Movie Q & A Thing

Well, I generally don’t like these sorts of things, but what the hell. Kevin over at The Pork Chop Express linked me in this, so I will do my best.

1.  What was your first movie-going experience?

The earliest movie I can remember seeing was 1985’s Follow That Bird, the Big Bird movie. I loved it. I doubt it holds up.

2.  How many DVDs do you own?

Eh, over 100 but I’ve been trying to slim it down lately. I used to want an archive of all these movies I love, but I realize now that a core set of watchable favorites is more ideal.

3.  What is your guilty pleasure movie?

I don’t really feel guilty about the stuff I like. Not that I don’t like some trash, just that I have aged into not caring so much what others think about my tastes. That being said, I like Weekend at Bernie’s way too much. So awful, but so so good.

4.  You’ve compiled a list of your top 100 movies.  Which films didn’t make the cut?

Weekend at Bernie’s. No really, I don’t make it a habit of making lists, especially one of one-hundred films. I’d have to have a huge, months long Battle Royale tournament to decide something like that. Just off the top of my head I’ll say Lawrence of Arabia. When I see it on the big screen at some point, I’ll probably change my mind though. I feel like I haven’t really seen it until then.

5.  Which movie(s) do you compulsively watch over and over again?

The Big Lebowski, Ghostbusters, Back to the Future. I could probably watch Inglourious Basterds a lot and not get tired of it as well.

6.  Classic(s) you’re ashamed to admit you haven’t seen yet?

Um, this is a hard one as I’ve seen most of the big ones. I’ve never seen Giant. I like James Dean and it looks good, but something about it just makes me not care. One of these days.

7.  What movie posters are hanging in your room?

At the moment none. Rolled up in my storage are:

A Clockwork Orange
Enter the Dragon
Dawn of the Dead (signed by Tom Savini and Ken Foree)
L.A. Confidential
and probably a couple I’m forgetting.

I’ll tag JP @ J.P.’s I’m Outta Here Movie Thoughts in this because I know he hasn’t done it yet.

  1. Man, the mildly delusional side of me wants to keep on thinking that my first movie experience was something fantastic like E.T. or Raiders. But these shameful repressed memories of mine keep telling me it was either Benji: The Hunted or Soul Man…… fuuuuuck.

    • hahahaha, I definitely remember seeing Benji: The Hunted with my grandparents.

  2. Nice List! I love to say that I find myself always watching Back to the Future for awhile. Check out my list:

  3. I love the Big Lebowski.
    This was interesting. I might do it one of these days when I have time.

    BTW, I have started posting blogs on Once Upon A Time In China

        • You must! It’s such a fun movie. I need to re-watch parts 2 and 3. I haven’t seen those in years.

  4. I just rewatched parts 2 and 3 over the Summer. I love part 2 especially. If I have time I might blog about that one as well.

    BTW I find The Big Lebowski eminently watchable as well.

    • Yeah I remember Part 2 being excellent and Part 3 less so. Gonna have to watch them again. I don’t think I ever saw the ones without Jet Li. I doubt they’re very good, but I’m curious.

      Big Lebowski is hands down one of the best movies of all time. Easily the funniest Coen Bros movie for me.
