The Comfort Food of DVDs

So I like to have movies on in the background when I’m crafting but they generally have to be movies I both like and have seen a million times. I once had a friend come over and ask:

Her: “What do you do with all these DVDs?”
Me: “What do you mean? I watch them.”
Her: “You rewatch movies?”
Me: [Stunned Silence.]


  • Tristan & Isolde – Mmmm James Franco mmmmm.
  • In the Line of Fire – One of my all-time favorite movies. Unfortunately it appears to be time for a new DVD as this one kept mysteriously skipping scenes!
  • Three Days of the Condor – An old espionage favorite. I love her photographs.
  • The Other Boleyn Girl – The only one I hadn’t seen before (I needed a break in my crafting!). I remember this getting seriously panned but I thought it was decent. Portman and Johanssen really playing against type here.
  • Chariots of Fire – Oh Yes. Watching this counts as exercising, right?


  • Garden State – Music and laughter.
  • Laurel Canyon – Music and angst. And Alessandro Nivola being very sexy.
  • Iron Man – RDJ has never been more fun.
  • Hot Fuzz – This will never get old.
  • Point Break – How can you watch Hot Fuzz and NOT follow it up with Point Break? But in all seriousness, this might be my favorite movie of all-time. And it is definitely my favorite Keanu movie of all-time.

And I’m off to the theater to see Avatar today. I actually think the previews make it look really, REALLY DUMB, but Steve keeps SWEARING it’s good and Carlos suggested it. So we’ll see.

  1. dude Jacob had the same reaction to the previews, but after reading all the reviews, we totally got IMAX 3D tix for the day after Christmas.
    and um, I’ve never seen Point Break. I think I’m going to see if it’s on Netflix Watch it Now right now.
