10 Movies To Watch On A Lazy Day

A list of movies for those days when a bed becomes too comfortable.

10 Movies To Watch On A Lazy Day

Imagine: a Saturday afternoon. Homework is probably not done. Friends are still sleeping from a long night out or are traveling home for a much-needed reset. So what do you do? Sit on your bed surfing Instagram? Fear not, for I have a solution: watch these ten amazing movies to cure boredom, sickness or for exploration of curiosity.

1. "Birdman" or "The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance"

My personal favorite on this list, "Birdman," is a combination of a perfect award-winning film. Take a former action hero, combine it with Broadway, romance, and action, and you get this incredible production. This film may be intense for the typical lazy day, but if you need a good film to get the mind thinking, this is the one for you.

2. "Up"

Who doesn't love "Up?" Tearjerker? Yes. But dogs, Boy Scouts, and Pixar magic make up a good film choice for that day you want nostalgia. This movie has so many funny jokes, relatable moments, and Dug (everyone's favorite Disney dog). Why wouldn't "Up" be on this list?

3. "Guardians of the Galaxy"

If anyone knows me, this film immediately makes the list. "Guardians" is one of the best Marvel films in existence. It combines the action of superhero flicks as well as 80's nostalgia through the music choices and plenty of laughs for all to enjoy.

4. "The Theory of Everything"

Again on the more powerful side but a beautiful film nonetheless. If you know nothing about Stephen Hawking's life, this film will answer so many questions and will show the power of love and science that is needed in life.

5. "Black Panther"

Seeing "Black Panther" on this list and the film just came out may appear to be a bit of a confusion. However, when this film does come out, it's a perfect film if you're in an action-film mood. While you may have to wait a few months for it to come out on DVD or streaming, it was an amazing inclusive film and a must-watch.

6. "Darkest Hour"

Like history? Like studying World War II? Like Gary Oldman (aka Sirius Black for all my "Harry Potter" fans)? "Darkest Hour," a film that won Oldman an Oscar, focuses about the life of Winston Churchill, the former prime minister of the UK. It is a brilliant film that really shines a different light on Churchill.

7. "Joyeux Noel"

I know it's past Christmas when I write this, but nonetheless, this film is a year-round classic. Based on the WWI Christmas Armistice, it is a unique film that contains three different spoken languages and a powerful message of peace on Earth during the times of conflict. Watch it with the subtitles; it'll make the film more powerful.

8. "To Kill a Mockingbird"

9. "Miracle"

In honor of the past Olympics, a sports film has to be on this list. And what better film than "Miracle," the classic film of U.S. v Russia in that powerful moment when the U.S. won the match against heavy favorites USSR? This film is a great film for sports-lovers and nonsports-lovers alike.

10. "Rent"

And of course, it wouldn't be a Jay Silver list without a Broadway touch. I went with "Rent" here because "Rent" is one of the better broadways to film adaptations. Plus "Rent" is an iconic piece of work and a great film to watch when people need a good film to sing to.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
