It's the holiday season and that means days off from work, school, and possibly contagious diseases. Do you remember being home sick, on the couch, or n bed, and watching TV in between doses of Nyquil or Theraflu?

Even when I am not sick, but want to watch something comforting and familiar I turn to these movies:

At the top of my list is "The Princess Bride". It has been my favorite movie since childhood. Romance, action, comedy – what more do you need?

Since it's the holidays, my favorite is "Miracle on 34th Street" – in B&W, not Technicolor. I also love "Arsenic and Old Lace".

When I want a great action flick, I turn to Captain Tightpants and "Serenity".

If I need a good cry I watch "What Dreams May Come".
