5 Fandom Friday: My Comfort Films


Welcome to another round of "5 Fandom Friday," a writer's-block-busting initiative to build community among geeky female bloggers, spearheaded by The Nerdy Girlie and SuperSpaceChick.

"The basic idea of 5 Fandom Fridays is to write a weekly Friday blog post in the form of a top 5 list based on a predetermined topic. It'll give your readers a deeper insight into your fandoms and your blogging personality. It's a great way to avoid bloggers block and sleep well knowing that you have at least 4-5 planned posts for the month."

I'm a day late, but on target for this week's topic: Comfort Films. Going off Nerdy Girlie's post, "Comfort Films" are movies you keep going back to, over and over. And wouldn't you know it - I taught a layout on this topic, back when I was teaching Book of Me scrapbooking classes. I called it, "Everyday Movies," as in, what movies could you watch every day and never get tired of them?

Here's my layout.


The page featured a cool scrapbooking product that is now no longer available, a Paper Adventures' PageFlipper. It was like a page protector-pocket-flap that you adhered on top of the page protector, to give you extra room for photos or journaling. I used it for extra journaling in this case.


My Everyday/Comfort Movies:

  • Top Gun
  • The Princess Bride
  • Pretty Woman
  • LA Story
  • Far and Away
  • The Fifth Element

I did this layout probably around 2002-2003, so I have some addendums.

  • That was before I discovered "Firefly," so I think I would add "Serenity." I never tire of quoting it.
  • "The Muppet Christmas Carol" - I gave it to David for Christmas in 1993 (on VHS!). I think I didn't include it because we only watch it seasonally, but we watch it every year with the kids after Christmas dinner. A classic. I quote that one a lot, too, year-round.

I'm probably forgetting others, but these are a good representation. What flicks would be on your everyday list? Leave me a comment below with your list!

Other 5 Fandom Friday posts:



Ah page flippers - I'd forgotten about those!

My movies would be St. Elmo's Fire, Terms of Endearment and Urban Cowboy.
