A Running List of Movies to Uplift, Entertain, Intrigue

To appreciate this list you should first know this:

I love quality romance, inspiration, goofy fun, things that open my heart, movies that make me think in new ways or have exciting twists. I am a highly sensitive person so I avoid movies that I find disturbing, which means that you’re getting a list of great movies that are free of senseless violence, fear-mongering, sexual abuse, overly offensive language, and content that makes you feel like crap about the world we live in.

I put this together because I have always wanted to come across a list like this created by someone like me who has found some wonderful movie gems and wants to share. Enjoy!!

In no particular order….browse the list for a movie you haven’t seen yet.

beyond-the-lights

Beyond The Lights (2014)

Romance/Drama

This movie got better and better as I watched, and I found myself quite captivated by the music (not the pop stuff at the beginning, but the soundtrack) and cinematography. I watched it without my man, but I wouldn’t call it a chic flick. I wish I had watched it with him actually. There are some spicy romantic scenes too.

Song of the Sea (2014)

Family

I am so used to Pixar type animation that in the first few minutes of this film I wasn’t sure about it. It seemed to artsy. But that quickly gave way to complete awe! I would love to own prints of the amazing artwork in this movie. The plot is rich and uplifting, and contains wonderful messages. It is one of the few movies I would recommend for children. But even just for adults it is SO worth watching. My man and I both loved it.

Magic-Mike

Magic Mike (2012)

Comedy/Drama/Romance

So sexy and fun, with a great cast (Channing Tatum – yum!) and intriguing plot. I have seen this so many times and still love it. It’s a great movie, definitely worth watching. Even my man liked it!

the-good-lie

The Good Lie (2014)

Drama

My heart and eyes were opened by this film. Reese Witherspoon was great in it, and the plot was rich and interesting. I genuinely felt for the characters as though they were real.
