I swiped this Movie Meme from selenak. Actually saw it last night and got stumped by the first question and thought about it off and on today, and yep, still stumped. Frigging movie meme is harder than it looks.

[We'll see if I can do this...every time I do one of these memes, I forget the movies or tv shows or books I've seen and draw a complete blank. It's weird. Almost as if something in me doesn't want to do it. OR maybe, I just can't make up my mind. This one might work, because note -- it's not the best or the only one. Just happens to be whatever comes to mind.]

A Movie I Love: His Girl Friday (based on the play, The Front Page)

An Action Movie I Love: Face-Off (based on a Hong Kong Action film, it starred John Travolta and Nick Cage, whose characters switch places)

A Drama I Love: Breaking Away

A Western I Love: My Name is Nobody (1973) This starred Terence Hill and Henry Fonda, and managed to play homage to and poke fun at all the major Western Tropes. I think I've seen it ten times.

A Horror Movie I Love: Jurassic Park (will watch it whenever it pops up on television)

A Comedy I Love: Noises Off

A Romance Movie I Love: (Sort of already have Gross Point Blank in another category)...Romancing the Stone

A Noir I Love: The Maltese Falcon

A Disney Movie I Love: Robin Hood (1973). Best Robin ever. (I loved this movie so much as a child that I slept with the picture book. Saw it a million times. And when it came on tv, taped it and watched on a scratchy tape. Years and years later, I saw the guy ho voiced Robin in a production of the Shakespeare Comedy that I can never remember the name of with the character Shakespeare in the Park. I bonded with a fellow theater goer/Buffy fan board member over our mutual love of that film.)

A Sci Fi Movie I Love: Blade Runner. (Apparently they are doing a sequel which is coming out at the end of this year or next, starring Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling...and I have no clue why. It's really not a movie that requires a sequel. It's perfect as is. I've seen it a million times too and I think I own it.)

An Animated Movie I Love: Spirited Away

A Superhero Movie I Love: The Dark Knight. (They FINALLY got Batman right -- or the Batman comics that I'd loved in college and wanted to see on screen. Can't re-watch it though. But I vividly remember it -- favorite sequence is the end with a devastated Bruce Wayne and Commissioner and an insane Half and Half.)

A War Movie I Love: The Guns of Navarone

An Exploitation Movie I Love: Pulp Fiction

A Musical I Love: West Side Story (I tried to think of another one...but no, West Side Story)

An Historical Movie I Love: Lawrence of Arabia

A Bad Movie I Love: Tremors (which is also a horror movie. It's so bad, it's funny.)

A Childhood Favorite: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang or Escape From Witch Mountain (the 1970s version)

A Shakespeare Movie I Love: Franco Zeffrelli's Romeo and Juliet (everyday on my way to work last year, I'd listen to a subway busker play the theme song on his accordion in the subway tunnel between Sixth and Fifth Avenues...he did a great job.)

A Franchise I Love: Star Trek

A Trilogy I Love: Star Wars (the original three films...the other's have not quite lived up to them.)

A Guilty Pleasure I Love: Gross Point Blank. (Actually saw this movie when it was still in development. It and Back to the Future -- I saw rough cuts of, or previews before anyone else.)

A Movie Recently Seen: Doctor Strange

My Favourite of This Year: The year is still young. So far, Doctor Strange (I really haven't seen any movies this year, so far it's been Sing and Dr. Strange. I don't tend to get out to the movies very often. I keep meaning to see Hidden Figures, Moonlight, Logan, etc...)

A Favourite of All Time: The Sting
