Great Movies to Curl Up With

Fill up a bowl with popcorn, grab a blanket and settle in for a movie session. Make It Better staffers share their favorite films to get lost in on a cold winter’s day.

“The Sound of Music”

My all-time favorite movie. I grew up wanting to be Maria — and practically achieved it with my large family who likes to go adventuring, in person or through our adventure movie outings together. Susan B. Noyes, Publisher and CEO

“Breakfast at Tiffany’s”

It is always a treat to see classic stories and dreams come true. Francia Harrington, Interim President and Chief Strategy Officer

“Scrooged”

Because Bill Murray, Bobcat Goldthwait and Carol Kane. Genevieve Lill, Editor in Chief

“Star Wars” — all of them

I’ve spent most of my life embarrassed to admit that I’ve never seen any of the “Star Wars” movies. The hype over the new film has finally given me the extra push I need, and now my husband and I plan to spend January watching all six films at home before catching the new one in the theater! Brooke McDonald, Managing Editor

“Seven Brides for Seven Brothers”

I love old movies and this happens to be my favorite musical. The barn-raising dance scene is also one of the best dance sequences ever! Heather Leszczewicz, Social Media Manager

“Little Women”

I grew up watching this movie with my mom and sisters so it holds a special place in my heart. I think of them every time I watch it. Gabrielle Tasiopoulos, Shop For Good Manager

“Star Trek” — the new series

Stars Chris Pine. Reason enough! But also, my family and I are science fiction adventure movies junkies. We’re even going to the midnight premiere of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. Emma Noyes, past intern
