Seven Movie Questions About Me
Thank you to Olive at Movie News First for tagging me in this meme, Seven Movie Questions About Me!
What was your first movie-going experience?
In a strange coincidence with Olive, at about six years of age, my first cinema-going experience was also “The Addams Family”. Christopher Lloyd was highly disturbing as Uncle Fester, so I ended up turning around on my seat and facing the back of the cinema for most the film.
How many DVDs do you own?
I’ll be asking them to stand for a head count later.
What is your guilty pleasure movie?
This has to be….Twilight Saga.
Please don’t judge me.
There’s something about pale vampires in an incredibly mediocre film (with a decent soundtrack) that I just can’t resist.
Earlier this year I tried reading the book, but it’s worse than film. I did make it as far as Page 225, which I’m quite proud of.
You’ve compiled a list of your top 100 movies. Which ones didn’t make the cut?
“The Saddest Music in the World”. I watched it just one time in 2003 and loved it. I fear that love may have been a reaction of my unschooled and impressionable youth, so I will be watching it again before including it on any list. Another “Róisín Fact” is that I have yet to meet anyone else who has seen that particular Guy Maddin creation.
I once watched a short film based on Charles Bukowksi’s “Horseshoe”. It was an extra on the Factotum DVD. My high regard for the short film may have been influenced by my low regard for Factotum, so I shall also be retaining this one for future lists!
Which movie(s) do you compulsively watch over and over again?
Mainly short films, such as…
5) There are many other shorts that I have viewed almost as many times as this selection, but the final one which I’ve probably watched a few more times than most is: Vincent
Classics you’re ashamed relieved to admit you haven’t seen
The Breakfast Club.
What movie posters are hanging in your room?
I no longer have posters on my walls (That will change when I win the National Lottery and build my game room). I don’t know if it counts, but I do have a Vincent Price DVD collection on display. When I say “on display”, I mean it won’t fit into my literal treasure chest of hoardings. I also have High School Musical 3 Kleenex on my desk.
And now, in the long tradition of memes, I would like to pass this to the capable blogging hands of Filmplicity.
