Classic movies for Sunday evening

Depending on what you face come Monday morning, Sunday evenings can be one of the worst times of the week.  You know that the weekend has come to an end, and you are then faced with the prospect of spending another 5 days working away, before the next one comes along. 

Rather than resign yourself to having a rather grey and dismal looking Sunday evening, why don’t you do something that will really pick things up? A great idea is to choose a good movie and then pop it on. Losing yourself in a classic is a sure-fire way to take your mind off of the fact that you have to face work the next day and drag the weekend out that little bit longer. 

So, where do you start? Which movies are the ideal watch for a Sunday evening? 

Face Off (1997)

Sometimes, the only way to distract yourself from the thought of what Monday can bring, is by watching some rather over the top action (not to mention acting). A great movie for this has to be Face Off. Featuring John Travolta and Nicholas Cage, there are going to be plenty of explosions and not much thinking required for this film! 

The Dark Knight (2008) 

If you want to indulge your darker mood, then one movie that you could think about is The Dark Knight. One of the most popular Batman movies ever made, this particular movie takes a look at superheroes in somewhat of a different light. Not only is the movie beautifully made, but also features some amazing actors too. Both of which mean that it is entirely possible to get sucked into the movie.

The Sound of Music (1965)

We know that musicals are not for everyone, but, if you want to watch a classic movie then this has to be up there with the rest. It might look at little out-dated now, but, there is no denying that you just want to sing along whenever you hear the songs play, not to mention you are going to be surprised by just how well you know them too! 

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007)

A slightly different take on a musical, sure, there might be music in this hit movie, but it isn’t quite as upbeat as the previous option. We love Tim Burton and we also love Johnny Depp, and we think that the dark undertones and lots of melancholy action is rather fitting for the dark cloud that might be hovering over you come Sunday night. 

The Talented Mr Ripley (1998)

Another classic movie, this one takes you back to the 1950s and the story of Tom Ripley, who, whilst on an errand to Italy finds that his task might not be as easy as he thinks it is and he ends up taking drastic measures to bring back Dickie Greenleaf. With Matt Damon and Jude Law, this is a must see for any night, not just a Sunday! 

You might not be able to take Monday away, but with these Sunday evening films you can make things that little bit easier to bear. Well, that is until you hear the alarm sounding on Monday morning!
