My go-to book or movie for a pick-me-up


Everyone needs a pick-me-up. Sometimes, I want something complicated and other times I just want escapist fun. My favorite pick me up movies are Galaxy Quest, Star Trek: First Contact, Ed Wood, and Dodgeball. I also like watching Singing in the Rain because it’s so upbeat it’s hard not to smile. 


My daughter really likes the movie SING. We watch that a lot.

I am currently doing a re-read of Game of Thrones. I started at one point, and lately, have been reading it again. I’m doing a lot more reading since I’ve had to start to work online. By the end of the day, I no longer want to look at a screen. I’ve also go back to my TBR and picked up a few of the urban fantasy series I haven’t caught up on in a while. And I have my growing list of audiobooks. I think I’ll try the X-files next. 

I know this is a short post. I hope you’re all well out there. I’d love to hear any suggestions for fun pick me up movies.

  1. I love all the Star Trek movies, but this one is especially great. And I hear you about not wanting to stare at a screen after staring at one all day long. Enjoy your re-read of GOT! I’ve read the first but haven’t made it back for the rest yet.

    1. In the re-read I rediscovered all the characters and subplots I’d completely forgotten about.


  2. In thinking about this, I made an interesting discovery. I have go to’s in, I think, all of the mediums. Paper books – Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter (Laurell K Hamilton) or The Twilight Saga. E-books – Rachel Morgan, The Hallows.(Kim Harrison) Movies – The Twilight Saga, after I have read the books. TV shows – Farscape. Audible – The Dresden Files as read by James Marsters. I have read, watched, or listened to these so often I know the dialog, but I still go back.

      1. Oh yes! That was my introduction to audible! James Marsters (Spike from Buffy) does an amazing job narrating. I actually love the audible better than the reading the books. I love listening to Marsters. Can’t wait for the new one, Peace Talks, coming next month.

  3. Oh, Galaxy Quest is great fun. I haven’t tried Game of Thrones (I’ve been afraid of the time commitment, TBH) but I love your list of suggestions.

    My answer is here.
