I love the rain. I would honestly move to England or Seattle just for their weather! And there’s nothing quite like raindrops beating against the windows and thunder in the distance to set the scene for a comfy, cozy movie night in!
With the buckets of rain that have been coming down lately, I thought it would be perfect timing for a rainy day movie marathon!
Take note of my faves and add your own in the comments!
The Breakfast Club: Rain is cozy… nostalgia is cozy… put them together and you have the perfect movie to cuddle up to.
Any movie from the Harry Potter series: I’m sure you can agree that every movie in this series would be made better with rain and thunder in the background.
Jumanji: I think a lot of us can say we spent some great inclement weather days either watching Jumanji during indoor recess at school, or cuddled up with mom on the couch. Sometimes a great movie brings just as much adventure to the screen as you would have if you were playing outside.
The Day After Tomorrow: Disaster movies are one of my favourite niche genres! Is it a bit morbid that a day of heavy rain totally makes me want to watch this crazy weather movie?
How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days: To me, a perfect afternoon is storm clouds, cuddling up, getting snacks and watching a classic RomCom!
E.T.: Something about those dark forest scenes is perfect on a bad weather day…
Inside Out: If this movie doesn’t make you feel warm on a cold, dark day, then I don’t know what will!
National Treasure: Stop laughing at this movie choice – it’s a Nicolas Cage classic, and a thunderstorm can only make the adventure better!
Watch them all this weekend and enjoy!
