Chopper was my first lesson in the vast difference between myth and reality.

Alex recently sent me an article about comfort movies and while I have a list on my sidebar of my top 100, the idea of scaling it down to 10 is borderline impossible. It really depends on my mood, you know? But I tried.

Also, I had 5 honorable mentions but my dad is right, that's totally cheating. ;) So here it is, in alphabetical order. (And I feel totally unoriginal now, btw!)

All About Eve


Bridget Jones' Diary


Kicking and Screaming

L.A. Confidential

Party Girl

Stand By Me

Streets of Fire

When Harry Met Sally

For the record, my dad's were

Nobody's Fool
That Thing You Do!
Oliver's Travels
My Night at Maud's
Babette's Feast
Miracle on 34th Street
My Dinner with Andre
The World of Henry Orient

And Alex's were:

Strange Days
Blade Runner
Beautiful Creatures (2000)
Chungking Express
Into the Night
Lethal Weapon
The Lost Boys
Subway (1985)
The Thin Man

And Veloute's were:

Wrath of Khan
Eat, Drink, Man, Woman
Miracle on 34th St
Lord of the Rings
Firefly (I tried to leave this out b/c it's a TV series, but I see Oliver's Travels, so I feel justified!)
The Matrix
Watership Down
Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

(She wasn't sure about the 10th spot, but Priscilla seemed to be winning.)

Aaaaaaaargh, I forgot Party Girl! Damn. Well, maybe it goes on a diff top-ten-comfort-movies list. (I'm telling you, diff top tens for diff moods. Ten is hard!)

Hee hee. What a fabulous reindeer sweater.

I totally want to add Bridget Jones' Diary. But I don't want to take anything off my list. Oh, and LA Confidential. Damn.

Vel: Hey, I hated not being able to put Watership Down on mine!! But there is no rooooooooom!
