We all have those days when we feel down and feel like doing nothing. Instead of spending your entire day in bed, fire up Netflix or your torrent client and watch one of these movies.
This is a list of my favorite movies that I watch when I’m feeling depressed. These movies always help me cheer myself up and feel all pumped up.
I’d watch this movie just to see Al Pachino. His acting is flawless and I’d watch it just to see the way he talks.
The movie is about an illegal immigrant who takes a shortcut to success and eventually pays the price. After watching the movie, play the video game. You can thank me later.
#9 Jobs 2013
Most people see Steve Jobs as an egotistical jerk. While that’s true, his life story is also pretty amazing and inspiring.
The story of a college dropout who pursue his dreams to be different is the main plot of this movie. It’s a must-see if you’re an entrepreneur or a freelancer.
Zombieland tells the story of an ordinary geek who uses a set of his own rules to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. Most of us can relate to this guy. And that’s what makes this movie fun.
In addition, who doesn’t love to watch zombies gets smashed to pieces.
#7 Iron Man
You have to go through a shitty experience to rise up as a new and a better man. That’s exactly why I love the first Iron Man movie. It just never gets old.
#6 Guardians Of The Galaxy
Guardians of the Galaxy has all types of misfits you see all around you. There’s the guy who went through a traumatic experience that he now use humor as a defense mechanism, there’s this weird creature who’s been abused so much, a giant tree that does awkward stuff, and the rebellion who stops at nothing. It’s the perfect combination.
#5 The Punisher (2004)
If you can’t get enough of Netflix’s The Punisher series, then go watch the movie. Thomas Jane is still my favorite Punisher and the movie is simply perfect. It covers everything from the origin story of the Punisher brilliantly.
#4 The Accountant (2016)
This is an unusual but an uplifting movie that focuses on an accountant with autism, who is also a badass hitman. The story is just what you need to get pumped up when you’re feeling down.
#3 American Psycho
Patrick Bateman is a man of perfection. He likes to go solo and takes down anything that gets in his way. This movie reminds us that even the people who seemingly live perfect lives are often the most broken people in the world.
#2 Pursuit Of Happyness
This is a movie based on a real-life story that will bring a tear to your eyes. I still watch it from time to time to remind myself that the problems I have are nothing compared to the hardships most other people go through. And also to make myself work harder to achieve my dreams.
Limitless is a highly underrated movie that deserves more attention. This is one of those feel-good movies that will get your all pumped up. The movie tells the story of a failed writer who finds a pill that lets him access the 100% of his brain. It’s like a real-world superhero movie. I’ve lost count the number of times I’ve seen this film.
