It has been nearly three years since I presented my comfort food movies on Netflix. I figured it was time to put together a new list to share with you kids.

These are movies that stay in your Netflix queue because you like to have them handy after a bad day. Or maybe you just know that a certain actor is lion-moistening in a specific role and you need it at a moment’s notice. These movies make you feel like you’re reuniting with a friend or they may comfort you with living vicariously through the plotline. Whatever the reason, these are my comfort food movies currently streaming on Netflix.

Keep in mind, I watch horror movies to relax.

In Bruges

Not only is this movie excellent, Colin Farrell is beautiful in it.

Chicken Run

Aardman is always good for a great movie-going experience and Chicken Run is no exception. Just pretend Mel Gibson’s voice belongs to someone less heinous and you’ll be fine.

Hot Fuzz

“Two blokes and a fuck-load of cutlery!”

Donnie Darko

There’s just something about Jake Gyllenhaal in his portrayal of Donnie that obscures the other problems with this movie and makes me feel better.

Into the Abyss

Honestly, I would listen to Werner Herzog say just about anything and be soothed, so his voice and direction with a serious look at the death penalty and incarceration is right up my alley.

Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films

Proof that the ’80s were chock full of bonkers bullshit.


This takes me back to my childhood, ahhhh.

Tucker and Dale vs. Evil

“Oh hidy ho officer, we’ve had a doozy of a day. There we were minding our own business, just doing chores around the house, when kids started killing themselves all over my property.”
