Memories of Childhood

I had the biggest desire to watch the Wizard of Oz yesterday....

I remember when I was little, and they used to show it around Christmas every year...me and my sister used to cuddle up in my moms bed, and watch it on their tv. I would hide under the blankets at the part where the witch's fingers were electrocuted by the shoes...it scared me.

Of course ive seen it a hundred times, but it makes me feel cozy....like curling up beside a huge fire with hot chocolate and popcorn.....Of course since I am in the midst of packing my life up, again...for the 6th time in 2 years, I dont have it here with me, its at my parents house...so I didnt get to watch it.....

Whats your comfort movie?

I used to be afraid of the flying monkeys in that movie.

I would say that my comfort movie is "The Natural" my Dad and I used to watch it fairly often when I was growing up.

I have a few go to films in case of emergency. They are in no particular order: The Back to the Future trilogy, the first and third instalments of Indiana Jones (not the second), Any Marx Brothers film, and Grosse Point Blank. Man On Fire is slowly rising on my list (but only when I'm really angsty and need to see horrible things happen to the bad guys).

KT - I didnt know that it was up twice. I have to stop tab browsing....its bad for blogging...

Scott - Whats the natural??

Amichai - I LOVE grosse point blank, and I remember seeing the third indiana jones at the theater...I agree with you on that one.

Rawbean - I didnt realize that this posted twice, and I saw that Grease was your comfort movie...You can recomment if you wanna

Miss Ash said...

I love the last unicorn cartoon :)

I remember when i was younger my parents would rent one of those video projectors from the library. Like the ones they had in school with the film on a reel. We would set it up on a wall in the living room and my mom would make rice crispy squares.

Princess Pessimism said...

Miss Ash - You guys should do that now....of course you'd have to take down one of the 800 mirrors in their house, but it would be fun...except with your mom's no feet on the furniture rule, you cant really get comfy....LOL!

rawbean said...

Yea Grease...thanks for acknowledging me.

I like Amichai's picks too.

Pheebs said...

I must be the only person who's never seen that movie...don't even ask, because I have no idea how that happened!

AND I don't have a comfort movie...what's the matter with me?!

Trib said...

Apocolypse Now. Actually, that's just what I'm watching right now. Redux. Actually, lemme go with Anchorman.

An ex of mine loved the Wizard of Oz. I'm sure you've watched it with Darkside of the Moon as well as heard the story of the guy who hung himself in the woods.

Phil said...

I love blogs that ask a question. My comfort movie is The Princess Bride. Funniest movie ever hands down.

Sexy Suburbanite said...

Oh! You should see the play "Wicked." You'd like it.

Princess Pessimism said...

Rawbean - Aww...of course I acknowledged you...why wouldt I have. LOL!!!

Pheebs - Youve never seen the qizard of Oz??? Oh my god...Although, people react the same when I tell them ive not seen Titanic.

Trib - Ya, I did watch it with the DSOTM album...it was kinda cool actually.

Phil - I LOVE That movie, and everytime I see it I want to buy it, but never have...I should though, because it would be on the top of my list for sure.

Sexy - Ya, when the book came out forever ago, I wanted to read it...and then I saw the play was coming out, and wanted to see that too....I have picked up the book a number of times, im not too sure that I like his style of writing, but I want to read it for sure.

Px said...

ok weird picks...love actually always makes me feel good, like there's a happy ending everywhere
and
night of the living dead, it's just something that i ALWAYS go back to watching. i'm talking the original (extended & digitally restored) version here, not the crappy 90's remake. although it's not got the happy ending, it just makes me laugh and i enjoy it so much

Princess Pessimism said...

PX - I totally agree with love actually....the music in that movie even makes me feel good....

rawbean said...

I think it's cute that px picked a british movie...awh.

berly02 said...

Hummmm . . . there are so many good movies to choose from.
But my comfort movie is An Affair to Remember. I have the best memories of my mom and I watching it together and bawling our eyes out. Then having coke floats under a huge blanket on the back porch when the temperature is almost freezing.

Princess Pessimism said...

Rawbean - LOL!!! Ya, I suppose so. But Love Actually is a REALLY good movie. Its one of two girlie movies that I absolutely LOVE...the other is Amelie.

Berly - Aww....that sounds cute....but why were you sitting outside watching it?

Jennifer said...

I know this is really gay, but I love The Sound of Music, I used to watch it every time I was off sick from school when I was a kid. At one point, I could recite the whole movie start to finish.

Princess Pessimism said...

Jennifer - Ive not seen it, I dont usually like movies with singing as a general rule....wizard of oz, and the muppets are my exceptions

Tai said...

Mine was always the old "Christmas Carol" with Alistair Sims.

The sight of him prancing around singing never failed to bring tears of joy to my eyes!

Lindsey said...

I'm the same way with all of those classic movies. I especially love all the "Charlie Brown" holiday specials. Brings back so many memories.

And Kay Kay...I watched it plenty growing up thank you very much.

Princess Pessimism said...

Tai - REALLY??? Christmas Carol? Ive not seen the original one, only the muppets one. LOL!!!

Linny - OHHH, I like the Great pumpkin, and the garfield halloween special with the pirate...LOL!!!

slopmaster said...

I like Jerry Maguire as my comfort movie.

So can you see the dead dwarf on the video still?

Princess Pessimism said...

Slop - REALLY? I dont like that movie all that much. Its okay, but its not my favorite

Ive seen where its supposed to be, but I dont know, who knows if its true
