I've been sitting on this meme invitation for the last week or so. Shame. So this is me rectifying that.
1. What was your first movie going experience?
I have absolutely no idea what was my first but I know The Wizard of Oz was an early one, and that’s one of the reasons I’ve always been such a lover of Judy Garland.
3. What is your guilty pleasure movie?
Le Divorce…but I don’t really feel guilty about that. It’s a good movie that unfortunately many people don’t realise. A bad movie that I like nonetheless…Charlie’s Angel: Full Throttle…but no guilt there either. I don’t think the word is in my vocabulary.
4. You have compiled a list of your top 100 movies. Which movies don’t make the cut?
Well many, of course. Citizen Kane and Schindler’s List, because I don’t care for either that much. Lawrence of Arabia and The Ten Commandments – because there’s not enough space. Bright Star and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button because movies released 2008 and later are not included on the list.
5. Which movie(s) do you compulsively watch over and over again?
Gosford Park, The English Patient, Howards End, An Education, Shakespeare in Love. Compulsive is a word I know well.
6. Classic(s) you’re embarrassed you haven’t seen?
Mean Streets, Interiors. The former because Scorsese is my God, and I haven’t seen enough of his early work and the latter because Woody’s dramatic foray has gotten so much press (and it stars Diane, Maureen and Geraldine) that I should at least see it to make a deicison.
7. What movie posters do you have hanging on your wall?
Not the poster kind of person, but The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King’s poster hangs proudly in my (old) room – now known as the bookroom.
I’m not tagging anyone, too lazy. If you’re feeling meme-ish have your fill and answer the questions…I’m passing it on to you.
