15 Movie Questions Meme
Posted by Tyler
One of the great minds of the movie multiverse, Anna at Defiant Success, formulated a list of fifteen movie questions that a movie geek should answer. I came across the guys’ lists at Anomalous Material and decided to give one a crack for myself. So here goes… hopefully something!
1: A Movie You Love With a Passion:
Hell… f*cking… yeah.
2: A Movie You Vow Never to Watch:
Do I need to say more? This could also be a frontrunner for most offensive movie title ever. A sarcastic thank you to Ashley Clarke at Permanent Plastic Helmet for alerting me to the existence of this awful, awful… mess.
3: Movie That Literally Left You Speechless:
I could not move when this finished. Fantastic.
4: Movie You Always Recommend:
It’s the movie on my Top 50 that is the most unseen, and for God’s sake, it’s a classic. It’s brilliant, and it’s one I can watch over and over. Other contenders: Mulholland Drive, Persona, Sex Lies and Videotape
5: Actor/Actress You Always Watch, No Matter How Crappy the Movie:
I don’t get it, there’s just something about him that makes watching a movie so much cooler. I guess I keep envisioning him as John Doe or Verbal Kint or that mean guy who fired Benecio Del Toro and gave Frank Whaley a ton of shit in Swimming with Sharks.
6: Actor/Actress You Don’t Get the Appeal For:
I don’t know why, he just… unnerves me. He’s annoying, and I don’t get him. Sorry, Ben. This is probably why I was laughing louder than everyone in the room when Larry David stabbed him in the eye on an episode of Curb.
7: Actor/Actress, Living or Dead, You’d Love to Meet:
8: Sexiest Actor/Actress You’ve Seen (picture required):
She may be the reason I was so quick to buy my Criterion DVD of The Double Life of Veronique. She’s the thinking man’s Megan Fox! Well, she was in the early 90s, anyway. She’s Irene Jacob!
9: Dream Cast:
Al Pacino playing a drug lord forced to turn his vastly growing empire to a reluctant son, Daniel Day-Lewis, while Martin Scorsese directs.
10: Favourite Actor Pairing:
Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in Lethal Weapon. I’m not too old for that shit.
11: Favourite Movie Setting:
Anywhere but Pandora.
12: Favourite Decade for Movies:
The 90s, man! If not then the 70s, but gooooo 90s! Most of the films I watched growing up were these gems, and whether they were good, bad or awful, I still f**king enjoyed them!
13: Chick Flick or Action Movie:
Watch Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Case closed.
14: Hero, Villain or Anti-Hero:
I’m not the first person to pick it, but Michael Douglas ruled in Falling Down. Anti-Hero all the way!
15: Black and White or Colour:
I admit it. I would have liked to have seen a lot of B&W movies in colour. But I love B&W! I love it more than colour! But once you see the Bergman movies Cries and Whispers and Fanny and Alexander, it’s impossible not to pick colour.
So those are my answers. Now let me know… what’s yours? Leave a comment telling me what you thought of my picks, and continue this meme by posting one on your own site, and check out the three sites I mentioned at the top of the page.
Thanks for reading.
