my kind of vibe

These are films I love to live inside/vibe with where I can forget about the narrative and just enjoy the times with these characters.


Lot's of hangout flicks, noirs, drunk protagonists, ensembles, and bangin tunes. Altman is kind of the goat at doing this and for some reason the two Hitchcock's here I just love as hangout flicks.


Fellowship of the Ring is on this list not just because it's my favourite film of all time but mainly because no world has been better brought to life on film and let's be honest... those 30 minutes or so spent in the Shire on its own is one of the greatest hangout films of all time.


Some seemingly worthy flicks miss this list if A) I'm not a huge fan of it or B) It's for some reason too serious/depressing for me.
