Everyone else is doing it.

I am a sheep and this mem has been going around this weekend. It looked like fun so I decided to play along.

1.Name a movie that you have seen more than 10 times.
Any Disney movie ever made and Brandon Lee's The Crow. The Crow because I wanted to and the Disney because I have kids.

2.Name a movie that you’ve seen multiple times in the theater.
Aladdin. I was in College and, at the time, I didn't drink. It seemed like the thing to do on a Friday night.

3.Name an actor that would make you more inclined to see a movie.
Johnny Depp. His range is incredible.

4.Name an actor that would make you less likely to see a movie.
Paul Walker. He annoys me.

5.Name a movie that you can and do quote from.
Batman. The Tim Burton Original.

6.Name a movie musical that you know all of the lyrics to all of the songs.
Singin' In The Rain. Any Disney movie.

7.Name a movie that you have been known to sing along.
See above.

8.Name a movie that you would recommend everyone see.
The Crow.

9.Name a movie that you own.
Star Wars. Although I own many more than that.

10.Name an actor that launched his/her entertainment career in another medium but who has surprised you with his/her acting chops.
Someone else mentioned Will Smith. How can you go wrong with Will Smith.

11.Have you ever seen a movie in a drive-in? If so, what?
Yes, but I couldn't tell you what the movie was. Technically we weren't at the drive in but you could see it and pull the sound from the radio from where I lived at the time.

12.Name a movie that you keep meaning to see but just haven’t yet gotten around to it.
Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull. the kids got it for me for Christmas last year and I still haven't watched it.

13.Ever walked out of a movie?
I don't remember. Probably not.

14.Name a movie that made you cry in the theater.
Up! What an incredible movie.

15.What’s the last movie you saw in the theater?
Up! Before that it was probably Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist.

16.What’s your favorite/preferred genre of movie?
Action Adventure, or animation.

17.What’s the first movie you remember seeing in the theater?
The Muppet Movie

18.What movie do you wish you had never seen?
The good son with that home alone kid. Not enjoyable.

19.What is the weirdest movie you enjoyed?
Clockwork Orange

20.What is the scariest movie you’ve seen?
Blair Witch Project, only the first time.

21.What is the funniest movie you’ve seen?
Big with Tom Hanks. Monty Python's Holy Grail is a close second.

I'll lose cool points, but I'll admit that I liked the Good Son. Terrible acting, but that last scene is pretty intense...

Jamie Eyberg said...

Barry- To each their own. I am ashamed to admit that I own that one. I should burn it. I will never watch it again.

K.C. Shaw said...

The Crow is another movie I've always meant to see but never got around to. Maybe I'll Netflix it now.

The Muppet Movie is so cool. :)

Cate Gardner said...

I love 'The Crow'. I think I'll pick up the DVD and watch it during my holidays.

Katey said...

"The Crow" was the first movie I ever bought with "my own money" as Mom called it. I wore that tape right the hell out.

Also, "Singin in the Rain" has to be on my top ten list of all time awesome movies.

That was fun!

Jamie Eyberg said...

K.C.- Muppets are all kinds of awesome.

Cate- might have to watch it again this week as well.

Katey- I have both of them on VHS. Need to get them on DVD. You are right, that was fun.

Fox Lee said...

I've seen Crystal Skull. You'll be happy to know that it is nowhere near as horrible as reviewers said it was. That said, you might want to kill George Lucas.

Aaron Polson said...

I wish I could go back to the time before I saw Blair Witch. That movie was sooooo much better before the end.

Cheers for the Muppets!

Jamie Eyberg said...

Nat- I have heard it is a like/hate type movie (not a love/hate one). I am still looking forward to seeing it, someday.

Aaron- I prefer to read my horror than watch it. I like my mind to fill in the blanks. Perhaps that is why I am an action and or animation fan. Bring on the Jackie Chan!

I remember when Blair Witch came out, I was actively looking for films to scare me. Sadly, that was not one of them, though I loved all the backstory they created for the movie. Some of the stories and legends for the Blair witch were very creepy.

Danielle Birch said...

I was disappointed with the Blair Witch Project. Maybe I was expecting too much.

Unknown said...

blair witch scared the bejesus out of me. i think bc it leaves things up to the imagination, and my imagination is not so happy.

i love the crow. i also, in a lesser degree, love the good son. though it is more enjoyable with a bottle of wine and a running commentary with friends (featuring gems like "dude, your son is evil okay? EVILLLLL")

Jamie Eyberg said...

Jameson- I think the backstory they had was genius. Much better than the movie.

Danielle- I did get a lot of hype at the time. :( It got too much press and not enough word of mouth.

Samantha- I would consider doing an MST3K Good Son. That would be fun.

Snarf. I was another collegiate Aladdin-watcher. We got all rowdy and threw popcorn at the screen.

Wow. We were so kewl.
