Our Favourite Films for Movie Night


I hope you are doing well dearest Reader. We are still in the thick of things here at our house, so I wanted to do an easier blog post. This is a list of films that both my husband AND myself have enjoyed. I felt like this genre is sometimes difficult to achieve when both parties in a marriage have different tastes in movies. I'm a strong believer in intentional film viewing, meaning I won't spend time watching just ANYTHING on a streaming service. We only sit down to watch a movie if we've researched the plot and audience reviews. This prevents us from wasting an evening, and leaves us in a good mood when movie night is over!

I tend to like futuristic or dystopian films and heist stories, whereas my husband likes films about the Wild West, WWII, American History, or your basic gangster flick. That being said, we've managed to find common ground on one thing: excellent films. Great acting, captivating stories, and happy endings always leave us with a good feeling, so I've compiled all the films we've mutually enjoyed since the beginning of our relationship over seven years ago.

Hopefully, these can inspire your next movie night too! Be forewarned, however: many of these are NOT family friendly and DO contain violence, cursing, and other adult themes.
