These are the best fall themed movies! - M Loves M @marmar

It’s been surprisingly chilly in Orange County this last week, we even had some rain, thunder and lightening! So, of course, Matthew and I got cozy and watched a few movies. I was in the mood for films that felt perfect for the fall season, so I rounded up a few of my favorites for you to check out! These give you all the cozy/romantic/magic vibes you could want in a movie. Keep reading to see my list of the best fall movies. And you have to let me know if you have a favorite you always watch during this time of year!

Fall movie nights at home are my favorite!

 The Best Fall Movies to Watch Now

Harry Potter

Magic. Gloomy weather. A castle. And that Halloween feast! Who could resist watching Harry Potter in the fall? One of these days I’m going to reread the books too. Hopefully with Augustine!

When Harry Met Sally

This rom-com set in New York is perfect for fall. The fall foliage seen throughout the movie makes me ready for the leaves to change colors here!

Dead Poets Society

Back-to-school feels and the gorgeous fall scenery are perfect for Autumn. It’s a no-brainer. 

Remember the Titans

If you are a football fan, nothing says fall like the start of football season!

St. Elmo’s Fire

This ’80s gem is set in the fall. The car rides through the leaves, family dinners, and sweaters seen through this film just screams fall.

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

This goofy comedy with Steve Martin prepares you for the craziness of the Holiday season.

You’ve Got Mail

This New York City rom-com is so beloved and I can see why. Wishing someone would give me a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils right about now!

Silver Linings Playbook

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence are so good in Silver Linings Playbook with all it’s football, Halloween, and back-to-school scenes.

Halloween Town

This Disney Channel original is a fan favorite and I totally loved it when I was a kid. I think it warrants a rewatch!

Dan in Real Life

This movie is set in Rhode Island in the autumn. What a dream!  The fall colors of the East Coast are so beautiful and this movie about family, will make you want to cozy up next to yours.


Changing weather, fall activities, and the cozy sweaters worn by Julia Roberts will make you want to bundle up on the couch.

It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!

If you are in need of a heart-warming cartoon to get you in the fall mood, look no further. This was basically an instant classic right?! I can’t wait to watch this with Augustine when he’s a bit older!

If you prefer reading to watching movies, then you have to check out my fall reading list! I’ve been working my way through it and can’t wait to share my thoughts. Let me know what your favorite movies to watch in the fall are so I can check them out!

I’ve been loving the poncho/oversized scarf I’m wearing in the photos lately. It’s just so cozy! You can see another way I styled it here!
