30 Day Movie Challenge: Day 30: Last movie you watched

16 07 2011

Mary and Max, a cute, sweet, endearing film about friendship and a reminder that just because a film is animated, does not necessarily mean it is for children.

 





30 Day Movie Challenge: Day 29: First movie you ever remember watching

15 07 2011

I don’t remember what the first movie I ever watched was.  I think it was probably some animated thing, but I don’t remember what exactly it was nor what was happening.  I do however, remember watching Independence Day, and it was the first film I ever saw in theatres.  Not exactly the best movie for an 8-year old to see but oh well.





30 Day Movie Challenge: Day 28: Movie with your favorite hero

14 07 2011

Had to look up AFI’s list of the top 100 movie heroes and Atticus Finch of To Kill a Mockingbird was at the top of the list, so I went with that.  Nothing much else to say about that aside from the fact that he’s awesome.

This seems fairly self-explanatory.  Nurse Ratched, from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.





30 Day Movie Challenge: Day 26: Movie you’re most embarrassed to say you like

11 07 2011

Quite frankly, I’m getting kinda tired of posting these movie clips but I think it’s partly because I don’t have much to say or what I do have to say isn’t all that interesting.

So.

Let’s cut it short today.  I’m embarrassed to like New York Minute, not only because it’s a terrible movie with a stupid plot and that has the Olsen twins being super girly who both find cute guys in the span of one day, but also… actually, that about sums it up.

 





30 Day Movie Challenge: Day 25: Movie with the most beautiful scenery

9 07 2011

Looking for nice scenery is something you — or at least I — don’t remember about days, months, years later.  Sure, I might think to myself, “Man, that movie was really good!  Oh, and the scenery was nice too.  So anyway…”

I thought of films like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Brokeback Mountain because I can picture them both having really great scenery, but I can’t actually remember anything specific from either film.  Then I remembered hearing that according to Tarsem, all the locations shot in his film The Fall were on location and weren’t digitally enhanced in any way, which I found really surprising and, if true, pretty amazing.  There are some fantastic color schemes in the film that look too amazing to be real, like the little town of blue houses, incredibly highlighted and bright against the background.

For all those who haven’t heard of the film, it’s a really great one.  Take my word for it.  Here’s the trailer:





30 Day Movie Challenge: Day 24: Movie with your favorite soundtrack

7 07 2011

Maybe I’m merely making assumptions about people, but I don’t think the average person who watches a film cares much about the soundtrack — I’m talking original soundtrack as opposed to a collection of songs that the producers shelled out to pay for — after watching a film.
