Tuesday, March 13

So moved

I kind of knew when I woke up at 5:30 this morning with a raging headache that today was not going to be my favorite Terrible Tuesday ever. And thus, you get the following, taken directly from BunkoSquad. (Also because I like movies. And answering questions.)

1. Name a movie that you have seen more than 10 times.
Some Kind of Wonderful. Newsies. Ghostbusters. Princess Bride.
2. Name a movie that you’ve seen multiple times in the theater.
Newsies. I won't say how many times.
3. Name an actor that would make you more inclined to see a movie.
Peter Sarsgaard. (Not many have seen it, but the Center of the World is really good.)
4. Name an actor that would make you less likely to see a movie.
Catherine Zeta-Jones. She ruined Ocean's 12. Okay, it wasn't that good to begin with, but still.
5. Name a movie that you can and do quote from.
Like Michael, I love to quote movies. Some Kind of Wonderful may be my most frequently quoted, just because "That explains a lot about you, Ray," comes in handy so often. Also, "It's good to want things," but that's from a different movie.
6. Name a movie musical that you know all of the lyrics to all of the songs
Sound of Music.
7. Name a movie that you have been known to sing along with
The above. Also, West Side Story. I feel oh, so pretty. And, fuck, yeah, Newsies, too.
8. Name a movie that you would recommend everyone see.
Like, a quality movie? That's tough. I like so many bad ones. How about On the Waterfront?
9. Name a movie that you own.
Just one? My Man Godfrey.
10. Name an actor that launched his/her entertainment career in another medium but who has surprised you with his/her acting chops.
Mandy Moore? Seriously, Mark Wahlberg is the best answer I can think of.
11. Have you ever seen a movie in a drive-in? If so, what?
Not to my knowledge. Update: According to my dad, he took us to the Miracle Mile Drive-in when I was a kid. He remembers it as being "some Barbra Streisand movie." Probably the Main Event, considering the time frame.
12. Ever made out in a movie?
No! I'm here to watch a movie, people. Making out comes later. I'll hold hands with you. Maybe.
13. Name a movie that you keep meaning to see but just haven’t yet gotten around to it.
Ray. Haven't been in the mood.
14. Ever walked out of a movie?
No. Wished I had, but I never could do it.
15. Name a movie that made you cry in the theater.
Really, this isn't a difficult task. Dead Man Walking made me sob, though, and I think that's an accomplishment.
16. Popcorn?
17. How often do you go to the movies (as opposed to renting them or watching them at home)?
Way less than I used to -- maybe 7-8 times a year?
18. What’s the last movie you saw in the theater?
Ghost Rider. Mistake.
19. What’s your favorite/preferred genre of movie?
Romantic comedy. I'm not a girl for nothing.
20. What’s the first movie you remember seeing in the theater?
Return of the Jedi. But I remember Princess Bride more because we went to an advanced screening and got "Storybook Love" on little 45s. God, I'm old.
21. What movie do you wish you had never seen?
Million Dollar Baby. I really wish I had walked out on that one.
22. What is the weirdest movie you enjoyed?
Weird because the movie was weird? Joe Versus the Volcano. Weird because no one else likes it? Welcome Home, Roxy Carmichael.
23. What is the scariest movie you’ve seen?
Since watching Jason through a blanket as a kid, movies have to try pretty hard to scare me. The beginning of Scream freaked me out.
24. What is the funniest movie you’ve seen?
That I remember laughing out loud all the time? Flirting with Disaster. Not as funny anymore, but I remember just being blown away the first time I saw it.
