Friday Five

1. What's your favorite line from a movie, and why?
I don't have a favorite line, but I do have two favorite monologues.
#1 Mikey in Goonies: "Don't you realize? The next time you see sky, it'll be over another town. The next time you take a test, it'll be in some other school. Our parents, they want the best of stuff for us. But right now, they got to do what's right for them. Because it's their time. Their time! Up there! Down here, it's our time. It's our time down here."
#2 Bluto in Animal House: "Over? Did you say 'over'? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!"

Both inspiring stuff.

2. Who's your favorite villain from a movie, and why?
Davie Bowie in Labyrinth. Um, because he's AWESOME.

3. Name one movie everyone else loves that you hate.
The Big Lebowski. Sorry, everyone, I just didn't get it. I honestly think that most people who claim to like it are just pretending because they think it's supposed to be cool.

4. Name one movie everyone else hates that you love. This movie got bad reviews but I liked it. I can't really think of anything else right now.

5. What's your favorite Pixar film, and why?
Finding Nemo. Because of the cute fishies.

I wanna play too!
1) Any line from Reality Bites... literally I like them all as my favorite. "Get a Ford" "Because I'm not retarded mom!" "Melrose place is a really good show." All classics.
2) Alan Cummings in Circle of Friends. He was just so slimy in that movie. I loved it.
3) Gladiator. It was just too gory. I think I fell asleep watching it. I'm also not that into Russel Crowe.
4) Moulin Rouge. I realize that not everyone hates it but there's a lot that do. I LOVE it.
5) Finding Nemo is the cutest thing ever.

I love lebowski, I think you just need to watch it 121 more times, deal?

My turn, but I only want to answer #3.

3. Name one movie everyone else loves that you hate.
First, I totally agree with Eileen. The Big Lebowski is a total waste except for John Turturro. The other movie that just killed me was The Aristocrats. It seems like every critic LOVED this movie and I swear it was the most painful viewing experience of my life. In fact, I had to watch it in 20 minute sections so I had time to recover. I should have quit after the first 20, but I was fooled into thinking it had to get better.

How could anyone like that rubbish??

Adam, finally, I am not alone! And I will not see the Aristocrats based on your anti-recommendation.
