Weekend Soiree #10: A game of comment interaction


Let's go catch a film!

The rules are easy. I will ask a question. The first person who comments will answer my question, and will leave a question for the next person to answer. This next person will answer that question, and leave a question for the next next person to answer. I am sure you get it! πŸ˜‰

To make things more fun, the questions have to reflect the chosen theme. For example, if the theme is “WEDDINGS,” all questions should be relate to anything wedding-y. Would you rather get married underwater or on top of Mt. Everest? Is there anyone you wished interrupted your wedding, The Graduate style? As much as possible, let’s not repeat the questions for added fun! You are also welcome to play more than once!

Let’s bring out the popcorn for our tenth weekend soiree!

The theme: MOVIES

My question for Person #1: What was the very first movie you watched in a theater?

    Two recent movies come to mind: The Game Plan and Bahay Kubo. Both talked about family.

    Is popcorn a must have when you watch a movie in the theaters? If not, what is?

    Not necessarily. But I always need to have something to drink.

    Do you read up on the movie before you go watch it at the cinemas?

    Yes! I particularly like to see movies of books I’ve already read. Sometimes I surprise myself when the movie is exactly how I imagined it while reading the book, it’s fun that way.

    What movie have you watched over and over again without getting tired of it? Tell us why.

    There are quite a few that I repeatedly watch.

    My Girl, Little Women, You’ve Got Mail, The Sound of Music… to name a few. Simply because they are my favorite!

    Q: Which movie made a big impact on you? And, why?

  7. MarysMom

    One of the movies that had made an impact on me when I first saw it was “Grand Canyon” – it just got me started thinking about my life at that time, how things happen for a reason and how to just let things BE.

    Question: Who’s your favorite movie character of all time?

    No one in particular but Mr. Bean can really make me laugh!

    If you will be given a chance, who is the actor/actress you would want to be?

    Definitely Cate Blanchett…..she’s gorgeous, talented, clever, a fantastic mum, humble……the list just goes on and on!!!! I’m all for her winning an Oscar this week!

    What is your favourite book that’s been made into a movie?

  10. star
    February 24, 2008 at 2:53 pm (16 years ago)

    Memoirs of a Geisha it is, although I still like the book than the movie (which is most often the case). The book detailed the ways of a geisha in ways the movie did not.

    What line(s) in a movie is/are your most favorite and why?

    In the movie, ‘Once’ (yeah, yeah… I’m still hung up on it and incidentally it won Best Foreign Film in last night’s Spirit Awards), when the guy asked the girl to stay the night, she said, ‘Fuck this. Thanks for the Hoover. I’ll see you around.’

    I love how she said all her disappointment in the guy’s erroneous assumption that he could ask her that when all she was in for was the music he was creating that touched her and caught her so completely. She wasn’t indignant or judgmental or abusive in return. She just matter-of-factly let him know they weren’t on the same page. It’s simple and it’s brilliant.

    My question: Of all the movies recent and past, which one do you feel depicts your life story the most?

  12. marie

    It’s hard to say which movie depicts my life as a whole, but the first thing that came to my mind was…a Tagalog film! Hehe πŸ˜€

    Sana Maulit Muli (I still Loooove Aga!) : I’ve always been in a Long distance relationship. In total for about 10 years of my life. With (Maybe- Haha lost track) about Six guys in my entire life. And then, my now hubby actually followed me in Sydney…. But with Lea’s struggles and all, I could relate like having been alone here 2 years before he followed.

    Which movie confused you, still confuses you to date? Like a movie you can never seem to understand/or get, maybe because it was too scientific, or too out of this world, or simply something too crazy? (Feel free to interpret the Q however way you like)

    I really couldn’t get The Talented Mr. Ripley. Sorry! I wonder if I was too tired to really appreciate the movie as it got a lot of raves. I know it was good but I just couldn’t get it. Hard to explain.

    So have you seen “No Country for Old Men” yet? It won Best Picture at the Academy Awards!

    I saw it on a special engagement, or one week before it’s regular run in the states. NCFOM, like Talented Mr Ripley, are simple movies – although it’s difficult to understand why their villains do what they’re doing.

    Is there a filipino movie included in your 10 greatest films of all time?

    Maynila: Sa Kuko ng Liwanag :) cinematography, wow!

    Question: Have you soooo looked forward to a movie and then only to become disappointed at how it turned out? What movie was this?

  16. bambit
    February 26, 2008 at 7:43 am (16 years ago)

    I was sooo looking forward to I Am Legend because I think Will Smith is a really good actor. But the movie turned out to be a let-down for me, especially after all the hype that came before it was finally shown.

    Question: Have you ever come away from a movie where you liked one character so much you started acting like him/her for real in the next few days?

  17. Cookie
    February 26, 2008 at 3:27 pm (16 years ago)

    Yup. Molly Ringwald in Pretty in Pink. I loved her character so much and in fact, had a Ducky of my own. He was her best guy pal who secretly liked her. Yeah, yeah I had a Ducky but his “crush” wasn’t kept a secret. I also started dressing like her in a kind of cool and quirky way for about a year which really pissed my parents off :)

    Question : How do you deal with moviegoers who are noisy and irritating? Do you shush them or do you just try to ignore them?

  18. kreez
    February 26, 2008 at 10:37 pm (16 years ago)

    if in case i encounter obnoxious movie goers, I don’t shush them coz I’ve experienced that if one person shush a noisy group (which is more commonly a group of rowdy teenagers) another group shushes back and creates more distraction, but if I am close to the noisy group, I would whisper to them to take it down a notch.

    My question: Have you ever been so bored in a movie that you ended up walking out on it? if so what is that movie?

  19. Toni
    February 27, 2008 at 6:44 pm (16 years ago)

    Yes! The Medallion. I think that starred Jackie Chan and Claire Forlani. Walked out on it. I also walked out on Bounce (Ben Affleck, Gwyneth) and Starsky & Hutch. Was so bored!

    Have you ever taken a call inside a movie house?

  20. misty
    February 28, 2008 at 4:30 pm (16 years ago)

    nope, it’s always in silent mode inside the movie house. first, because it’s embarrassing to be shushed. second, i’d like to hear the movie, thank you.

    what’s the movie you were sure you’d hate but watched anyway? did you change your mind after?

  21. maggie

    I forgot the title but it featured the loveteam of angelu and bobby andrews, hehe. College days, a friend persuaded me to watch with her, I have some extra money, so off I go and I hated it more.

    Q: Do you watch indie films?

  22. Toni
    May 12, 2008 at 9:08 am (16 years ago)

    Yep! As much as I can.

    Have you seen Iron Man yet?
