Fall is the season when you can get cozy and snuggly under the blanket and watch some good movies. Whether they’re new or the old classics that are worth seeing.
I’ve created a list of drama movies that I could watch over and over again, because they’re that good. If you haven’t seen them, I think you must see them. I promise, your time won’t be wasted.
Pay It Forward (2000)
If I have to choose only one favorite movie, this would be my answer. I’ve seen it already many times and I am going to watch it again.
I’ll just leave you with this quote:
“If somebody does something for you, don’t pay it back, pay it forward”
The Pursuit Of Happyness (2006)
I’m not gonna lie, I really like movies based on a true story. This is one of them. It shows a love of a father for his son. You will be fully invested in the struggles of the main characters.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975)
Oldie, but a goodie. It was a couple of years ago when I saw this movie for the first time at university (at one of my sociology classes). When I’ve found out that my husband hasn’t seen it, it’s on our list right now.
I’m not going to write anything other about this movie than that it won 5 Oscars: Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director and Best Screenplay.
Into The Wild (2007)
Have you ever had one of those days when you’d like to just leave everything and go somewhere far far away from everything that surrounds you?
The main character did it, he gives all of his savings to charity and hitchhikes to Alaska to live in the wilderness. I’m saying: that’s very brave.
Also, this is based on a true story!
The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
Based on Stephen King’s novel and that guy when he writes something, he writes it very well.
“Some birds aren’t meant to be caged”
This movie encompasses friendships, hardships, hopes and dreams. You need to see it to understand what everybody is talking about.
The Green Mile (1999)
Another movie based on Stephen’s novel and is about a guy who has a mysterious gift who affects the lives of guards on Death Row.
Inspiring and uplifting story of a boy with facial differences.
Life Is Beautiful (1997)
It’s about having courage and inner strength in a very difficult times where the main characters become victims of a Holocaust.
Last, but definitely not least.
It’s a movie that shows true events that happened in 1940 (World War II) filled with archive footage, picture and terrific narrator.
Enjoy watching them and supply yourself with a tissue or two, because I need them with most of them.
Find me on social media, because it’ll be great to have you there and follow me 😊:

I have seen the four movies in the middle of the list, and enjoyed each. Will need to check out the others, fairly soon.

My favourite movie is, precisely, Into The Wild! It’s a great, great movie! 😀

Pay It Forward Is my favorite too! Nice one
Thank you! 🙂🌺
You are very much welcome, keep up the good work ma’am.

I didn’t see “Pay it forward” and “Katyn”, the others have seen and liked very much. So it seems that I have to see the other two as well, doesn’t it? 🙂 😉

The Deer Hunter (1978)
Sophie’s Choice (1982)

Wow, that’s great! 🙂🌷
I worked as an extra in Shawshank Redemption. Jerry, Lancaster, Ohio
Wow, that’s amazing!!! 😃👍😃
Haven’t watched none of them 😅
Oh girl, you have a lot to watch then 😄
True 😅 so true
Wonderful list; you’ve made some great choices! I’ve seen all of these, except Into the Wild, at least once. Guess which movie just made my list. Of all of them, though, Shawshank is the favorite. Although I’ve seen it a dozen times already, if I happen across it while watching TV, I must watch it. No question.
Same here! 🙂
one flew over the cuckoo’s nest is SUCH a classic!
So true! 🙂👍
Great choices! I’ve seen most of those multiple times!
Awesome and thank you!
I haven’t seen a single one of these ┻━┻ ︵ \(Ò_Ó \)
Oh, you have a lot to watch then! 🙂🌷
I’ll try if I can. What would be your number 1 recomwndation?
Hmmm, maybe “Pay it forward” 🙂🌼
You’re very welcome! 🙂🌹
I LOVE Life is Beautiful!! My husband and I laughed and cried so much during that movie!! Wonderful list 🙂
We did it! Thank you! 🙂🌷
Nice.. Pay it forward!! That movie was heartbreaking
I agree! 🙂🌼
This indeed looks like a unanimous choice of a list!! I have also watched almost all and enjoyed each n every flavour that these movies had to offer💕💕I am a movie buff and i gorge on some of those romcom Christmas movies too!! Thank you for the great post😊😊
My pleasure and I’ll post more movies, for sure, especially for Christmas time! 🙂🌹
I love the pursuit of happiness. That was a great movie
Shawshank is an absolute classic and The Green Mile is my all-time favorite book! I didn’t care much for Into the Wild (book or movie), much prefer Into Thin Air (I think the movie is called Everest).

I’ve only seen the Shawshank redemption! I totally want to see the rest. 🙂 saving this list for later! Thank you x

I cried on this movie, The Pursuit Of Happyness (2006). Like Mahatma Gandhi quotes says: “Live as if you were to die tomorrow, Learn as if you were to live forever”
How about list horror movies?
I’m not a huge fan of horror movies, to be honest, but maybe I’ll make one 🙂🌷
