I'm not talking about unforgettable Academy Award winning movies that are on your list to own or watch again (for me it would be The Godfather, Slingblade, Sophie's Choice, among many, many others).
I'm talking about feel good movies--comedies or romantic comedies that didn't necessarily win an Oscar but somehow stole your heart?
I am also a fan of action or fantasy movies with some heart, that keep you hanging in there -like The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Braveheart, The new Batmans, old school Planet of the Apes- and for my husband, it would be Jaws, Alien, and Star Wars.
You see it's on the tellie and you stop to watch a minute of it, but then end up watching the whole thing.
There's just something about that kind of movie that does it for me...makes me feel lighter, a little more hopeful about humanity and love or the idea of it.....or something, I'm not totally sure.
This weekend, it was The Wedding Singer (does your significant other let you have the window seat?), but it's also been Pretty Women, Dirty Dancing and When Harry Met Sally, to name a few...
What about you? What are your favorites in this category (or others)?
