As we drift into the fall season, students are getting themselves ready for Halloween, Thanksgiving and everything that the soon-to-be cold weather has to offer. Many times, movie-lovers like to bring back their all-time favorite fall movies as a tradition to enjoy with family or friends.
When asked about her favorite fall movie, senior behavioral health major Lauren Keen pondered over the personal difficulty of the question because she adores many movies. She soon chose “Hocus Pocus” and “Halloweentown.” For Keen, the movies “bring back really good childhood memories and just make me think of like, leaves falling and just general fall vibes.”
Lilly Felman, a sophomore marketing major, is also a fan of “Halloweentown.” “‘Halloweentown’ because it’s just really nostalgic,” she said.
For sophomore biology major Grace Blanco the go-to fall movie is “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” She said it is her favorite “because it has lovely Halloween vibes and a spectacular soundtrack.”
“When Harry Met Sally” comes to Lydia Hurley’s mind when thinking of movies that remind her of the fall. Hurley, a sophomore journalism and government and politics double-major, described the rom-com featuring Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal as “really funny.” “It’s one of my favorite movies and a movie that’s special to my family,” Hurley added.
Hurley also thought of another fall-oriented movie, “Hubie Halloween,” starring Adam Sandler. She called it corny but also funny, noting that a big portion of the movie was filmed in her hometown of Marblehead, Massachusetts. “It’s funny and it has good vibes,” she concluded.
