03/02/2007 Entry: "Jay's First MI-5"
Jay is a new player with the MI-5. He thought up this week's questions.
1. What's the first movie that you can remember seeing in at a theatre?
Like my sister, the first movie I remember seeing was Bambi at The Strand. I'm quite sure we sat in the balcony. I don't really remember much from the movie, other than the fire scene. If I recall, fellow blogger Aunt Ginny took us.
2. What's your favorite movie & why?
Star Wars. The first one, the original one, the real one. I was very into Star Wars when I was a kid. I guess I'm still "into it" a little. Julia and I have our own lightsabers. :-)
3. What's your most truly hated, despised, detested, etc. movie & why?
Like my beloved wife, Boxing Helena get the worst movie nod from me. Sometimes I want to watch it again and see if it was really as bad as I remember it. I did that once with Moulin Rouge. I hated it the first time, so I decided to watch it again. The second time, I shut it off about 20 minutes in. It, too, is horrible.
4. What movie can you watch over & over again?
It's hard to pick just one. Star Wars, Citizen Kane, and Amadeus.
5. What movie was obviously based on your life & why do you think so?
I guess I don't really have movie about me, but I do sympathize with a particular character: Salieri, from Amadeus. His plight? Having enough talent to recognize genius, but not enough to excel at anything himself. Most days, I feel like that. And no, I'm not fishing for compliments. I really do feel that way.
