Movie meme stumbled across in my wild online adventures...

  1. Name a movie that you have seen more than 10 times.
    I've seen a lot of movies more than 10 times... but since it only asks for one, I'll say Spartacus.

  2. Name a movie that you've seen multiple times in the theater.
    Well, the Lord of the Rings films spring to mind.

  3. Name an actor that would make you more inclined to see a movie.
    Johnny Depp because he tends to pick roles in interesting movies (apart from the Tim Burton movies ).

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

  5. Name a movie that you can and do quote from.
    I quote from a lot of 'em... Ghostbusters.

  6. Name a movie musical that you know all of the lyrics to all of the songs.
    I'm not really a big fan of the musical.

  7. Name a movie that you have been known to sing along with.
    South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut.

  8. Name a movie that you would recommend everyone see.
    Paths of Glory.

  9. Name a movie that you own.
    Ha ha ha ha... wait a minute... you were serious about that? Uh... Dangerous Liaisons happens to be on the shelf right over there.

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

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

  12. Ever made out in a movie?

  13. Name a movie that you keep meaning to see but just haven’t yet gotten around to it.
    There are a lot of these... I guess Barry Lyndon would count as an answer to this.

  14. Ever walked out of a movie?
    Once. It was 1941. I'm serious.

  15. Name a movie that made you cry in the theater.
    It's easy to get me to well up... just give me a good pre-battle speech.

  16. What’s the last movie you saw in the theater?
    There Will Be Blood.

  17. What’s your favorite/preferred genre of movie?
    I don't have any particular favorite genre, mostly because I really enjoy watching how genre manifests itself... not to mention that deep genre theory isn't as cut and dried as Blockbuster Video categories that most people mean when they use this term.

  18. What’s the first movie you remember seeing in the theater?
    My first memories of being in a movie theater is seeing Star Wars on its original release in 1977.

  19. What movie do you wish you had never seen?
    Hmmmm... it's hard for me to say... I'll usually get something out of even the worst film.

  20. What is the weirdest movie you enjoyed?
    Having a film school background apparently causes one to have very different definitions of 'weird movie' - the guy who took this before me apparently felt that Being John Malkovich was exceedingly weird. It's strange, yes, but not all that strange in context of something like Maya Deren's Meshes of the Afternoon or Alain Robbe-Grillet's l'Homme qui ment.*

  21. What is the scariest movie you've seen?
    Probably a toss-up between The Shining (which I saw as a child and can not bring myself to watch again) or the original Night of the Living Dead.

  22. What is the funniest movie you've seen?
    This is a really rough question for obvious reasons. There are many great comedies, but I guess I would have to say that the most consistently funny movie for me is Young Frankenstein.

* And if you think Charlie Kaufman's script for Adaptation is oh-so-cutting edge and post-modern, check out Robbe-Grillet's Trans-Europ-Express from 1966.
