… which will turn out to an unexpected love story.
- The Breakfast Club (1985). “Don’t you forget about me…” This is a line from The Breakfast Club’s OST “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” by Simple Minds would probably be your official OST for a week! A group of kids spending detention one Saturday afternoon is not spine tingling, but the Breakfast Club offers more than usual detention stories. This film does is not only show a bunch of students stranger to each other but will eventually find something common.
- Jumanji (1995). Missing Robin Williams that much? This rainy season, check one of the ‘90s kid’s favorite movie of all time. Jumanji is board game which comes to life once it is started. Robin Williams will not only give you an adventure of a lifetime but will also make you see what is important. Gather the whole family for one exciting adventure and play along with Jumanji.

Living together on an isolation cabin, the two of them found out that they both have the same birthday and has half of a torn wedding photograph of their parents.
