Best TV & Film Watches for Autumn

6 September 2019



Hello Readers & Friends,

OKay, it's September. I'm allowed to get excited for my favourite time of year - Autumn.
I thought I'd do a post of all my favourite films & series to watch this time of year so you can choose which to add to your watch list :)

TV

Gilmore Girls

I know that for a lot of people Gilmore Girls is a winter show because of the emphasis on snow (why do they never do a Gilmore Christmas episode? I would love that!) But for me I always think of the Stars Hollow Autumn Festival. The colour palette in this show is very warm and autumnal and I just love it. Forever one of my favourites.


 

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

A remake of Sabrina the Teenage Witch with all the horror and gore we wanted the first time round. Very Halloween-y, it's based on Sabrina, a half-witch, navigating her magical life and her normal life. It's dark and creepy and at parts, scary, and draws a lot on wiccan culture and the autumn equinox which I just love. I'm almost finished on the first season and really, really enjoying it.


  


Freaks & Geeks

I think it's just the plaid shirts and the fact they're always outside in this show that gets me. It's one of my all-time favourite shows, I'm so gutted that they stopped after only one season! Greatest thing to grace 90s television. And it's set in the 80s, which I love.




Stranger Things

Speaking of the 80s, obviously Stranger Things has to be mentioned as it has that creepy Halloween monster vibe that I love, and the characters are always dressed for Autumn. Plus, they have the amazing Halloween scenes where the boys all dress up as Ghostbusters, which is just perfection.


Buffy the Vampire Slayer

I just discovered Buffy is available on Prime, so that's where you'll find me for the next two months. Catching up on my favourite 90s fantasy show. The OG vampires are back! Hello, Sunndyale.


 

FILMS

Harry Potter & The Philosopher's Stone

The first HP is obviously set in September when Harry goes off to school. Again, there's a lovely rich colour palette and Harry wears plaid shirts and there are scarves and everything just seems so autumnal when he's walking through Hogwarts with the fallen leaves. I love it.




Coraline

I hated this the first time I watched it because I thought it would be a fun, happy Pixar-style film. Actually it's a terrifyingly creepy Tim Burton film about a girl called Coraline who gets trapped in this alternative reality. It just makes me think of Halloween because of the cat and all the horror-style scenes. I only watch it once a year, and it's in October always.

Fantastic 

Mr Fox

I just love Wes Anderson, and Fantastic Mr Fox is almost the only autumnal film he has directed contrasting his usual pastel summer palettes. A quirky retelling of the Roald Dahl classic.


 

Isle of Dogs

Yeah, I said almost becasue he released Isle of Dogs last year and it was amazing. Again, a warmer colour palette and I just loved how funny it was with it's classic dark humour and cinematic photography. Following a young boy looking for his lost dog.

  
Where the Wild Things Are

I think the only reason I think of this as an autumnal film is because it's set in the forest. It could also be a Christmas film for some people, I'm not sure. But I thought I'd include it just in case you guys haven't seen it yet and wanted to check out the trailer :)






Bridge to Terabithia

Yeah, this film broke my heart and everyone else's too. I cried so hard the first time I watched it because who was ready for the twist?!  Not me. But again, the way they dress and forest setting just gives me all the autumn vibes.


Let me know you what your favourite watches are.
Love,
