A Sharp Right Turn

Copied this from Laura, since she always has the bestest entries..I swear..
She is in the middle of her story about how her and her husband met…
Read her here! If you haven't read her, you should BTW.

1. One movie that made you laugh:
Bachelor Party”. I love that “Himalayan humor”, the sexual innuendos, and subtle humor you get from just a look. The funny thing about it is the group of guys in the movie are similar to the group of g-friends I had in high school and the reactions to things were very much the same…I remember even saying out loud that I wanted to go out with someone like Tom Hanks, someone who was really funny etc and not serious about himself….I got P instead..

2. One movie that made you cry:
Oh Christ, lemme see that would definitely be “The Color Purple”. I cry so damn hard I hiccup …I usually can never finish watching it because I’m screaming, crying and hiccupping…It took 4 times to get through it all the first time I tried to watch it.

3. One movie you loved when you were a child:
I didn’t watch movies very much when I was a kid, I was a reader!

4. One movie you’ve seen more than once:
"Bachelor Party"-When I need a good laugh and "The Lake House" when I feel sad…..no hiccups allowed!

5. One movie you loved, but were embarrassed to admit it:
Ever After”. I think by far it’s a terrible movie. Especially since it’s supposed take place in France and the King, Queen and Prince all have British accents and Drew Barrymore speaks English with a few French words casually thrown in. I like it for Dougray Scott (hotness on a stick!) and how it plays up Cinderella as more of an independent woman instead of a mopey, sobby servant, and it’s romantical…ummm, a little bit…

6. One movie you hated:
Joe vs the Volcano”. It was a lovely concept, but the movie sucked every last particle out of my being.. I think I lost I.Q. points watching it and ended up with a lobotomy as a result!

7. One movie that scared you:
I got a couple, “American Werewolf in London”.
This scares the shit out of me so bad I usually have to sleep at someone’s house and with the lights on. Last time I watched this I stayed at my parents house for 2 days, slept with my mother, AND had nightmares for a week. The original “Alien”. The “In space no one can hear you scream” catch phrase scared the bejesus right out of me.

8. One movie that bored you:
The First Star Wars Prequel. It’s just a movie about a friggin’ pod race, or at least that’s half the damn movie. Move OVER George, let the director from Jedi take this one!!!! I wanted to hang myself with toilet paper!

9. One movie that made you happy:
The Lake House”. Especially at the end when she runs over to the mailbox and Keanu comes around the corner and she says “You waited for me!” As they say, “ laughing through tears is my favorite emotion.” Keanu Reeves is hot!

10. One movie that made you miserable:
Joe vs the Volcano” LAME!!!

11. One movie you weren’t brave enough to see:
Saw, and Saw II. I hate watching really gory movies. It’s not art or a movie, it’s just gore, usually with a fairly weak plot line. If I wanted to see shit all cut up and crap, I’d go to the local slaughterhouse.

12. One movie character you’ve fallen in love with:
Tony Stark/Iron Man-Robert Downey Jr. The man was born to play Iron Man!! I never could have envisioned RDJ playing Stark before, but now….speechless. Jeff Bridges is still fairly hot too!

13. The last movie you saw:
Niagara”, at home via Netflix. Believe it or not, it’s one of those movies I’ve never seen. I thought it was ok, nothing to shout from the rooftops about though. The last theatre movie was “Iron Man” which I love!!! I was already curious about the comic book character, but RDJ brought Stark to life, even down to the liquor bill! Stark makes an appearance in the new Hulk movie too. I still think they should have gotten Eric Bana for that, Ed Norton is sort of a puss. I’d barely believe the guy could even get pissed.

14. The next movie you hope to see:
The Happening” is the only one I want to see for now.
