Movie meme

Lemmings - forward! (and it saves me having to think up something else to post about today)

(Don't forget Alan Baxter's Blog Tour has also commenced - Day two today.)

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

Highlander (I stopped counting at 50, but that was reached in less than 12 months from it's original release)

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

I've never watched a movie twice at the theatre.

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

I'm pretty easy going in regards to the cast of any movie, but Jessica (Alba/Biel) would peak my interest a little more than most ;c)

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

Like I said in #3, I'll watch anything with anyone in it, but Donald Pleasence isn't a favourite. My wife hates Jamie Lee Curtis so I don't seem to watch anything with her in it either...

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

Lots. Anything Shakespeare (Hamlet, MacBeth, Romeo & Juliet), Monty Python, Disney flicks, and, of course, Highlander.

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

I'm a closet wannabe singer who sings along to the radio all the time. In particular, Grease 1 & 2, Rocky Horror, Highlander (opps - not a musical but I know all the Queen songs), and anything Disney.

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

Apart from those above - Flash Gordon (yes, I like Queen) - oh and the Beatles based Across the Universe - I dare anybody to watch that and not sing along!

8.Name a movie that you would recommend everyone see.

Somewhere in Time with Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeves.

9.Name a movie that you own.

Just one? Apart from everything already named...The Lost Boys (I sing a long with the soundtrack in that as well...)

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

Robin Williams. A comedian turned actor who is the true king of improv.

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

Lots! But nothing overly recent (ie not in the last 10 years or so). I remember seeing The Amyitville Horror after being smuggled into a drive in squashed into the trunk of a mates car!

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

Deep Throat - I'd like to know what all the fuss was about.

13.Ever walked out of a movie?


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

Teared up a touch in Titanic but my wife was heavily pregnant at the time so it was a stressful period anyway - she gave birth the following day.

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

Night at the Museum II - not bad.

16.What’s your favorite/preferred genre of movie?

Foreign. I watch World Movies - a lot! More often than not, they are so much better than the Hollywood rip offs, and Bollywood is just funny.

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


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

The Lobstermen from Mars - don't ever watch this, don't even look it up. You have been warned.

19.What is the weirdest movie you enjoyed?

Some of the adult orientated (and I don't mean porn here) Japanese animae is very weird and yet the art can carry it through. How about Eyes Wide Shut, or Girl In A Box - there are so many to choose from.

20.What is the scariest movie you’ve seen?

The Return of Count Yorga when I was 14. A mate and I were allowed to sleep in the lounge room and watch an all night horror marathon. We walked back into the room after a quick drinks break and the Count thrust his hands through the glass window to grab his victim just as we were putting the drinks on the coffee table. We S$#T ourselves!

21.What is the funniest movie you’ve seen?

I get a good laugh from most Disney flicks (at least since Shrek and that sort arrived), and Mrs Doubtfire is good for a chuckle, but I can't remember a flick which has had me laughing from go to woe or even for most of it.

So there you go. Make of that what you will.


  1. There are probably only two films I've voluntarily watched more than ten times. The Princess Bride and The Rocky Horro Picture Show.

  2. The soundtrack to Lost Boys was fantastic. I had it on tape but now have no tape deck.

  3. Haha yeah, watching Lost Boys this weekend we kept going, "This song rules!" "No, no this is the best!" Hard not to.

    Now I'm singing that FLASH! Ohhhh!

    That was fun :D

  4. Deep Throat is tame by today's standards. Not that I know personally, of course...someone told me it was. ;)

    Queen does rule, and Flash Gordon is awesome.

  5. Allright! Another Highlander fan. I was always perplexed, though, why the French guy played the Scot, and the Scot played the Egyptian...And your mentioning Bollywood has got me thinking of Slumdog Millionaire, loved that one. And...some of Orca was shot in small bay here about Newfoundland. Yes, it was ghastly...

  6. Nice meme - I've taken it to my blog!

  7. Have we all spotted the tragic children of the 80s among us...

    The 60s may have been wild but the 80s were off the charts ;c)

    Queen rules, Robin Williams is a genius, not sure I'd admit to watching the Princess Bride multiple times..., I've updated to The Lost Boys DVD and CD (I have Cry Little Sister as my ringtone), Katey - funny, I believe you Aaron, nothing in Highlander made a lot of sense, but I loved it anyway, I'll be over to have a look soon, Alan.
