We know that going out can be a tiring process. And with the new variant of the virus spreading once again, we advise you to stay inside again.
We know that can be completely boring and not exactly how you want to start your New Year with. That is why we are here for you. We have compiled a list of the 7 Best Movies To Watch On This New Year’s Eve. So you can actually enjoy your New Year without actually going out. Trust me it is so much better than going out.
A Long Way Down
I know that this might not be your typical new year movie but you have to watch it. A Long Way Down is such a good movie and is so underrated. I hope that you appreciate a little bit of dark humor because this movie is filled with dark humor.
It is about 4 people who want to kill themselves in the new year in the same place at the same time and end up stopping each other. And in simple words, it is just beautiful. Pierce Brosnan’s most memorable role after James Bond. You can also read the book which is of the same name.
I think this might be one of the most aesthetic movies I have ever watched. From makeup to clothes, from colors to the direction, everything is just so gorgeous.
And the fact that the storyline is also great, works in the favor of the movie as well. Both Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara gave performances of the year. The movie is set in 1950s New York, and that is always a good sight to see.
It is about 2 women that fall for each other. And the story is constructed in such a beautiful way. Many filmmakers from across the globe tried to use the same concept but were never able to make it work like Carol.
Sleepless In Seattle
I really don’t care what people say about this movie. Because it is just brilliant. I know lots of aspects are different now as compared to the time the movie was released. But Sleepless In Seattle is just a feel-good movie that you will like no matter what you want to believe.
You will root for Meg’s character no matter what the situation is. And honestly, it is just a movie. Just watch it and enjoy it. You might ruin almost every romantic comedy if you think about it that much.
When Harry Met Sally
From a very good romantic comedy to one of the best ever. If you are going to watch it for the first time now, you might not feel the magic. But when I watched it for the first time it was just so surreal. I think it was my first exposure to an “Imperfect love story”.
The Harry and Sally trope has become so common now that people don’t realize things were so different back then. In my opinion, everything in the movie was good. From locations to the characters. It covered almost a decade of both the characters’ lives. Even the side character mattered and they did not steal the light of the main characters.
You might be thinking that I am biased towards this movie, it is because I really am. You just have to give it a watch to know what I am talking about. A perfect getaway movie for everyone.
I know this might be a confusing movie because I was confused too after watching it for the first time. But give it some time and you might really like this one. It is not your typical New Year movie. I know that. I just don’t want to fill this list with feel-good Romantic Comedy movies, because that would be boring.
Instead, Four Rooms is a weird but very interesting movie to watch. It is a showcase of four directors which involves Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. And both of their segments are brilliant. The other two segments are not that special compared to these two but it is something different and new. Kind of the best way to start your New Year.
Because you need some Paul Rudd to make your New Year feel like a New Year. And it has so many other stars as well. Most noticeably Ben Affleck, Casey Affleck, Kate Hudson, Dave Chappelle, and many more.
This movie is about some “Twenty-something” year old that tries to cope up with loneliness, relationships, and look forward to New Year on obviously the last day of the year. And isn’t that what we will do on New Year’s eve? Try to forget everything and work on a better New Year. It is my favorite movie to watch on New Year for sure.
And just look at Paul Rudd. Look at that ridiculous trim. Isn’t that beautiful!!!
Godfather Part II
Welcome to the biggest party of the year hosted by the biggest villain of the world. The second part starts right after the first one. Micheal is expanding his grip over the underworld. While we also get to see the early life of Vito Corleone.
Just like all the other lists, I included Godfather Part II, solely because of the “Kiss Of Death” scene. Because it is one of the best scenes ever in any cinema.
So, this was our list of 7 Movies To Watch On This New Year’s Eve. Know of any other movies that we might have missed? Because of course we have. Let us know down below. And for lists like these and the latest reviews keep following Reelsrated.
