10 Feel-Good Classics to Binge on Netflix Now

The team at our instagram museum in Amsterdam have gone the distance to ensure that no corner of the vast Netflix catalogue goes unexplored during these times of need. This week our team recommend the best feel-good and nostalgia-filled flicks for your viewing pleasure!

1. Ghostbusters

A recent remake with some of the funniest people in comedy has kept the Ghostbusters franchise alive and well in the public consciousness. But it’s always high time to return to the original!

2. Sixteen candles

This was an instant classic of the teenage comedy genre, and one of the late, great John Hughes’ best.

One of Robin Williams’ silliest turns, this adventure movie about a magical board game and a brother and sister tasked with solving a mystery is a hit for all ages.

8. Matilda

Another magical, mischievous, and heartwarming hit, Matilda is loved by millions and has been adapted into a sell-out stage musical of the same name. One of the rooms in our Instagram museum in Amsterdam reminds us of a famous scene in this movie… can you tell which one?

9. Shrek 2

Ideally the original would have made the list, but it’s not on Netflix at the moment. Our team was divided though, because half of us love this sequel more! Jennifer Saunders as the Fairy Godmother is truly unforgettable.

10. The Karate Kid

Another feel-good coming-of-age classic of the 1980s, this one’s got laughs, life lessons, and romance, too.
