Movie meme

Seen on various blogs, stolen from the delicious David Turner.

1.Name a movie that you have seen more than 10 times.

Ghostbusters, The Princess Bride, Shrek, Singing in the Rain, Independence Day

I love re-watching fun films.

2.Name a movie that you’ve seen multiple times in the theater.

Mary Poppins - when I was young. And Star Wars IV, when I was less young.

3.Name an actor that would make you more inclined to see a movie.

Dustin Hoffman

4.Name an actor that would make you less likely to see a movie.

Will Ferrell.

5.Name a movie that you can and do quote from.

The Princess Bride ("Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya...") or Rocky Horror ("I didn't make him for you!") or Serenity ("God, god, we're all going to die") or "This is Spinal Tap" ("It goes up to 11") or any Marx Brothers movie.

6.Name a movie musical that you know all of the lyrics to all of the songs.

Singing in the Rain

7.Name a movie that you have been known to sing along with.

Singing in the Rain, Mama Mia - I have no shame.

8.Name a movie that you would recommend everyone see.

Um um um ... no idea. Disney's "Beauty and the Beast"

9.Name a movie that you own.

Really? Any one? I mean, there are so many ... "Hero"

10.Name an actor that launched his/her entertainment career in another medium but who has surprised you with his/her acting chops.

All the best ones have been done - Sinatra was amazing - but how about Mike Reid? Originally a stand-up and stuntman (well, for two films).

11.Have you ever seen a movie in a drive-in?


12. Name a movie that you keep meaning to see but just haven’t yet gotten around to it.

Lots of them. Shawshank Redemption.

13.Ever walked out of a movie?


14.Name a movie that made you cry in the theater.

I'll blub at anything. Wall-E.

15.What’s the last movie you saw in the theater?

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Ice Age 3 before that.

Action adventure.

17.What’s the first movie you remember seeing in the theater?

2001: A Space Odyssey

18.What movie do you wish you had never seen?

None really, if I get bored I turn them off.

19.What is the weirdest movie you enjoyed?

I Heart Huckabees - loved it. Philosophical conflict.

20.What is the scariest movie you’ve seen?

Tricky, I've blanked them all out. "Aliens" the first time I saw it I suppose.

21.What is the funniest movie you’ve seen?

That's hard. I'll have to go with "Duck Soup".

What's on the turntable? Silence due to doing this ina clandestine fashion at work

Mmmm... Dave...

Will Ferrell is cropping up a lot in this meme. But, I must admit, I constantly go "Oh, not a Will Ferrell movie" and then proceed to laugh like a drain for the next hour and a half.

And "Stranger Than Fiction" is quite moving.

"2001"? That would be soooo cool to see at the cinema. But they don't show the oldies any more!!!

They do at our local Cineworld... though not 2001 yet. This week they're showing "The Blues Brothers". (I like that one too - seen it zillions of times and I know all the words.)

In fact I watched "Bewitched" on the telly last week and, to be honest, it wasn't as bad as I was expecting. I quite liked it - but I'm very forgiving with films.

(Oh I've filled in the two questions I missed and changed it to "David".)

Ooh, no problem with the mmmm... Dave.

Was merely doing a Homer impression. Which is fine when I'm doing the voice in my head but probably lacks something when I type it out...

Good choices. Wall:E was very tear inducing, was it not?

I quite like Will Ferrell, you know. Anchorman is amazing, and I even sat through that dreadful Melinda and Melinda because he was good in it.
