So i’ve been away from this blog for a bit,mainly because i’ve been trying to work on other things in my life right now. But i was recently inspired by this meme to try to get back into blogging regularly. Can’t guarantee anything tho :P
There are a few questions i skipped because i didn’t feel i had a good answer for them. I think i did most of them tho. Also, i now have a letterbox account. So if you’re on their a follow would be nice :)
Anticipated Movie of 2014
I think i am going with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. The first one was surprisingly good, and im curious to see if they can keep the quality going.
Celebrity i would most like to meet
Deborah Ann Woll
This will come as no surprise to anyone that knows me. I’m a huge fan of hers,and she seems like she would be fun to hangout with. Also hoping when i become a bigtime filmmaker i can finally give her a role worthy of her talents :)
Dream Director-Actor/actress pairing
Since i already used Deborah for one of my answers, im going to pick Union. She is imo a underrated actress who deserves better roles(I’ve been trying to slog through being Mary jane just for her…and yall its been hard). For my director pick i will go with Aronofsky, perhaps in a erotic thriller with Union as the lead.
Essential Classic Film
I think im going to go with Night of the Hunter. A thrilling,dark film that kept me enthralled from start to finish. Also i felt it was a more interesting choice than something like Citizen kane
Favorite film franchise
Lord of the Rings. I feel its one of the few movie trilogys to maintain its quality throughout all 3 films.
Genre(s) i watch the most
This is a hard one to answer for me,as i happen to watch a lot of different genres. But if i had to pick one i think movies relating to sexuality are a fave of mine.
Diary of a Nymphomaniac. I think barely anyone has seen this,but i happen to find it amazing. In the beginning it seems like another shallow sex romp of a film,but i feel it becomes something much more meaningful by the end.
Important Moment in my Film Life
When i decided being a filmmaker was what i want to do as a career. I’m still having some trouble getting there,but im determined to make it.
Just right for a rainy day
I’m gonna go with Begginers for this one. For me it manages to be sweet without being sentimental.
Netflix movie i actually watched
I’ve actually watched a bunch of movies through netflix,but for this i will go with Frances Ha,since its is recent-ish. Was a fun little indie that managed to make you root for a character who wasn’t always likable.
Preferred Place To Watch A Movie(Cinema or Home)
Cinema. Home is fine,but if i can see a film in theaters i will.
Quote that Inspires Me
“You have to learn to let go.”
It took me a while to come up with a good answer for his one, as most of the films i love aren’t really “inspiring”(or at least not in the conventional way).
I was finally able to settle on a quote from Gravity. I remember when i saw it i found the movie surprisingly inspiring. When i saw the film i was going through a bit of a tough time,which made me resonate with the film even more.
Remakes (Friend or Foe?)
Generally foe, but every so often a good remake comes along
Snack i enjoy most
When im in theaters i generally enjoy candy with my movie-watching,while i like ice cream as my cinematic treat when watching at home.
Twist(s) That Boggles My Mind
The Usual Suspects and Vertigo.
Unapologetic fanperson for
Im gonna go with Jolie on this one,since i’ve noticed she seems to be a bit…polarizing. Now i respect the opinion of people who aren’t fans of her,but for me she has always been solid in anything i’ve seen her in. I always look forward to seeing her in a film,and she is the main reason Malificant is even on my radar.
Very Excited For Award Show Season?
I pay attention to it,but its not a big deal for me
Wish i never watched?
Don’t really have one.
XXX movie i first watched at a young age?
I have no clue. Growing up with 2 older brothers and a dad who wasn’t really big on censoring what we could watch, i can’t even remember what the first R rated movie i saw was. It was that far back.
On a related note, i have no memory of this but from what my dad has said one time i declared a movie to be “pornoglyphic” and walked away.
Your latest movie-related obsession
The Vampire Academy adaption. The early marketing had killed nearly all my enthusiasm for it,but the recent trailers have restored some of my hope in it. Im still afraid it won’t live up to my expectations,but im pretty much determined to see this in theaters anyways.
Edit-At this point its more of feeling a obligation to see it as a book reader than nay real excitement,as it seems like this ended up being a pretty badly botched adaption
I don’t think a movie has ever put me to sleep,but the 2nd half of the Thin Red Line bored the fuck outta me.
