20 Questions

Excuse me while I take a moment to be generic. I ramble on and on in regards to how I feel about movies and games, but I think it’s time I answered a few questions about my own personal tastes. So, to do so, I ganked some q’s from other blogs around the web. Let’s play 20 questions everybody! Muahahaha. Enjoy.

1. Name a movie that you have seen more than 10 times.
V for Vendetta. And Children of Men. More than any other, though: Wedding Crashers—and not by my choosing. Don’t get me wrong. Great movie. It’s a scream. But GOD. Everyone wanted to see it. One after another. Or again. And again. I don’t even know how many times I’ve seen it now. Very sad—I am so very burned out on it.

2. Name a movie that you’ve seen multiple times in the theater.
Taken. Liam Neeson was amazing. I just couldn’t pass up watching him tear through Europe so methodically. And efficiently. Ah, destructive satisfaction.

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

The first two that come to mind are some of the oldies: Morgan Freeman and Sir Anthony Hopkins. Fantastic actors. I will admit, though, that Portman reels me in frequently. Mmm, Natalie. Also: Depp and Damon. Clive Owen’s also snared me since I first saw Children of Men…though that’s sadly led me to many disappointments.
4. Name an actor that would make you less likely to see a movie.
Tom Cruise. No beating around the bush there. Keep the scientologist flock at bay. Oh, and shove Ben Stiller over there, too. He has his moments, at least…but still.

5. Name a movie that you can and do quote from.
V for Vendetta and Pulp Fiction. Odd combo, but hey, you get what you paid for (and you’re not payin’ me nothin’.)

6. Name a movie musical that you know all of the lyrics to all of the songs.
Could I pull in my sister-in-law for this one? I’d blow your minds. Pry into my lil’ head and you might find some Across the Universe…but it helps when you’ve already got the Beatles’ versions blaring through your mind!

7. Name a movie that you have been known to sing along with.
Across the Universe. Or Sweeney Todd. “There’s a whole in the world like a great black pit…” Wait, wait, wait. Singing? I believe you meant humming. Don’t make your ears bleed.

8. Name a movie that you would recommend everyone see.
Children of Men. Go see it now.

9. Have you ever seen a movie in a drive-in? If so, what?
Drive….in? What’sat? That some kinda fancy talk, boy?

10. Ever made out in a movie?

I’d plead the fifth if I weren’t proud of it. But I am. So I won’t. But hey, worse things have happened in theaters…

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

Doubt. The one movie from last year’s batch of Oscars I haven’t yet seen. Keep meaning to, but never seem to get around to it, and I hear great things. One day. One day. Go Netflix queue, go!

12. Ever walked out of a movie?
No. But the closest I ever came was The Black Dahlia. Gag me with a spoon. I fell asleep three times and nearly tore my hair out through the rest of it. Even going with a group couldn’t save that one. Such a waste of cash.

13. Popcorn?
Mmm, salty, buttery death.

14. How often do you go to the movies (as opposed to renting them or watching them at home)?
I used to go to the movies all the time. These days, it’s all about the Netflix. Theater’s reserved for ones I really, really must see. Example: Avatar—IMAX = omfgprettygasm.

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

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

Ah, good ol’ Dragonheart. 1996. Seven years old. I felt so proud of myself, going with my parents and my brother to watch the Sean Connery dragon eat people. Good times.

17. What movie do you wish you had never seen?
Lich. Ugggh. Worst. Movie. Ever. If there is one thing my ex-gf ever deserves divine retribution for, it’s showing me…that.

18. What is the weirdest movie you enjoyed?
Being John Malkovich. Freaking bizarre, but it’s the quirky kind of wonderful I like.

19. What is the scariest movie you’ve seen?
I’m editing this. There is no such thing as a scary movie. “Scarier” tends to = funnier. So what’s the funniest horror movie I’ve seen? Not sure, but Flight of the Living Dead’s pretty high up there.

20. What is the funniest movie you’ve seen?
Ooo, tough one. Rage in Placid Lake is an off-the-beaten-path, hilarious gem. I have always been partial to Wedding Crashers
