(Okay, I was suppose to post this yesterday but thanks to crummy internet service, it's being posted now.)
Wendell of Dell on Movies has given me this award, and I thank him for that. Right, let's get this over with.
The rules are as followed:
- Answer the 11 questions given by the person who nominated you.
- Nominate other bloggers (up to 11) and give them 11 questions to answer.
(There's also a rule to tell the readers eleven things about yourself but I'm skipping that one for now.)
2. Name an actor or actress whose films you try not to see, no matter what. Tell us why? James Franco. He was good in Milk but overall, I try to avoid his incredibly punchable face.
3. What movie would you like to see get a sequel that never got one? Galaxy Quest. Not sure if it would work as well without Alan Rickman...
4. Where is your ideal seat in a movie theater? Somewhere in the back row, an aisle seat preferably.
5. Other than in a theater, how do you watch most movies? (Redbox, Netflix, online, Blu-Rays/DVDs you own, etc.) Depends. Sometimes Netflix, sometimes movies I borrow from the local library. But most of the time it's stuff I have on my DVR.
6. Name a movie you love from a genre you hate. Well, it's more along the lines of "genre I don’t regularly watch", but Rio Bravo.
7. Name a movie you hate from a genre you love. Friggin' Crash, man. AMPAS has to do a hell of a lot to make up for that.
8. What classic era director (1960s or earlier) would've made a great superhero movie? Why? Maybe it wouldn't be a great movie but with Buster Keaton at the helm, it would certainly be daring as all hell. Have you seen the stunts he did for his films? They could've killed him easily had he not taken the necessary precautions. Just imagine if he had someone else doing those stunts.
9. What currently working director would've made a great classic era noir? Why? Todd Haynes. If Far from Heaven and Carol are anything to go by (as well as the HBO mini-series adaptation of Mildred Pierce), the man knows how to capture an era that has long since passed.
10. What famous person would you like to see get a biopic that hasn't had one? I know he only passed away a few years ago but a biopic of Peter O'Toole would be gold. (Also it would be an almost cruel irony if whomever played him got an Oscar for their work.)
11. You're going to spend the rest of your life all alone on a deserted island. You're allowed to bring only three movies with you. What are they and why? Singin' in the Rain (because it's an absolute delight), On the Waterfront (because the acting's great in it), and The Godfather Part II (just for something to pass a lot of time).
