Sunday Stealing: The Movie Nut's Meme
Do you still buy DVDs or Blu Rays (or do you just stream them)? I haven't bought a DVD in a while, but I don't stream, either. (Buffering makes me crazy!) I DVR things.
What is your guilty pleasure movie? What about it works for you? Oh! Valley of the Dolls. I adore it because it's clearly an expensive movie, but it's sooooooo tacky. I love it so very much. In fact, I may watch this trailer again, just to hear Patty Duke scream, "NEELY O'HARA!" and to see her snatch Susan Hayward's wig.
You have compiled a list of your top 100 movies. Which movies do you like, but would not make the list? You're asking me for my 101st and 102nd favorite movie? I've never tabulated it that way.
Which movie(s) do you compulsively watch over and over again? What makes it so great? The Way We Were. (If you didn't see that answer coming, you don't visit this blog often.). Babs makes it great. As does the message that to thine own self we must be true.
Classic(s) you're embarrassed to admit you haven't seen yet? Vertigo. I'm told it's Hitchcock's masterpiece and I am a huge fan of the Master of Suspense. Yet somehow I keep missing it. I think maybe because I don't like Kim Novak.
Do you have any movie posters hanging on your wall? If yes, which ones and why? Not currently. But I do have old Hollywood glamour shots dotting my hallway and a poster of Marilyn Monroe on my bedroom wall.
Tell us about a movie that you are passionate about. Psycho. It's so well made. It's so daring, especially for the time it was made. Every time I see it, I discover something else and am impressed anew.
