Movie Meme: because apparently I have alot of time to spare

I found this movie meme over at Modern Fabulosity and despite the fact that I am only in the junior leagues of movie lovers, I couldn't resist.

1. Popcorn or candy?
While I will admit a proclivity for all things gummy I am always in awe of people that bring full-on takeout meals into the theatre and I have always wanted to take my seat with a carton of chicken fried rice and spring rolls.
*but don't get me wrong, one load chew, snort, slurp or burp and I will take my plastic fork and stab you in the neck.

2. Name a movie you've been meaning to see forever.
Les Cage aux Folles. Yet for some reason I have seen the Birdcage. Don't judge.

3. You are given the power to recall one Oscar: Who loses theirs and to whom?
1998. While I am a Gwynnie lover, I have to say that Cate Blanchett was much more deserving of the award that year for her portrayal in "Elizabeth". She is the best Elizabeth I have ever seen. I mean Gwynnie got to make out with Joseph Fiennes for christ's sake, does she really get an award for that? Although, nice dress and good crying.

4. Steal one costume from a movie for your wardrobe. Which will it be?
Even though I wouldn't be able to wear it I would definitely steal the whole kit and caboodle from Nicole Kidman's wardrobe in Moulin Rouge. In particular the little Vivian Westwoodesque piece that she wears in "The Show Must Go On" number. Loves it.

5. Your favorite film franchise is...
I will laugh and any Police Academy movie at any time. I'm a sin, I know, shut up.

6. Invite five movie people over for dinner. Who are they? Why'd you invite them? What do you feed them?
Oh jesus, this is too hard.
Ok...guest list:
Parker Posey (shut up TOdie) - she's wicked and i love her
Jake Gyllenhal - an obvious one, plus he'd be required to eat topless
Maggie Gyllenhal - she needs to be my friend, but she'd have to smoke outside and couldn't bring the baby
John Cusack - he'd probably brood alot but he'd balance out the group
Meryl Streep - because she'd drink all the wine and make us play rude drinking games
Jack Black - because he'd be the only one to make Cusack laugh
Kate Winslet - mostly because my friends would kill me if I didn't invite her, but also because she'd be fun and I imagine using alot of british swear words
Cameron Crowe - he'd have amazing stories and probably bring really good pot. '

We'd eat cheese fondue, chocolate eclairs and alot of alcohol.

7. What is the appropriate punishment for people who answer cell phones in the movie theater?
Forced to sit beside the (now bleeding) chewers, snorters, slupers and burpers.

8. Choose a female bodyguard: Ripley from Aliens. Mystique from X-Men. Sarah Connor from Terminator 2. The Bride from Kill Bill. Mace from Strange Days.
Sarah Fucking Connor of course! Hello? Have you seen her arms? And that scene where she stabs the guy in the neck with the needle? Good god.

9. What's the scariest thing you've ever seen in a movie?
Bob creeping out from behind Laura Palmers dresser. Jesus christ, I get the shakes just thinking about it.

10. Your favorite genre (excluding comedy and drama) is?
While I do enjoy a good romantic comedy - I also have a secret addiction for football movies. Sick, I know. But if there's a TBS showing of "Any Given Sunday" or "Rudy" or "The Program"...I'm all over it.

11. You are given the power to greenlight movies at a major studio for one year. How do you wield this power?
First rule: No more political dramas. They're dead to me.
Second rule: No rape scenes. They're no good to anyone.
Third rule: More gag reels.

12. Bonnie or Clyde?
Bonnie. Not only did she have amazing hair and makeup, but her hats were outstanding. Ever since "Truth or Dare" I can't look Warren in the eye. Pussy.

I make no apologies for the sophmoric nature of my movie proclivities, much more academic approach to these questions would be taken by my friend over at Fasten Your Seat Belts
