Collateral Beauty

This 2016 film made $46 million on a $36 million budget, and was panned by critics, earning it a rotten score of 15% on Rotten Tomatoes. But if you like tearjerkers, I would say it's a must-see. Here's why: This is one of those movies where you're not supposed to think too hard about things as they happen. Just let yourself go with it for two hours and enjoy some great acting by Will Smith, Helen Mirren, and Edward Norton.

Warm Bodies

Sure, you’ve seen plenty of zombie movies—but never a rom-zom-com.

  • In Warm Bodies, Nicholas Hoult plays a member of an undead tribe who begins to recruit other humans by telling them they don’t have to be afraid because he won’t hurt them.
  • It turns out that he can only survive by feeding on human flesh; luckily, Julie (Teresa Palmer) is a life-saver.
  • The movie has been described as Zombieland meets Romeo and Juliet and is based on Isaac Marion's 2010 novel of the same name.
  • Bonus: In addition to being just plain weird, it also features tons of fashion inspo for those bored with typical Halloween garb.

A Monster Calls

A Movie Where an Old Man Dies: If you’re home alone and want to be emotionally wrecked for days, watch A Monster Calls. I’m warning you that it’s not a fun movie; it deals with death, which is pretty heavy stuff when you have time to think about it. But sometimes being alone means having time to think about things like that. And perhaps it will help you figure out how best to deal with your own experiences of loss—which is always a good thing to do from time to time. Watching other people go through emotional turmoil is healthy in moderation and even necessary sometimes.

Money Monster

George Clooney and Julia Roberts star in a thriller about a man who takes hostage a financial TV show after a glitch in his trading algorithm loses him millions.

  1. The film is produced by Jodie Foster and directed by Seth Gordon, who also produced The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters. 
  2. Money Monster stars an outstanding cast including Billy Bob Thornton and Dominic West.
  3. Money Monster takes you on an exciting thrill ride with unexpected twists and turns that will keep you at the edge of your seat until it's over.

Finding Dory

Here we are again with another sequel to an animated film that came out years ago. But is it worth watching? Absolutely! The story follows Dory, a blue tang fish with short-term memory loss, as she searches for her parents. In fact, I'd go so far as to say it's just as good (if not better) than Finding Nemo. It's hilarious and heartwarming - definitely worth a watch when you're home alone on a Saturday night.

Bad Grandpa

Bad Grandpa

The first Jackass movie gave us one of our favorite characters: Johnny Knoxville's mustachioed, old-man disguise. In Bad Grandpa, we find out what happens when Knoxville takes his act on a road trip with an 8-year-old boy he never met before. Expect to laugh a lot at all sorts of taboo topics (e.g., sex) covered in hilarious detail—including some full-frontal male nudity, and language that's probably not appropriate for preteens. But it's hilarious. And you can't beat free.

10 Cloverfield Lane

After being trapped in a shelter for weeks, a woman and her fellow survivors believe they are saved by a man who brings them to his nearby bunker. However, their relief turns to suspicion when they discover that he's harboring ulterior motives. While 2016's 10 Cloverfield Lane has less of an overt sci-fi element than its predecessor, it retains much of that film's intensity and tight atmosphere; plus it adds another interesting layer with John Goodman as a survivalist with an ulterior motive. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it – but then again, isn't that what you want from your home-alone movie?

Don't Breathe

If you're anything like me, you love to snuggle under a blanket and watch a scary movie on a Friday night. That being said, my friends won't join me when I want to watch Don't Breathe. That's because it's not your average scary movie; it has an unpredictable plot and there's just something about that blind girl... If you've seen it, you'll understand why all my friends are afraid of The Blind One. It features three young criminals who decide to break into a blind man's house to steal his money. As expected, everything goes awry and they soon realize they've messed with more than they can handle!

Green Room

Green Room is one of those movies you watch when it’s snowing outside and you want something intense to cover up your blues. The film follows a punk band on tour, who unknowingly witness a murder while they’re at a gig. As they attempt to make their escape, they wind up trapped in a remote green room in rural Oregon that happens to be run by neo-Nazis; needless to say, it doesn’t go well for them. This one is incredibly violent and contains some truly horrifying moments—so if you have triggers, look out! Still, it’s an unforgettable movie with stellar performances from Anton Yelchin (who tragically passed away before he could finish filming) and Imogen Poots.

Central Intelligence

If you’re looking for a laugh, look no further than Central Intelligence. The movie stars Dwayne Johnson as a former high school football star and Kevin Hart as an accountant—both of whom were involved in a prank gone wrong 20 years earlier. The pair reunite after Johnson’s character, Bob Stone, is framed for stealing valuable technology. It’s worth watching if only to see Johnson (the Rock) pull off some surprisingly well-timed pratfalls. This one will leave you rolling on your couch with tears streaming down your face. If nothing else, it will give you an appetite for popcorn. Available to stream on Amazon Video.
