Movie Meme

Swiped, from Deb over at ... the movie meme, feel free to continue the theft or choose a question to answer in the comments box

1. Name a movie you have seen more than 10 times ...
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers! Damn it all Howard Keel was a good looking man and he couldn't half sing. And the dancing just blows me away every time I see it.

2. Name a movie you’ve seen multiple times in the theater ... Dirty Dancing
3. Name an actor who would make you more inclined to see a movie ... Hugh of course, what do you mean Hugh who? HUGH! The delicious Mr Jackman. Oh and Morgan Freeman - love him.
4. Name an actor who would make you less likely to see a movie ... the tiny and weird (what's with the whole religion thing) Mr Cruise.
5. Name a movie you can and do quote from ... The Birdcage "Honey you're wasting your gum!"
6. Name a movie musical in which you know all of the lyrics to all of the songs ... Calamity Jane, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Carousel and Oklahoma to name but a few.
7. Name a movie you have been known to sing along with ... Any of the above.
8. Name a movie you would recommend everyone see ...
The Shawshank Redemption - makes me cry every time I see it. Wonderful to see that the human spirit is never crushed.
9. Name a movie you own ... Bride & Prejudice - love the camp
Bollywoodness of it!
10. Name an actor who launched his/her entertainment career in another medium but who has surprised you with his/her acting chops. Elvis - when you think how many films he made whilst carrying on an incredibly successful career and the films are thoroughly enjoyable.
11. Have you ever seen a movie in a drive-in? NO, we don't have them in the UK much to my annoyance / disappointment.
12. Ever made out in a movie? Yes, hasn't everyone?
13. Name a movie you keep meaning to see but you just haven’t gotten around to yet. Pulp Fiction, because everyone raves about it. And I suppose I really should see ET at some point.
14. Ever walked out of a movie? Yes! The horrendous
I love you to Death (I normally love Kevin Kline.)
15. Name a movie that made you cry in the theater. Steel Magnolias
16. Popcorn? Yes salted and diet coke
17. How often do you go to the movies (as opposed to renting them or watching them at home)? Not often enough, Simon complains that his legs don't fit and I don't particularly like going alone.
18. What’s the last movie you saw in the theater? Umm ... gosh, ah I saw the Queen. Went with friends.
19. What’s your favorite/preferred genre of movie? I love to laugh ... give me a real gut splitting comedy.
20. What’s the first movie you remember seeing in the theater? Lady and the Tramp, my Nana took my brother and I during the school holidays. I cried.
21. What movie do you wish you had never seen? The Da Vinci Code I thought it was dreadful and I loved the book. A pathetic waste of my time having watched it!
22. What is the weirdest movie you enjoyed? I don't know, I can't think of one off the top of my head. Maybe you could answer that question for me.
23. What is the scariest movie you’ve seen? I don't do scary movies very often Kissed the Girls had me on the edge of my seat ... I like thrillers. I certainly don't ever watch horror films.
24. What is the funniest movie you’ve seen?
Too many to choose from ... I don't like slapstick but I love comedy so I am plumping for The Birdcage because I just cry laughing whenever I see it.

I own a copy of steel magnolias! Love it.
When I was little,I got taken out of the cinema in tears when Dumbo got seperated from his Mum.
Never heard of the birdcage.

I've never made out in the movies. I'm too mean. I paid for that movie and I'm going to watch it!

You know I've seen the Shawshank REdemption a bunch of times on tv and keep missing the first part of it? I agree, it's really good.

Love movies, especially old movies.

Fi said...

Well you know I love Shawshank too :)

Bambi was my tearjerker. I've never gotten over it.

Worst movie...Spanglish. Actually not that worst, more like the most disappointing.

And embarassingly I have the script for Four Wedding and a Funeral and know the dialogue off by heart.
