Simple question: what are the most uplifting films in cinematic history? The movies that make you la la just thinking about? The cinema stories you take pride in turning to when, mamma mia, things are all askew? Whether they inspire, delight, excite or calm you, list the ten most wonderful films that will never, ever let you down. The movies you’d happily isolate yourselves with, because they always seem to bridge the social distance. One person’s comfort movie is another’s twisted, dark thriller, so let’s be clear, babe: the films we are looking for in this Showdown are the ones that make you feel, above all else, happy. And because connection is important, we’ll plan a synchronized watch of the most-mentioned film.
