9. Name a movie that you own.
Any movie previously mentioned and available on dvd . . . plus a myriad of chick flicks, most Harrison Ford movies (Indiana Jones, Jack Ryan, Star Wars, etc.), King Kong, the library of Pixar & Disney, some Stephen King, some John Grisham, some M. Night Shyamalan, some Coen Brothers, some Alfred Hitchcock, and pretty much any disaster movie threatening the end of the world as we know it. Oh, and about 10 dozen others.

Will Smith. No contest.

11. Name a movie that you keep meaning to see but just haven’t yet gotten around to.
Schindler's List.

12. Ever walked out of a movie?
So far, all of them.


13. Name a movie that made you cry in the theater.
See #12.

14. Popcorn?
Rarely. I LOVE it, but I can't justify paying $6 for something I can pop at home for 75c. And, NO butter.


15. How often do you go to the movies?
Average: once every 6 weeks.


16. What’s the last movie you saw in the theater?
True Grit. Love those Coen Boys.


17. What’s your favorite/preferred genre of movie?
I gave this a bit of thought. I don't think I have one. A good movie is a good movie. For me, it MUST have, and I cannot emphasize the importance of this enough, it MUST have great dialogue.


18. What’s the first movie you remember seeing in the theater?
The Jungle Book, though it was actually at the drive-in

19. What movie do you wish you had never seen?
Hmmmm . . . if I had to pick just one movie, I would say, "The Hours." I wish I had "the hours" back that I spent watching it. Dreadful.

20. What is the weirdest movie you enjoyed?
I tried to enjoy "Inglorious Basterds", I really did. I wanted to. But I just couldn't make it past the gore to appreciate the humor. So . . . weirdest movie I've enjoyed? Fargo. Or Supergator. They're both so similar . . . :)


21. What is the scariest movie you’ve seen?
The Shining. Silence of the Lambs. The Ring. None so scary now.

22. What is the funniest movie you’ve seen?
I rarely like comedies that are JUST comedies . . . i.e., most anything starring a Saturday Night Live alum. I like movies with action or a story that also happen to BE funny. BUT, for strictly giggles, the movie that makes me laugh hysterically no matter how many times I see it . . . Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Hands down.

23. Great books that were also great movies?
For me . . . Hamlet, Little Women, and several John Grisham's.

24. Great books that were not-so-great movies?
Most of the movies based on Stephen King stories seriously do NOT do him justice. (There are a FEW exceptions.)

The biggest exception on #24 - Shawshank. What a great story.
