Whenever it rains, which oddly enough is a lot where I live, I love to curl up in bed and watch a movie. There's something so weirdly comforting about being in a warm comfy space when the outside is the complete opposite. I made a mini list of some of the movies I go to when a rainy day visits me.
This film is currently streaming on Netflix, and is probably one of my absolute favorite (animated?) films. I remember when it first came out, everyone was freaking out about how scary it was even though it was supposedly considered a children's movie. I'll admit, there's definitely a creepy vibe to it but there's something so !!! about it that makes me constantly catch myself thinking about it no matter how many times I watch it.
I just really really really love Wes Anderson. I remember watching Fantastic Mr. Fox at our local theatre and just falling absolutely in love with the way he approaches storytelling. Out of all Wes Andersons films, this is probably one of my favorites because I absolutely love New England + the 60's. This film is currently streaming on Netflix!
Alongside Wes, I also really love Sofia Coppola! I also distinctly remember sitting in a movie theatre in New York and seeing the preview for this film which literally came out more than 10 years ago! I've always loved period pieces, especially ones that focus on France in the 1700's because I'm absolutely mesmerized by French history. This movie has the BEST soundtrack and just does a really interesting way of telling the story of Marie Antoinette.
This film has a similar element to Coraline. I remember watching this when I was younger and just having this weird feeling—not in any bad way just a weird way. I've always found children's movies to have weird storylines that you never truly understand until you watch them when you're a little bit older. This is at the top of my list to watch as soon as I get another rain day. This isn't streaming on Netflix, but you can catch it on Amazon and perhaps Hulu!
