19 Movies to Watch, Organized by Dumb Category

According to the highly credible USA Today article I found after a 2 second internet search, the average person watches somewhere around 5,000 movies in their lifetime.

That’d be something like 400 days of movies back-to-back-to-back…. My dream year. I know most of us are not trying to waste over a year of our lives on bad movies – so in case you’re currently bored of Christmas movies but are still trying to fill up your 5,000 movies per life quota, I’m making a list of some my favorites.

I’ve organized them by my favorite categories: “Winona Ryder,” “Michael Cera,” “Beautiful,” “Scary-ish??,” and “A Little Sad, I Guess.”

Because I know y’all aren’t trying to pay per movie: I’ve labeled them if they were streaming on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime video as of 12-16-17!


WINONA RYDER: A little spooky, a little weird, very great.

  1. Heathers (Netflix)
  2. Edward Scissorhands
  3. Girl, Interrupted (Amazon)

MICHAEL CERA: Whose awkward man is this?

A LITTLE SAD, I GUESS: Some sadder than others, just a warning.

  2. The Perks of Being a Wallflower

  4. (500) Days of Summer

I think that if you’ve seen & liked at least one in a category (and you probably have!), there’s a GREAT chance you’ll enjoy the rest in that group, too!

And of course, I always want to hear recommendations, please! I’ve got 1,000’s of movies to go.
