Seven Movie Facts
I know that this meme is a little late, but I had a good reason. Vanessa at The Movie Ness tagged me indirectly. I thought I would jump on the bandwagon before I miss it.
1. What was your first movie-going experience?
My first movie-going experience? I don’t really know. I believe that the first movie I ever saw was a re-lease of Bambi at the movie theater when I was seven. When Bambi’s mother died, I was hysterically crying afterwards. Inconsolable.
2. How many DVDs do you own?
This is shocking for some people, but I only have two DVDs in my collection. I know. I know. Let me explain. A couple of years ago, I had almost 100 DVDs in my collection. There were some that I watched multiple times and others I didn’t even open the shrink-wrap. I was in dire straits at the time and I had to sell almost my entire collection to pay for food to survive. It was the sacrifice that I had to take.
3. What is your guilty pleasure movie?
Guilty pleasure? Do you mean “so bad it’s good” guilty pleasure or “you actually like that” guilty pleasure? In “so bad it’s good category,” I enjoyed “The Gate”, “Big Trouble in Little China”, “The Craft” and “Catwoman”. Don’t judge me. In the “you actually like that” category, I loved “13 Going on 30”, “Mean Girls”, all those girly, frou-frou movies.
4. You have complied a list of your top 100 movies. Which movies didn’t make the cut?
I didn’t put movies like “Antichrist”, “District 9”, “Frozen River” or fanboy movies like some the “Star War” sequel on the list, because I have to revisit them in order to be placed on my list. I also didn’t put “A Serious Man”, “The Big Lebowski” in there, because I am wrapping my brain around those movies. I can’t them on the list if I could say one way or another.
5. Which movie(s) do you compulsively watch over and over again?
Let me count the ways. I don’t know how many times I have watched “Pulp Fiction”, “The Color Purple”, “Adam & Steve”, “Bad Boys”, “The Goonies”, “The Sandlot” and “The Shawshank Redemption” must be in the thousands. Literally.
6. Classic(s) you’re embarrassed to admit you haven’t seen yet?
How much time you have? Name a movie before 1980 and I probably haven’t seen it. When I did my classic movie month last year, I made a dent in those classics that I haven’t seen. I have never seen “The Maltese Falcon”, “To Have and Have Not”, “Raging Bull”, “Apocalypse Now”, “8 ½”. The list goes on and on.
7. What movie posters do you have hanging on your wall?
I don’t currently have any posters hanging on my wall right now. I think it’s a waste of money. No offense to those who do.
I think everybody in the universe has been tagged for this meme. If you haven’t been tagged, considered tagged by association.
