Here I go….
Anticipating Movie of 2014 –
Book Adaptation I’d Love To See –
——————One that hasn’t been done? The Long Walk by Richard Bachman or any Vince Flynn (RIP) novel.
——————Or one that hasn’t been done right? Prince of Tides by Pat Conroy. Loved the book, hated what Babs did to it.
Celebrity I’d Most Like To Meet –
——————None, wouldn’t want to burst the bubble on what I think of any of them. On the other hand, if we were talking about movie characters, there are numerous I’d love to meet!
Dream Director-Actor Pairing –
——————Christopher Nolan and Kevin Kline (The most versatile actor around)

Genre I Watch The Most –
Hidden Gem –
——————Beautiful Girls (1996) and Nobody’s Fool (1994)
Important Moment in My Film Life –

Kiddie Movie I Still Shamelessly Enjoy –
Location I’d Most Like To Visit –

Netflix Movie I Actually Watched –
——————Don’t get Netflix here in Israel, so I can’t answer this one.
One Movie I Saw In Theaters More Than Once –
——————I saw Return of the Jedi (1983) 17 times in the theater. I used to be able to count off which whom I saw each one and when. Ah, The glory days of youth!!!!
Preferred Place To Watch A Movie – (Cinema or at home)

Quote that Inspires Me –

Very Excited For Award Show Season?

Your latest movie-related obsession –
ZZZ-Catchers – (name a movie that has put you to sleep)
——————I fell asleep watching Citizen Kane (1941) when I saw it in 2007, (think I need to re-watch it because it can’t really be THAT bad)
