Favorite Lazy Day Movies

Sometimes, I just enjoy spending a lazy day or two watching movies and resting. Below are a few of my favorites for such occasions, in no particular order.

While You Were Sleeping
More times than not, this is my go-to movie for lazy days. Or any day, for that matter. If I ever had to choose a favorite movie, it would probably be this one. :)

Pride & Prejudice
This is my favorite adaptation of the Austen novel, with my favorite version of Mr. Darcy. This is very often the first movie I think of from my movie shelf if I’m thinking of a marathon.

This is probably the movie that really caused my nerdiness over the Avengers. As much as I enjoyed the previous movies leading to this one, Thor and Loki became my favorite superhero and villain. I pick this one from the movie shelf quite often.

This is the newest addition to the list. I’d watched the trailer last year but it wasn’t in theaters here, so I had to wait for it to come to DVD so I could rent it. I don’t own it yet, but when I do, it will definitely be a good one for marathoning.

This is probably my favorite adaptation of Emma. Emma is my second favorite of Austen’s novels, and I think this is a fun take on it.

This was one of those movies I rented because it looked kinda cute and I hadn’t watched it before. It’s quirky, but it’s a fun one which often is considered for marathon days. 

North & South
My little sister was the one who told me I should watch this miniseries. Her reasons: “it’s a little bit like those Jane Austen movies you like, and it has Richard Armitage in it.” So I watched it, and it has become a staple for my marathon considerations.

Sense and Sensibility
 As you can tell, I’m something of an Austen fan.   :)   This is the only film adaptation I’ve watched of this novel, and I love how sweet it is. 

What are some of your favorite “lazy day” movies?


  1. You have a pretty good selection. :] I especially love the Austen ones! Although I tend to lean more toward the 1995 version of Pride & Prejudice. . . North & South is awesome!! Your sister has a marvelous reason regarding why a person should see it. ;D I love that version of Emma. I saw one other, but loved this one best. And Thor! GAH! So good.

    I love watching the extended versions of Lord of the Rings on lazy days. But those kind of days usually go for more chick-flicks, for some reason. . .

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thank you :)

    I've seen the 1995 P&P, but it's been several years... I've also seen part of the one from the 1940s, though I need to watch the whole thing.

    LOTR marathons are great! I usually have to watch them over the course of a few days, with work and everything (although I did get to do a 1-day marathon for my 17th birthday). I love the extended versions of the movies. Which one is your favorite?

    Thanks for stopping by!
