Visitation + boring movie quiz

»My folks came for a visit. Here they are pictured drinking some coffee. It was good to see them. We went to the ROM (worst museum on the planet) and snuck into a staff function and stole their coookies and coffee. Serves them right for not providing any signage to help you navigate the damn building. They don’t make history come alive there so much as kill it and place it in a glass case to gather dust.

» Also, speaking of visitors, spent my lunch break with Elgin yesterday. It was good to see a friendly face from home. Ironically, the first time we’ve actually hung out.

Name a movie that you have seen more than ten times.
Star Wars is the only one I know I’ve seen more than ten times.

Name a movie that you’ve seen multiple times in the theater.
Pirates of the Caribean. Only twice. The Bloom does not scare me off.

Name an actor who would make you more inclined to see a movie.
Johnny Depp doesn’t steer me too far wrong. Most of the time.

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

Name a movie that you can and do quote from.
Big Trouble in Little China

Name a movie musical that you know all of the lyrics to all of the songs.
Nightmare Before Christmas would be the closest.

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

Name a movie that you would recommend everyone see.
I can’t think of a single movie “everyone” would enjoy. So… Bloodrayne.

Name a movie that you own.
Brain Candy

Name an actor who launched his or her entertainment career in another medium but who has surprised you with his or her acting skills.
Marky Mark

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

Ever made out in a movie?

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

Ever walked out of a movie?

Name a movie that made you cry in the theater.
Batman Begins.

Nope. It’s the yellow death. But oh, so tasty. “Topping” scares em though.

How often do you go to the movies (as opposed to renting them or watching them at home)?
Not often enough. One every 3 months at this rate… Used to go to matinees weekly.

What’s the last movie you saw in the theater?
Indy IV. Meh.

What’s your favorite genre of movie?
Big Trouble in Little China.

What’s the first movie you remember seeing in the theater?
Star Wars in 1977.

What movie do you wish you had never seen?

What is the weirdest movie you enjoyed?
I don’t really notice when movies are “weird” per se.  Probably something like Spirited Away is as good an answer as any.

What is the scariest movie you’ve seen?
Pan’s Labyrinth scarred me. But I was expecting something more Tim Burtony. I went in ill-prepared and was blindsided with eyeballs in hands and fairies having their guts sucked out like the pits of cherries.

What is the funniest movie you’ve seen?
The Bank Dick.

    why for you cut yourself out of that pic with your fam? it’s good for a chuckle. In fact, the whole things is funny. You should have quoted your father as he sat there almost asleep with coffee in hand saying, “I have NOOOOOOOOOOO stress, NOOOOOOOOOO stress at all in my life.” that was the best part. your parents ROCK

      I wasn’t in that one. The one I was in is not so flattering for any of us. I have to show you the one with you doing the rawk hands though.

        oh i see. So, it is ME who was cut out of the photo. I don’t like when people cut me out of photos, nor do i like to be unknowingly posted on LJ, so i guess you had to do what you had to do. Yes, i would like to see the rawk hands, i never did see them.

        This is not the photo you were in.

    So that must be why you don’t get why I enjoy Pan’s Labyrinth. It was on DVD before I saw it, so I had time to learn that it wasn’t going to be a happy ending. 🙂

    Your parents are so cute.
    Pan’s Labyrinth was over-rated, imo, but I almost always love Marky Mark. I feel that statement might misrepresent me somehow.
    Realizing you are living alone in big city, I suddenly felt protective and concerned. Maybe it was jealousy that you’ll likely never come back to Nanaimo. Although the air is so fresh here lately.
