Reddit Movie Recommendations

Welcome back to the Liv Ahwatukee Apartments Blog! Sometimes you just need a moment (or a few hours) to let your mind relax. One of our favorite ways to do that? Movie night! Today we thought it’d be fun to dive into the world of online communities and see what the users of Reddit have to say about what to watch.


If you don’t already know, Reddit is a website where people can post content such as links, text posts, and images, which people can comment and vote on. The more popular the comments in the post, the more points they receive. In thinking of all the upcoming movie nights you’ll probably hold in your Phoenix, AZ apartment, we found a great Reddit thread about movies people thought were going to be good but then ended up being amazing. So, without further adieu, here are the movies that received over 1,000 points from that thread:

Over 2,000 Points

How to Train Your Dragon

Galaxy Quest

Over 1,500 Points

If you’re planning a movie night in your apartment, you’ll want to prepare by choosing snacks. Food Network has a lot of movie night food recommendations, but we love this list probably most of all: “Mini Movie Night Foods.” Check out their menu:

  • Mini Lasagnas with Sweet Corn and Mascarpone

  • Mini Sandwich Buffet: Mini Grilled Cheese and Tomato, Mini Rachael’s and Mini Spicy Patty Melts
