I figured a change of pace would be a good idea for the blog. Today, I am sharing more about myself through the Movie Tag. This tag is one I have seen on one of my favorite BookTuber people Ginger Reads Lainey. Let me tell you about movies that I adore.
Here are the questions.
Favorite movie of all time?
I like all the movies I own, I suppose. That’s quite a number of films. I guess it depends on my mood. When I am sad, I go for The Perks of Being a Wallflower. When I am trying to pick myself back up from a dark spot, I usually go for It’s Kind of a Funny Story.
Other favorites: The Fault in Our Stars, My Big Fat Greek Wedding (1 and 2), and Coming Through the Rye. What If and Swiss Army Man.
Favorite scene from that movie?
The friendship montage in Swiss Army Man is such a classic in my world. I love it.
Another favorite is the dance sequence from Little Miss Sunshine.
– Favorite actors /actresses?
I find myself gravitating toward characters and less toward actors. Then, the actors I actually do like I tend to like them for their activism and commentary on social situations.
– Most annoying actor/actress?
I literally tried to do research on actors/actresses I may dislike. It’s very rare when I end up disliking an actor. They have a tough job.
– Best director?
Edgar Wright has my favorite style of directing. I only have two of his films, but I enjoy them quite a bit. I like the very meta tone that his films tend to have.
– Favorite guilty pleasure film?
Movies based on books make me smile. So here are some of those films: Vampire Academy, The Mortal Instruments, Everything Everything, The Duff, Beautiful Creatures.
The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films are also dear to me. Harry Potter films are special to me.
Live-Action films: Mirror Mirror, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella
– Favorite tear jerker?
Love, Rosie. Me Before You. The Perks of Being a Wallflower. The Book Thief.
– Character from a movie that scared you the most?
I do not watch scary films. But, I think Voldemort and Bellatrix Lestrange will always be frightening for me. The other terrifying characters I had encountered in films is Gollum. It is the tangible way he is relatable to me; it is scary.
– Movie you love everyone hates?
The Percy Jackson movies, I think. And Spiderwick Chronicles, too, are special. Plus, you can see all the movies based on books are among my favorites. I did notice that not that many people were fond of Paper Towns as a film, which is just wrong.
– Movie you hate everyone loves?
I don’t know if people actually love the Pitch Perfect movies. There are too many of them. I actually did not mind the first one. But, then the jokes got worse in the second one. Eugh.
– Favorite animated movie?
I know I’m being stereotypical but I have always loved Aladdin the most. It was my first film I remember watching in theaters and it was so special.
– Actor/actress crush?
None, I guess.
– Favorite movie villain?
Kylo Ren will always be my favorite. Hands down. Like Gollum, he is so relatable through his conflict within himself.
– What movie surprised you the most?
The Man from U.N.C.L.E was such a pleasant surprise. We ended up spending a whole summer just watching it every day.
– If you could go back in time and marry actor/actress from back when (now old) who would it be?
I think Marilyn Monroe and I could have a good series of discussions on mental illness and body positivity. It could be an open marriage if she wants. I am totally cool with her being with other people.
– What’s the first movie you remember watching in theaters
Aladdin is one of those iconic films that changed everything for me. For a long time, I would play the soundtrack in my head when things were happening in life. It’s hard to explain. But, I lived by that soundtrack.
