A Movie Tag

Well, Terri tagged me a few days ago and I am finally getting to it. It’s been a busy week, between work, kittens, and the stress of my mother visiting for the weekend. We have a complicated relationship and even 5 months of therapy is not quite enough I guess. Well she’s on her way home now and it is so quiet. I think she is not comfortable with silence; that or she likes to hear herself talk, I don’t know. What I do know is that it is completely exhausting. Well, on to the tag:

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

We have very few movies on video/DVD. In fact, I can probably name them all: Star Wars Trilogy on DVD, LOTR Extended editions, Pirates of the Caribbean, Reno 911 season 1, Malcolm in the Middle season 1, Napoleon Dynamite, Cool Hand Luke, and Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail. That’s it. Well, and the Veggie Tales/Thomas the Tank Engine/Ewoks DVDs that Luke has. I have a handful of movies on VHS that my mom bought for me but since we no longer have a VHS player in the living room, they rarely get watched.

2) The last film I bought:

Star Wars Trilogy (episodes 4-6). I went to five stores to find it for Luke last weekend and ended up paying far more than I should have since the only place that had it was Borders. Oh well, it was worth it.

3) The last film I watched:

On DVD: Return of the Jedi. At the Theater: The Bourne Supremacy (yes, it’s been almost a year since I went to a movie at the theater. We’re going to see Revenge of the Sith though).

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

Lord of the Rings: I’ve been a Tolkien fan since the first time I read the Hobbit and LOTR when I was in 6th grade. Though I wish the movies had been exactly like the books, they are still my favorite movies ever.

Dangerous Beauty: I really love this movie; it is one of the few that I have on VHS that I plan to replace with a DVD. This was probably my favorite movie before LOTR came out.

Star Wars: As an engineer (read: nerd) I really enjoy the Star Wars movies. It’s hilarious now to see the “high tech” features in 4-6, but still they are classics.

Indiana Jones: I love Harrison Ford and IMO these are classics also.

Ever After: Okay, not a wonderful movie, but a fairy tale and it has Drew Barrymore. If I need a chick flick moment, this is the movie I choose (hmmm, maybe it should be replaced on DVD too…)

Since this one has been around for awhile I’ll refrain from tagging. I intended to get to it sooner but it’s been such a busy week. Now if you all don’t mind, I think I need to play with some kittens.

    I’m a big fan of the Indiana Jones movies, too.

    I don’t think you have to be a “geek” to like the original Star Wars films. I’m not at all a technical guru, and I LOVE them!
