Movie meme

...from madame_urushiol:

1. Name a movie that you have seen more than 10 times.
Pride & Prejudice, the 2005 one with Keira Knightley. It got me through a rough patch a little more than a year ago.

2. Name a movie that you've seen multiple times in the theater.
See above, and Gosford Park.

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

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

5. Name a movie that you can quote from.
Monty Python's Search for the Holy Grail.

6. Name a movie musical that you know all the lyrics to all the songs.
Oklahoma, because I worked on my high school's production of it. I've never actually seen the movie. I know a lot of the songs for The Phantom of the Opera because of friends who have been obsessed with it, but I do my best to forget about that.

7. Name a movie that you have been known to sing along with.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show, back in the day.

8. Name a movie that you would recommend everyone see.
Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb has something for everyone.

9. Name a movie that you own.
The Lady Vanishes, classic Hitchcock from 1938.

10. Name an actor that launched his/her entertainment career in another medium but who has surprised you with his/her acting chops.
Tupac Shakur wasn't bad at all in Gridlock'd.

11. Have you ever seen a movie in a drive-in? If so, what?
Sadly, no.

12. Ever made out in a movie?
Yes. True Stories, for one.

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

14. Ever walked out of a movie?
To Wong Foo Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar was just wretched and an insult to the original, Priscilla Queen of the Desert. I saw both of those with the same people, and we all agreed we had to walk out of To Wong Foo. Signs & Wonders had a promising cast (Stellan Skarsgård and Charlotte Rampling), but I didn't last ten minutes before walking out. It was just too ridiculous. The usher-lady couldn't believe we were leaving. Oh yes and then there was the hilarious Brazilian historical gay porn flick my friend Sophie and I started watching as part of a Brazilian art exhibit at the Guggenheim—we walked out after maybe ten minutes. Brazilians can be so childish about sex.

15. Name a movie that made you cry in the theater.
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.

16. Popcorn?

17. How often do you go to the movies (as opposed to renting them or watching them at home)?
I still probably watch more movies in the theatre, due to technology limitations at home.

18. What's the last movie you saw in the theater?
The Lives of Others.

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

20. What's the first movie you remember seeing in the theater?
Probably some animated Disney movie—let's say Sleeping Beauty or maybe Pinocchio.

21. What movie do you wish you had never seen?
Basic Instinct was quite a waste of time.

22. What is the weirdest movie you enjoyed?
Naked Lunch was pretty weird, and I enjoyed that. Spirit of the Beehive isn't exactly conventional either, and it's one of my all-time favorites.

23. What is the scariest movie you've seen?
For some reason The Blair Witch Project scared me a lot. Also some horror flick I watched at a slumber party as a kid, that I don't remember the name of. It had a ridiculous plot involving an old portrait, a computer, and some pigs, but somehow it scared the &#@! out of me.

24. What is the funniest movie you've seen?
Raising Arizona.
