I saw a couple of bloggers do this meme, but i was reluctant too because i didn’t think i would have a good answer from some of them. But Ronan has convinced me to do it. So here goes my best attempt. Also, for question 8 i used a rather naughty pic. I may change it if it bothers people, but i figured the question called for it
1.Movies you love with a passion
Let the Right One in. What i love about the film is how even though it is a vampire movie, it has a very un-stylized, gritty look. This is something that i haven’t seen in a lot of american vampire movies(or tv shows) don’t really do, and i personally think it makes for a interesting contrast between fantasy and reality.
This is an aspect that i would like to have my movies to have. Visually, this is one film that inspired me to want to be a filmmaker in the first place.
2.The movie i vow never to watch
This one was rather difficult for me, as there are very few movies that i would refuse to watch under any circumstances. However, i don’t see myself ever sitting down to watch it this. I don’t think i would get anything out of it.
3.The movie that left you speechless
Vertigo, by Alfred Hitchcock. After i watched this my thoughts went along the lines of “what just happened.” The ending of this movie is crazy…and that is all i can say without spoiling it
4.Movie you always recommend
This one was a difficult one for me to answer, as i have come to realize how varied peoples taste in movies can be, which makes picking a movie to recommend to everyone rather difficult. Buy after thinking about it for a bit, i decided to use Franklyn for my answer here, for 3 main reasons. First, its not something that i think most would find disturbing, creepy, or hard to watch(I personally don’t mind those types of movies, but i realize there are those who don’t like those types of movies, including most of my followers). Second, its a rather unknown movie that i think deserves to get more attention then it has gotten. Third, it doesn’t have any nudity/sex in it, the violence in the movie as a whole isn’t all that graphic, and while it has some profanity its not in every scene. The only thing i can think of in the movie that some people might object to is one of the main characters contempt for religion, but the movie imo doesn’t present his view as the “right” answer.
5. What actor or actress do you watch no matter how crappy the movie is
Generally, if a movie seems really bad to me i won’t watch it(Hence why i am not seeing a certain golf movie even though it has Deborah Ann Woll in it). The closest equivalent i could think of was Nicole Kidman, who i think generally gives good performances even if the movie itself isn’t so great(Stepford WIves being a good example)
6.Actor/Actress you don’t get the appeal of
Nick Cannon. Generally, i am ambivalent to 99% of actors/actresses, and usually i can forgive a not so great performance if i don’t think the role is good, so there aren’t a lot of actors/actresses i would say i dislike. However, this guy managed to ruin a perfectly good role in Bobby. I have been hesitant to see him in anything else since.
7.Actor or Actress you would like to meet
Summer Glau. Considering her choice of roles it seems like she has a interest in sci-fi, so hopefully we would be able to talk about that if nothing else. Also, considering she was willing to play herself on the Big Bang, it doesn’t seem like she takes herself too seriously, which is always a plus in my book
8.Sexiest Actor/Actress you’ve ever seen
Deborah Ann Woll. Don’t know if she is the most sexiest actress i’ve seen, but she is pretty damm close. Plus she happens to be my current obsession
9.Your Dream Cast
The cast for my “Princess” pitch.
10. Favorite Actor pairing
Sean Penn and Naomi Watts in Fair game. Both give fantastic performances, and had great chemistry. They were perfectly believable as a married couple.
11. Favorite movie setting
X-men. I think the mutants struggle for acceptance from humans is a interesting premise.
12. Favorite Decade in movies
Honestly i don’t have one. This is the main question that made me hesitant to participate in this meme.
13. Action Movie or Chick Flick
I generally prefer action, although i think the question is excessively simplistic. I can enjoy a well done romance movie, and just because a movie has action in it doesn’t mean its a good movie. Btw for those who don’t recognize the picture, its from the Losers, one of my fav action movies.
14. Hero, Antihero, or villian
Generally Antiheroes, although i think a hero can be a interesting, complex character if written right. Picture above is the main character from the Millennium trilogy
15.Black and White or Color
Color. Doesn’t mean i can’t appreciate a good Black&White film, but i think color allows for more options visually. Also, for those who don’t know, the pic is from Eyes Wide Shut
