Energetic Aries are always on the move and put passion in everything they do, so their favorite movie genre is action. Above anything, Aries natives are leaders and always ready for a superhero movie marathon. Movies for Aries: The Avengers, Black Panther, Spiderman, and U.N.C.L.E. 


Out of all zodiac signs, Taurus appreciates the past and the old ways of doing things. Taurus loves anything that relates to the nostalgia of the past and this sign doesn’t mind sticking to the classical film genre. Movies for Taurus: Gone With The Wind, Casablanca, Singin’ In The Rain, and Goodfellas. 


Natives from the sign of the Twins are very mental and always thinking, so it’s only natural that this sign loves any good mystery movie as well as thrillers. Others might have a hard time figuring out the plot, but not this swift and astute sign! Movies for Gemini: Inferno, Memento, Vertigo, and Murder on the Orient Express.                                                                                                                                                          


Forever obsessed with love, Cancer always likes a good romance movie. This sign not only likes but enjoys the emotional rollercoaster of falling in love, breaking up, and falling back in love all over again. For sweet and soft Cancer, the more tears, the better! Movies for Cancer: The Notebook, Love Actually, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and Pretty Woman. 


No one appreciates the excitement that comes with drama like Leos, so this is the perfect movie genre for this big and bold sign. And who knows — they might even find inspiration for their own life, which is always so eventful and never boring! Movies for Leo: A Star Is Born, Hidden Figures, Little Women, and Lady Bird. 


Smart Virgos are another actively mental sign that loves to learn—yes, even on a relaxing Sunday afternoon! Documentaries were made for this intellectual sign who loves everything that is actually real and fact-based. Movies for Virgo: Blackfish, Inside Job, Apollo 11, and Woodstock. 


As one of the signs of the zodiac most attracted to art in general, Libras appreciate color and creativity the most, which is why natives from this sign love animation movies. Regardless of their age, Libras can certainly have a good time. 


Most people say Scorpios love horror films, but that’s really far from the truth. As the most mysterious and street-smart sign, Scorpio loves putting clues together and everything that is dark but also cool and exciting, which is why every Scorpio likes film noirs. Movies for Scorpio: Memento, The Cricked House, Hollywood Land, and Knives Out. 


As the gypsy of the zodiac, Sagittarius loves to explore the world physically and mentally. The Archer loves any movie that has to do with adventure, especially if it involves traveling and discovering places whether they are real or not. Movies for Sagittarius: Jurassic World, Indiana Jones, Seven Year in Tibet, and Pirates of the Caribbean. 



As the most traditional sign of the zodiac, Capricorn loves everything that can stand the test of time, which is why natives from this sign love any interesting and well-produced history movie. For Capricorn, learning is part of the fun! Movies for Capricorn: Elizabeth, Darkest Hour, Gladiator, and Shakespeare in Love. 


Futuristic Aquarius natives are out of this world, and their favorite movie genre is most likely Sci-Fi! Nothing is too unbelievable for this forward-fashion and techy sign who’s mind already lives in the future. Movies for Aquarius: The Martian, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Gattaca, and Arrival. 


For these folks who spend half of their time here on Earth and the other half daydreaming, fantasy is the movie genre that suits them the most. For them, it’s not only about the costumes, but also the story as well as the magical feeling of it all. Movies for Pisces: Dumbo, Maleficent, Jumanji, and Mary Poppins.

And now you know which movies to watch based on your zodiac sign!
