Are you looking for a great movie to watch this weekend but you’re not really that excited about the newest releases? How about starting your search for a movie in a little different way? Think about what you love to do when you have a few free minutes. Do you love to take pictures, shoot a bow and arrow, search for hidden treasure or float a boat down the rapids? Then why not find a movie that features your hobby? Here’s some tips on how to find a new movie!
How to Find a New Movie
Three Tips to Help you find a weekend Movie
- Think about what you love and then do a google search. If you put in “car race + the word movie,” you’ll find everything from Fast & Furious to the Love Bug. Keep digging a little more and you may just find one you’ve never tried.
- Be informed before you push play. If language, sexual content or violence is an issue for you, then check IMDB or PluggedIn to get some reviews so you won’t be surprised.
- Get a recommendation. Check out Tastekid if you just want to find some similar movies. It is super easy to use and does not require a login. You just type in a favorite movie and click Suggest. Not only does it give you movies that are similar but it will also suggest other media options as well.
I have been working to compile a list of top movies inspired by hobbies. Right now there are over 60 movies that have been inspired by hobbies, sports or activities. Maybe you have a favorite movie that fits in one of her categories and isn’t there. I would love to add it to the list!
So check out the list and find a great movie to enjoy this weekend. And don’t forget the popcorn!
