Favourite Movies To Watch When I'm Down


Whenever I'm feeling down, a movie always perks me up.. Well that or music, I love putting on a Disney movie or a chick flick/romcom. When I'm struggling with the difficulties that life throws, sometimes to be able to find comfort and solace in things like movies makes everything feel so much better. Not only does it take my mind off the problems in my world, it leaves me feeling happier and calmer.

The Little Mermaid- Ahh the wonderful under the sea classic (see what i did there) Growing up, this was my favourite disney film that always made me feel better if i was off sick and it still cheers me up to this day. I think everyone knows the concept of the story: mermaid Ariel is fascinated with life on land. On one of her visits to the surface, which are forbidden by her over protective father, King Triton, Ariel falls for a human prince. Determined to be with her new love. She exchanges her voice and has just days to getting her Prince to fall in love with her... and you all know how it ends.

Tangled - Another feel good Disney movie, centered around Rapunzel. I love the songs, animation and Rapunzel's pet chameleon Pascal, and Maximus, the horse. The film tells the story of a lost, young princess with long magical hair who yearns to leave her secluded tower. Against her 'mother's' wishes, she accepts the aid of a handsome intruder to take her out into the world which she has never seen. I think everyone's favourite scene is the sky lanterns/See The Light, well at least its mine.


Dirty Dancing - This is the greatest 80's film ever exsisted. Everyones favourite chick flick. It's definitely one of my favourite movies and the perfect pick me up movie. Whats not to love about this classic: A sweet love story, dancing and of course Patrick Swayze who was everyones crush in this movie. He works the bad boy look with the leather jacket and shades. This film is not just another feel good love story. 

A Cinderella Story -  this is possibly every-ones favourite. A childhood favourite, Hilary Duff and heart throb Chad Micheal Murray...need I say more? Growing up with this film, I always prayed for a fairytale ending like this, ahh the teenage dream. I love the twist this film has on the disney classic Cinderella, it's hilarious and her dress, wow! I'm not even joking when i say I genuinely thought thats how high school was gonna to be like, finding your own Austin Ames. What a little let down that was.

So that's my 4 films that cheer me up but I can't finish this post without mentioning my other favourites: Beauty & The Beast, The DUFF, Camp Rock and Breakfast At Tiffany's & many more... Anything Disney or a Chick Flick i love.

What movies do you watch to cheer yourself up?
