I'm IT so here IT is...
1) Total number of films I own on DVD/video:
Assuming that each episode of the box set of "Mork and Mindy" counts as 1, then 95. That does NOT include movies I have personally recorded off of the TV or home movies. And that's only the ones that *I* have on the shelf. Not all of the boxes are unpacked yet and I GUARANTEE McGyver has more videos in a box somewhere.
2) The last film I bought:
For the kids? Dora's Fairytale Adventure - in the span of 48 hours I have seen/heard that damn video at LEAST 10 times.
For myself? Ocean's Twelve. I LOVED Oceans Eleven - what a wonderful cast and a well-written/produced movie. George Clooney, Andy Garcia, Brad Pitt AND Matt Damon (and Don Cheadle!) all in ONE movie?? I love it! Now, ask me if I've actually WATCHED Oceans Twelve...
3) The last film I watched:
I honestly cannot remember. I don't count the kids' movies (well, except The Incredibles - another movie I love!) and I can't remember the last time I actually sat down to watch a movie. I'm hoping, once I'm done with these classes, to use my coupon for a FREE pay-per-view movie to see "Hotel Rwanda". And, no, I have not watched Oceans Twelve yet. Sad, isn't it?
4) Five films that I watch a lot or that mean a lot to me (in no particular order):
All of the original Star Wars movies. McGyver and I both are Star Wars junkies and we're turning Princess Trouble into one too (she LOVES Princess Leia).
L.A. Confidential - probably one of the best-written thriller/who-dunnits out there. And Russell Crowe is easy on the eyes.
Christmas Vacation/A Christmas Story - our Thanksgiving Day tradition (neither one of us is a HUGE football fan) is to sit and watch these two movies to get "in the mood" for the upcoming holiday season!
So I Married an Axe Murder - Mike Meyers is AWESOME! I love all of his characters. One of my college roommates had a Scottish mother and could quote lines from this movie perfectly. Had us laughing beer out our noses constantly!
Pulp Fiction - what more needs to be said? If you haven't seen it, you wouldn't understand.
5) Tag 5 people and have them put this in their journal:
Hmm...this might be tough. I'm not sure how many of my blogger friends are "into" this type of thing.
