Movie Meme

Having praised me up, Annie has now tagged me for this movie meme.

Here goes:

  1. Total number of films I own on DVD/Video: I had to go and count! At the moment we only have thirty four videos and twenty three DVDs, but then theres a box of old videos in the garage waiting to be junked and I'm sure I have just as many again round at my daughter's house because she snaffles them when my younger kids go over to visit.
  2. The last film I bought: would have been something 'on cheap' at Woolworth, 'Spend more than £X choose one of these fine ancient, DVDs for only £5!' I think it was Doctor Dolittle, or Casper.
  3. The last film I watched: this is tragic - embarrassing - I didnt mean to but I actually got hooked up in the movie channel yesterday daytime. Some badly acted, badly scripted B movie about a US high school footballer who donated a kidney to his granny. Still, if you want to feel crap about yourself, watching daytime movies achieves it quicker and more painlessly than picking a fight with someone.
  4. Five films that I watch a lot or that mean a lot to me: Well I never watch anything ' a lot', so these are the items I could never ever throw away, even if I havent seen them in 12 months or more: Ghost, Dirty Dancing, Truly Madly Deeply, Shirley Valentine, Educating Rita. To my mind thats every movie you could ever want for a girls night in, especially one that involved a lot of red wine. (Sigh.) One day.
  5. Tag five people and have them put this in their journal: I choose Ally, BadAunt, Cosmo-Tini, PantherGirl and PlatinumGirl.

I've done it!

Beautifully time, too, as my brain is a bit fuzzy today and so I didn't have to think of a topic myself!

Cheryl said...

Pleased to be of service then!
I did wonder if I was pushing this at my selected victims, still the others are on diff time zones so its too early to tell. Thanks!

Hi Cheryl. Educating Rita is one I forgot to mention. I think Julie Walters is brilliant anyway, but especially in that. I'm not a great film watcher, so I found it quite difficult to do.

Badaunt said...

This is going to be embarrassing. I think I'll have to do it tomorrow.

I'm going to have to work my way through your blog I like list! I've already added Ducking for apples - how I wish I'd thought of that title first!
