Week 19 - Disney Films

Everyone can commence to be jealous - Barry & la famille are going to Walt Disney World this weekend! Hopefully the rides will be more exciting than the weather....

This week we have a Mickey Mouse Movie Meme - all about Disney films.

1) What is your favorite Disney film? If it's animated, what's your favorite live action film?

2) What Disney character is your favorite, and why? Which character do you think is overrated and/or overused? (they don't have to be animated characters)

3) Why do you think the Disney appeal has endured so long and been so influential in American film and culture?

BONUS) If you were Walt Disney and you suddenly came back from the dead (or got unfrozen, or had your head reattached, or whatever), what would be your impressions of what the company has made since you "died" (in 1966)?

Wish upon a star, and give the right answers!

Week 18 - The big screen.

The very first movie I ever watched on the big screen was Home Alone. Now that cute litle boy is being arrested for drug charges.

Do you remember your first time?

1. Do you remember the very first time you watched a movie on the big screen? Describe it.

2. What was the last movie you saw on the big screen?

3. Did you ever like a movie so much that you paid to watch it more than once? If so, what movie?

BONUS) How much does a movie ticket cost in your neck of the woods?

Week 17 - And Now For Something Completely Different

We're going to take a different tack at Theatre Thursday this week.

You've just been hired to write, cast, direct and produce your own movie. You've been given $75 million to hire a cast and crew, and 90 days to shoot. The film is scheduled to open a year and 1/2 from today.

1) What is the name of your movie?

2) Who are the stars you hire?

3) What is the general plot/style/theme of your dream movie?

Feel free to dream - what movie would you, Gentle Reader, like to make yourself with all those resources? It can be autobiographical, historical, or completely fictional. Be careful and don't go overbudget (Getting Harrison Ford, Julia Roberts, and Robin Williams all in the same film won't leave you enough money to actually shoot, nor will on-location filming on Mars likely leave anything for actors).

BONUS) What's one obstacle you see that could prevent you from achieving this dream movie?

Put your name and link in the comments.

Roll 'em....Action!

Week 16 - When Animals Attack.

Anacondas opened up in theaters last week. There have been tons of movies made about 'killer' animals. From Cujo, to King Kong, to Jaws, what do you think of these 'bad' animal flicks?

1) What is your favorite movie about some type of 'animal gone wrong'?

2) Do you end up feeling sorry for the animal, or just scared to death?

3) Do you think there is a movie about a 'killer animal' that went way too far or was just a ridiculous movie?

BONUS) What kind of killer animal movie would you like to see made? Scary squirrels anyone?
