Lights! Camera! Action!

The Thursday Three goes to the movies.

1) Name three movies you could not live without on a desert island.

I never know whether to answer this kind of question with favorites or to think strategically and plan to bring movies that are long and rerquire a lot of analysis to get, so that I'd be occupied with them longer. I chose the former this time. At present the movies that come to mind that I'd want to take along are The Princess Bride, Indiana Jones, and Breakfast at Tiffany's. I seriously would consider Ben Hur, but I'd rather stare at Harrison Ford than Charleton Heston.

2) What movie have you fallen asleep in the middle of/asked for your money back/thrown up while watching?

I've never done any of the above although I've watched many stinkers. Just recently I checked out The Prince and Me, which as my husband has repeatedly reminded me was a completely stupid movie without even the redeeming quality of being funny. At least checking it out from the library was free though.

3) Who would play you and your significant other in the movie of your life?

Terry didn't say there had to be much resemblence, so I think I'd like a young Lauren Bacall or Katherine Hepburn to play me. Winona Ryder, despite her shoplifting tendencies, might work. Probably the chubby, Bridget Jones style Renee Zellweger would be more accurate though.

To play Justin, one really needs to find a really cute young actor who never seems to age past about 16. Leonardo DiCaprio never seems to age, but he's not cute, just icky. When I first met Justin he looked a bit like Daniel Radcliffe, but he's gotten past the young punk phase. I think I'd go with Tom Cruise. Short, dark and handsome fits my husband pretty well.


Justin kinda reminds me of Jason Bateman in the show "Arrested Development."

I was thinking more along the lines of an Alex P. Keaton (Michael Fox) kind of guy myself, not that I really "know" your husband or anything.

Alex P. Keaton would be a pretty good match -- looks and personailty-wise. :)
