I Got Tagged!

Taking a break from my normal discussions of lists and reviews, My Floating Red Couch has brought me into this mystical game of Movie Bloggers sharing their insights about themselves, and I feel the need to oblige. The harder part for me will be figuring out who I should "tag," but we'll worry about that later. We'll keep it short and sweet so that you can all get out on time. 

Top Ten Movie Facts About Myself:

1. The first movie I ever saw in the theatre sans my parents was Babe 2: Pig in the City. I was eight and thought it was the coolest thing ever that my friend and I got to go in without an adult. 

2. I didn't see Gone With the Wind until this year (sad, I know, but totally worth the wait). 

3. I'm not one for buying food at the movie theatre unless it's like five people sharing one thing of popcorn. As a result, my friends and I have smuggled everything from gourmet salads to root beer floats into the theatre without ever getting caught. 

4. I'm still bitter about Judi Dench winning Best Supporting Actress for Shakespeare in Love (even though it was over ten years ago), and will be for a long time. 

5. I cried for over an hour when Christopher Reeve died.

6. My favorite child actor is Justin Henry in Kramer vs. Kramer. A close second would be Anna Paquin in The Piano

7. I'll admit to taking part in a Disney movie marathon... over the age of eighteen. 

8. Movies I have memorized all the way through (and can literally recite from opening statement to end): Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Ever After (although I haven't tried to recite this one in a while so I don't know well it would turn out).

9. The first horror movie I saw was the Shining. I honestly don't know how I made it through when I was eight without getting serious nightmares, since it wasn't until high school that I stopped finding horror movies scary. Although, I did see Darkness Falls in middle school and didn't find the tooth fairy scary in the slightest. 

10. The most recent movie I've watched all the way through is The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. And yes, you should expect a post soon. 

Questions? Comments? Concerns? Okay!

Let's hope they don't all hate me.


The Movie Mistress


  1. Shoot - I still haven't seen GWTW...and I can't say that I plan to anytime soon.

    I always, always, always get food at the theater. The popcorn is almost reason enough to go (it helps that I love the popcorn made by my local chain).

    I actually got tagged already, but I thank you for your tag and will cite you as well.

  2. #9 randomly generated 30 Days of Night in my head, you seen it? Totally freeking skary

  3. Haha weird, Men in Tights is one of the few movies I know every line to as well! I went through a phase when I was like 13 or 14 when that was the main movie I ever wanted to watch, and it's just stuck with me since. Also I'm very impressed with your food smuggling abilities!

    And thanks so much for the tag, but I already did it a few days ago!

  4. I love Babe 2, and AWESOME that you finally saw Gone With The Wind. Great movie.

    I'm with you on Men In Tights. Achoo! Bless you!

    One of the few film parodies I love.

  5. You saw "The Shining" when you were that young? How did you not incur severe emotional damage that required years of therapy to repair?

    The truth? I didn't see "Gone with the Wind" for the first time until last year.

  6. Actually, I haven't seen Gone with the Wind until a year ago too! And yes, I never buy food from the concession stand since I hate to pay $6 for a coke, smuggling all the way!

  7. Great article man, keep on going brother.
