She made me do it!

I was hoping it wouldn't come to this, but I got tagged, and so I must answer the questions...



1. Total number of films I own on DVD/video:

This is embarrassing. Not a lot. Despite having had a VCR since 1997, my guesstimate is I only have between 50-75 films in total -- and most of them are languishing in the storage box downstairs. Most of them, I don't even know what they are.

The total number of DVDs I own: 12, 8 of which are films.

2. The last film I bought:

King Arthur -- watched it once, didn't like it, waste of money.

3. The last film I watched:

At home: Star Wars - Attack of the Clones -- didn't like it. Hayden Christensen cannot act, Anakin Skywalker is a whiney brat, and why Padme would fall for him is a complete mystery. Their romance lacks chemistry and suffers from awful dialogue. Also, Ewan McGregor never gets a chance to show what a good actor he really is. Love the costumes, though.
At the flicks: Wimbledon, I think, last summer. What can I say? I don't go out much.
A quiet day at the office: Cold Mountain - ::sniffle:: BEAUTIFUL.

4. Five films that I watch a lot:

I don’t tend to watch again and again. But every few years I get an itch to see The Sound of Music again, and I have seen Cat On A Hot Tin Roof more times than I care to count...what else? Oh yes, Bram Stoker's Dracula, because it's the first horror film I've ever watched that hasn't given me nightmares -- and because Gary Oldman is teh pretty.

::thinks very hard to come up with a fourth movie::

I know! I've seen Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 3 times since it came out, and every time because I wanted to -- that makes it a film I watch a lot!

::really racks brain to think of a fifth, but fails miserably::

I haven't got the LotR-box set yet, but I expect that when I do, I will watch it more than once...


5. Tag 5 people and have them put this in their journal:

I don't know, who hasn't done this yet? desdemonaspace, have you? Whoever reads this, hasn't done it yet, and thinks it might be fun (boy, are you in for a disappointment!): go for it -- meanwhile, I'll just sit over here and rust.
