Fun Friday–A Movie Meme

Friday, June 1, 2007

fun-friday.jpg

Does it seem like my Fun Friday topics have leaned toward movies a lot recently? Well, that’s probably because after writing, watching movies is one of my favorite things to do.

A couple of days ago, I filled out a meme on Erica‘s blog–it was all about reading: what’s on the TBR pile, what we’ve read recently, what we’ve borrowed, etc. So, I thought I would adjust it for my other favorite pasttime. Feel free to use this on your blog, just be sure to leave me a comment with a link. Or, just post your answers in your comment!

First five movies in my Netflix queue:
1. Miss Potter
2. Middlemarch
3. Children of Men
4. Night at the Museum
5. Happy Feet

The last five movies I’ve watched at home:
1. The Illusionist (very good–reminded me of an M. Night Shyamalan movie)
2. Pirates of the Caribbean 2 (I own it)
3. Freedom Writers (from Netflix–good, but Stand & Deliver was better)
4. The Queen (from Netflix–better than I expected)
5. Dreamgirls (the night I bought it)

The last three movies I’ve seen at the theater:
1. Pirates of the Caribbean 3
2. Amazing Grace
3. Dreamgirls

The last documentaries/nonfiction films I’ve watched:
1. Unseen Worlds (a PBS documentary about microbiology–my mom is so proud!)
2. An Inconvenient Truth

Three upcoming new releases I’ll go see at the theater:
1. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (July 13)
2. The Bourne Ultimatum (August 3)
3. Becoming Jane (August 3)

The one film I think everyone should see at least once:
Farenheit 911

    We cancelled our Netflix subscription after we had two DVDs on the coffee table for 2 months. I can’t name the last five movies I watched at home, but the last one was Reign of Fire (repeat-I love that movie-I’m weird.) Before that was Monte Python and the Holy Grail, History of the World Part 1-can’t recommend it-very raunchy. I can’t even tell you the last movie I saw at the theater-we just don’t go. We watch Bizarre Foods on the Travel Channel-it’s a documentary, right? I can’t think of any upcoming movies I just have to see in the theater. Daniel and I both love to watch movies and go to the theater, we’re just way too busy.

    1. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (July 13)
    2. The Bourne Ultimatum (August 3)

    –> Yeah I’ll probably be seeing those in theater too 🙂 I don’t go that often to the movies but there are a lot I want to see lately. Another one my sister and I are going to see in theater is the Fantastic Four Sequel (Yes I liked the first 🙂 And yes I’ll probably like the second. I’ve got this thing about superheroes–so long as it isn’t spider man.)

    I soooooo want to see Night at the Museum & The Queen. The Illusionist looks good, too.

    Am I the only one not on Netflix? I want to see the Queen too. Sadly, there are so few movies that I can watch without feeling convicted. About half the time I end up turning them off halfway through, or falling asleep.

    Oops, half of this response was meant for THIS post, not the “Heartthrobs” one. Here’s the relevent half; the other half was, oddly enough, in response to one of the comments on the previous “Fun Friday”:

    If you’re into documentaries (I see you’re obviously a fan of Moore, though I think Farenheit 911 was more an entertaining 2 hour montage than a real documentary), but you should DEFINITELY check out Moore’s latest film, Sicko. It’s technically not out yet, but I snagged a pre-release, and I must say it’s brilliant. Be sure to check it out if you get a chance. It’s about the state of the health system in America and considering both myself and my family have been blessed with generally good health, I found it mind-blowing.
