25 Movies for January

It’s that time again – time for another movie list!  When I was compiling my list for December, I noticed that there weren’t very many lists out there suggesting good movies for January.  And the lists that are out there, aren’t varied enough, in my opinion!  So even though I wasn’t going to make a list for this month, I decided it was my duty :P

As usual, although most of these movies are New Year/January/Winter related, a good number have nothing to do with this time of year at all.  Many are just movies I enjoy and that for some reason, I find myself turning to recently.  Perhaps because of the feelings they evoke!  There are also some family and kid friendly films – which you’ll notice is pretty common on my movie lists.  I think watching movies together can be an important bonding experience.  And even if you don’t have a family, well, let’s face it, sometimes you just need your entertainment to be heartwarming and fun! This is especially true after the stress of the holidays, I think.

  1. Hmmm I think the movies I normally watch at this time of year vary from year to year, but I do often watch the Monty Python films over this period. Then again, with it being blisteringly summery outside, winter films don’t feel right down my end of the world really :P
    Geeze I haven’t watched some of the films you mention in such a long time, especially The Mighty Ducks films…

  2. I don’t typically have seasonal movies, but I do tend to defy convention, so in the winter I want to watch beach movies and in the summer I want to watch things like Fargo. I do the same with music – I’m much more likely to choose to listen to Christmas music in August. I guess… I’m already cold, I want to be reminded of the heat! :-D

  3. G’day Andrea…Good Will Hunting! A firm favourite and a film I haven’t seen for a while now. Good tip.
    Not sure I’ll be watching Fargo with my daughter anytime soon however :)
    Nice to ‘read’ you again!
