Loads of chat on various threads at the moment about "Back To The Future," "To Sir With Love" and other films. So, just wondered which old movies are "comfort food" to folk on here? You know, you have the odd couple of hours, just want to hit the sofa, box of chocs and a drink and chill for a bit to an old fave.
Mine include (in no particular order): "Pretty Woman" "Grease" "Dirty Dancing" "The Breakfast Club" "The Jolson Story / Jolson Sings Again" "Goodbye Mr Chips" "The Jazz Singer" (1980 Neil Diamond version) "Beaches" "Crossing Delancy" "Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope"
ETA "To Sir With Love" - forgot as I mentioned it on the top. The sequel is quite watchable too.
The Breakfast Club, certainly, and Pretty in Pink. (Got a bit of a thing for Molly Ringwald!!) Gregory's Girl and Local Hero. (Got a bit of a thing for Bill Forsyth films) Big Serendipity Brazil (Though not really a film you can chill to)
By far my most favourite film is Field of Dreams. What a masterpiece.
Interested in theatres as much as theatre, and business as much as show!
For me it's 'The Princess Bride' and 'The Court Jester' - the latter being a showcase of Danny Kaye's comedic talent, which never diminishes no matter how many times I watch it. At xmas, 'White Christmas' also comes out.
One of my favourite movies shows is funny face. I just love everything about it from the songs to the cinematography and especially Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn. Also some like it hot, the entertainer, singin in the rain, sweet charity.
