Movie Meme

Shamelessly stolen from Christine who shamelessly stole it from Suz.

Name your all-time top five favorite movies.-
The Shawshank Redemption
The Princess Bride
Labyrinth -- I mean, how can you not love a movie with David Bowie in long hair and tights
The Phantom of the Opera (2004)
The Lord of the Rings (trilogy) -- does that count as one movie or three?

Honourable mentions:
Dirty Dancing
Pretty Woman -- a feelgood movie about a hooker and her john... lovely.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Oh Brother Where Art Thou?

What’s your favorite movie line? "Hello, My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father, preparet to die!" spoken by Mandy Patinkin in The Princess Bride.

Who’s your favorite movie character? I'm not sure, but if I have to pick one I'd say Dr. Frank N. Furter (wonderfully protrayed by Tim Currey) in Rocky Horror, or Captain Jack Sparrow (a very sexy Johnny Depp) from the Pirates of the Carribean movies... you gotta love men who can pull of wearing more eye makeup than most women! lol

What movie do you love that most people hate? I'd probably have to say Rocky Horror. It's definitely one of those Love it or Hate it movies...

What movie do you hate that most people love? Fargo... I just never got the point. Never even finished watching it. I couldn't get past the accents.

What was the last movie you saw? As in theatre movie? I saw Georgia Rule in the Theatre last week. A pretty good movie.

What’s your least favorite movie ever? I dunno. I guess it isn't important enough for one to stick in my mind.

What one movie have you seen that you would never ever watch again? I'd say Fargo, but I didn't actually see the whole movie. One I saw not too long ago, was Friends with Money. (with Jennifer Aniston) It definitely wasn't my cup of tea.

What was the last DVD you saw? I can't answer that on the grounds that I might incriminate myself. grin

What was the first DVD you remember buying? I don't remember what the first one we got was. I remember buying the DVD player in 1999. There was only one place in Fredericton that you could rent DVDs. (Blockbuster etc didn't rent them yet.) We paid over $400 for the dvd player, and it was one of the lower-middle end ones that the store sold. We just replaced it a few months ago.

What actor/actress would you like to look like? Oh, any of em... But right now, in honour of the new Pirates of the Carribean, I'd probably say Kiera Knightly. Just not quite so thin.

What classic movie have you never seen? Lots... I don't watch a lot of older movies. In fact I just saw "It's a Wonderful Life" last year at Christmas for the first time...

What song would you choose to be the theme song to the movie of your life story? Dream on by Aerosmith

What’s your favorite movie genre? Fantasy or Romantic Comedy. It depends on my mood.

Who’s your favorite actor/actress? I don't think I have a favourite. I love lots of them, but to say an actual favourite... none.

What actor/actress do you refuse to see their movies? I always said I couldn't stand Uma Thurman. For a long time I wouldn't watch her stuff. but I saw My Super Ex Girlfriend recently and it wasn't too bad... I might have to change my mind.

What genre would you choose not to watch? Horror. I dont sleep well for weeks after watching a scary movie. Especially when Jason's working night shift and I'm home alone. I see shadows moving and hear noises every 30 seconds. I LOVE the movies themselves, but it's not worth the hell of not sleeping for weeks. That doesn't count standard slasher flicks or general thriller movies... but a movie with actual monsters (that counts aliens) in it... no way. I still have images in my head after watching "28 Days Later" of that zombie coming through the window when the guys lights the candle at night...

What’s your favorite theater concession combo? Popcorn, popcorn and more popcorn... soaked in butter.

Front row, Back row, Side Seats, Aisle or center? We like to sit close to the back at the Aisle. Jason's a fairly big guy and it's so annoying sitting in the middle with people squished all around you, so he sits on the end and has room to stretch his legs and never has to share an arm rest. (except with me) We also sit fairly close to the back but not right at the back or you don't get the same effect from the surround sound speakers. (since they are usually right over your head if you're in the back row)

How could I forget Rocky Horror Picture Show? gah! No one says "Oh, Rock-eh" quite like Tim Curry. I just love him in that role. Love him. I am trying to convince my husband one halloween to dress up like that. Hee.
