Movie Stuff

Found this on the scribester's blog a month ago and thought I'd give it a go myself.

1) One movie that made you laugh: "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" will always crack me up.

2) One movie that made you cry: I always get teary-eyed at the end when I watch "It's a Wonderful Life" and "Mr. Holland's Opus." I'm sure there are other movies that have that effect on me but these two films do it every time.

3) One movie you loved as a child (and still do): Syrupy and sappy, but I don't care. That movie is "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang." I love the music box scene near the end of the film.

4) One movie you have you seen more than once: I've seen lots and lots and lots of movies more than once. Let's just say that if I like a movie, I can watch it multiple times without getting tired of it.

5) One movie you are embarrassed to admit seeing: I'm usually not embarrassed to watch any movie. Heck, I made it through "The Notebook" and lived to tell about it, so I think I'm in good shape.

6) One movie you hated: I'll give you two, both I had to review for BIG SCREEN - "Apocalypse Now" and "Death Proof."

7) One movie that scared you: I don't get freaked out scared watching movies. I get more scared by certain movies that have a realistic edge to them. Right now I'd say "Arlington Road" with Tim Robbins and Joan Cusack and "Enemy of the State" with Will Smith and Gene Hackman are two films that left that kind of impression on me.

8) One movie that bored you: "In Her Shoes" with Cameron Diaz and Toni Collette.

9) One movie that made you happy: I agree with the Scribester. "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" was exactly what I was hoping for and had a strong feeling I would get.

10) One movie that made you miserable: What, me miserable watching a movie? Watching movies in general is fun. If I'm truly miserable watching a movie, I'll turn it off instead of suffering through it.

11) One move you were brave enough to see: Since I don't get freaked out scared watching movies, I don't consider this a legitimate question.

12) One movie character you fell in love with: Easy. As a young impressionable lad, Princess Leia from the original "Star Wars" trilogy. Sadly, Carrie Fisher has not aged well.

13) Last movie you saw on the big screen: Well, I'm going to see "The Dark Knight" tomorrow, so that will be it.

14) Next movie you want to see on the big screen: "Get Smart" because I liked the television show reruns and "Star Wars: Clone Wars" because, as a longtime fan of the series, I have to respect the powers that be Lucasfilm, Ltd.

Am I the only person who preferred the Life of Brian?

Life of Brian was funny, but not as quoteable.

I didn't think Life of Brian was as clever to be honest, but I do like it quite a bit, just not as much as Holy Grail.

"You're not my king, I didn't vote for you!" Lol.

See now I'm going to be doing that all day...

I don't remember any good quotes from Life Of Brian except for that song, "Always look on the bright side of death" lmao.

"Life's a piece of shit, when you look at it" hahahahaha :)

You don't remember the big debate amongst the socialists over whether or not Eric idle who wanted to be a woman should be granted rights as an individual named "Loretta?" LOL

Most quotable line, John Cleese to Brian, "But you ARE the messiah, lord! And I should know, I've followed a few!"

oh yeah, when they were sitting on the steps of the temple lol! that was good but not as good as the argument King Arthur has with the peasants on how he became the King (You don't vote for a king! Some watery tart throws a cymitar at you and you think that makes you king? Come watch me, I'm being oppressed! etc etc etc.)

Do I even need to mention the Black Knight scene, lol:)

I think John Cleese somehow makes things even funnier than they are supposed to be.
