Movie Meme

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

No such movie exists. I don’t rewatch movies all that much, and there are a few that I do, but more or less the same amount.

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

I saw Harry Potter and the Philsopher’s Stone twice because I went with different people. Wasn’t worth it; I don’t want to watch a movie in theatres multiple times again.

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

There are many, but I still weigh it against the likihood of a bad or boring movie. For dead people, I’ll watch anything Audrey Hepburn. For current ones, I’m inclined to Kate Winslet, Alan Rickman, Ioan Gruffudd, Daniel Craig, basically half the British actors in the world, and a few others.

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

Also many: Sienna Miller, Lindsay Lohan, Adam Sandler, Robin Williams (all his new stuff), Nicholas Cage, and to some degree, Keira Knightly though she is unavoidable and picks some good movies.

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

A friend and I quote from Monty Python and the Holy Grail a bit. Otherwise, The Princess Bride.

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

None. I know a lot of songs, but not all the lyrics to all the songs.

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

Singin’ in the Rain, Sound of Music, Les Parapluies de Cherbourg (well not really), Moulin Rouge (kinda)

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

Any movie by Hayao Miyazaki.

9. Name a movie that you own.

Roman Holiday.

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

In the past, everyone did it all so they don’t count really. As for the present, I’m sure many actors did something such as model or dance and sing before acting, but most them are well known for acting. Can’t really think of anyone that has really surprised or impressed me from their previous career. 

11. Have you ever seen a movie in a drive-in? If so, what?

No, but I would like to do.

12. Ever made out in a movie?

No, I rarely go to movie theatres.

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

The Godfather. I know. I know.

14. Ever walked out of a movie?

Yes, Titantic not because it was bad, but there was some personal emergency at the time and we had to leave. I didn’t see the ending for a few more years.

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

The Hours. I rarely cry for movies, but this one resulted in muffled sobbing in the theatre! I was not alone in this because quite a few people I know had this happen to them. There is something about this movie. 

16. Popcorn?

No, thank you.

17. How often do you go to the movies (as opposed to renting them or watching them at home)?

Rarely do I go to the movies. I usually stay at home and watch movies. It has gotten much too expensive.

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

Sweeney Todd.

19. What’s your favorite/preferred genre of movie?

Hard to say really. I seem to like a bit of everything except horror. I don’t watch many thrillers either.

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

The Birdcage. I was very young when I made that choice; I had no idea what we were doing. I regret it.

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

I saw bits of Showgirls. I did not like it. Kyle Maclachan has always creeped me out as a result.

22. What is the weirdest movie you enjoyed?

Well the weirdest movie I’ve ever seen is Alphaville, and I didn’t really enjoy it. I have been known to enjoy (more or less) French New Wave films such as Jules et Jim, Belle de Jour, etc.

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

Don’t watch scary movies. 

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

Probably Monty Python and the Holy Grail, but answer changes.
