Movie Quarantine Chronicles: Part VI

If this is your first time reading this blog, I think it’s obvious that I like to watch movies. However, the Coronavirus pandemic washing over the globe has created a sudden drop off in the number of new movies for not just mine, but others’, viewing pleasure. As many studios are moving their blockbusters to future dates or forgoing the silver screen to the flat screens of homes, it’s difficult to find new material to write about. Given that reality, I’ve turned to the streaming services and many decades of cinema preceding us for my viewing. While I am tempted (and will) go back to familiar favorites, I challenge myself to dive headfirst into films I have never seen. Sometimes that consists of a film in the last five years, ten years, maybe forty years! For the duration of this crisis, I’ll be keeping all my fans of the quality films that I’ve seen since being stuck at home.

My “Comfort Movies”

We all have things that make us happy; something that pulls us out of the muck of a bad day or a bad few weeks. There are workouts, yoga sessions, walks in the sunlight, reading or writing. One of mine is sitting on the couch for a movie night. I recently came across a twitter post asking about our four “comfort movies” and I decided to take up that challenge.

On my library of digital movies and shelves of hard copies, there are those films that I think about instantly going to; films that I can put on at any time of the day and will never get sick of, no matter how many times I’ve watched them. Despite wanting to see new movies and chop down my watchlist, there are always those treasured classics that I can put on and it’ll instantly put me in a good mood or a better place than I was before.
