Since we all are locked up in quarantine because of COVID-19 terrorizing the world, we definitely have a hard time spending our time. We wonder what to do, what can be fun indoors and all. Well, I am an introvert, so it is not very hard for me to live life like this. In fact, most of the time, I stay indoors, turn on my laptop and watch movies or series. So, I would like to suggest some good movies that I like very much and I would want to recommend you guys.

PS:- These movies may not be the best or have very high ratings, but they are my personal favorite picks, which is completely unbiased. Also, it is not ranking, just the list.

Here are some best feel-good movies to watch during Lockdown

1.      The Hunchback of Notre Dame movies:

IMDb: 7/10

If you are a classic Disney nerd, you will definitely know this movie. It is kinda underrated as I haven’t seen many people talk about this. This is the story of Quasimodo, a bell ringer who lives in the bell tower of Notre Dame. This movie is considered one of the darkest Disney movies as it has adult content like religion, sin, lust, jealousy, murder, etc. But they have shown all this in such a creative way, that the young minds will not be affected badly. It is a very beautifully written story, fun at times, sad at times, and the music score is just next level. The main villain of this movie is a priest named Frollo, and NGL I used to be really scared of him haha. Thereupon, it is one of the movies to watch during a lockdown.

2.      Call Me By Your Name:

It altogether tells the story of 2 individuals: Elio and Oliver, who discover love in a short period of time, and how it affects Elio inside out. The show is aesthetically pleasing to watch with the location set in Northern Italy. The powerful acting by Timothee Chalamet and Armie Hammer, giving each one their Oscar nomination, the songs like Mystery of Love, Visions of Gideon, Futile Devices composed by Sufjan Stevens, the beautifully adapted story from the book of the same name, everything of this movie is perfect. But you better watch the ending well because I promise you all are gonna cry.

With her talent and Jackson’s support, Ally becomes a superstar. However, the peculiar side of their bond is breaking down, as Jackson fights an ongoing battle with his own inner bitterness.
