Movie Meme

A whole lotta people were tagged over at McVane (click link above) & were asked to answer the following questions:

1. Last movie watched?
On tv- Top Hat with Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers
In theater- Charlie & the Chocolate Factory

2. List 5 movies that are either personally signifigant or that you watch often (in no particular order):

1.Lion in Winter with Katherine Hepburn & Peter O'Toole
2.Amelie starring Audrey Tautou
3.The Triplets of Belleville- an animated mystery set in 1920's era France concerning a kidnapped French cyclist & the devoted mother who goes looking for him. Silent, but the score is excellent period jazz.
4. In America- An Irish film, loosely based on director Jim Sheridan's life. An Irish family emigrates to modern New York City's Hell's Kitchen, where they relearn loving & living & believing in the goodness of humanity. Told through the eyes of their two daughters.
5. Lord of the Rings Trilogy

3. Worst Movie Michael- starring John Travolta

4. Favorite Quote- This is from the Fellowship of the Rings. Frodo says to Gandalf,"I wish none of this had happened." Gandalf answers," So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.."

5. Favorite adaptation from a book- Lord of the Rings trilogy

6.Book you would like to see as a movie- Like Maili, I don't believe historical romances would be properly made, but there are quite a few other books that would be neat. A live action version of Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. Some of the Anne McCaffrey books. Although I hear they're being made for tv.

My favorite movies include the film noir classics "Pickup On South Street," "The Big Sleep," and "Out of the Past." Favorite westerns are "High Noon" and "Tombstone." Others that are worn out are "Sliding Doors" with Gwynth Paltrow, "Persuasion" with Amanda Root, "Pride and Prejudice," oh, just too many to count!
