Ok, Ok, I did it because everyone else is doing it and um…I am tired. And lazy. But I am back from my lovely vacation and I am sure I will have something to say about that at a later date. Something about goth bellydancers, my first hoookah bar, teaching two year olds how to behave like rockstars, losing my luggage...stuff like that. Oh wait...I just did. Oh well.

For now it's just...

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

  2. Empire Records. Over and over and over. When we couldn't find another movie and I was tired of standing in Blockbuster in my pajamas and slippers it was always Empire Records and Mallrats.

  3. Name a movie you've seen multiple times in the theater.

  4. ET but not totally by choice. It just happened to be the only movie playing that summer.

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

  6. Alan Rickman. For a little while he only made movies with actresses that I dislike, but I saw them anyway.

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

  8. Jim Carrey. He's just not my speed. Like a lot of comedians, I suspect that he could be really good if a seasoned director reined him in. But instead, all anyone wants to see him do is his shtick, which never did much for me in the first place. I didn't see 23 or whatever it was called but I was curious about it, just to see him stretch a little.

  9. Name a movie than you can and do quote from.

  10. Blues Brothers…”Orange whip? Orange whip? Three orange whips.”

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

  12. Hrrm. That would be Grease, which is not a movie I love but rather a movie that has been forced upon me repeatedly. Now Grease 2, I love, but only because it is so…amazingly…bad. The songs are a lot harder to remember though.

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

  14. Grease 2.

  15. Name a movie you would recommend everyone see.

  16. What kind of movie do you like? Quiet movies? I liked The Winter Guest. Horror movies? I love 28 Days Later. Romance…I…um…hmmm…I don't know. Oh! Persuasion. That's a really good movie. Or Bell, Book and Candle, I love that one.

  17. Name a movie that you own.

  18. I own a decent number of movies so let's just say Move Over Darling.

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

  20. Hmmm…I don't really know what to answer for this one because I still have that Jim Carrey thing on my mind. There are a lot of comdedians that I think have turned out to be fine actors, in a way I never expected. But that's not an entirely different medium, is it? As far as singers go…the only thing that comes to mind is Jodi's choice of David Bowie…oh, how about Harry Connick, Jr? He's actually quite good. Let's just go with that.

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

  22. Yes, quite a few but the first that springs to mind is A Nightmare on Elm Street. Did you know that it was based on an article that Wes Craven found about teenagers dying in their sleep?

  23. Ever made out in a movie?

  24. Um…yes. I was rather shocked by all the people who hadn't.

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

  26. Sherri loaned me a copy of Old Boy three years ago.

  27. Ever walked out on a movie?

  28. No, but I wish I had. Almost walked out of Blue Velvet but didn't. Ah, regrets.

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

  30. Dead Poet's Society. Yeah…it doesn't now, but it did then.

  31. What was the last movie you saw in the theater.

  32. Um…jeez, I don't know. It was…I have no idea.

  33. What is your favorite/preferred genre of movie.

  34. Comedy or a movie where they blow stuff up.

  35. What is the first movie you remember seeing in the theater?

  36. No idea, it was probably a Disney movie. I do have some memory of seeing Robin Hood in the theater with a bunch of other kids. There were probably some other kids movies before that but I don't really remember.

  37. What movie do you wish you'd never seen?

  38. Blue Velvet. I have never really gotten into the David Lynch thing. I really want to like his movies but I never get past the fact that I really didn't like Blue Velvet. I liked “Twin Peaks” though.

  39. What is the weirdest movie you enjoyed?

  40. Probably The Princess and the Warrior. I knew I was going to like it because I like Franka Potente and I like Tom Twyker, but I knew that there was a graphic tracheotomy schene and that scared me a little. Turned out to not be that graphic. Loved the movie.

  41. What is the scariest movie you have seen?

  42. A Nightmare on Elm Street was pretty scary, and if you haven't seen it in a while you won't remember that it is, but it is.

  43. What is the funniest movie you have seen?

  44. Probably Shaun of the Dead.
