This week's theme from Wandering Through the Shelves is comfort movies. I imagine we'll see a wide variety of choices this week since comfort will mean something different to anyone. For me, "comfort" films aren't usually my favorites. There's mostly movies I think are pretty good, but not great. But I can't help but watch them every time they're on TV.
Might as well get the weird one out of the way. If I can't decide on a movie to watch, I almost always throw this one in. I don't know why, I find it's creepiness comforting in a morbid way.
2) The Secret of NIMH
This is one of my favorite cartoons when I was a kid and we watched it as a family quite often. I watch it with my own family now, and it serves as a nice memory of home when things were normal. Plus, I always remember when we sat down as a family to watch the sequel and were all horrified at how bad it was. That was a Christmas present, and my dad actually apologized to me.
3) The Shawshank Redemption
This movie is on TV ALL THE TIME. And you'd think I'd be able to click past it. Nope, watch it every time. This is a perfect boring Sunday afternoon movie.
