Movies to watch to romanticize your life this fall

Happy Fall! This is the perfect time of the year to romanticize your life as the leaves are changing color and you have an excuse to wear your favorite sweater again. Here are the best fall movies to get you in the autumnal mood, and give you an excuse to cozy up inside with your favorite pumpkin drink.

’Twilight’ (2008)

There is nothing quite like the stunning setting of Forks, Washington, shot in a dark blue filter that makes “Twilight” one of the coziest fall movies. Whether you are watching “Twilight” for the first time, or rewatching it for the hundredth, there is nothing like having a “Twilight” movie night with your friends.

‘Hocus Pocus’ (1993)

It’s about time for your annual rewatch of “Hocus Pocus”! This Halloween tale tells the story of the Sanderson witch sisters who are resurrected in Salem, Massachusetts, 300 years after being executed. Nothing quite beats a talking cat named Binx, either.

’Beetlejuice’ (1988)

What is better than a Winona Ryder film set in a haunted house? That is a hard one to top. This movie will have you laughing at the quirky characters and enchanted by the spooky vibes.  

‘Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone’ (2001)

From its stunning visuals, witty dialogue, mystical adventures and escape into a world of magic and enchantment, “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” is a classic movie to watch this autumn. There is something so cozy and warm about the first Harry Potter movies, and thus makes a perfect addition to your fall watch list.

‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ (1993)

Nothing screams fall like a classic Tim Burton movie. “The Nightmare Before Christmas” follows Jack Skellington on his adventure leaving his spooky Halloweentown to take over Christmas. The soundtrack is classic and iconic and is guaranteed to put you in a fall mood.

‘Coraline’ (2009)

“Coraline” is a stop-motion film that never fails to get me in the right mood for autumn. Coraline Jones enters a world through a portal in her house and finds that life is everything she has ever wanted it to be. However, sometimes things are too good to be true…

‘Monster House’ (2006)

Arguably one of the best family friendly Halloween movies, this is an ideal and cozy watch during the fall season. This movie follows a hilarious, spooky and exciting adventure revolving around a strange house.

‘Clueless’ (1995)

Despite not usually being seen as a fall movie, nothing is more iconic than the 90’s fashion and comedy in “Clueless.” Along with this, the film is a modern adaptation of Jane Austen’s “Emma,” making it the perfect and light-hearted movie to watch on your next movie night.
