Movie Watch List

I love watching movies but I feel like I hardly have time during the school year. Hopefully now that the summer is here and I have more time on my hands, I will be able to watch all of the movies that have on my growing list. 

I was actually able to watch a lot of the movies on my list as I was coming back from Oman. You would be surprised how many movies you can watch (and how undistracted you can be!) during not just one, but TWO nine hour flights.

The Finest Hours // I actually bought this book a couple of months ago at Target and haven't gotten around to reading it yet, but I've been dying to see the movie! I live for these types of movies - where I'm on the edge of my seat the whole time, leaning forward and urging the actors through the screen to move faster. PLUS (and this is always a bonus), Chris Pine is super good looking! ;)

Joy // When Joy first came out, I was a bit skeptical. A movie about a woman who sells vacuums? How good can it really be? And after hearing a few mixed reviews, I figured that I might as well see it at some point! Hopefully I'll be able to find it online or at Red Box.

Race // I love movies like this too!! I'm a big sports fan and I love sports dramas. (We Are Marshall, Radio, Remember the Titans just to name a few.) Plus, I'm literally obsessed with the Olympics so this movie combines three of my absolute favorite things. I've actually wanted to see this movie for a very long time so I'm excited that I actually have time to watch it now!

The 33 // I was in the tenth grade when the miners got trapped in Chile. I vividly remember watching the rescue in my fourth period AP European History class! This movie didn't get very good reviews, but since I remember it happening I really want to see how they interpreted it on the big screen.

Room // Another movie at the top of my list. After watching Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay interact at the Oscars, I've been dying to see this movie. It was actually on my flights to and from Oman, but I never watched it because I was convinced I would cry! Probably nothing more embarrassing than crying over a movie while you're trapped on a plane! 

What movies have you seen recently? Have you seen any of these? 


  1. Room has to be one of my favorite movies that have come out in the past year! It's definitely worth the watch!

  2. I haven't seen any of these, but Room has been at the top of my list for a long time! I really wanna see Race too, I loooove sports movies also!! :)


  3. These sound so great! I ned to look into them

  8. Love this post, I'm always looking for new good movies to watch! Just saw the Room, it was so good!

  9. Joy is one of my favorite movies. Love Jennifer Lawrence, of course! Loved the message.

  10. I loved Room! It's pretty slow paced, but it's such a heartbreaking movie with an incredible story. I read the book, and of course it was so much better. I would recommend reading that before watching the movie! The movie stays pretty true to the book, but of course just moves at a quicker pace and eliminates minor details.

    1. This is so helpful!! Thank you!!

    2. Hey if you love 'edge of your seat' movies, i would totally recommend Vertical Limits! Saw this a few weeks ago on TV, and I groaned each time the ads came on! Haha

  11. These are great picks! I have so many movies I want to catch up on too!

  12. I really want to see Joy and Room! Thanks for the great movie suggestion list.

  13. I REALLY want to see Race! I really enjoyed Room. My husband thought it was weird, but I thought it was a great story.


  14. I actually haven't seen any of these which is a little crazy because I'm a huge movie fan. Definitely adding these to my list. xx Merisa | Monogrammed Magnolias
