5 Fandom Friday: My Top 5 Comfort Movies

I missed last week, but I’m getting back into the swing of things!  Here are my top 5 comfort movies, in no particular order:

Finding Nemo

I’m a marine bio geek & have been scuba diving since I was 13, so when this movie came out it was like being under water … but all of the marine life was talking of course!  There are so many things I love about this movie & no matter what kind of bad or of down I am feeling, this one always picks me up.  Sometimes you just need to have a good cry & know it will still be okay.

The Princess Bride

This is a great movie.  Granted there is a lot that I would have preferred to see, such as female characters talking about something other than Buttercup’s love interest or upcoming nuptials.  But aside from that, it has absolutely everything else; I absolutely love this film.  Andre the Giant: Check.  The 6-Fingered Man: Prepare-to-die Check.  Amazing catchphrase: Inconceivable Check!  Snarky & handsome rogue: I’ll-most-likely-kill-you-in-the-morning Check! It’s a kissing book: As-you-wish Check!  I could go on, but this image I found on Pinterest sums it up nicely …

French Kiss

The comedy chemistry between Meg Ryan & Kevin Kline in this movie + Paris + the amazing La Vie En Rose + Jean Reno + hi-jinx = I’ve seen this movie more times than I can remember.  I tend to go for this movie when I have been disillusioned with something I really wanted & worked hard towards, but that didn’t pan out.  This movie reminds me that I still need to open myself up for something better that is coming along.

Monty Python & the Holy Grail

If you can manage seeing 10 minutes of this movie without laughing out loud & feeling better, you are simply dead inside!  I spent close to 25 minutes trying to decide on which meme or quote from this hysterical movie; not for a lack of material, but because I couldn’t decide on just one.  Finally, I decided on the physics lesson Monty Python snuck into this gem of a movie.

Addam’s Family

I have watched this countless times, but still laugh & enjoy this film every time I see it.  This is one of only two iTunes movies I own & have on my laptop.  The casting was perfect, the score was spectacular, & the rhythm of the script was just right. Morticia & Gomez are an aspiring couple: they are fiercely loyal, in love, passionate, supportive towards each other & amazing parents, too.

Honorable Mentions:

Groundhog Day
Ratatouille
Notting Hill
Say Anything


So, there you go!  Please feel free to leave me a comment about what you thought of my list &/or suggest a link-back.

      There are so many catchphrases in that movie, it was near impossible to pick one for the image. My favs include: The Knights that say Ni!, the killer rabbits, the witch trail, & the horse = coconuts.
