A lot of my favorite movies are the ones with intense autumn vibes. They’re not necessarily Halloween movies, but they either are set in autumn or have a distinct autumn feeling. These movies are sure to get you into the autumn spirit!
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
This classic from Steven Spielberg is one of my all-time favorite movies. E.T. is one of those movies that many people have probably seen, but I’ll bet it’s been a while since you’ve revisited it. A well-made film that people of all ages can enjoy, I’d highly recommend re-viewing E.T.!
You can watch E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial on Peacock.
October Sky (1999)
October Sky has a powerful autumn aesthetic. However, that aesthetic is just one of the reasons this movie is as great as it is. Its uplifting message of following your dreams and shooting for the stars is inspiring and well-executed.

Wolfwalkers went underneath the radar for many people despite being nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. However, it’s easily one of my favorite animated films. Its unique and artistic animation style sets it apart for me. Not to mention, the story is very engaging and full of fun twists. I’d highly recommend this autumn-feeling animated feature!
You can watch Wolfwalkers on Apple TV+.
Remember the Titans (2000)
Yes, just about everybody has seen this movie. But autumn means football season, which means it’s the perfect time to watch Remember the Titans! I fully believe this is one of those movies that’ll never get old no matter how many times you watch it. The autumn feeling in this movie is palpable, and its message is uplifting and inspiring.
You can watch Remember the Titans on Disney+.
Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009)
Wes Anderson is one of Hollywood’s most notoriously stylistic directors. So, he decided to try his hand in animation with his film, Fantastic Mr. Fox. In doing so, he crafted one of my favorite autumn films! This movie has a distinct autumnal color palette and has more feasts and family than you can imagine! If you’re looking for animation that will entertain adults, look no further!
You can watch Fantastic Mr. Fox on Disney+.
