Tag. I'm it.

Cindy tagged me.

Total number of films I own:

I dunno. I put my hand on top of them and muttered, "5,10, 15, 20" and got to about 230. But then that includes some boxed sets of SCTV, Monty Python, Twilight Zone and some other TV stuff.

Last film I watched:

Husband watched, I listened to: Sin City
Children watched, I tried not to listen to: Garfield
Last film I watched at home: Garden State
Last film I watched in theatre, with popcorn: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Five favorite films I either watch frequently or that mean a lot to me:

Notorious Oh, Dev.
Room With a View
The Four Musketeers
The Pirates of the Caribbean
Krull This is on here because I remember watching a Siskel and Ebert review of this in 1983. My aunt and I were watching the clip silently and at the end, turned to each other and said, "That looks GOOD!" At which point Ebert said, "And this is just one example of how bad the film is. I won't even waste any more time on it." Oh well. (If you're not sure which one Krull is, it's the one with the flying Clydesdales.)

Worst film you've ever had to endure:

Starship Troopers. Please. Make it go away. Please.

Favorite movie quote:

From My Favorite Year, which also belongs in the list above: "Damn you! I'm not an actor, I'm a movie star!"

Favorite movie adapted from a book:

The Talented Mr. Ripley

One book I'd like to see made into a movie:

The Broken Citadel By Joyce Ballou Gregorian

Uh, really liked Starship Troopers because when sci-fi is so scarce, you'll watch anything....except Lost In Space.

I finally got to see The Talented Mr. Ripley and it was really well done. I just didn't get it. I kept thinking he would get a grip and then at the end you see him sobbing. Terrific.

Pirates of the Caribbean - really need to re-watch this one. I keep waiting for the hubby to be free to watch but so far, no luck :(

Why oh why does the "hot" military heroine in Starship have those obnoxious lips? How can she talk through all that "si-wa-coh" that she pumped in there?

It makes me crazy to watch her.

Oh, I loved ST! :D

I thought the propaganda stuff was hilarious, though I agree about the heroine. Was totally ready to reach out and kill her, particularly when the other chick died.

Suisan said...

Hi Meljean! Thanks for coming to visit.

I think I'd like ST if my husband didn't watch it at Every Available Moment. Ugh.
