As we are spoilt with choice with content in the many different streaming services, sometimes there is a comfort in just watching something old or you have seen 100 times before. There are three movies that I always want to see when I need to escape...
Growing up we had Singing in the Rain on BTMX tape, and I have lost count of the number of times I've seen this movie. I love it so much that I own it now on Apple Movies. The story follows an actor and movie studio as it movies from the silent era to talkies. So bright and colorful, and it has so many amazing dance sequences.
Another movie we owned on BTMX is Gentleman Prefer Blondes. One of the original female buddy comedies, this movie follows two showgirls and their adventures on a cruise liner. The slapstick comedy in it is wonderful, and all the costumes are fantastic. Marylin and Jane just exude pure charisma in this movie.
If you know me well, you would know my favorite genre in anything gangster. My favorite television shows are Boardwalk Empire, The Wire, and The Sopranos. So naturally, one of my all-time favorite movies is Scorsese's Goodfellas. This epic story tells the rise and fall of an aspiring gangster.
If you haven't seen any of these movies, now is the perfect time to escape into them.
