Addendum: movie meme

I've been meaning to get to this meme (snurched from grandmofhelsing) for at least a week, so, what better way to show January the door...

1) First Movie you saw in a theater?
I'm pretty sure it was One Million Years B.C. (the Hammer remake, not the original).

2) First R-Rated Film You Bought A Ticket For By Yourself?
Honestly, I'm really not sure. But it may have been The Shining (1980).

3) Favorite Movie Snack?
I don't eat in theatres. It's this weird hang-up I have. I think it bugs Spooky.

That's a really hard one. Seeing the restored Lawrence of Arabia in 70mm? That might be it. Or seeing Citizen Kane on the big screen.

5) Stupidest thing you did that you saw in a Movie?
Er...okay, I'm going to take this question seriously. I once jumped from one moving car onto another (spring 1982). I know I'd seen it some movie somewhere. I think it was an Indiana Jones sort of thing.

6) First film to inspire carnal thoughts for the opposite sex?
I have no frelling idea. I was sexually precocious, so there's no telling.

RE: porn films

They showed Deep Throat as one of the freebie films one weekend at college. A bunch of us went, having never seen a porn film and hearing it was such a famous classic porn film, and we were curious. I can't remember much about it other than most of the audience didn't seem to be intent on watching the film so much as snickering and making comments about the bad makeup and the horrendously ugly men. Especially the ugly guys.

A very long time ago I worked for a guy who rented dance films out to various people and places. He had a juicy porn film that we played for ourselves from time to time. I forget its title but it involved a man chasing a "french" maid around and around a couch. Must have been hot stuff when films were new.

Or seeing Citizen Kane on the big screen.

I envy you very much.

Maurice Jarre, Lawrence of Arabia.

I've had that music stuck in my head for days. I guess I oughta watch that movie again soon . . .

The 8th Ellen Ripley clone.

I like that answer.

I personally prefer Keaton to Chaplin.

That said, your choice of music and your mention of Planes, Trains, and Automobiles sure brought back a lot of pleasant memories for me.

I'm also glad to see Rope there, and pleasantly surprised to see the remake of Dawn of the Dead, which I enjoyed (I thought you'd go for the original Night... or Shaun of the Dead).

BTW, for Westerns, did you like Unforgiven? That would probably be my favorite.

BTW, for Westerns, did you like Unforgiven?

Yep. It would be on a more extensive list of my favourites.
