Movie MeMe

Stolen from Shannon Stacey:

Total numbers of films I own:
Probably well over 100, even not counting the kiddie stuff.

Last film I watched:
Good Will Hunting, a Netflix selection, preceded immediately by Napoleon Dynamite. GWH—nicely done. ND—just “huh?” Not award-worthy, IMO.

Five favorite films I either watch frequently or that mean a lot to me:

1. Galaxy Quest— It just has so many quotable lines.

2. Aliens— Ripley is one of the original Bombshell heroines: “Get away from her, you bitch!

3. Princess Bride—Which was also a book I loved—totally romantic.

4. Lord of the Ring—all three, for a hundred reasons

5. Pirates of the Caribbean—Because it’s possibly the last summer movie good enough for me to see multiple times. Plus…duh, Orlando Bloom!

Worst film you’ve ever had to endure:
They All Laughed for older movies and Catwoman for modern movies. Yes, Catwoman beats out Gigli, but only barely beats out War of the Worlds.

Favorite movie quote: See above. :)

Favorite movie adapted from a book:
Lord of the Rings. Before that came out and forever superseded any previous and future films, it was The Hunt for Red October, because for once the movie was so much better than the book.

One book I’d like to see made into a movie:
