So, as I mentioned on my Monday Corner Movienut14 (writer of Life of a Cinephile and Bibliophile) has created a new meme, of which I have been tagged. Since I'm such a nice guy (self labeled) I figured, why not? So, here's how this one goes: MovieNut14 has asked 7 film related questions, and now it's my turn to answer them (not all that hard, right?).
Beware: guilty admissions follow.
1) What was you first movie-going experience?
Honestly I don't remember. I will say as a kid I had such an incalculable amount of energy my mother would only ever take me to the dollar theater (where my love for them all began) because if I got out of control she was only out a couple of bucks.
2) How many DVDs do you own?
Gurgle. I have my list of movies owned, here. Total count (according to that - may not be 100% up to date) is 149 (wahoo?).
3) What is your guilty pleasure movie?
A guilty pleasure? Hmmmm. Armageddon probably counts but that's more nostalgia (same goes for Night at the Roxbury - still laugh every time, don't judge).
Keeping it modern I'd say Southland Tales. I thought it was hilariously off whack, but that's just me.
4) You have compiled a list of your top 100 movies. Which movies didn't make the cut?
The number of times I say "that should have been in my top 100" a day is a number I dare not even begin to count. To just name a few: The Departed, King Kong (original), Moby Dick (1956 version), Treasure of the Sierra Madre, etc.
5) Which movie(s) do you compulsively watch over and over again?
Right now: Serenity, Sunshine (2007), The Matrix, Untouchables, Unleashed, The Good the Bad and the Ugly. But this list is always changing.
6) Classic(s) you're embarrassed to admit you haven't seen yet?
My major problem with classics I haven't seen is often they're ones I haven't heard of (or don't hear of often). On my episode of Matineecast I said I haven't seen Das Boot, unfortunately that hasn't changed.
7) What movie posters do you have hanging on your wall?
Here's a guilty admission for you: none. That's right, despite my incurable love for movies I own 0 movie posters. It's not for a lack of want, I just prefer food over wall hanging (to be honest my walls are incredibly bare).
So, now the tagging begins. I'm only going to do two. And to be fair I know I just tagged some of you so don't worry about it.
