5 Fandom Friday: My Comfort Films

This was the most difficult 5 Fandom Friday topic yet! Comfort films are quite a nostalgic genre, and that is not an easy thing to play favorites with.

1. Start the Revolution without Me

2. Megamind

Megamind-movie-image-12Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, and David Cross have personas and expressions that turn them into animated characters already, making them especially perfect for this Dreamworks superhero satire. Brad Pitt is unexpectedly hilarious as the so-called hero.

3. Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog

4. The Hunt for Red October

5. Down with Love
