Ten Movies That Will Get You Excited About Fall

sweatshirt found here.


  1. Skeleton Twins.

This movie is so funny and sad and dark and I could watch it over and over and the ending still makes my stomach drop. Oh how I love Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader in anything together. Definitely watch this if you haven’t already, it might be in my top ten favorites of ALL TIME (not just fall! #bigdeal.)

    2. Mystic Pizza.

Set in Mystic, Connecticut in the late 80s, this movie is very cliche and corny and basically everything wonderful/terrible about movies from this time. And I love it. It’s a great background movie 🙂

    3. Stepmom.

Ten years later, Julia has moved on from pizza to photography. Remember when all movies had the two minute sing-along and dance-on-the-bed scene? I think we should go back to that. I put “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” on every burned CD for the next five years thanks to this flick. And when Isabel photoshopped in the old man carrying fruit into the fancy ad she was shooting? Mind. Blown. So this is the future, huh?!

      4. When Harry Met Sally.

I watch this move for three reasons: Meg Ryan, her chunky sweaters and blazers, and New York in the fall.

     5. Dead Poets Society.

Because it’s the best and I get choked up just thinking about this movie.

    6. Hocus Pocus.

Did you really think I was going to make this list and NOT mention this movie? It would be like making a Christmas movie list and leaving out Home Alone.

7. Sex & The City. (The movie.)

Mostly for the fall and Halloween scenes in New York. “Witch or sexy kitten?”

8. The Goonies.

I don’t even know if this movie takes place during the fall but it always feels like it does to me so I’m including it.

9. You’ve Got Mail.

Cliche and corny in the best possible Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks kinda way. Also fall vibes.

10. Mermaids.

If you haven’t seen Mermaids yet, boy are you in for a treat! It’s the reason I’m still obsessed with finger foods to this day. And WHAT A CAST, it just doesn’t get much better.

I’m sure I’m leaving out a lot, but these are always that first that come to mind (and the first I watch every season.) What are your favorites?
