The movie meme.

 Shamelessly copped from Paula.

1. Name a movie you have seen more than 10 times.

Being There

2. Name a movie you’ve seen multiple times in the theater.

I can only think of one – Star Trek:First Contact. I saw it the first time because I wanted to see it. The second time was because I was with a woman who wanted to see it, and I didn’t care, I just wanted to see HER.

3. Name an actor who would make you more inclined to see a movie.

Johnny Depp – no one in films today creates characters as well as him.

4. Name an actor who would make you less likely to see a movie.

I was just discussing him today – Val Kilmer. Most SNL alumni are deal-killers, as well.

5.Name a movie you can and do quote from.

Besides Blazing Saddles? A Clockwork Orange.  “Come get it in the yarbles, if you’ve got any yarbles, eunich jelly thou!”

6. Name a movie musical in which you know all of the lyrics to all of the songs.

I come pretty darn close with “Jesus Christ Superstar”.

7. Name a movie you have been known to sing along with.

Besides “A Clockwork Orange”? How about “Life of Brian”.

8. Name a movie you would recommend everyone see.

They are legion. “Joyeux Noel” is great, and for sheer laughs you should see “NBT (Never Been Thawed)”

9. Name a movie you own.


10. Name an actor who launched his/her entertainment career in another medium but who has surprised you with his/her acting chops.

Will Smith.

11. Have you ever seen a movie in a drive-in? If so, what?

No, I’m…….young.

12. Ever made out in a movie?


13. Name a movie you keep meaning to see but you just haven’t gotten around to yet.

They are also legion. “Casino” is one.

14. Ever walked out of a movie?

No, but I can think of a couple I should have.

15. Name a movie that made you cry in the theater.

I’ve never cried in the theater.

16. Popcorn?

Depends on the theater. Usually yes, but not at the Century Rio. Blech.

17. How often do you go to the movies (as opposed to renting them or watching them at home)?

Very rarely anymore. It’s been a couple years since I went to a theater.

18. What’s the last movie you saw in the theater?

I don’t remember.

19. What’s your favorite/preferred genre of movie?

I like a variety of genres, I wouldn’t say I have one favorite.

20. What’s the first movie you remember seeing in the theater?

Some cartoon thing that involved monkeys (NOT “The Jungle Book”). Other than that, Disney stuff.

21. What movie do you wish you had never seen?

“Seven”. The ending made me want to punch the writer in the nose.

22. What is the weirdest movie you enjoyed?

Probably “Eating Raoul”. Or “Allegro Non Troppo.”

23. What is the scariest movie you’ve seen?

The original version of “The Haunting”.

24. What is the funniest movie you’ve seen?

Still “Blazing Saddles.”



  1. Oop, I’m stealing this…

  2. Most SNL alumni are deal-killers, as well.

    Except Wil Ferrel for me. If you haven’t seen Stranger Than Fiction, go rent it.

  3. The SNL exceptions for me would be mostly original cast. I did like two Adam Sandler movies, but unfortunately I’ve seen more than that. In fact, one of the two I liked didn’t have him starring, just a supporting role.

  4. Gah, Adam Sandler. Barf. Loved JCS though! Great songs.

  5. Paula- did you know that the guy who played Peter later had a long-running career in porn?

  6. I know nothing about any porn. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it. Not that kind of sticking. Sheesh! Um, who was he?

  7. Heh heh heh … The guy playing “Peter” had a career in porn.

    Heh heh heh. You said Peter.

    Ook ook.

  8. Your #9 was my #8!
    And your #24 was my… #24.

  9. I had to Google it…. here’s his filmography.

    While looking this up, I found a site that says that Ron Jeremy was one of Herod’s pool guests!

  10. Yes, most SNL alums are not so good in film. Of course, there are exceptions: Bill Murray, Eddie Murphy (He’s hit and miss, though; depends on the material), Will Ferrell, John Belushi, and Dan Ackroyd. I would have loved Gilda Radner to have flourished in films, but she just didn’t find her groove. Too bad, since she was one of the brightest lights the females have had over the years on SNL.

    Life of Brian! Always look on the bright side of life…whistle along everyone!

  11. Joe, I love the list of that guy’s filmography…there’s one called “Welcome To My Face 2!”

  12. “Gah, Adam Sandler. Barf.”

    Sandler’s been very surprising to me, because while he’s done some really horrible movies, Punch Drunk Love and Spanglish were both great movies in which he was impressive. And now Reign Over Me is coming out, with Don Cheadle, and I gotta say it looks intriguing.

    Looney, I LOVED Stranger than Fiction! Just watched it a couple weeks ago and thought it should have been nominated for Best Screenplay.
