Weekend Meme: The Movie Meme

>> Saturday, September 25, 2010

The boyfriend is touring Dublin and London for a week and a half and I'm left to my own device. Seriously, I much rather be traveling myself. Folsom Street Fair is going on right now in San Francisco and I'm sorry that I'll be missing all the debauchery. Especially given how much fun I had last time I was there, it's sort of like Christmas for me and a lot of other more adventurous folks. Speaking of which, Sue is heading to Folsom and attending all the parties, I'm so jealous.

Since I have a lot of time in my hands, I dug up an old meme from kapgar about movies, nothing kills more time than meme and movies.

1. Name a movie that you have seen more than 10 times.
I don't think I've seen any one single movies more than 10 times. I've never been that obsessive. The most I can think of would be Sister Act, I probably have seen that movie 5-6 times.

2. Name a movie that you've seen multiple times in the theater.
One of the few I can think about is Sister Act 2, I saw it twice in theater. There must be others, but I'm not sure which. (I guess I'm really into the singing back then)

3. Name an actor that would make you more inclined to see a movie.
Seldom is there an actor that makes me want to go to the theater to see a movie. It'll have to be someone who choose consistently good scripts to act on. Woody Harrelson, maybe?

4. Name an actor that would make you less likely to see a movie.
How many can I list? This is really too many to count. Socialite, talentless singer/actress, lack luster comedians...

5. Name a movie that you can and do quote from.
I'm very bad at this. I have friends who can remember every line no matter how insignificant they might be but I'm really shit at this. Maybe Pulp Fiction.

6. Name a movie musical that you know all of the lyrics to all of the songs.
Chicago, definitely. I loved the musical before hand and sing the songs all the time, so I can do Chicago. Probably Rent as well.

7. Name a movie that you have been known to sing along with.
Well, the musicals above. Dick Tracy is another one.

8. Name a movie that you would recommend everyone see.
I loved Beautiful Thing and I'd recommend it to everyone.

9. Name a movie that you own.
I do have a small collection of films. Shelter (2008) is one of them.

10. Name an actor that launched his/her entertainment career in another medium but who has surprised you with his/her acting chops.
Former model Rebecca Romijn was surprisingly good in X-men.

11. Have you ever seen a movie in a drive-in? If so, what?
No, but I'd like to experience that, it seems like a lot of fun but I'll have to get a driver's license and a car first. Also I think the drive-in theaters are hard to find in my neck of the wood and they are a dying breed.

12. Ever made out in a movie?
You know what, no. If you're paying close to $16 for a ticket, you might as well pay attention, no?

13. Name a movie that you keep meaning to see but just haven’t yet gotten around to it.
Wow, that's another question that require a huge answer. There must be tons. Right now I think it's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, I do like my mystery thrillers.

14. Ever walked out of a movie?
Yes, two-three times. One is Bruce Labruce's Otto; Or, Up With Dead People. For me, zombie movies can either be funny or scary. A pretentious zombie movie made to ponder about existence is a bit too much. Another one involves a gay film fest entry with Thai boys doing soft core porn that has a very dumb plot which I deemed to be a waste of time. If they were hairy gentlemen, I might have stayed. And then I think I walked out of Executive Decision because it was a tad boring and my friends just wanted to leave.

15. Name a movie that made you cry in the theater.
There are quite a few of them, but I really can't remember. I don't know if I'm getting more jaded or the recent writings and productions are not as great but crying during the movies are happening less and less.

16. What’s the last movie you saw in the theater?
Something in 3D... I think it was Piranha 3D. It was fun.

17. What’s your favorite/preferred genre of movie?
I think it's fantasy/adventure. I like movies that bring me to a place I've never been before. It doesn't hurt if there are magic, special powers or machinery involved.

18. What’s the first movie you remember seeing in the theater?
The would probably be a Hong Kong comedy called Security Unlimited, not that I can remember much of it. Other than that I've seen Bambi in Paris and another one called La Soupe Aux Choux, I remembered it as a comedy, but then I was 6 then, so everything would be pretty funny to me.

19. What movie do you wish you had never seen?
Every film is an unique experience even the scary, disgusting ones and the bad ones, the worst would be boring ones which are truly wastes of time. The Twilight series would probably qualified as wastes of time.

20. What is the weirdest movie you enjoyed?
Is it horrible that I actually enjoy the Jackass series?

21. What is the scariest movie you've seen?
It was a Japanese vampire movie I saw when I was 7. Nothing is scarier and creepier than Japanese horror films, and nothing is scarier when you're watching a horror film when you were 7.

22. What is the funniest movie you've seen?
Something starring Stephen Chow, probably Kung Fu Hustle.
