Random Movie Recommendations #2

The mood has struck me again to do one of these random recommendation posts. (You know the drill, those aren’t really reviews, but just very brief thoughts on the films!) If you’ve kept up with my trailer rambles, you’ve probably noticed that I am a bit frustrated by the lack of romantic comedies or romance movies in general. When I was younger, I feel like they were coming out each week and now there is a trailer for a movie like that maybe once a week. So, that’s why I chose it as the theme for this post!

Home Again

I’ve had this movie in my trailer round up a couple of times and now that I finally watched it, I can only say that I am in love! I know that some people were concerned about the romantic aspect or the amount of love interests for Reese’s character, but let me tell you, worry not! I sat in that movie with the biggest grin on my face, awe-ing every other minute and completely falling in love with everyone.

What you can’t see from the trailer is that the three twenty-something guys are actually in the film business and that just made the whole story even more appealing to me. Also, it’s not so much about the romantic aspect in general, but family and a sense of belonging and knowing who you are and what’s important to you. I thought it was done in an incredibly sweet and funny way, I could have watched those people for hours and hours more.

It’s not the perfect movie, but it is the perfect escape. It’s easy to watch, makes you feel good and is great for a girl’s night out!

Carrie Pilby

I may not be a genius, but I could relate to Carrie on SO many levels! She loves reading, she sometimes has a difficult time going out and meeting new people, her dating life is a catastrophe … and so on! I haven’t read the book it is based on, but I am curious about that too now.

This may not be a RomCom so much as a comedy on the verge of drama, but in general, I just adored the casting and the vibe of the entire movie. It had such a charm to it, had some sharp dialogue, was hilarious but it also got you thinking a lot. It’s about finding your place in the world and the right people that will accompany you on the way. And, it’s about making the decisions that are right for you and that you can live with.

I highly recommend this for a binge on a rainy fall/winter day!

What are some comedies you’ve watched and liked lately? Have you watched either one of my films?

  1. You’ve already sold me on Home Again. I’m finding it harder to find some good romantic comedy films these days but this one looks right up my alley. I’m always on the lookout for these feel good films where I can just sit back and enjoy.

  2. I think we’ve had this discussion before but I MISS ROMANTIC MOVIES TOO!!! I feel like (and I’m gonna go full on conspiracy theory too) that I remember seeing a couple of articles by movie pundits saying they were done with rom coms, and I’m not saying this influenced hollywoods decision… but it totally influenced hollywood’s decision, cos after that they seemed to stop making rom coms. Okay, maybe too far down the conspiracy rabbit hole, but I do think they arbitrarily decided people didn’t want to watch rom coms anymore, when they really, really do. I’ve been meaning to watch Home Again for a while. Carrie Pilby looks fun too!

    • I don’t think it’s that so much as it is people not wanting to go to the movies as much anymore. Most people just watch stuff from home and don’t want to pay for that movie ticket, unless it’s really better and more fun on the big screen (like action sequences and 3D stuff). RomComs probably just aren’t worth the money they put in anymore or something.
