Movie Meme

Saw this on Ultrablog and figured, what the heck.

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

Otto Preminger's Laura. I must've seen it close to fifty times, whenever it was on TV. Haven't checked for a while. Also A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Mel Brooks' original The Producers.

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

The first two Star Wars movies, twice, before the third opened.

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

Hmmmm..... most of my fav actors are tv stars, but if Roy Dupuis makes a movie shown in the US, I'm there.

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

Sylvestor Stallone.

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

The vessel with the pesstle has the pellet with the poison.... now to remember which Danny Kaye that movie is from. I could probably mangle quotes from a bunch of other movies, too.

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

My memory isn't what it used to be. I wouldn't even attempt this now. I used to be able to do "Springtime for Hitler" from The Producers fairly well. And I do okay with the Beatles' movies A Hard Day's Night and Help.

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

The Beatles movies named above, anything else I know the lyrics for.

8. Name a movie you would recommend everyone see.

Right now, if you haven't seen Little Miss Sunshine, you're missing a real treat.

9. Name a movie you own.

Uh, lots. Hmmmm...... Galaxy Quest was one of my first on dvd.

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

None that surprised me. I was happy to see Jeff Goldblum move nicely from TV to movies, and a bunch of soap stars, including Tommy Lee Jones. Anyone know what soap he was on? Along with Tom Berenger? Cyber chocolate to anyone who leaves the right answer in the comments.

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

I think my parents took my sister and me to one when we were kids. I don't know what.

12. Ever made out in a movie?


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

Most. Currently, Casino Royale remake, so I'm buying the dvd.

14. Ever walked out of a movie?

La Cage Aux Folles, for the third time I was seeing it. My friend and I were disappointed to discover we were seeing the dubbed into English version, not the subtitled one.

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


16. Popcorn?

Not so much anymore. I prefer Sno-Caps when I can get them.

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

I'm down to 3 or 4 per year now, very depressing.

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

Little Miss Sunshine last fall.

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

Science fiction, action adventure, farce, comedies, Monty Python, anything good.

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

Sheesh. I'd have to check the dates. My friends and I practically lived in the little theater a few blocks from my house. We saw Psycho, Wait Until Dark in the '60s.

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

None come to mind. Well, Love Story. The book was so much better.

22. What is the weirdest movie you enjoyed?

Define "weird."

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

Psycho, and Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte made a real impression on my young self back in the '60s.

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

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, The Producers, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Little Miss Sunshine, Young Frankenstein, Take the Money and Run, Blazing Saddles, Best in Show.... I could go on and on, but these are some of the ones that had me laughing until I cried.
