Name a film that you have seen more than 10 times.
Name a film that you’ve seen multiple times in the cinema.
Name an actor that would make you more inclined to see a film.
Ryan Reynolds (Helloooo! Green Lantern!!)
Name an actor that would make you less likely to see a film.
Any of the Baldwin brothers...
Name a film that you can and do quote from.
Auntie Mame. There is a line for practically any situation in life that I can use from that film!
Name a film musical that you know all of the lyrics to all of the songs.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Name a film that you would recommend everyone see.
Once again, Auntie Mame, or The Women (the 1939 original please!).
Ever walked out of a film?
There was some gay film at a festival that we went to see. We didn't last 10 minutes, and it was so bad that I don't even remember the name of it!
Name a film that made you cry in the cinema.
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. Towards the end, when Aragorn is crowned as king and Frodo and his hobbit friends start to kneel in homage to him, Aragorn says to them; "My friends, you kneel to no one." And then he kneels to them! I got all choked up!
Not usually. There's too much junk in movie theater popcorn.
How often do you go to the cinema (as opposed to renting them or watching them at home)?
Hardly ever anymore.
What’s the last film you saw in the cinema?
Believe it or not, I think it was "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" with Johnny Depp!
What’s your favourite/preferred genre of film?
Probably Chinese Martial Arts. But not the cheesy ones from the 60's and 70's. I like the modern ones like "Hero" or "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon".
What’s the first film you remember seeing in the cinema?
Mary Poppins! It was 1964 and our Nursery School teacher took the class to see it!
What film do you wish you had never seen?
"The People Under the Stairs". A god-awful horror film that, to this day, I don't know how my friend convinced me to go see it!
What is the scariest film you’ve seen?
If you could be any character portrayed in a movie, who would it be?
The Monkey King.
Total number of films you own on DVD and video.
A hundred or so.
Last film you bought.
Last film you watched.
The Forbidden Kingdom.
Five films that mean a lot to you.
1) Auntie Mame (the aunt that every gay little boy wanted!)
2) The Forbidden Kingdom (a love letter to martial arts cinema!)
3) Gojira (Godzilla) (the original, not the American version with Raymond Burr! If you haven't seen it, you should!)
4) Miracle on 34th Street (again, the original, not any of those horrible remakes!)
5) The Day the Earth Stood Still ( a classic of 1950's science fiction cinema!)
