GIP (and 5 films meme)
I made an icon for Sunnydale Passions. Go me!

I was tagged by spikewriter for the 5 films meme. There are two versions floating around, this is the one she did.

1. Total number of films I own on DVD/video:
Approximately 300. although many were taped off the TV.

2. The last film I bought:
‘Brotherhood of the Wolf’ is, I think, the last one that I’ve bought for myself. However curiouswombat bought me ‘Hero’ as an anniversary present much more recently.

3. The last film I watched:
‘Brotherhood of the Wolf’. After having owned it for months without watching it I checked up on what films were showing in the USA at the time that ‘Angel of the Morning’ is set, found that it was on, and decided to have Spike and Willow go to see it. I watched it as research – and was extremely impressed. The most recent one that I’ve seen at the cinema (movie theatre) was ‘Alien vs. Predator’. The special effects were good; shame about everything else.
Watching ‘Hero’ is a priority for my next nights off work; I've had it since April 26 and still haven't had a chance to watch it.

4. Five films that I watch a lot:
I don’t really watch any films over and over again. Months, even years, can go by without me rewatching even my favourites. These are perhaps the ones I watch most often.
Leon (The Professional). The Princess Bride. The 300 Spartans. Predator 2. The New One-Armed Swordsman.

5. Tag 5 people and have them put this in their journal:
I’ve lost track of who has done this already, so sorry if you’ve already been tagged.

I don't know, but I felt honoured when spikewriter tagged me.

Funny how natural Angel looks in the million years BC get up on your icon *g* "Ugh, Me Angel, have sole, need egg."

Oh, heck...

It wasn't so bad, was it? I see you've managed to do it.

No - it wasn't. Just made me realise how infrequently I go to the cinema since the kids came along (unless it's to take them)- it used to be a regular thing. And also that I very, very rarely get or make time to sit down and actually watch a film at home. I think I should start - all this running from one job to the next can't be to the good.

Hee! Who'd have thought a simple meme would set you off thinking about your life...

Hey you say "at the cinema" too!!!

LOL

Nathalie Portman will always be the little girl in "Leon" for me...

You mean she's been in something else?

Although I did hear that Leon's plant went on to play a role in some sci-fi prequel or other ...

Hee! to the icon. Princess Bride keeps popping up on lists, for good reason.
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: May 15th, 2005 08:46 am (UTC) (Link)
But of course! Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles...

Hey, Princess Bride is one of very few films that I've watched repeatedly, too! In fact I watched it just this Friday night!

It seems to crop up more often in this meme than any other film, and quite rightly so.

This has all brought home to me that I am entirely culturally retarded. But at least I don't like Ghost. :)
