A Movie Meme
Name a movie you have seen more than 10 times.
I've seen Horse Feathers more than 10 times in 2007 alone, how about that?
Name a movie you've seen multiple times in the theater.
Lots. I saw Legends of the Fall seven times in the theater, and Lilo and Stitch five.
Name an actor who would make you more inclined to see a movie.
Hugh Jackman. Yum...
Name an actor who would make you less inclined to see a movie.
No one jumps to mind, honestly.
Name a movie that you can and do quote from.
There are a few standby films in my quote repertoire - Ghostbusters and Airplane! probably top the list. Top quotes include:
- "I love this plan, I'm excited to be a part of it!"
- "That's incredible - you can't see these can you?"
- "Get her? That was your plan?"
- "Okay, so, she's a dog."
- "No, that's just what they'll be expecting us to do."
- "I am serious, and don't call me Shirley."
- "And that, more than anything else, led directly to my drinking problem."
Name one, and I probably know it.
Name a movie you have been known to sing along with.
Pretty much any and all Disney movies.
Name a movie you would recommend everyone see.
Horse Feathers. Duh.
Name a movie you own.
I own tons of movies. The one I watched most recently was A Day at the Races.
Name an actor who launched his/her entertainment career in another medium but who has surprised you with his/her acting chops.
Will Smith, all the way. I think he's amazing. Parents just don't understand.
Have you ever seen a movie in a drive-in? If so, what?
The one I remember best was a double feature: Se7en and Twelve Monkeys. Boy did I have nightmares that night...
Ever made out in a movie?
Actually, no. Nor do I want to, really. If I want to make out, there are more comfortable (and more private) places to do so. And for most of them, I wouldn't have to pay $9.50 for the privilege.
Name a movie you keep meaning to see but just haven't gotten around to it yet.
There are so many that none even come to mind.
Ever walked out of a movie?
Yeah, twice: Il Postino (because both Mom and I had literally fallen asleep) and Wyatt Earp ('cause it was boring like you wouldn't believe).
Name a movie that made you cry in the theater.
Tough to pick just one - I'm a sucker for a good tearjerker. The most infamous instance, within my family anyway, is The Man From Snowy River, where I suddenly burst into sobs so loud that half the theater jumped out of their seats in terror. Mom and Seeser can back me up on this.
What's the last movie you saw in the theater?
Wow, beats me. Happy Feet, maybe?
What's your favorite/preferred genre of movie?
I'm a fan of the silver screen classics.
What's the first movie you remember seeing in the theater?
I remember seeing Beetlejuice when I was five and having horrible nightmares for the next week.
What movie do you wish you'd never seen?
No question about it: The Big Lebowski. And the sad thing? I've seen it twice.
What is the weirdest movie you enjoyed?
The MST3K movie is pretty weird, but I love it anyway.
What is the scariest movie you've seen?
For all that it's cheesy, The Ring scared the crap out of me.
What is the funniest movie you've seen?
Hmm, let's see, Horse Feathers? ;)
Feel free to steal this for yourselves. For me, I'm off to lesson plan for tomorrow and then get to bed early. And by "early," I mean before 3am.
