Here's a nice light-hearted one in contrast to the heaviness of the past couple of days.

First movie you can remember seeing?
“The Dark Crystal”.

Last movie you saw that you loved? “Eternal Sunshine”. Boring answer, I know.

First movie you saw on a date? “Independence Day”. My date took me to see it because his friend worked in the theatre so he could get in for free. And then partway through the movie, he leaned over and said “If you're scared, you can hold my hand”. Needless to say, there was no second date.

First movie you can remember that you disagreed strongly with the critics/reviews about?
“Forest Gump”. Am I the only one that can see through this “movies wherein famous actors play retards are heartwarming” bullshit?!

What movie have you dreamed about? I usually just come up with my own movies in my dreams. Or else they're weird hybrids of characters in my world. I had quite a few nightmares about The Hulk as a kid (Lou Ferrigno was SCARY) I've had some pretty naughty dreams about hobbits though…

A secret thing you did in a darkened theater Faye and I like to bring in booze. I only want to keep that secret from the movie theatre employees. However, I think we all know what Alanis and Uncle Joey would put for this answer.

Ever lied about something so you could see a movie? When I was a kid, my dad and I told my mom we were going to see some kids movie and we saw “Army Of Darkness” instead. That was pretty fun.

Ever saw a drive-in movie?
No :(

The worst movie you ever saw and the best thing about it “Moulin Rouge”. The best thing about it is that it wasn't longer and I never have to see it again.

One person you’ve never seen a movie with but would like to sometime:
I don't know. I think I've seen a movie with all of my friends at least once. When that's all you like to do for fun, it's pretty much inevitable.

What kind of movie you’d like to see with that person:
See above.

A movie you’re embarrassed to admit you enjoyed:
I'm embarrassed about the number of times I've watched “Empire Records” on VH1 but I haven't enjoyed it once.

Your favorite movie and the worst thing about it:
I do not have a favorite movie. I love them too much to pick. So the worst thing about it is probably that I get so invested in movies that a really good or bad movie can color my entire week.

To understand something about you, people need to see this movie:
“Tromeo and Juliet”.

List by title: Happiest/saddest/ funniest/ scariest/ overrated/ underrated:
HAPPIEST: “Fight Club” (Obviously, I don't usually go for Penny Marshall type happy movies. The end of “Fight Club” has always felt so uplifting for me).
SADDEST: “The Fox and The Hound”
FUNNIEST: “The Jerk” or “Zoolander”
SCARIEST: It's pretty damned hard to scare me, so I'm gonna go with Faye's as of yet unmade film “Fetch”. Or else that part of “The Ring” where the giant-eyed child says “Don't you know she never sleeps?”.
UNDERRATED: “Human Nature”

A movie you haven’t seen yet but you really want to?

A movie character you could really relate to, or even wish you could be like? I can really relate to Rob Gordon in “High Fidelity” but I don't know if that's something to be proud of. I wish I could be Jean Grey in “X-Men” so I could totally hit that Wolverine action.

When I say the word “erudite”, you say the first movie that comes to mind:
Lord of The Rings Trilogy

Now replace the word in quotation marks above with your own word for the next person:

Who is your favorite actor or actress?
Crispin Hellion Glover

What book would you like to see made into a movie, and who would you want to direct it?
Jesus. Haven't they done enough damage with this already?

And finally: Add a question.
What movie did you watch more than any other movie when you were a kid?
“Clash of the Titans”!!!!!

I'm somewhat ashamed to admit that last night I watched all two hours of the premiere of UPN's “Amish in the City”. Here's how I imagine the pitch meeting for that show went down:

Fresh Young Idealistic Kid “I have an idea for a show. The Amish have that thing where when they're 19 or so, they get to go out into the world and experience sin and then decide if they want to come back and be confirmed as Amish. I think it's called Rump-springer. Anyway, we follow around a few of these kids to see how they react to the rest of the world and whether or not they decide to remain Amish”.

Jaded Exec #1 “That's a great idea! But we should make them all live in a house together; Real World style”.

Jaded Exec #2 “Yeah. And they shouldn't just go to any city. They should go to the most depraved, debaucherous city in the country!”

Jaded Exec #3 “Naw…Vegas has been done. Let's bring them to L.A. That's depraved enough. Then we don't have to hire a remote crew.”

Jaded Exec #2 “Perfect. And also, we need a foil. How about we get 6 NON-Amish kids to live with them.”

Jaded Exec #1 “Yes! But they have to be the most self-centered, shallow, spoiled kids we can find.”

Jaded Exec #3 “Of course. But one has to be black and one has to be gay.”

Jaded Exec #2 “Can they be the same kid?”

Jaded Exec #3 “No.”

Jaded Exec #1 “This is great! The spoiled “normal” kids will be so freaked out by the Amish and hopefully they'll corrupt the hell out of them! This is gold!”

Fresh Young Idealistic Kid “Um…this isn't quite what I had in mind. I kind of wanted to focus on something we haven't seen before by showing these peaceful people having to explore their faith and seeing their reactions to a capitalist culture so very diff…”

Jaded Execs “SHUT UP! It's our show now!”

Needless to say, I must watch every episode of this show.
