comfort movies (you know you have them)

because this time of year I always end up watching movies I've seen 3000 times. it's comforting I guess. but over the summer I am not as tempted to watch these films as I am in the holiday season. maybe it's the cold?

feel free to contribute your own to this list. we should make it GINORMOUS and I'm sure I'm leaving some out anyway. I'm still in a daze because of the snow. somewhere, the angels are doing cocaine.

Elf

I watch this because of Zooey Deschanel. she stole my heart in this film. and it's so hokey but I have yet to get sick of it and I don't know what that says about me.

watch her here!

Love Actually

Whilst reading the Taylor Swift-dedicated issue of US Weekly yesterday, Wenli and I discovered the three of us all love this movie. but who doesn't omg. I don't think I haven't met a girl who hasn't aped over this film at some point and help me baby Jesus but I will watch it every time it comes on.



The Family Stone


I feel like this is a neglected modern day holiday classic. There are blind people and gay people and Sarah Jessica Parker just does not fit in!


I love you Claire Danes. When you appear, you are like an angel.

While You Were Sleeping

I was like five when I first saw this and instantly loved it. I probably thought, in my stupid mind, ONE DAY I AM GOING TO BE SANDRA BULLOCK AND BILL PULLMAN WILL DATE ME AND I WILL GO BE ADOPTED BY A FAMILY THAT ACTUALLY LIKES ME. I'm trying to remember the depiction of adult life I had so young. believe me, I was pretty happy about everything in that part. I was going to have a lot of dogs and adopt a Chinese kid and ride a motorcycle and be like Sandra Bullock. wow.....


she totally made the right choice. Pre-OC Peter Gallagher is like a caveman.

The Holiday

everyone in this movie is really hot but Jack Black. he's still endearing though. and if he can bag Kate Winslet in his film, THEN SO CAN WE ALL. why can't kids always be this cute?



It's a Wonderful Life

You can't beat this film. just can't.


Miracle on 34th Street

I can never make up my mind: the version with Natalie Wood or the version I grew up with?

I dislike whatever the girl is in this film. She was in Matilda? pssssh.



Natalie Wood, as a child, had more talent in her toenail than that bitch.

MOVIES THAT ARE NOT SO CHRISTMASY

The Wedding Singer

I'm pretty sure I have this memorized.

CHRISTINA TAYLOR'S CHARACTER: *throws Rubiks cube* GOD NO ONE IS GOING TO FIGURE THIS THING OUT.

Mannequin


The cheesiest 1980s movie in existence. plus you are watching Kim Cattral before she became a slut.

most Drew Barrymore films
esp. Never Been Kissed and Music and Lyrics

Maid in Manhattan or Two Weeks Notice
I confuse them a lot and I am not sure why.

MOVIES THAT WILL NOT MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD

most films about the Holocaust
Hotel Rwanda
films about kids being killed
Gigli
500 Days of Summer

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
