So there has been this big bunch of tagging going around for this Top Ten Movie Facts thingy, and I have been tagged once (thank you Aiden). If you ever wanted to know anything I haven’t already told you guys about my secret movie life, so well, here goes nothing.
I actually consider (500) Days of Summer to be the best film of the decade, and call bull crap on the Oscars for not even nominating this beautiful piece of work for one Oscar. Then they wonder why people don’t watch them anymore.
I’m 17 years old, and the first R-rated movie I was able to get into without showing any I.D whatsoever, was Bruno, and because it was in the summer and I let my beard grow out, and I literally looked like a 30 year old man. Here’s some proof:
That’s me on the left. Either 17 or 30 upon first viewing?? You be the judge
I have actually met Woody Harrelson in my life, the sad thing was I was 8 at the time, and my parents got the picture with him. Yes, I have been up countless nights, over the day that could have been the greatest day ever! Oh and apparently he was stoned when we met him. No shocker there!
I have a real, passionate hatred for Richard Gere. He just always struck me as this dude that thought he was such a charmer that he does these roles that are so annoying and gay, he will never be allowed back in the Man-Law. Hell, I don’t even blame Diane Lane for leaving him in Unfaithful, I would have done the same thing if I was married, and had one kid with this dude.
The one movie I actually peed myself laughing so hard at was the movie, White Chicks. Everyone, I know the movie kind of blew, but that one part, yeah, you know that one part. I just couldn’t stop laughing at, and well you know the expression, “when you gotta go, you gotta go”. Terry Crews = The Effin Man!!
People actually wonder where I watch all my movies, and I don’t have a huge collection of movies, really, nor do I barely go out to the movies. I watch all my movies either instantly on Netflix (great stuff), Youtube (just type in a movie + part 1), and then some other sites, that I’m told not to mention. Yeah, I’m just that bad-ass!
I honestly don’t get that scared easily by horror movies, but the real first movie that terrified me then, and still does is 28 Days Later. I consider it one of the best horror movies of all-time, and whenever it’s on, I cannot look away, even though I never go to sleep that night. Here’s to many sleepless nights Danny Boyle!
I’am actually one of the very few people that enjoyed every single Star Wars film, from Episode I to Episode VI. The III will always be my favorite of the “new” trilogy, but when people are smack-talking on the them, I’am easily offended, and will fight to the death for them. I got yo back George, you my boy!
I’am not a little bitch when it comes to watching movies and dropping a little tear, but I have only done that on-occasion for some movies: American History X (that ending gets me almost every time), Up (you weren’t human unless you cried at that film), and last but not least, the most guilty of all guilty pleasures, Hardball. I know its random and stupid, but don’t tell me that at least once you didn’t cry at that G-Baby scene. Keanu Reeves, I don’t care what they say about you, you will always have a special place in my heart.
The one film that will always stand the test of time for me, Saving Private Ryan. Whenever it’s on, I stop right what I’m doing, and watch the whole thing from wherever it has just begun. What is so great about this film that it actually had such an impact on me? Well, it was one of the first movies I actually watched, focused on story, characters, acting, themes, setting, direction, everything. It was one of the first movies that I realized utter beauty that could be shown in cinema, and it is one of the first movies to actually influence me into reviewing movies for what they are.
So, there, we have it everyone! Those are my 10 facts about my life when it comes to movies, that I surprisingly took a long time to think about. I hope all of you found this amusing as much as I did righting back to all the memories, good and bad, and adding slight touches of humor too my life of films.
Oh, and here’s some people that I must tag to do this ish as well.
