There is nothing like a movie night to cheer us up after an especially challenging week at work or school. It is while watching a particularly good movie that we can get lost in a completely fictional world. We can forget our everyday worries and struggles and we can focus solely on the issues that challenge the film's protagonist.
Of course, choosing the perfect movie for a night in is no easy feat. There are countless films that we can choose from, including blockbusters and indie films. Going for films that are similar to the ones that we liked in the past is always a good starting point. We can also consult our family members and friends (they often have good recommendations) and the internet if we want to narrow down our choices. We may not always agree with the general public - or film critics - but it is always interesting to get someone else's opinion.
No matter how much we love movies we probably haven't seen all the films out there (even though we might think otherwise). This means that even though we might struggle at first, we are bound to find the perfect movie for a night in eventually. How many of the ones below has everyone seen (and in consequence, can name?) We doubt anyone can name them all!
