Movie Confession Blogathon
I heisted this from Andy Watches Movies because it seemed like fun! 🙂
Without further ado…
Which classic movie don’t you like/can’t enjoy and why?
Psycho because it bores me to tears. I understand how ground breaking it was and all but it’s so slow and I’ve actually never even finished it. I was much more interested in learning how they filmed it (when I was around 11 I went to Universal Studios in Florida and there was a whole attraction where they showed you how the shower scene was filmed and that scene in Birds, etc.)
Which ten classic movies haven’t you seen yet?
Most likely tons. 😉
- The Godfather
- 2001: A Space Odyssey
- Annie Hall
- The Birth of a Nation (although it is in my Netflix queue because it’s on streaming now)
- Taxi Driver
- Close Encounters of the Third Kind
- American Graffiti
- Citizen Kane
- The Great Train Robbery
Have you ever sneaked into another movie at the cinema?
I’ve snuck beer into the movies before…
Which actor/actress do you think is overrated?
Scarlett Johansson. Once upon a time, I thought she was fabulous but she hasn’t done a single thing in recent years (that I can think of at the moment anyway) that makes me think she’s anything other than just a cute girl. I dunno, I think most actors/actresses these days are overrated and are one note (not ALL just most).
From which big director have you never seen any movie (and why)?
I think I’ll have to go along the lines of Andy’s answer here: The only one I can think of is Charlie Chaplin. I’ve never seen a Chaplin film (bits and pieces is all).
Which movie do you love, but is generally hated?
Hmmm….maybe Soap Dish? I’m not sure if it’s hated per se but I’ve yet to come across anyone who loves it as much as I do. It’s from the 80s and has this amazing cast and is about the backstage antics of a soap opera and it’s pure ridiculousness.
Have you ever been “one of those annoying people” at the cinema?
Good grief, no. Plus I try to only ever go to matinees in the middle of the week so as to avoid those people.
Did you ever watch a movie, which you knew in advance would be bad, just because of a specific actor/actress was in it? Which one and why?
None because of a specific actor or actress, I just watch movies I know will be bad because I love them.
Did you ever not watch a specific movie because it had subtitles?
Maybe as a teenager or in my early 20s but I much prefer foreign films now. That way I can read AND watch (I can’t just watch a movie, I need to be doing at least 2 other things).
Are there any movies in your collection that you have had for more than five years and never watched?
Nope. I watch everything I buy or get. It may take a couple of months but I keep them in a stack until I work my way through.
Which are the worst movies in your collection and why do you still own them?
The $5 collections from the Walmart bin, lol. I have quite a few but while they’re horrible they can sometimes be uber fun so I keep them around!
Do you have any confessions about your movie watching setup at home?
I have a major old school t.v. that I accidentally locked the front panel to so if I ever lose my remote, I’m pretty screwed.
Any other confessions you want to make?
My secret shame:
I LOVE dance and cheerleading movies. I have seen every single Bring it On (more than once) and I’ve watched not only Honey with Jessica Alba but Honey 2 with Kat Graham.
