I love a good movie meme

I even love bad ones. But this one is pretty good (lifted from Culture kills). Of course I’m the special kid in school so I’m probably the last one to do this, but that’s about par for the course. I just got rid of my last pair of Z Cavaricci pants like 5 years ago.

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

I can name more than one – Flash Gordon, Weird Science, Caddyshack, and Nightmare on Elm Street for starters.

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

The Empire Strikes Back and Private Parts come to mind, although I know there’s more.

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

Edward Norton, hands down. Or hands up.

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

Robin Williams and Eddie Murphy. Two great talents who have completely turned to crap. I died a little inside when I saw the trailer for RV.

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

Well of course there’s Monty Python and the Holy Grail, but that’s like the geek equivalent of getting your G.E.D. Everyone quotes from that. So other than that, Caddyshack and National Lampoon’s Vacation.

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

No surprise hereChicago.

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

See above.

8. Name a movie that you would recommend everyone see.

The Hustler.

9. Name a movie that you own.

Well that’s a large list, but for the sake of brevity – I recently acquired the first Friday the 13th on DVD.

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

O.J. Simpson. And I don’t mean his stint in the Naked Gun movies either…

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

I try to catch one when I visit Cape Cod with the missus. Last year it was X-Men: The Last Stand.

12. Ever made out in a movie?

No, but Iron Chef used to be quite the mood-setter.

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

The last Lord of the Rings movie.

14. Ever walked out of a movie?

No, but I came damn close during City Hall and The Talented Mr. Ripley.

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

I can’t remember any specific ones, but once in awhile I’ll get caught off guard by a chick flick. The devil take my sensitive side!

16. Popcorn?

Almost always, but hold the semi-congealed, yellow, butter-esque goo please.

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

Much to my wife’s chagrin, not often anymore. Simply too many mouth-breathing idiots out there with eardrum-piercing ringtones and a lack of anything approaching a sense of etiquette. And that’s just the ushers!

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

I think it was Borat.

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

Comedy.

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

The Empire Strikes Back. I’m pretty certain the film broke about halfway through.  No such luck with The Phantom Menace.

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

The entire Star Wars “prequel” trilogy, with the possible exception of Part III.

22. What is the weirdest movie you enjoyed?

Hmmm, does A Clockwork Orange count?

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

I don’t scare easy. I’ve been spooked, unnerved, and even a little unsettled. But I don’t remember being scared watching a movie.

24. What is the funniest movie you’ve seen?I have to go with Borat here. I don’t know how well it will hold up under repeated viewings (probably not well), but I laughed harder than I ever have seeing it in the theater.
