Angie tagged me, and today’s a good day to run around the blog playground, no?
Total numbers of films I own: Hmmm…taking away the collection of Thomas and Barney movies and Star Wars/Harry Potter movies which belong to the boys, probably only about 20. I like renting.
Last film I watched: Umm…the last movie I watched was xXx. Vin Diesel. ‘Nuff said. The last movie I watched that I hadn’t seen before would be the Into The West miniseries. (We don’t watch movies during the summer. It’s sittin’ on the porch in the evenings weather.)
Five favorite films I either watch frequently or that mean a lot to me:
1. King Arthur— The one with Clive Owen and Kiera Knightly. The movie, quite frankly, sucked. But there’s still just something about it that draws me to it.
2. A Knight’s Tale— this is my putzing around cleaning movie. It just simply rocks.
3. The King & I— not only is this my forever-favoritest movie, but it launched a lifetime of appreciation for bald men.
4. Gettysburg— It’s an amazing movie (especially if you’ve walked the battlefield)
5. Star Wars— Yes, all of them.
(If you were to ask me last week or ask me next week, the list might change depending on my mood, except The King & I)
Worst film you’ve ever had to endure: The worst movie I’ve ever seen was Freddy Got Fingered, but I didn’t endure. I walked out, so that may not count. As for worst movie I’ve actually endured in recent memory, it would be a tie: Van Helsing, which was SUCH a disappointment to me, but I watched the whole thing anyway because of Hugh in that long, black coat. And Moulin Rouge which was…I don’t even have words for what it was. Why did I watch the whole thing? Because I knew she died at the end and I wanted to savor that moment.
Favorite movie quote: “I drive a Volvo. A beige one.” (Nicolas Cage in The Rock.)
Favorite movie adapted from a book: Lonesome Dove. I can’t believe how true that movie is to the book. It’s the best I’ve ever seen. And yes, I love the book, too.
One book I’d like to see made into a movie: Grayson’s Surrender by Catherine Mann. I want to actually see him in that uniform when he walks into the courtroom.
(Just one? C’mon)
