5 Fandom Friday: My Favorite Comfort Films

5 fandom 2

 

I always make it a point to watch one or two Disney movies whenever I feel sick. This is a tradition that started when I had the flu my senior year of high school. Plus [most] Disney movies make me want to bawl my eyes out, which is perfect to help clear my sinuses! The Disney films I’m listing aren’t necessarily my all-time top 5 favorites, but the ones I seem to want to watch the most when I feel ill.

1. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh is the kind of movie I like to watch when the sky is ridden with rain, but it’s also great to watch when you’re in a sickly state too. It’s a cute, easy going movie, and Pooh Bear is my favorite!

2. Up

When my nose is clogged to the point where I can’t even blow it all out into tissue, watching Up is the perfect solution! Within 10 minutes of the film, I’m already crying my eyes out and for some reason when you cry, your nose runs like it’s no one’s business. Ahh… sweet temporary relief.

3. Mary Poppins

I just want Julie Andrews to be my grandmother and feed me a spoon full of sugar after she gives me my medicine (to help it go down)(obviously), okay? Okay.

4. The Little Mermaid

You know that scene where King Triton and Sebastian are looking at Ariel from a distance near the end of the movie and King Triton tells Sebastian how much he’s going to miss her and proceeds to turn her back into a human? SO MANY TEARS. ALL THE TEARS. I seriously got misty eyed just typing all that. o__o

5. Hercules

This movie is rife with all kinds of mythological inaccuracies, and that kind of stuff usually really bothers me. But I LOVE Hercules! It’s just a feel-good movie, and I think part of it has to do with its soundtrack. “Zero to Hero” will forever be my jam.

What are your favorite comfort films? Lemme know in the comments section!
