A Random Blog of Everything I like
I’ve been reading this meme in everyone’s blog and it’s quite interesting although few of the question is a bit shameful to admit ;p . When I saw Roisin of Sundryandco tagged Ronan of filmplicity, I have a strong feeling I was going to be tagged next … I’m a really good psychic 😉
What is this meme anyway? It’s a seven question about me meme. All I have to do is answering 7 questions related to me and movies.
So…here it goes.
#1 What was your first movie-going experience?
Superman 2, I was still a toddler. I don’t really remember much, my parents wanted to watch the movie and no one to baby-sit us so they took us all to the cinema. That experience made me a movie addict.
#2 How many DVDs do you own?
He he he .*guilty laugh* … I only have 2 original DVDs, The Matrix and Sunshine. I have about 30 original VCDs (haven’t upgraded them to DVD yet) and countless of Pirate DVDs and downloaded files…Sorry!! Plus, I’m more into renting and borrowing than owning.
There are so many reasons for this shameful act. 1) The ones I really want are not available in DVD stores, Imported DVDs are too damn expensive (and I rather use my money to buy imported DVD and CD of L’Arc en Ciel and Muse). 2) I only want to collect movies that I like THE MOST, if I only like it (of course after seeing it on theater), just watch it on TV (they will run it over and over again) or rent it 3) Most of my pirate DVDs are Dorama (Japanese TV series), I wanted the original DVDs SO BADLY but they don’t show up here and pirate and download are the only source 😦 .
Okay…you may judge me now!! I’m ready.
#3 What is your guilty pleasure movie?
Auch…I really don’t want to answer this!!
….Okay, after much thinking, I think I need to confess and lift this guilty feeling 😉 I hate boyband! Boys who sing and dance are just too much to see…However, I totally enjoy this Dorama called Waterboys, it’s about a group of school boys who has ambition to perform synchronize swimming on their school yearly festival. It was a very educational drama about friendship and determination. They faced a lot of rejections.
Well…ehm..ehm…my guilty pleasure is seeing those young boys dance around in their swimming pants. There! I’ve said it!
#4 You’ve compiled a list of your top 100 movies. Which one didn’t make the cut?
Hmmm….this one is difficult. And right now I’m not in thinking mood, maybe I add it later
#5 Which movie(s) do you compulsively watch over and over again?
I’ve written 8 DVDs I would carry if I was stranded in an isolated desert Island…all those movies are the movie I’ve compulsively watch over and over again. Plus, some Dorama such as Waterboys, Gokusen, GTO, and Orthros no Inu (just seen it but I’m sure I will watch it again and again)
#6 Classics you’re ashamed to admit you haven’t seen?
I haven’t seen Gone With The Wind but I don’t feel ashamed about it, because it’s not my kind of movie. The one that I am ashamed of is Seven Samurai, I like samurai movie but I haven’t seen this legendary movie yet.
#7 What movie posters are hanging in your room?
Right now, NONE!! I never much of a poster person, I don’t even hang poster of my favorite bands. But I do remember hanging The Matrix poster long time ago, the poster was so captivating.
There you go…7 questions about me related to movies, I feel naked now 😉
I’m going to pass this to my fellow Indonesian Ruth of Flixchatter.
