10 Good Movies To Watch When Bored


Picture this: It's Sunday evening. You're dressed in a cotton pajama set comfortably lounging on your bed, which is outfitted with lightweight linen sheets in an attempt to ward off the summer heat. The window is open, letting in a balmy breeze that's keeping you somewhat cool. There's even a chilled bottle of rosé in the fridge just waiting to be opened. You're all set to have a perfectly lazy Sunday night—the only problem is you don't know what movie to watch.

Rather than aimlessly scrolling through Netflix the next time you're at a loss for what movie to stream on a Sunday night, take a peek at MyDomaine editors' queues for some serious watch-list inspiration. Spanning heart-warming romantic comedies to cult classics everyone should see at least once and fast-paced thrillers that'll have you on the edge of your seat, here are 10 good movies to watch when you're bored. So go ahead—pour yourself a glass of wine and settle in for the evening.


Keep scrolling for a definitive list of the best movies to watch when you're bored.

1. It's Complicated

10 Good Movies To Watch When Bored


"This is such a feel-good film. The plot isn't too complex, but watching Meryl Streep's character deal with her hilariously complicated relationship with her ex-husband, played by Alec Baldwin, is the perfect addition to a lazy weekend afternoon."

2. 13 Going on 30

"A true classic, this heartwarming, nostalgic movie never ceases to entertain me. Jennifer Garner is simply adorable as she plays a girl trying to figure out how to be an adult in New York City. Plus it has a perfectly timed 'Thriller' dance sequence, in case you needed another reason to watch this coming-of-age rom-com for the umpteenth time."

3. How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

 "I never get tired of this movie. Kate Hudson + Matthew McConaughey = rom-com gold."

4. Lion

I recently watched this film on the plane and was completely reduced to tears by the end. It's an incredible real story about an Indian orphan who is adopted by an Australian family, and years later tries to find his mother and brother with only his memories to guide him."

5. Fight Club

"I'll never grow tired of this cult classic. Every time I watch it, I notice something new. I also feel like it's the perfect 'reset button' for reevaluating your priorities from time to time."

6. Midnight in Paris 

10 Good Movies To Watch When Bored

"This movie came out just before I moved to Paris for grad school, so it will always have a special place in my heart. If ever I want to reignite that wide-eyed wonder I had for the city or validate my choice of becoming a writer, this film is nothing short of perfection. It also happens to be my dad's favorite movie, so it's a great choice to queue up for a family night in over the holidays."

7. Sixteen Candles

"I turn to John Hughes's classics whenever I'm looking for a feel-good pick-me-up. This movie is one of my all-time favorites (and Say Anything is a close second)."he holidays."

8. Oldboy

"I think Park Chan-wook is one of the most talented directors of our time. This chilling thriller is an excellent introduction to his work."

9. Sour Grapes

 "I randomly watched this American crime documentary on counterfeit wines last winter, and it kind of blew my mind. It follows the investigation of one mad scientist/wine savant type who was investigated after reportedly making over $35 million after selling rare counterfeit wines at high-end auctions in a single year. It's oddly fascinating."

10. The Big Sick

"Full disclosure: I had to google the Rotten Tomatoes rating for this one because I watched it on a plane, and my perception of a movie's quality tends to be very skewed when I'm 10,000 feet in the air. But since it was rated 98% fresh, I knew I was right this time around. The Big Sick is what all rom-coms in 2017 should be: heartwarming and touching, but also realistic and intelligent. The movie follows the real-life love affair of comedian Kumail Nanjiani and Emily Gordon—along with all the challenges of modern love and cross-cultural differences many millennials face today. If you liked Master of None, you'll love this movie."
