Movie Questionnaire

Yeah, I’m back, for those wondering. I really enjoyed participating in the Movie Confessions blogathon over at Myfilmviews, but I also thought it’d be nice to do one of my own. I know my blog is nowhere near as popular as Nostra’s, so I won’t expect it to be as successful, but I’d still think it’d be neat to see what all your answers are to this questionnaire. Also a nice way to kick off season two. Below are the questions with my own personal answers. Please, bloggers, post your answers on your own blog, and email me the link to the post at spielberg00@gmail.com. I’ll have all your links posted at the bottom of this post once that has been done.

1. What’s your favorite movie?
Slumdog Millionaire

2. Least favorite movie?
Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot

3. Name one movie you loved upon initial viewing but eventually grew to hate (or vice-versa).
The Incredibles

4. Name your biggest “guilty pleasure” film.
Either Troll 2, Plan 9 from Outer Space, or the Austin Powers series.

5. Favorite quote from a favorite actor/actress (must be a line from a movie)?
“No f###in’ s##t lady, do I sound like I’m ordering a pizza?” –Bruce Willis in Die Hard

6. Favorite quote from a favorite actor/actress (must NOT be a line from a movie)?
“My mother never saw the irony in calling me a son of a b##ch.” –Jack Nicholson

7. Three favorite movie scenes?
“Heere’s Johnny!” – The Shining
“Show me the money!” – Jerry Maguire
“I drink your milkshake.” – There Will Be Blood

8. Four films that should NOT have won Best Picture?
Million Dollar Baby
A Beautiful Mind
Dances with Wolves
Terms of Endearment

9. Top five of the year (currently)?
Moonrise Kingdom
Prometheus
Titanic 3D
Haywire
The Dark Knight Rises

10. Bottom three of the year (currently)?
The Woman in Black
Brave
Red Tails

11. What film gets your vote for the worst or most pointless remake?
It’s a tossup between Wolfgang Petersen’s Poseidon and Gus van Sant’s Psycho.

12. Is there any film you think is actually desperate for a remake?
Howard Hughes‘s Hell’s Angels

13. Name your three favorite film heroes.
Indiana Jones – Raiders of the Lost Ark et seq
Ellen Ripley – Alien and Aliens
Oskar Schindler – Schindler’s List

14. Name your three favorite film villains.
Norman Bates – Psycho et seq
Hannibal Lecter – The Silence of the Lambs
The Joker – The Dark Knight

15. Best sequel?
The Godfather Part II – even though it’s part-prequel as well. Closely following that is The Dark Knight.

16. Worst sequel?
Speed 2: Cruise Control – though when the Raging Bull pre/sequel hits theaters next year that pick is bound to change.

17. Best trilogy?
A tossup between the Dark Knight trilogy, the original Star Wars trilogy, and the first three Bourne movies. Though the only one of those trilogies that started above a B and only excelled from there (IMHO) was Bourne.

18. Worst trilogy?
I’ll have to go with the Meet the Parents/Fockers movies. I did truly enjoy the comedic warmth of the first film, but from then on it was just a mess of poor acting and strictly dumbed down, clichéd humor. I’m sure somebody’s already said this, but if there is a fourth entry, it MUST be called Fock the Fockers.

19. What’s your favorite word to use in a movie review (if your film blog does not feature reviews, substitute “review” with “-related post”?)
“Dreadful” and its similar adverb form. I’ve used that word a dreadfully significant amount of times.

20. Anything else?
Tom Cruise, make a choice for crying out loud: Scientology or film? Nope. I’ll leave it all to your film blogs. For those of you who don’t blog, I’d recommend bookmarking this page so you can come back to it every once in a while. There are some great blogs I’m connected with, most of which you’d really enjoy.

Peace wherever and whenever possible.

  • Quick Recommendations

    No film is recommendable to everyone, because if it strongly appeals to many audiences, it's going to be poorly received by at least one audience. These 25 classics, however, I would recommend to eight and a half, if not nine in every ten people.
