Finally! A Post! It's A Meme Unfortunately...

I was forc- I mean asked to do this meme. I delightfully obliged because of two valid and convincing reasons. One, my blog is about to die and I need to resuscitate it. And two, it's about movies! It's gonna be fun. So my answers here are off the top of my head and I wrote the first thing that came to mind.

1) One movie that made you laugh

"Kung Pow: Enter the Fist" - as crazy, stupid and retarded the movie may seem, this movie made my jaw, ribcage and stomach hurt!

note: "Dracula: Dead and Loving It" came a close second

2) One movie that made you cry

NONE. Call me cold-hearted or just plain mean but no movie has ever had the honor of making me cry. Not "Life is Beautiful," not "Titanic," not "Anak," no matter how heart breaking the movie got, I have yet to shed a single tear.

note: There is one movie that I remember recently that ALMOST got me misty-eyed. "The Pursuit of Happyness" (the bathroom scene)

3) One movie you loved when you were a child

We basically grew up with Disney and Aladdin was a favorite. However, I remember vividly my love and fascination for the movie Nightmare before Christmas.

4) One movie you've seen more than once

Currently, it's "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street"

5) One movie you loved, but embarrassed to admit it.

"The Brady Bunch Movie." Also, "The Master of Disguise"

note: may I be forgiven for my lack of sanity.

6) One movie you hated

Epic Movie, Date Movie and Meet The Spartans - what disappointing parodies!

note: "Son of the Mask" was gawd awful too!

7) One movie that scared you

As an adult, The Eye kinda scared me. As a kid however, Nightmare on Elm Street scared the crap out of me. I was so afraid to go to sleep, it wasn't funny.

8) One movie that bored you

"The Hours" - to quote Liz Lemon of 30 Rock, "The Hours?! They should've called it The Weeks!"

9) One movie that made you happy

"Grindhouse" - technically, that's two movies, but they both were awesome wicked cool!

10) One movie that made you miserable

"Queen of the Damned" - I like the movie, don't get me wrong. The fact that it was based from an Anne Rice novel means I'll most likely like it. It's just that it didn't live up to the novel and its full movie potential. It could've been better, alot better. And I hated knowing that.

11) One movie you weren't brave enough to see

High School Musical

note: . . . . . . .

12) One movie character you've fallen in love with

Akasha, from "Queen of the Damned"

note: Also probably any role Mila Jovovich has portrayed.

13) The last movie you saw

On the silver screen: Speed Racer - It left a bad taste in my mouth

On TV: Superstar - on HBO

14) The next movie you hope to see

Either "Narnia: Prince Caspian" or "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull"


There! That wasn't THAT painful, was it? And you got to learn a little bit more about me. Do this meme if you have the same reasons as I do. Tell me about it so I can know a bit about you too.

I recall answering a meme similar to this at my blog-gone-rogue and I was thinking of tagging you back then but you were AWOL at that time. So, um, yeah.

We've got the same reply to numero dos. XD

I heart The Brady Bunch Movie, and I'm not even the least bit embarrassed to admit it. LOL.

Yeah, Grindhouse just kicked royal ass. That tandem of Rodriguez/Tarantino is the shit y'all.

Oh, The Queen of the Damned. I hated everything about it (well, except Aaliyah since I was still mourning her untimely demise then T__T). The fact that both The Vampire Lestat and The Queen of the Damned books were squeezed into one movie was grounds for said reaction. Sayang talaga! Tsk tsk.

The Brady Bunch Movie? As in yung nasa resort (?) sila or yung parang 'behing-the-scenes' movie? XD May isang movie sabi daw yung actor and actress na nag-portray kina Marcia and Greg naging item. XD Hahaha, todo chismis, amp. XD

My oh my. One of the few humble people on earth. Haha. Thanks for the visit, and thanks for the compliment as well. I am a photo enthusiast at first, just like you. Eventually your skills in photography will be hasten, that we'll be even.

Seems like you don't update frequently, exactly the same as me haha. Anyway, have a great day.

I enjoyed reading this meme! And I even feel like doing it. Are you willing to tag me? :P

The Eye freaked the hell out of me!

Jigs said...

@Talamasca: You know, I glad we got similar movie tastes! And I always thought I had the weirdest taste in music. Haha!

@Paolo: Lolz!

@Redg: in the movie, they did go to some resort. I don't remember much about it anymore.

@lad: Thanks for the visit and the nice comment!

@Juice: Anything on your birthday. Hehe! Consider yourself tagged!

I didn't like Speed Racer as well. And like you, I can't bring myself to watch High School Music.
