I stole this from Wandering Through the Shelves because I love this week's theme.
I have lots of comfort films--movies I could watch over and over and over and over without ever getting tired of them. Some are just general comfort films, and some are watched for specific reasons. I'll start with the general all-purpose comfort films.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
I LOVE Star Wars*. And this episode is definitely my fav, followed closely by A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back (I tend to get bored halfway through Return of the Jedi; The Phantom Menace is ok I guess; The Clone Wars is a f**king mess; and the first half of Revenge of the Sith is garbage, but the second half is alright I guess).
We recently ordered a voice-controlled BB8 for the office. Videos shall be posted forthwith. BB8 is the best in the world ever.

......anyway, moving on...
Everything about this movie is perfect.
The Princess Bride
I can actually recite this entire movie from start to finish.
O Brother, Where Art Thou?
All the Coen Brothers films are amazing (except Burn After Reading, which is trash), but this one is my fav.
Now some comfort movies for specific occasions:
Christmas - Harry Potter Number 1
I'm not sure when or why this became our family's Christmas movie, but for some years now we always watch it after Christmas dinner.
If I am super duper sick and bed-ridden (which does not occur often), I am probably watching one of two films.
(if you've never seen this, you need to immediately)
Death Becomes Her
Worth watching for Isabella Rossellini alone.
What about the rest of y'all? What are your comfort movies?
*For some reason, most people are extremely surprised by this.
