Top 50 Movies to Watch Instead of Trump’s Inauguration

 

Well, many of us WON’T be watching Trump’s inauguration. Some will read, spend time with family, clean out clutter, pray, weep, hit their heads against the wall,  wonder what the hell happened.
And some will be watching something else.
Why not watch a movie that peacefully protests the mocking, the grabbing, the KKK parading, the wall building, cabinet choices, the Islamophobia, the homophobia… Rent, download, look through your own movie library, call friends, have a “Boycott the Bull” party and revisit a favourite flick or check out something that you’ve always meant to see.
What follows is a list of movies I highly recommend that will validate your decision and remind you WHY you AREN’T watching as Trump slithers into the White House.

  1. Might use several of those suggestions…thanks! Do have one to add though that is definitely on our schedule “Mars Attacks!”…(and I know that it’s a guilty pleasure movie…since it’s kind of awful) but it just sort of felt right…especially the grandmother cackling, “they blew up congress!” 😉
