Every once in a while, I enjoy watching an action-adventure or a suspense thriller or a fantasy/supernatural of some sort. My heart, however, belongs to realistic comedy dramas. It might be because there’s just something abut watching something in film or TV that could actually happen in real life that makes me feel all warm and nostalgic inside. Oh, no. There I go throwing the N word again. Let’s just move on to the movies I’ve enjoyed that fit this genre.
