100 Movie Recommendations For Any Mood You’re In

Reading time: 12 minutes

We, humans, are incredible creatures. We can feel, express, and convey over 27 emotions. And that’s not all. We can even create stories that make others feel one or more of these emotions. Take, for example, the case of movies.

We love movies because they make us feel something. They speak to our desires, allow us to escape, push us to dream the impossible. Fill us with longing and memories. They remind us of life. Remember, they say, how much it hurts to have your heartbroken.

Certain movies leave you in your life, and certain movies stay with you. The ones that make us feel something touch on our emotions are the movies we still think about years later the first time we watched them. It’s all a matter of our feelings.

It’s hard to find the right movie at the right time for the right emotion. That’s why we have organized a list of the top 100 movies you can watch when you’re feeling sad, happy, heartbroken, lost, lonely, nostalgic, lazy.

Let’s jump straight to the point, shall we?
