I saw these questions on Cynthia's blog and thought they looked like fun. My situation is maybe different from some because I'm a teacher and have shown certain movies multiple times in my classes over a period of years:

1. Name a movie that you have seen more than ten times.
The Way West, directed by Ric Burns.
Thelma & Louise
Hearts and Minds
Regret to Inform
On and Off the Rez
2. Name a movie that you've seen multiple times in the theater.
Tombstone (twice)
3. Name an actor that would make you more inclined to see a movie.
Johnny Depp, Robert Duvall, Sissy Spacek, Ed Harris
4. Name an actor that would make you less likely to see a movie.
Jim Carrey, Robin Williams
5. Name a movie that you can and do quote from.
Thelma and Louise: "You get what you settle for."
6. Name a movie musical that you know all of the lyrics to all of the songs.
7. Name a movie that you have been known to sing along with.
8. Name a movie that you would recommend everyone see.
12 Angry Men, An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge
10. Name an actor that launched his/her entertainment career in another medium but who has surprised you with his/her acting chops.

14. Ever walked out of a movie?
No, but I wanted to walk out of that Star Wars movie, the first one they came out with after the great trilogy. Boring! But I didn't want to disappoint my children.
15. Name a movie that made you cry in the theater.
Several. Such as What's Eating Gilbert Grape, Magnolia, Narnia, Pan's Labyrinth

About Me

My photo
Northwest Ohio, United States
"I was no better than dust, yet you cannot replace me. . . Take the soft dust in your hand--does it stir: does it sing? Has it lips and a heart? Does it open its eyes to the sun? Does it run, does it dream, does it burn with a secret, or tremble In terror of death? Or ache with tremendous decisions?. . ." --Conrad Aiken

Fave Painting:  The Three Ages of Man and Death
by Albrecht Dürer

From the First Chapter

The Secret of Hurricanes : That article in the Waterville Scout said it was Shake- spearean, all that fatalism that guides the Kennedys' lives. The likelihood of untimely death. Recently, another one died in his prime, John-John in an airplane. Not long before that, Bobby's boy. While playing football at high speeds on snow skis. Those Kennedys take some crazy chances. I prefer my own easy ways. Which isn't to say my life hasn't been Shake-spearean. By the time I was sixteen, my life was like the darkened stage at the end of Hamlet or Macbeth. All littered with corpses and treachery.
