I'm not talking about movies you think are the greatest film of all time. I'm talking about movies that for whatever reason, if you're flipping through the channels or if you're bored on a sunday afternoon, you decide you wanna stop and watch this film. My main definition of a movie like this, and this may sound confusing, but a movie you can fall asleep to. I'm not talking about a movie that puts you to sleep because it's so boring. I mean, a movie that you're so comortable seeing, a movie you're not worried about falling asleep to because you know exactly what comes next. A movie you're so used to seeing, it just puts you at ease, is great "background music", and can entertain you whenver it's playing.
I've got a ton of films like this, and each year it seems I get a new one.
The newest one for me, seems to be Bernie. It's such a fun and "harmless" and entertaining movie, I only saw it for the first time about two months ago, but already I know it's gonna be one of those films.
To add to the list:
Romy and Michele's High School Reunion
Wet Hot American Summer
Air Force One
The Shawshank Redemption
The Count of Monte Cristo
The Time Machine
The Young Sherlock Holmes
Joe vs the Volcano
and I've got a ton more, but this is just a brief list.
