Movie meme

1 Movie you love with a passion.
Time Bandits.

2. Movie you vow to never watch.
Carrie. Because the cover of the book gave me nightmares when I was a kid - I used to run past it on the shelves in Woolworths with my hands over my eyes.

3. Movie that literally left you speechless.
Mulholland Drive. Also frightened, shaken & freaked out, in a good way.

4. Movie you always recommend.
The Big Easy, because not many people have seen it but it's so sexy and funny and good. Though they always chop the last 5 minutes when they show it on TV, which is sacrilege.

5. Actor/actress you always watch, no matter how crappy the movie.
James McEvoy, I draw the line at Gnomeo & Juliet though.

6. Actor/actress you don’t get the appeal for.
Matthew McConnaughey, I find him repulsive.

7. Actor/actress, living or dead, you’d love to meet.
No no, they are for staring at on the screen and fantasizing about, not for meeting. Though I bet Mae West would have been a riot to go out with.

8. Sexiest actor/actress you’ve seen. (Picture required!)


9. Dream cast.
Good lord, have you seen the cast for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy?

10. Favorite actor pairing.
I really enjoyed Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch in Sherlock. Great casting. Sherlock was brilliant. I also fancied them both immensely. Hurrah! (no it's not a movie. I cheated.)

12. Favorite decade for movies
The thirties & forties were better for women in the movies all round.

It really started to go horribly wrong for us in the 50s.

13. Chick flick or action movie?
Action movies can be great (even when dumb) but chick flicks are usually only indifferent. If they're any good, they're not really chick flicks, they're dramas.

14. Hero, villain or anti-hero?
Hm. Batman - boring. Joker - interesting. Women aren't allowed to be anti-heros, except for in one of my favourite ever ever films, Vagabonde by Agnes Varda. See it if you can, it's a piece of work.

15. Black and white or color?
Why not both?
