We have been nominated by Jenna and Allie of Flick Chicks for the Sunshine Blogger Award! On behalf of my cohorts here at What About Movies?, I accept! Thank you ladies!
To accept this award, one simply has to:
Post the award on your blog
Thank the person who nominated you
Answer the 11 questions they set you
Pick another 11 bloggers (and let them know they are nominated!)
Set them 11 questions
Here are my anwers for Jenna’s and Allie’s 11 Questions:
Settle an ongoing Flick Chicks debate for us. Which Ryan is best, Reynolds or Gosling?
Gosling! Because HEY GIRL, he is RyGos!
Who do you think Rey’s Parents are? (We’re talking Star Wars here)
Most signs point to Luke Skywalker as the baby daddy. Or did I read the signs wrong? But I would love for Leia and Han to be the parents. Rey would then both be a Skywalker and a Solo. And and the twin sister of our favorite emo, Kylo Ren! The Solo-Skywalker family isn’t exactly the model family, so yeah, that’ll give us some great drama.
What was the first movie you saw in the cinema?
Jurassic Park (1993)! I was scared out of my 7-year old mind! And it was the best!
What’s your ultimate guilty pleasure movie?
Teen movies are my guilty pleasure because I am a full grown person, way past the age of puberty, and therefore no longer the target market for this genre. But I find them to be really good fun. Most notable would be Mean Girls! (And then there’s Bring It On, and Freaky Friday, and all the High School Musicalses!)
What’s your go-to cinema snack?
I don’t usually eat when in the cinema because the prices in the snack stand are atrocious, and because I like to concentrate on the movie. But if I have to absolutely get a snack, I’d say a bag of potato chips or plain popcorn. Yep I am boring as heck.
What’s your best piece of advice for new bloggers?
Network! Because you will find that there so many awesome people who share the same passion as you. And talk to them! (I need to follow this advice myself!)
Is there a movie out there that you hate with a passion, and why?
Hmmm. I think it has to be The Legend of Hercules (2014). I love Greek myth including their retellings, and I really don’t mind campy-ness when done right. I realize that Hercules is the kind of character that you can really go over-the-top, campy-funny because you know, Herc isn’t ‘exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer. But this retelling didn’t do that. It’s kitschy, but not in a deliberate, funny way. The action scenes and CGI are shoddy. The narrative is uninspired. The diaologue is bland. The acting, wooden. I just can’t.
Is there a movie out there that you hate with a passion, and why? If you could create a sequel for any movie that currently doesn’t have one, which would it be?
Zombieland (2009). I miss Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita and Little Rock. (Zombieland: The Second Wave? Zombieland: Life After the Undead? Bah.)
What other hobbies do you have, aside from movies and blogging?
Reading! All of us here in What About Movies? first met through our online book club. And then we realized we love movies as much as we love books, and the rest, as they say, is history!
If a movie was made about your life, who would you cast to play you?
Jian Yang from Silicon Valley! Hahaha.
What’s been your favourite movie of the year so far?
Sing Street (2016)!
