Movie Meme

April 28, 2007 Categories: Memes & Quizzes , Movies | 12 Comments  

I saw this at The Bayer Family Blog and I think it makes a good post on a Saturday when I’m too tired to have anything more important to say:

1. Name a movie that you have seen more than 10 times. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

2. Name a movie that you’ve seen multiple times in the theater. Top Gun

3. Name an actor who would make you more inclined to see a movie. Hugh Jackman, Clive Owen, Matthew McConaughey, Hugh Grant

4. Name an actor who would make you less likely to see a movie. Will Farrell (in a comedy – I liked him in Stranger Than Fiction)

5. Name a movie that you can quote from. Sleepless in Seattle

6. Name a movie musical that you know all the lyrics to all the songs. Singing in the Rain

7. Name a movie that you have been known to sing along with. Any musical or any movie that has a song I know on the soundtrack. It drives my kids crazy.

8. Name a movie that you would recommend everyone see. Cinderella Man

9. Name a movie that you own. Much Ado About Nothing

10. Name an actor who launched his/her entertainment career in another medium but who has surprised you with his/her acting chops. I’ll go with Kev’s answer – Will Smith.

11. Have you ever seen a movie in a drive-in? Lots of times. Our small, boonie-ville town actually has one!

12. Ever made out in a movie? No. But I’ve made out on the couch while watching a movie. Does that count?

13. Name a movie that you keep meaning to see but just haven’t gotten around to it. The Passion of the Christ

14. Ever walked out of a movie? Two that I can remember: Born on the 4th of July and some movie starring Brian Bosworth. My boyfriend at the time wanted to see it, but fifteen minutes in we looked at each other and said, “Let’s get out of here!”

15. Name a movie that made you cry in the theater. Lots, but I particularly remember Schindler’s List. I went by myself and I was wearing contacts – I cried so hard that my contacts were covered with mascara and it took me forever to get them clear enough to see to drive home.

16. Popcorn? Always!

17. How often do you go to the movies (as opposed to renting them or watching them at home)? Once a month. I have a wonderful husband who would rather watch movies at home on DVD and will let me go to the movies with a friend or my parents – or sometimes even by myself!

18. What’s the last movie you saw in the theater? Wild Hogs

19. What’s your favorite/preferred genre of movie? I like almost everything except horror, so that’s a hard one. Drama, comedy, sci-fi, thriller – see what I mean?

20. What’s the first movie you remember seeing in the theater? The Empire Strikes Back

21. What movie do you wish you had never seen? Carrie

22. What is the weirdest movie you enjoyed? Hudson Hawk

23. What is the scariest movie you’ve seen? Carrie

24. What is the funniest movie you’ve seen? Hmmm – lots of funny movies. Recently, Wild Hogs and Music and Lyrics. I do remember laughing so hard I snorted during a showing of Wayne’s World.

What about you? Favorite film of all time? Movie you hated that everyone else loves?


  1. Jennifer, Snapshot

    Ooh–fun list. Your Cinderella Man recommendations is hard for me to take, because even though I have enjoyed some of Russell Crowe’s work (A Beautiful Mind was great), he and Renee Zellwegger sort of seem self-important and bug me, so I’ve really avoided it.

    I also liked Stranger than Fiction, but enjoy Will F.’s sillier work as well.

  2. carrie

    Jennifer – Cinderella Man is really a fantastic movie. I’m not a huge Zelwegger fan, but I thought she was very good in this and the story is so wonderful.

  3. Michelle

    I agree, I’m not a Will Ferrell fan though I liked Stranger than Fiction.

  4. The Woman

    A meme I’ve not seen! Hmm…

    Enjoyed reading your choices!

    Horror movies are definitely not my thing. One of the worst I’ve seen? Remember It’s Alive? Shudder.

  5. carrie

    Michelle – wasn’t Emma Thompson brilliant in that, as well? She played “complete-mess-writer’s-block” as if it came natural. Of couse, she does write – so who knows?

  6. carrie

    The Woman – me, too – I saw quite a few in high school and college, and they still creep me out!

  7. Atypical » Movie meme

    [...] I saw this at Carrie’s and I either have allergies kicking up or am getting a cold so this is going to be it for tonight: [...]

  8. Kev

    *gasp* You enjoyed Hudson Hawk?!

    I’ve only ever met one other person who actually enjoyed that movie (besides me), and that was my best friend at the time who I went to see it with!!

  9. carrie

    Kev – I was on a date with a guy from work (this was long before I met my Kevin) and there was only one other couple in the whole theater. I think they left before it was over. I think my date wanted to – I kept snorting with laughter and he kept rolling his eyes. That fact – and our pre-movie destination (the gun shop) – kind of guaranteed there wasn’t a 2nd date!

  10. Ron

    For your #10, mine would be Napolean Dynamite. Somone in our household owns one. I’ve seen parts of it and it reminds me of my own school years. I think the movie also bothers me in that takes something that is very real and tragic for many children and makes it seem funny.

  11. Ron

    The above was for your last question. I don’t know where the #10 came from.

  12. carrie

    Ron – I’m so glad I wasn’t the only one who hated that movie! Kevin and I watched it after so many people raved over it, and we kept watching cause we thought it just had to get better. But it didn’t, IMO. The actor is talented, though, and was very funny in A School for Scoundrels with Billy Bob Thornton.
