What Movies to Watch After Wisdom Teeth Removal?

After having wisdom teeth extracted there is some downtime while everything heals and the recovery process occurs. Perhaps you are used to a more active lifestyle and are not used to having to just sit around for several days without any strenuous activity. If this is the case you might be looking for a few movies to watch to keep you occupied. The following describes some steps to take to locate those movies to watch that perhaps you may enjoy. 

First, you may want to consider what genre movie you are interested. Different people have different tastes. Genres to consider include Action, Adventure, Animation, Biography, Comedy, Crime, Documentary, Drama, Family, Fantasy, Film Noir, History , Horror, Music, Musical, Mystery, Romance, Sci-Fi, Short, Sport, Superhero, Thriller, War, Western. After considering different genre options this may give you an idea of what you might be feeling like watching at the time.

Second, you may want to consider how the movie has performed at the box-office. A great site to do this is at Box Office Mojo where you can consider the yearly box office gross. For example, as of the time of writing this post the top three box office grossing movies of 2018 are Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Incredibles 2. Even so total box office gross does not always mean it was a great movie or even one of the best movies that year, this just reflects how many people went to theaters to pay to watch it. Therefore, you may want to look further down the list and up to around the top 50 to 100 top grossing movies of the year. Of course this also depends on your taste in genre and what you feel like watching.

Third, you may want to consider checking the IMDB rating of a few of the movies you are considering. You simply go to the IMDB website and put in the movie title at the top. Next the movie will come up on the site with additional information about when it was release and who was in it along with a rating an user reviews. For example, Black Panther currently has a 7.4 rating. The rating scale is from 0 to 10 with 10 being the best. Generally if the rating is a 7 or better it is at least a half decent movie to watch and you might enjoy it. When the movie rating starts to dip below 6.0 then the movie may have some issues and you may not enjoy it as much. Even so this is just based on what other people have said about the movie and you may have different tastes.

Fourth, if you don’t like considering top movies to watch based on box-office performance you can check out the IMDB top 250 and also see which movies have been nominated or won an Academy Award. The IMDB top 250 lists The Shawshank Redemption as number 1 currently with an IMDB rating of 9.2. The Shape of Water won the Academy Award for best picture in 2017.

Fifth, after you have a few ideas of movies in mind you can also take a minute or two to watch the movie trailer to be sure it is a good fit. You can watch movie trailers on places like YouTube and IMBD.

With the steps above you may arrive at movies to watch that generally are pretty good movies without wasting time on bad movies or trying to come up with movies to watch. Of course it doesn’t hurt to also seek opinions from family and friends. While recovering from wisdom teeth removal does take some time, you can also do your best to enjoy yourself by watching a few movies that have either done well at the box office and/or others have rated as being good.
