Big Movie Survey

weather: sunny
outside: 22°C
mood: okay

Movie you've seen the most times in the theater:

"Star Trek: Generations". 27 times. I volunteered with my Star Trek volunteer group at a local cinema when it opened in 1994. We did ticket-tearing and ushering. And we were allowed to sit in as many non-sold-out showings as we wanted. It was over the Christmas holidays, so the looniest of the group (like me) went to help out almost every evening and weekend we could spare during the weeks that we were scheduled to volunteer =D

A close second is "Star Trek: First Contact". I think I saw this 20-odd times too. We volunteered at this one as well in 1999.

Movie you've seen the most times on video/dvd:

"The Sound of Music". At least once or twice every week from about age 6, well into highschool.

Favorite chick movie:

Keanu Reeves, "A Walk in the Clouds".

Favorite action movie:

Any Jackie Chan movie.

Favorite western:

"Tombstone" comes to mind, but I didn't really like that movie much either.

Favorite movie sex scene:

There was one that wasn't a sex scene, but it had me majorly squidging. I can't remember what movie or what scene now.

Favorite movie to watch when depressed:

Any Mel Brookes movie.

Movie you like that you're embarrassed to admit:

Nothing really comes to mind. Although, I thought the first Pokémon movie wasn't too bad.

Movie you liked that no one else did:

I don't know of any... I liked Star Trek: Insurrection and I know that a lot of people didn't like it, but a fair number liked it too. I really liked it for the cinematography and musical score though, not really for the plot or anything.

Movie you hated that everyone else loved:

  • "Moulin Rouge". Well, I know of one or two other people who didn't like it either.
  • "Hedwig and the Angry Inch"
  • Pink Floyd's "The Wall"
  • "Black Hawk Down" ... well, I didn't really hate it, I think I just didn't like it as much as everyone else seems to.
  • "Austin Powers" 1, 2, 3

Most unmemorable movie:

"Space Jam" with Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny, the half live action, half animated one. It was playing at the same time as Star Trek: First Contact and I tried to take the opportunity to see other movies while I was hanging around on free admission. I fell asleep during the opening credits and woke up during the end credits.

Most juvenile video/dvd you own - and watch:

I don't own any juvenile videos/dvds that I actually watch...

Movie you've never seen that the rest of the world has:

The original Star Wars Trilogy. Everything I know about those three, I learned by Cultural Osmosis.

I have not seen "Army of Darkness" and I have no idea who Bruce Campbell is.

And I still have yet to see the first half (well, second quarter actually) of "Fellowship of the Ring". We were crazy enough to go to the midnight showing on opening night, I was still half sick, so I totally missed the whole Arwen thing. =P

Movie that makes you laugh no matter how many times you see it:

Jackie Chan movies.

Movie that makes you cry no matter how many times you see it:

Movies don't generally make me cry to begin with, even "sad" ones. I know that there were one or two that made me cry the first time around... I'll have to think on this.

I should mention that the 4th Harry Potter book ("The Goblet of Fire") made me cry at the end, so I'll have to wait and see if the movie makes me cry too.

Movie (not cartoon) that always puts you in the holiday spirit:

"A Christmas Carol" starring Alistair Sims and Melvyn Hayes.

Favorite Disney movie (animated or live action):


Movie you can quote the most dialogue from:

"The Sound of Music".

Favorite movie scene you can recite verbatim:

"The Sound of Music".

How about the whole movie? I can recite Ernest Lehman's whole screenplay, verbatim, in its entirety, sing all the songs in the right places and do all the actions. I also recognize a lot of the names in the credits.

Movie you absolutely will not watch:
