In these rather strange and troubling times we are living in at the moment it is of course very easy to get depressed and down in the dumps. Many of us are naturally struggling to fill the time in the absence of being able to do normal things – like visit family and friends, go to the pubs, restaurants, theatres or cinemas. So what to do to stave off the COVID19 blues? Some people are playing board games, some are listening to music, others are on their play stations or Xboxes.
However if you are like me (a notoriously obsessed film geek) you may be raiding your dvd/blu ray collection or trawling though Netflix and Amazon Prime in search of some thing to watch. So to help you all out I have compiled a few lists of films and box sets to see you though the coming weeks.
List 1 – Fantastic feel good films that will be assured to cheer you all up and make you feel better about life in general (FYI some of these can be found on Netflix and Amazon Prime – some u may have to buy on dvd)
- The Shawshank Redemption
- Good Will Hunting
- Escape To Victory
- Warrior (I encourage ALL of you to watch this film – Tom Hardy/Joel Edgerton and Nick Nolte – brilliant)
- Rocky 1, 2 3 4 and Rocky Balboa
- Fisherman’s Friends
- Shaun The Sheep Movie
- Wallace and Gromit – Curse of The Were-Rabbit/The Wrong Trousers/A Close Shave/A Grand Day Out
- The Green Mile
- Forrest Gump
- The Full Monty
- Home Alone
- Back to The Future
- The Lion King (not the remake the proper 1994 original)
- Notting Hill
- Field Of Dreams
- Shakespeare In Love
I’ll be back with more lists to help get you through the current Film shortage!

The Austin Powers to Phil Hobden’s Dr Evil, it’s fair to say Will spends his life trying to convince Phil that Paul WS Anderson ISNT a bad filmmaker, that The Hobbit movies really are THAT good and, for the most part, Phil is wrong about most things. Which he is.
