I copied this from Wabbit’s blog (http://blog.mydapperdog.com/2011/07/movies.html). It’s right up my alley, and I hope, yours, too.
Name a movie you have seen more than ten times: Pretty much every movie I own. I tend to watch them compulsively for awhile, then just quote them!
Name a movie you have seen multiple times in the cinema: How to Steal a Million. It came out right before we moved abroad. We saw it here, on the plane on the way over, and in Paris.
Name an actor that would make you more inclined to see a film: Seriously? I am far more likely to choose a movie because an actress (Diane Keaton, Kathy Bates, Sandra Bullock, Reese Witherspoon) is in it, than I am to choose one for an actor (Bruce Willis, Sean Connery, Richard Dreyfuss).
Name an actor that would make you less likely to see a film: Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper, Martin Lawrence.
Name a film that you can and do quote from: Pretty much any film in our collection. The Godfather (of course), Legally Blonde, Rocky I-III, Slapshot, Wild Wild West, Lovers and Other Strangers, American Outlaws. “Kuzco-topia, bo-yeah!”
Name a musical that you know all of the songs and lyrics to: Pippin, The Fantastiks, West Side Story, A Chorus Line.
Name a film that you would recommend everyone see: 1776, Joe Versus the Volcano.
Ever walked out on a film? No, but once I had to leave to take my screaming, frightened sister home. . .
Name a film that made you cry: “Again, too many to name. There are commercials that make me cry.”* The Empire Strikes Back, which I saw in the theatre on my 3rd wedding anniversary, was tough. When Han was put into carbon, I burst into hysterical tears – seriously! My husband was quite surprised. . .
Popcorn? “It ain’t a movie without popcorn! Another reason to stay home and watch where the popcorn rocks and the film stops when *I* have to go pee!”*
How often do you go to the cinema? Never. Haven’t been since 1996. Really.
Popcorn? When I went, yes.
What’s your favorite film genre? I don’t really have a genre per se. Pretty much all of the films I love contain the theme of “second chances”: Emperor’s New Groove, Last Holiday, Unconditional Love, Baby Boom, Sweet Home Alabama, The Lakehouse, Independence Day, Enemy of the State.
What’s the first film you remember seeing at the cinema? Lady and the Tramp; I was 4 years old.
What film do you wish you had never seen? Seven.
If you could be any character portrayed in a movie, who would it be? Diane Keaton as Nina Banks in Father of the Bride II, or as Erica Barry in Something’s Gotta Give.
Total number of films you own on DVD: 200+
Last film you bought: Slapshot.
Last film you watched: Moonstruck, the other night with my daughter.
Five films that mean a lot to you: OMG, only five???? Overboard, Baby Boom, Father of the Bride II, Sweet Home Alabama, Klute.
