The Movie Compass Blog

The purpose of this blog is to identify movies by the direction of the story - is it going up or does it go south. Does it have a hopeful, positive or uplifting message or does it leave you frowning and hopeless. So we're compiling two lists, the North list and the South list.

Here's what I have so far, please leave your suggestions with a movie title and if it goes North (up) or South (down).


The Boy Who Could Fly Parasite

In Your Eyes, Joss Whedon

The Magic of Belle Isle – Morgan Freeman

Storm Boy – Geoffrey Rush

The Very Thought of You (1998)

The Man in the Moon – Reese Witherspoon

Before We Go

Song Catcher

King of California – Michael Douglas

Local Boys – Mark Harmon

Donovan’s Echo – Danny Glover
