Sometimes you just don’t want to watch a movie based on a comic book, reboot, or three-quel. No, sometimes you just want to go back to basics and watch a classic movie. But since there are so many classic movies out there, which one should you choose to add to your Netflix queue? Thankfully, you can turn to the stars for guidance and choose a classic movie based on your zodiac sign.
Whether you’re a big rom-com fan or prefer a feel-good drama, there are a number of must-sees out there for you. But with such a long list of titles — some of which might sound unfamiliar — it’s easy to get overwhelmed with the choices. Should you make it a Scorsese or Spielberg night? Luckily, you can let your zodiac sign do the choosing for you — at least to get you started.
Here’s the classic movie you should watch based on your zodiac sign:
Since Aries is a fire sign, you naturally like movies that let you channel your aggressive and passionate energy, which is why you’d prefer a high-energy thriller like Martin Scorcese’s Goodfellas. Nominated for a boatload of Oscars and starring Robert DeNiro, the film about the high-stakes Italian American crime syndicate, aka the Mafia, is your go-to.
Taurses love to laze around on the couch and have anything light, frothy, and super funny distract them from their own reality. You’ll love the comedy Some Like It Hot, starring Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon as two musicians posing as women to escape from the mob. Marilyn Monroe co-stars and is, of course, perfect.
Geminis love anything that keeps their minds moving, so they’ll enjoy a good mystery or thriller with a twisty plot. Cue the Alfred Hitchcock classic North By Northwest, starring Cary Grant as a man who’s mistaken for a government spy.
Cancers prefer anything that is light on the drama and heavy on the glitz, glam, and feel-good vibes. If you haven’t watched My Fair Lady starring Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle in a musical version of Pygmalion, you haven’t experienced life yet.
Leos secretly (or not) dream of being the star of their own show, which is why they’ll love to catch A Star is Born with Judy Garland, hailed by many as the greatest musical of all time. (P.S. Lady Gaga will star in the remake later this year.)
Virgos prefer to be wowed by anything science fiction or, conversely, anything rooted in reality. Although Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind isn’t exactly based on true events…we don’t know if we’re truly alone, do we?
Libras love anything light-hearted, charming, and filled with love — much like themselves. If that sounds like you, then you need to check out When Harry Met Sally… and then everyone will “want to have what you’re having” (watch the movie, you’ll get it).
The mysterious Scorpio loves anything scary — from gory thrillers to cheesy horror movies — because they actually like to be scared. Which is why if you haven’t watched the Oscar-winning Silence of the Lambs yet, then what are you waiting for?
Sagittarians love, love, and also love anything related to travel and lands far, far away. They’ll adore the fantasy love story The Princess Bride starring Cary Elwes and Robin Wright, and the romance between their respective characters, Westley and Princess Buttercup.
Capricorns are secretly animation lovers. They love the flashy characters, the music, the colors, and the witty dialogue. Watch Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, and see where the Disney magic all started.
Anything that is true to life is what an Aquarius really wants to watch. They love to think while also looking at the world in a different way. Watch Sally Field in Norma Rae, a film about a North Carolina textile factory worker who becomes involved in the labor union activities, and prepare to be inspired.
Pisces are the natural dreamers of the zodiac. They love to escape their reality but also love rainbows, happy endings, and anything that puts a pep in their step. Their go-to movie is obviously The Wizard of Oz.
Pop some popcorn tonight, and enjoy taking in these classic flicks.
