And now for something different

I've seen this little meme pop up a couple places and thought it would be fun. I did notice a trend though, with one or two small exceptions everything on this list is something I first saw more than 10 years ago. I rarely watch movies these days. Dramas? Yes. Movies? No. 

Your favorite movie:
While You Were Sleeping. I remember watching that with my mom so many times and several quotes have become part of our family vernacular. 

The last movie you watched:
Breaking Dawn Part 2 - well, that's a bit embarssing :-)

Your favorite action/adventure movie:
The Matrix. I haven't seen it in ages but loved it in high school.

Your favorite horror movie:
I don't do horror movies - at all.

Your favorite drama movie:
Sense and Sensibility (or Pride and Prejudice if you let me count the BBC version as a movie not a mini-series)

Your favorite comedy movie:

A movie that makes you happy:
Return to Me

A movie that makes you sad:
Anne of Green Gables. I never can make it through Matthew's death without sobbing.

A movie that you know practically the whole script of: 
Much Ado about Nothing.

Your favorite director: 
I can't really name very many but I do like several of Nora Ephron's films.

Your favorite movie from your childhood:
The Secret Garden. I haven't seen it in years because I'm not sure if I would be as impresses now as I was back then and I don't want to ruin it.

Your favorite animated movie:
Toy Story

A movie that you used to hate but now love:
Not sure. Maybe I'm too stubborn to change my mind even when I should.

Your favorite quote from any movie:
Pretty much any of those random quotes from While You Were Sleeping: "Mary Mashed 'Em,"  "Argentina has good beef. Beef and Nazis" or "He's...leaning"

The first movie you saw in theaters:
Beauty and the Beast

The last movie you saw in theaters: 
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - The only time I've been to a theater since Lucy was born and it was the first time I left Lucy for more than 20 minutes or so. Worth it!

The best movie you saw during the last year:
I can't think of anything new that I've seen this past year other than Twilight. I don't watch many movies. If it was the best movie I've seen in the last year even though I've seen it many times before I'll say Sound of Music or Seven brides for seven brother because Lucy and I have enough both reletively recently.

A movie that disappointed you the most:
ET. My parents made us watch it because "it was amazing" and all us kids were quite underwhelmed. I think it was a "you had to be there" kinda of thing.

Your favorite actor(s): 
If we are talking movie actors (aka - non k-drama) I'd have to go with Colin Firth and Jeremy Northam. Staying true to my period piece first loves. Although I have to say that anytime I'm watching a movie and Steve Zahn appears, I get a bit giddy. He cracks me up. 

Your favorite actress(es):
Julie Andrews, Sandra Bullock or Emma Thompson (can I say that while I hardly even know what movies are in theaters these days, I'm kinda excited about Saving Mr. Banks)

The most overrated movie:
Any standard comedy. They aren't funny. I would ask when people will learn raunchy does not equal humor but I've lost hope they will.

The most underrated movie:
Can't think of one. Leave me a comment with your favorite so I can check it out and see if you're right.

Your favorite character from any movie:
Mr. Knightly from Emma. I named my cat after him. That's a pretty big deal.

Favorite documentary:
 Babies. So cute!

A movie that no one would expect you to love:
The Lethal Weapon Series. 

A movie that is a guilty pleasure:
Twilight series.  I know they aren't good but I can't not like them. 

Favorite classic movie:
I love old movies so this is hard but if you twist my arm I'll say An Affair to Remember.

Movie with the best soundtrack:
O Brother, Where Art Thou. I wasn't the biggest fan of that movie but the soundtrack is pretty different in a completely awesome way if I'm feeling folksy. Or Return to Me if I'm not. I'm always in the mood for some Frank. What was I thinking? Sound of Music, hands down.

A movie that changed your opinion about something:
Secretariat. I used to refuse to watch any movies starring or named after horses. This one wasn't bad. Maybe someday I'll get around to seeing Seabiscuit or National Velvet. Maybe.

Your least favorite movie:
Punch-Drunk Love. Worst movie ever! And I had to endure it with my high school boyfriend and his dad - soooo awkward for everyone. I know what happened, we all thought it was going to be like most adam sandler movies, which I wasn't a big fan of either but was willing to be selfless, but then it wasn't but no one wanted to say anything. And then it ended and we all sat there with more awkwardness until finally bf and I just got up and left the room and everyone could breathe a sign of relief. 

And that's a weird story to end this post with. Oh well, such is life :-)

  1. We have very similar movie tastes. If I have a chance, I might go through and fill this out myself.

    I have a similar awkward story for Love Actually. Years ago, I watched it with a friend and her dad. I cringed through a lot of the scenes, but I really liked the movie. I have seen it a few more times, but always with the remote in hand to skip the offensive story line.
