Opening Credits: Favorite Childhood movie
This must be a tie between Star Wars (New Hope) and The Wizard of Oz. I watched them both whenever I went to my grandma’s as we didn’t have VCR at home. Although as this is opening credits, I got to choose Star Wars! What’s more classic?
Waking up: A film that got you out of a movie watching slump
Well, that actually just happened. I hadn’t watched any films during this month until the day before yesterday and that was The Change-Up that I watched. Hotness of Olivia Wilde gets me out of bed.
School: A movie you had to watch for school that you ended up loving
Hard one. I got to say Catch Me If You Can. I had seen it before I watched it again and again for my Scriptwriting course but I started to like it much more after analysing it to threads.
Falling In Love: A director you love so much you want to watch all of their movies
David Fincher is my longest lasting love.
Fight: Movie with the best action sequences
The Dark Knight. I love those thrilling driving sequences. Very cool bombings also.
Break up: A movie you didn’t finish and do not intend to finish
Four Rooms. I just hated it. A lot.
Hanging With Friends: Movie you think everyone else should watch
Begin Again. I love, love, love it! It made me fly the first time I saw it and world looked so much better afterwards.
Breakdown: Movie that seriously affected you/had you crying your eyes out
I’m a huge cry-baby, so there are many but the most… Brokeback Mountain. I might not cry the most but the sadness of it is heart-breaking. “Jack, I swear.” I just watched that final scene (spoiler, obviously) again when I looked it up and yes, it made me tear up.
Roadtrip: You favorite series (more than 3 films)
Star Wars. Hands down. Just ditch the first three. I never want to watch them again.
Flashback: Your favorite movie from 5 years ago
Five years ago? I’m just gonna go with my fave that was released about that time. And that’ll be… Wow, there are some very good films released 2010 and -11… But as a favorite that I watch again and again because of them:
(That’s Thor if you didn’t realise.)
Getting Back Together: What movie can you not stop re-watching
Titanic. I must have seen it something like 50 times.
Wedding: A movie that is really special to you
Fellowship of the Rings. It reminds me how much I actually love movies and how much I want to be in the industry.
Moment of Triumph: Longest movie you’ve ever watch
I think it must be Gone With the Wind but it’s not very triumphant as I love the film! But the one that I struggled with is Tarkovsky’s The Mirror. I just don’t get it.
Death Scene: Movie you wish had ended differently
Friday Night Lights. It is just let down. Way too realistic. And it’s just unbelievably sad if someone’s best days are in high school.
Funeral: Movie with the best or worst epilogue
The best: Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Part 2. I still love the fact how he named his son.
