Glad to see I am not the only guy in the world that really liked Mallrats. I apparently am still the only guy in the world that really hated Heathers.

I loved Mallrats, I have it on DVD. I have Clerks & Clerks II.

2001 is a great pick-me-up for me.

Not just because of the music (some of my favorite movie-soundings of all time, that) but the visuals are absolutely breathtaking.

A lot of people are recommending what I would term "life-affirming" movies. To me they are totally different to "feel good" movies. I think The Shawshank Redemption is life-affirming, but I'd never think of it as feel-good.

Excellent suggestion, but don't watch yet it if you can't see it on Blu-Ray. The new Baraka release is easily the highest quality Blu-Ray release ever. The 65mm negative was scanned at 8K (2x digital cinema resolution) to create the digital intermediate source for the disc.

Excellent point.

Another good life-affirming movie: Green Street Hooligans

Another good feel-good movie: His Girl Friday

Love Actually is my guilty feel good movie. "love actually is really all around", corny as hell but it works on me.

Love Actually... if you can overlook that Liam Neeson is playing a recent widower.
