First film you can remember seeing?
Beauty and the Beast.

Last film you saw that you loved?

First film you saw on a date?
Shrek. We went to the cinema at random and that was the most promising offering. Our next cinema trip was less successful. We were supposed to be seeing The Others but it was sold out and my then other half point blank refused to watch whichever Harry Potter was screening at the time. We ended up watching Legally Blonde, which I enjoyed more than I thought I would and he utterly detested.

First film you can remember that you disagreed strongly with the critics/reviews about?
I don't know. There are a lot of reviews I read and never see the films for.

What film have you dreamed about?
Star Wars. But I don't remember what happened.

A secret thing you did in a darkened theatre:
Why waste money on paying to watch a film and then make out? Surely you could just do that at home with the lights off? Or you know, in the garden shed or something?

Ever lied about something so you could see a film?
Nope. I don't like lying.

The worst film you ever saw and the best thing about it:
Dude Where's My Car? and the part where I got to leave the cinema.

One person you’ve never seen a film with but would like to sometime:
[ profile] wyrdpixie

What kind of film you’d like to see with that person:
Doesn't matter :)

A film you’re embarrassed to admit you enjoyed:
There aren't any. Actually I take that back, X-Men 3. I enjoyed it, despite realising it was a train wreck of plotting, characterisation and logic. There were explosions and Hugh Jackman got his top off. But I probably enjoyed being angry about it, more than I enjoyed the chest on display.

Your favorite film and the worst thing about it:
I'm really not sure what my favourite film is. There are so many I love.

To understand something about you, people need to see this film:
Watch Labyrinth and appreciate David Bowie's eyebrows. That is where my love stems from. I swear. It's NOT the crotch, people, NOT THE CROTCH! Everyone insists it must be, but it's the eyebrows and that scene where he's wearing the blue crushed velvet jacket and has a sparkly face... ::melts::

A film you haven’t seen yet but you really want to?
Sex and Drugs and Rock n Roll, The Men Who Stare At Goats, A Single Man.

A film character you could really relate to, or even wish you could be like?
That's difficult, because there are certain aspects of characters I could definitely relate to or say I had in common with them, but that wouldn't make me that character. One of my exes called me Kiddo for a while, in reference to Kill Bill and the fact I do martial arts and I liked it as a nickname because what I liked most about Kill Bill was all the kick-ass female fighters in it, but I'm not about to go on a killing spree and probably never would. I can relate to Cady Herron in Mean Girls when she completely doesn't understand the girl world rules. I would like to be Mystique in X-Men, though less evil. I can relate to Tim Messenger in Hot Fuzz though I spell better than him and don't want to be decapitated by a falling church spire. In terms of personality, I'm probably most like Kat Stratford in 10 Things I Hate About You. In fact, she's probably the closest to me I've ever seen in any film. Though I have yet to flash my tits at a teacher.

If you were a film, what genre would you be filed under at the video store?
The incredibly niche genre of fantasy female gangster flicks where the heroine strides about in flat shoes, preferably boots, wearing a battered black leather trench coat, generally kicking ass, fighting crime, drinking amaretto and lemonade, delivering snappy one-liners and riding a flying motorbike by night. By day, she is a respected concert clarinettist, with a happily dysfunctional family, who live in a converted chapel with its own dojo in the extension. No, this is not a screenplay I'm working on, but perhaps it should be.
