Revgalblogpal Friday Five: Comfort Media Edition

Today's RevGalBlogPals Friday Five was written up by me:

I don't get to watch that much tv anymore, but I actually wrote today's Oprah show down on my calendar. Why? Because she is hosting a Sound of Music cast reunion!!! Those of you who know me may be surprised that I would care so much about such a stereotypically girly flick, but I love it (although admittedly fast forward through the Reverend Mother's rendition of Climb Every Mountain). I can watch this movie over and over and over again.

It seems no matter how many new movies, tv shows or books come down the pike I still have my ol' stand by favorites that I can watch/read over and over and when I do they actually bring me comfort - like an old sweatshirt or a favorite food.

Today's Friday Five is an opportunity for you to list five of your favorite 'go-to' movies/tv shows/books. You can use images, links, explanations or netflix.




So... since I have already outed my Sound of Music love, here are a few others in no particular order:

I know, right? Notting Hill is for when I think love has a chance. Love Actually has been my go-to when I really needed comfort.

Me too, love Love Actually--favorite Christmas movie but then a guilty pleasure because it would be one I'd NEVER want my mom watching with me.

Oh and I have watched Notting Hill simply for the scene where what's his name takes a walk and four seasons go by. Love that. And the sicko Scottish roommate.

I've always meant to watch "When Harry met Sally!" Maybe this will spur me on.

Memories. . . .those movies are fun. I might be able to do this FF if I just put movies up. Thanks.

Good choices! It's been years since I read Prayer for Owen...I think that means I need to reread it!

Oh, A Prayer for Owen Meany. I have to say that although I loved the book, it makes me sad. And I adore Love, Actually. Nice list.

Wendy said...

Friends and Love Actually. Yeah.

APFOM made my list as well, but Mamma Mia edged out Love Actually! Good list.
