My original plan had been to write a more personal post today but when it came time to put fingers to keyboard, my enthusiasm waned. I didn’t have the words or heart for it. Or maybe I wasn’t ready to really dig into my feelings yet. So I put it aside for another day. It will still inside me, whether I like it or not. Thankfully, I knew exactly who to steal … I mean borrow from for today’s post. 😀 Erin did a fun post on movies last week and I can always talk about movies. Always and forever.
Most Hated Movie of All-Time: Batman and Robin. George Clooney is a great actor but a very bad, no good, terrible Batman. I take this very personally because Batman is my favorite superhero. I haven’t bothered with the “new” Batman because nope.
Movie I Think is Overrated: Avatar. The special effects are spectacular but the actual story is not. I mean “unobtainium” — really? That’s the best you can do, Mr. Cameron?
Movie I Think is Underrated: Jurassic Park 3. I blanked at this one. At the moment, I am watching Jurassic World, which reminded me that I didn’t like Jurassic Park 2 but liked Jurassic Park 3, unlike most people. So there you go.
Movie I Love: This is hard because I love so many movies but I am going with The Wizard of Oz. TNT airs it every year and I watch it every year. And yes, I sing the songs.
Movie I Secretly Love: Alvin and The Chipmunks. Theodore reminds me of my cats and I love my cats so shut up.
Favorite Action Movie: John Wick 1 and 2 (1 is slightly better)
Favorite Drama: Silence of the Lambs
Favorite Horror: The Conjuring
Favorite Comedy: The Heat
Favorite Disney Movie: The Lion King
Favorite Sci-Fi Movie: Stars Wars Trilogy (original, of course)
Favorite Animated Movie: Toy Story 3.
Favorite Superhero Movie: Guardians of the Galaxy
Favorite Musical: Chicago
Favorite Western: Tombstone (I’m your huckleberry). This was also Erin’s choice and I swear I’m not “Single White Female” stalking her.
Favorite Martial Arts: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (When I first typed this I initially put Crouching Tigger – now that I would be an excellent movie!)
Favorite Indie: Grosse Pointe Blank (not sure if this really qualifies but I love this movie!)
Favorite Bad Movie: The Waterboy. Please don’t judge.
Childhood Favorite: The Goonies
Favorite Franchise: Toy Story, Stars Wars (minus the prequels but including The Force Awakens and Rogue One) and Harry Potter. My blog so I can name as many as I want!
Best Trilogy: Toy Story (yes, I like Toy Story)
Guilty Pleasure: Resident Evil (or video game movies in general)
Favorite Director: Christopher Nolan
Favorite Actor: Christian Bale
Favorite Actress: Jessica Chastain
Favorite Foreign Film: Hmmmm … not sure. I don’t watch many (any) foreign films. Something I need to change!
Favorite Movie this Year so Far: Well, John Wick 2, although I expect Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 2 to replace it.
Worst Movie so Far this Year: Warcraft (I watched it this year but it may have come out in 2016). This is a rare video game movie that I don’t love. 🙁
Movie I Have Seen Recently: Lights Out
What I Thought of It: Since I was deeply scared of the dark as a child, this may not have been the wisest movie to watch. But a good horror movie if you’re into those!
Most Anticipated Film of this Year: Guardians of the Galaxy 2 because Baby Groot!
Favorite Movie of All-Time: This is really hard, like picking your favorite cat out of all the cats you’ve ever loved. But my love for Goonies has lasted more than 30 years and I am a Goonie!
I told you mine, now you tell me some of your favorites!
