I decided to do another tag because I think they’re fun and I chose this one specifically because I love movies. So here goes nothing!
1. Favourite movie of all time?
Great, I’m stuck on the first question. It used to be ‘Orphan’ as my top answer but now I’d say ‘Room’ because I just love everything about that film.
2. Favourite scene from that movie?
When Jack manages to help the police find ‘room’ and they rescue Ma and she reunites with Jack. Makes me weep buckets every time I watch that scene.
3. Favourite actors/actresses?
Oh here we go. I never used to get the hype over actors and actresses like musicians I understood but I never found myself getting hyped over actors and actresses. Things have definitely changed.
Actors – Chris Pine, Sebastian Stan, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Dong-yeon Kwak, Tom Hiddleston, Will Poulter, James Corden, Daniel Radcliffe, Zac Efron and Leonardo DiCaprio
Actresses – Isabelle Fuhrman, Brie Larson, Chloe Grace Moretz, Angelina Jolie, Kathryn Newton, Park Eun-bin, Kristen Stewart, Helena Bonham Carter, Emily Blunt, Melissa McCarthy, Zendaya and Emma Watson
I’m sure I’ve missed tons that I love and I’ll kick myself later but there you go.
4. Most annoying actor/actress?
At one point I’d have said Owen Wilson ‘cos a lot of his films annoy me but he actually impressed me with his performance in ‘No Escape’ so I take it back. I used to love Johnny Depp but I can’t support him anymore, not after what he did. Same with Emma Roberts, I was a big fan of her but now I won’t support her anymore. Bella Thorne’s annoying too which is a shame ‘cos I loved her in ‘Shake It Up’ but there you go.
5. Best director?
Obvious one but Tim Burton. Or Hayao Miyazaki.
6. Favourite guilty pleasure film?
Mine’s probably ‘Annie’. I don’t care what anyone says, that film is amazing!
7. Favourite tear jerker?
I would’ve said ‘Room’ but I already picked that as my favourite so I’ll say ‘My Sister’s Keeper’. That film makes me weep buckets if I watch it alone. Oh my God or ‘Bridge to Terabithia’, I switch it off now when Lesley and Jesse say goodbye to each other for the last time and pretend the ending’s not real.
8. Character from a movie that scared you the most?
I was trying to think of a childhood film character that scared me but couldn’t get one so I’ll have to settle on The Babadook from ‘The Babadook’. I absolutely love horror movies but that is the one horror I refuse to watch on my own.
9. Movie you love everyone hates?
I feel like I’m quite easily impressed by any movie to be honest. I loved the Ghostbusters remake with the all-female cast but then I never watched the original so I can’t compare.
10. Move you hate everyone loves?
I could’ve said ‘Twilight’ but I feel like most people hate that film now. I can’t even say ‘Star Wars’ because I don’t really hate it because I can’t, I’ve never seen it. I’m not sure if it counts as an example but everyone hyped up ‘The Exorcism of Emily Rose’ and when I finally saw it I was extremely disappointed – not scary at all, just boring from start to finish.
11. Favourite movie duo?
I actually liked Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum in ’21 Jump Street’ a lot more than I thought I would. I watched the sequel at university with an American girl named Sydney and enjoyed that too. They’re not really my type of movie but I enjoyed them and thought Jonah and Channing were hilarious.
12. Favourite animated movie?
I have a ton of different ones! To name a few I loved My Neighbour Totoro, Rugrats in Paris, Monsters Inc and Home.
13. Actor/Actress crush?
Oh God, um, at the moment my top actor crush is probably Thomas Brodie-Sangster and my top actress crush is Zendaya.
14. Favourite movie villain?
I’m gonna be really cliché and say Loki. Before Ragnarok I wouldn’t have said him though ‘cos I didn’t really like the first film and although I was hyped during the second I didn’t really care about it that much afterwards. I did love the first Avengers though and after watching Ragnarok I’m quite hyped about Thor again.
15. What movie surprised you the most?
Probably ‘Into the Woods’. To be honest I only saw it because Chris Pine was in it and I normally hate musicals where there’s it’s almost completely all singing. But I loved it, I went back to the cinema to see it about 6 times.
16. If you could only keep one movie what would it be?
Probably ‘Hairspray’ at the moment, I rewatched it a couple of weeks ago and got completely sucked into the story. I feel like I could watch that a lot of times without getting bored.
17. Movie recommendation and for whom?
Right I’m gonna attempt to hit my friends with some film recs which will be difficult as I’ve either A. Seen the film with them or B. Don’t know what they’ve seen so here goes nothing.
Hirst – ‘The Greatest Showman’ because she’d absolutely love it.
Jess – ‘A Tale of Two Sisters’ because she’s got my DVD of it and I wanna talk to someone about it.
Becca – Becca’s the most difficult for God’s sakes. I’m gonna rec ‘Black Panther’ ‘cos I still don’t think she’s seen it yet and I bet she’d like it.
18. If you could go back in time and marry actor/actress from back when (now old) who would it be?
The only crushes who are now old that I can think of were child-actors at the time so um that would not be appropriate haha! Maybe Leonardo DiCaprio – not that he’s old! I’m just thinking like Titanic or Romeo and Juliet Leo.
19. One remake you wish had never been made?
Wow, not sure I have one because I haven’t really seen an awful lot of classic films and I don’t really mind remakes. Like I love the original Annie but it didn’t stop me from enjoying the remake because it was just different, I don’t see them as the same thing I just judge them as two different movies. Saying that I’m not sure I’d be happy if they remade the Harry Potter series which I bet they will do one day. Like it would be interesting to see if they added things that the original movies missed but I love my original cast and wouldn’t want them to change.
20. About to die but could only watch one more movie what would it be?
My original answer was ‘Bugsy Malone’ because I’d been wanting to re-watch it for a while but I finally did on Friday so now I wouldn’t choose that one. I think I’d pick ‘The Greatest Showman’ because I’ve only seen it once and I did absolutely love it.
21. Favourite movie genre/favourite movie from that genre?
Horror and probably ‘Orphan’. I just love a good plot twist and this was the first one that hit me at full force.
22. What’s the first movie you remember watching in theatres?
I remember being in the cinema as a kid but I can’t remember what I was watching, I do remember going to see Ice Age though. I actually took my nephew Tyler to his first cinema experience, we watched ‘Kubo and the Two Strings’.
So there we go, that was the Movie Tag! If you decide to do this tag leave me a comment ‘cos I’d love to read your answers!
