I don’t know about you but today feels like a real January day. Everyone is either sniffling with colds or grumbling about diets or being skint after Christmas.
It is just about the right time for some cheer, some cosyness..warmth and FILMS! Earlier this week I asked my Twitter followers to tell me their favourite films for feel good vibes or just to cosy up to. And I got some really good recommendations.. most I have seen and loved but also some new ones thrown into the mix.
What films do you consider cosy films? Feel good films? For a blog post.

So here is a list, a list to turn to and slowly check off during these gloomy days. ENJOY!!
1. Home Alone ( and Home Alone 2 )
A lot of you recommended Home Alone. I can see why. It is one of those films you always watch during Winter. Full of nonsense and an escape from real life.
2. The Harry Potter films
These were the first films that popped into my head, I am not sure but they always seem like cosy films. The kind you watch with a mug of hot chocolate and a roaring fire in the background. Lots of you on Twitter and Facebook agreed including Cate In The Kitchen.
you’ll get this a hundred times over but all the Harry Potter films

3. Back To The Future
This was mentioned quite a few times in conversations online and offline with my friends and family about films they like to watch over and over.

4. The Holiday
Another popular one, The Holiday is one of those films which you can’t help but feel a little happier after watching. Shout out to fans CathTwo, Chrissylast, Abi Lye and Jenny from She Gets Around for the reminder.
5. Robin Williams films
Hook, Patch Adams and a few other Robin Williams popped up a few times as favourite feel good films. Thanks to AndyStu212 and AmyleighCragg for making me wanting to rewatch all of his films.
6. Dirty Dancing
This was mentioned by Cathtwo but also happens to be one of my all time favourites.I could watch this film over and over and over..and I have.
7.Father Of The Bride ( 1&2)
I haven’t seen this films in years and year but I am planning to watch it again this week after a recommendation from Chrissylast who says it’s worth it for Fronnnnncccc alone. And I agree.
8. Big Fish
Lostlands cinema recommend Big Fish and well they know what they are talking about AND I have never seen it so I have another film lined up for my movie week.
9. My Best Friend’s Wedding
Another film I adore, recommended by Lisa from Lovely Appetite. It is the kind of film which makes you smile and cry and smile all over again.
10. Sweet Home Alabama
A slightly cheesy yet entirely watchable film starring Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon, it is a really easy and fun watch and recommended by Debbie from An Organised Mess.
11. The Lord Of The Rings films
Recommended by MattP and a lot of other people online. The LOTR films invite cosiness and whip you away into another world as all the very best films do.
12. About A Boy
Another film I haven’t seen in an age but need to rewatch. A feel good film.
I have watched this quite a few times over the years, it is a story of a love that seems like it will never happen and as the name suggests it is about serendipitous moments.
14. Pretty Woman
A classic film starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere, I can’t imagine there are many of us that haven’t watched it at least once. A story of unexpected love and the changes it can bring.
15. Me Before You
This may seem an unusual recommendation, it is a rather heart breaking film after all. But the main gist of the book and film is that you must live your life as fully as you can, he pushes her to change, to open her mind and to realise she can be more. It leaves you with a sense of urgency that your life must be lived and therefore it may make you cry but it will also make you feel good. It’s a strange one, a really medley of emotions but do give it a go.
Go get yourself as cosy as this dog below and start working your way through my list, let me know what you enjoy!
