Day 9: A Movie You Never Get Tired of Watching

 

50 First Dates

 

When I first saw an ad for this movie, I misunderstood.  I thought it was about two people who kept trying to have the perfect first date, something would mess it up, and they’d try again another day.  Yeah, I wasn’t paying attention at all.

It wasn’t until we arrived at the theatre that my then-boyfriend suggested 50 First Dates.  I’m glad he did.  It was love at first sight with this movie.

 

What movie do you never tire of watching?

 –Minor spoilers–

Day 8: A Movie You Thought You Wouldn’t Like, But Ended Up Loving

 

Taken

 


Complete action/suspense movie where a man’s daughter gets kidnapped for sex trafficking?  No, thanks.

Said man pursues his daughter, killing all the bastards involved who lie in his path without repercussions (in the actual movie)?  Yes.  Yes.  Just yes.

Of course, when it was over, Hubby started pointing out the things that were wrong with it.

Hubby: “He could never get away with all of that. He just created an international incident.”

Me: “Shut your mouth.  It’s perfect.”

 

Is there a movie you thought you’d hate, but ended up loving?

Day 7: Favourite Disney Villain

 

Loki in The Avengers.

 

 

The only villain I like.  He’s the only reason this option didn’t get trashed.  I don’t generally like villains, but in The Avengers I was almost rooting for Loki. (Almost!)

Tom Hiddleston as a human being keeps Loki fascinating in my book.  When an actor turns out to not be so great of a person, it makes it hard to still enjoy their great characters.  Hiddleston is awesome.  He’s respectable, a gentleman, and great at what he does.

 

A man created these pie charts… then, a woman corrected it.

 

Who is your favourite Disney villain?

Day 6: Favourite Soundtrack From a Movie

 

Home Alone

Why not have Christmas in July?

I have to pick the entire musical contents of this movie.  I dislike none of the songs, and it’s somehow not quite Christmas without listening to the music from Home Alone (even if it’s just by watching the movie).

Sure, I could have picked any number of songs from a lot of movies for their great scores (such as Spider-Man 2 for every song, or X-Men: First Class especially for “Magneto“), but I have to go with this one.

 

What’s your favourite movie soundtrack?

Day 3: Your Favourite Movie Trilogy/Saga

 

Back to the Future

 

back-to-the-future

 

Another one that won’t sway me with a debate.  Yes, each movie has its pros and cons, but overall I think this is the best movie trilogy ever made.

I generally hate sequels — most of the time they’re a huge letdown.  I always give them a chance, though, because you never know which ones are going to be an exception.

Back to the Future was meant to be a stand-alone movie; however, with the way it ended, fans demanded a sequel.  I think they did a brilliant job of making it work, especially by giving it a feeling of completion at the end of part three.

Just for kicks and giggles, I’m going to leave this here:

Day 2: A Kids’ Movie That’s Not Very Kid-Friendly

 

Who Framed Roger Rabbit

 

11208219_ori

 

I don’t think it’s actually considered a kids’ movie, but I watched an edited-for-TV version a lot when I was a kid.  I saw it once as an adult and was surprised my mum didn’t have a problem with it.

Eventually, she did ban us from seeing it, but not because of the blatant sexual innuendos and the violence.  It was because she thought the main bad guy was too scary for us.

Of course, when it came to “scary” things, she used herself at our age as a guide instead of actually gauging our fear level.  Movies have rarely, if ever, scared me.  Not even horror movies.

Anyway, I digress.

 

What’s a kids’ movie you don’t think is very kid-friendly?

Day 1: Best New Movie You Saw Last Year

 

The Martian

THE-MARTIAN-movie-poster2

 

There’s no debating this choice.  Science, Mars, potatoes, and Matt Damon.

I’m not going to delve too deeply into this movie, because I’ve talked about it a bit in previous blogs (here and here).  I am, however, going to highly recommend it, again.

And conclude with a shameless plug for The Mars Generation 😇.

 

What’s the best new movie you saw last year?

30 Day Movie Challenge 2 (NEW!)

30-DMC

I love movies.  Unless you’re new here, you know this.  I can read all day, but by evening I decide it’s time to watch a movie so I can relax before bedtime.

I keep going back to my post about the 30-Day Movie Challenge and decided I wanted to do it again.  I made a new post using the same questions, and had as many different answers as I could, but I wanted something new.

Here’s a fresh list.  Most of the topics are compiled from various other challenges while some are my own.  It guarantees that I won’t have any options that don’t particularly apply to me, or are just too hard to decide.

I’m also going to do this a bit differently.  I’ll leave the list of topics here, but will also do my best to make posts about the movies I watch to suit them.  (Movies I’ve already written about will be linked.)  I will link my choices to the topics here once they are posted.

 

1. Best new movie you saw last year
2. A kids’ movie that’s not very kid-friendly
3. Your favourite movie trilogy/saga
4. Favourite Disney movie
5. A movie that makes you happy
6. Favourite soundtrack from a movie
7. Favourite Disney villain
8. A movie you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving
9. A movie you never get tired of watching
10. You practically know this movie’s whole script
11. Your favorite director
12. Favourite cameo
13. A movie everyone raves about, but you hate
14. A movie you could watch on repeat
15. Favourite animated movie
16. Favourite chick flick
17. A movie that reminds you of home
18. Favourite main character
19. Favourite subgenre (detailed info here)
20. Last movie you saw in a cinema
21. A movie that made you think WTF AM I WATCHING?
22. A movie you feel didn’t live up to the hype
23. A movie you tell people you’ve seen but haven’t (or haven’t finished)
24. A movie that inspires/encourages your dreams
25. A movie from your childhood
26. A movie from your teenage years
27. A movie from your university years
28. A classic movie you love
29. A movie you wish you could live in
30. The first movie you remember seeing
