Quarantine Favorites: Movies

Looking for stuff to do, watch, or try while stuck at home?

I've been sharing some of my Quarantine Favorites lately: yummy recipes I've tried and want to try, bingeable TV shows, and addictive books. (I'm still working on this list.)

And today, it's movies! Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, and Amazon Prime have sooo many great movies at our disposal. Here are some of my favorites movie for all of your quarantine moods.

And like I did with my TV shows list, I starred one in each category that you HAVE to see if you could only pick one.

90s Classics

A no-brainer category. Bet you watched these movies when you were growing up in the 90s.


The Craft*

Space Jam

Can't Hardly Wait

Groundhog Day

Drama and Romance

I'm not a straight up romcom gal; I like my romance with a little drama, heartbreak, or quirkiness.


The Social Network

Silver Linings Playbook*


Amazon Prime

Up in the Air

Mysteries and Thrillers

Really ALL of these movies are some of my favorites. If I could recommend only one category to watch everything, it would be this one.


Train to Busan

Amazon Prime

Knives Out

The Handmaiden



Parasite****** ALL THE STARS

Sci-Fi and Fantasy

Okay, most of these are based on books, but they make good movies too.


Minority Report

Blade Runner


Ex Machina*

Amazon Prime and Hulu


Fun and Games

When you need a laugh, these are great choices. Fun fact: I regularly throw quotes from The Birdcage around with my mom.


Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World

The Birdcage*

Amazon Prime


The Cabin in the Woods



Best of Marvel

They may not be the "most important" movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the ones I enjoyed most and would watch again and again. You'll find them on Disney+ and sometimes Netflix or Amazon Prime.

Iron Man

The Avengers

Captain America: Winter Soldier

Guardians of the Galaxy

Thor: Ragnarok

Best of Disney/Pixar

Some of my favorite Disney and Pixar movies of all time. (Don't @ me)

The Lion King

The Aristocats

Beauty and the Beast

The Little Mermaid


Monster's, Inc.

Toy Story



Finding Nemo, What's on My Watchlist

Marriage Story

Always Be My Maybe

Jiro Dreams of Sushi

The Florida Project All the Studio Ghibli movies (I'm halfway through!)

What else should I add to my movie watchlist?
