More than 3,400 titles, hand curated Reel Happiness-style. Here you’ll find ideas for the queue and browse various themes as part of building your Repertoire or working the Reel Foundations Program.

Movies in the RHMDb must earn at least High 3 Stars (Time Very Well Spent). If one does not, or if there isn’t something spectacularly useful in it that warrants the time anyway, then you’ll find it on the Other Titles page with its star rating.

While a film needs to be competent of course, filmmaking skill isn’t paramount for our purposes here at Reel Happiness. More important is a film’s usefulness in living happier and healthier in our own life. My (Lisa Elin’s) ratings are included for each film to give you a sense of its excellence in addition to its worthiness as a life model. It’ll also give you a sense of my own taste and opinion, which you can compare and contrast with your own, and find titles you’re like to enjoy.
