Tag: The Movie Meme

As I was tagged by purplecthulhu...

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

I'm not sure exactly - probably a two or three hundred (if you let me count TV and anime series).

2) Last film bought:

"Wild Palms" - Oliver Stone and Bruce Wagner's cyberpunk mini-series about VR TV in a world where Philip K. Dick was L. Ron Hubbard.

3) Last film that I watched:

Cinema: "Ocean's 12"
DVD: "Oscar"
Sky TV: "Once Upon A Time In Mexico"
Airplane: "Ocean's 12"
(I'm still actually surprised by how intelligent the recent "Ocean's" movies are. The cons are well choreographed, and layered so well that you spend time trying to work out just what was happening. It pays to watch them more than once to spot the clues. In "Ocean's 12", keep an eye on Linus' rucsac...)

4) Five films that I watch a lot or that mean a lot to me, in no particular order:

Blade Runner - "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die." Best line in a film. Ever.
Oscar - a three room, three bag farce based on "The Marriage Of Figaro", in prohibition Chicago. Starring Sylvester Stallone. It couldn't possibly work, but it does, magnificently.
Mononoke-Hime - Miyazaki's master-work. An ecological fable of gods and men, set in middle ages Japan.
La Cité des Enfants Perdus - Caro and Jeunet's fantasy of mad science, strange happenings and love that transcends all barriers. A wonderful film.
For All Mankind - Al Reinert's wonderful documentary. Eno's music, and NASA archive footage to paste together a history of the Apollo missions.

5) Pick on five people. Tag five people and have them put this on their journal.

Supposedly Rutger Hauer wrote most of his last speech himself. If that's true, wowser.
