I've started so I'll finish

I'm actually starting to get bored of this 30 Day Movie Meme, even though it seemed like a fun thing to do in the beginning; and a great way of masking the fact that I haven't had much of a life to be getting on with these last few months. But I've started so I'll finish...and today I've reached the halfway point: Day 15 - Best musical.

I wouldn't like to say that this is the best musical ever, as there are far too many good ones to choose from; but The Wizard of Oz certainly is one of the earliest and most impressive musical films I've ever seen. As a child, I loved -and identified most with- the Cowardly Lion, while the Flying Monkeys scared me half to death, and as for the Wicked Witch...she was truly terrifying, even more so when I saw her green face (our parents didn't get a colour TV until my sister and I were well into our teens, and we never had more than one television set in our house, which wasn't unusual then but, judging by their reaction when they find I do not have a telly in the bedroom, strikes some people as highly eccentric these days).

Day 16 - Your guilty pleasure movie
Day 17 - Favorite series of related movies
Day 18 - Favorite title sequence
Day 19 - Best movie cast
Day 20 - Favorite kiss
Day 21 - Favorite romantic couple
Day 22 - Favorite final scene/line
Day 23 - Best explosion or action scene
Day 24 - Quote you use most often
Day 25 - A movie you plan on watching (old or new)
Day 26 - Freakishly weird movie ending
Day 27 - Best villain
Day 28 - Most overhyped movie
Day 29 - Movie you have watched more than ten times
Day 30 - Saddest death scene
Day 31 - Scene that made you stand up and cheer
