Do you have a comfort film?

Do you have a film you always go back to that makes you feel comfy, or helps you if you're ill?

What are some of your go-to comfort films?

The Sound of Music is my ultimate comfort/pick-me-up film :gah: Though I also use The History Boys for catharsis/processing/comfort at times :yep:

I know what you mean about The Sound of Music. Julie Andrews has a lovely voice 😁

Not really. I generally can't rewatch films if I remember substantial parts of them, it spoils them for me.

I suppose I've seen Tombstone many times, so maybe that's the closest thing.
Miracle On 34TH Street (1994) and The Swan Princess.

I agree. I don't like to rewatch either and want to see something new.

I'm the complete opposite, I really struggle to get into the zone to watch something new and instead end up watching older films on repeat!

Miracle On 34TH Street (1994) and The Swan Princess.

A classic for this time of the year but it does bring about the question, when does it become acceptable to watch Christmas films...
When I was a kid going through anxiety, I watched Austin Powers: Goldmember on repeat. The Big Lebowski is the closest I have to a comfort film these days, I just love the film's irreverence, silliness and the many quotable lines and ridiculous moments.
The 2004 version of Pride & Prejudice and the first Scary Movie film

You know, I just watched Knives Out for the first time 2 days ago! Really great! Very clever writing devices and really fun performances by all the actors. You can tell Daniel Craig was having the time of his life in that role!

Harry Potter movie marathons are just a must!! Narnia films have been on my watch list for ages as it's been years since I last watched them (couldn't even tell you what happens!) so hopefully they are as good as I kinda remember! 🙂
