Romantic Comedies

Had a bad week? Don’t worry, these three feel-good, romantic movies can mend those blues. 

1. La La Land (2016)

Rated PG-13

Available on Amazon Prime

Starring Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, and Rosemarie DeWitt


This Academy Award-winning movie brings you all the feels. It follows a couple pursuing their dreams in Hollywood, which eventually tests their future. The fight between ambition and love is beautifully enveloped with dancing, singing, and music. 

2. Crazy Rich Asians (2018)

Rated PG-13

Available on Amazon Prime

Starring Constance Wu, Henry Golding, and Michelle Yeoh


When you discover your significant other comes from a multimillionaire family, things are bound to get a bit crazy. Packed with gorgeous locations, intimidating relatives, and jealous socialites, Crazy Rich Asians brings you a fairy-tale set in Singapore.

3. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (2010)

Rated PG-13

Available on Netflix

Starring Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Chris Evans


Based on the cult comic book series, this sweet, imaginative, and infectious film taps into your inner geek. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World follows a bass guitarist who must fight his one true love’s army of ex-boyfriends. It’s filled with an exciting combination of romance, comedy, action, and drama. 

Action/Adventure/Mystery 

Sometimes, mushy love stories can get pretty cliche and dated. So if you’re feeling up to something else, here are three great action, adventure, and mystery films that will help mix things up. 

4. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)

Rated PG

Available on Netflix

Starring Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, and Hailee Steinfeld


With a stellar soundtrack and dazzling visuals, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse offers a wild ride into alternative universes that introduce different iterations of Spider-Mans. Though it has a mind-bending premise, this animated film impressively keeps it simple and smart that’s great for all ages. 

5. Knives Out (2019)

Rated PG-13

Available on Amazon Prime

Starring Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, and Ana de Armas


Not only does Knives Out have a star-studded cast, but it also carries an intriguing murder mystery storyline. With plot twists and Agatha Christie vibes, the film amuses you with sharp writing, class snobbery, and humorous moments. Let’s just say, it’s a film that keeps on giving. 

6. The Dark Knight (2008)

Rated PG-13

Available on Amazon Prime

Starring Christian Bale, Michael Caine, and Heath Ledger


This bleak yet brilliant film offers fantastic action and performances. It doesn’t feel or look like your typical superhero movie; the film is enfolded with complex narratives and a rich atmosphere that transcends the superhero genre. Not to mention, Heath Ledger brings an unforgettable performance as the Joker. 

Thriller/Horror

Looking to kick things up a notch and step into some sinister territory? Delight yourself with these heart-racing films.  

7. A Quiet Place (2018)

Rated PG-13

Available on Hulu

Starring John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, and Millicent Simmonds


This sci-fi horror film takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. A family must live in silence to avoid frightening creatures that hunt by sound. A Quiet Place carries the perfect amount of tension, fright, and familial love that puts you on a fun and emotional rollercoaster.  

8. Jaws (1975)

Rated PG

Available on Hulu

Starring Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, and Richard Dreyfuss


The classic thriller by Steven Spielberg, Jaws brings you a killer shark that terrorizes a beach community. A local sheriff, marine biologist, and seafarer team up to hunt it down. 


Filled with some gloriously unpredictable scenes, Jaws is an entertaining film that provides nail-biting suspense and adventure. It’s definitely a good one to cuddle with your loved one or tub of ice cream.
