For me, there are different movies for different moods. A movie can make you feel like an entirely different person and so on occasion if I’m about to go to a party and I don’t feel quite in the mood I have a selection of movies I watch to get me ready for the party. These films give me life! I have had many a good night after watching one of these before going out. So here’s my list… This is a no judgement zone ok.
The Great Gatsby: Directed by Baz Luhrmann.
This film is a party from start to finish. Based on the novel by the same name this love story transports you to the heart of the roaring 20s. What makes this film great is its style and pace. The music bounces off the walls with modern hits mixed into the 1920s style giving it a timeless feel. It’s a lavish romp with a twisted love story at the heart of it that is bound to get you ready to leave the house in style.
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off: Directed by John Hughes
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is so joyous that it’ll put you into a carefree mindset that will show you the true meaning of fun. This film is full of charisma. You follow the journey of a young guy slacking off from high school and watch what antics he gets up to during the day. His playfulness and trickster spirit will make you feel like you can conquer the world with a smile. This will have you entering the party feeling charming and energetic ready to get up to some mischief.
The Wolf of Wall Street: Directed by Martin Scorsese
This movie is perfect for a confidence boost. It’s an adrenaline fulled party fest. It’s cinema of excess at its very best. You follow a wall street broker who becomes one of the wealthiest men in the world. It’s packed with style and humour. The protagonist’s confidence in party settings is inspiring and you really can get lost in the whirlwind of the movie. The non-stop inane partying will get you pumped up and ready to go out and tare it up on the dance floor.
The Social Network: Directed by David Fincher
Although this film pitches itself about the twisted nature of the founding of Facebook it’s also a great party film. It’s got fantastic pacing, characters you can’t help but love as well as a strong focus on the social aspects of these characters’ lives. There’s lots of partying and funny fast-paced dialogue that’ll have you feeling like a million dollars. It also goes in deep and will give you the chance to question what you want to get out of your social interactions. I love a film that gives you a good time and helps you to grow.
