How have we gotten this far without The Princess Bride being mentioned?



Setsuko Hara is my co-pilot
This is exactly what I'm after, but I've already seen that one. Any thoughts on the Korean remake? I'm kinda averse to it...

I think that my "comfort food" film (Hot Fuzz, Kung Fu Hustle, etc) might veer more silly and action-y than you're looking for.

Have you seen Alamar?



I think Predator and They Live are my go-to comfort food films, but I'm not sure if you're looking for action.

I'd also recommend The Music Man, Groundhog Day, The Wizard of Oz, Some Like it Hot, Elf, To Be or Not to Be, and The Shop Around the Corner (not sure if these have already been mentioned, but I'll mention them anyways).
