Look, with all the bad news going on at the moment (international virus outbreaks, renewed bushfire threats and flash flooding), it's little surprise that Twitter users are looking for any possible way to lift each other up.Ā 

Even if it's just through the power of cinema.

Prompted by Prime Video's Twitter account, social media users have been sharing the movies they turn to when feeling down.

The results are eclectic to say the least, proving once and for all that movies (particularly feel-good movies) are subjective.

That's the best part. There are are no wrong answers!

"The Princess Bride," one user replied. "Idk it just gets me every damn time."

Another replied: "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Because no matter how bad it gets, at least Iā€™m not being chased by a guy wielding a chainsaw."

Other popular answers included Life of Brian and Shaun of the Dead.
