Welcome one, welcome all, today on Tag Thursday I bring you a film-related tag for once. I saw it recently on Liz’s blog and have been meaning to do it ever since so here goes nothing…
What is your all-time favourite film?
I have too many – Thor, The Avengers, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Shaun of the Dead, The Proposal, Legally Blonde, Leap Year, Bridget Jones’ Diary, Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean, Pride and Prejudice (2005), Life of Brian, Four Lions, Stardust… there are many.
What is your favourite scene from that film?
From all of the above? Haha, only kidding, I wouldn’t put anyone through reading that much. For the sake of not being too repetitive in this post, I’ll pick Avengers for the purposes of this question and say I love the scene in Stuttgart where Loki terrorises some innocent party goers, Captain America tries to step in, and then Iron Man appears to the tune of ‘Shoot to Kill’ and calls him “reindeer games”. One of the best entrances ever.
Who is your favourite actor and actress?
Favourite actor is (this is no surprise to anyone) Tom Hiddleston. I also seem to enjoy films with Colin Firth or James McAvoy. As for favourite actress, I have a few I enjoy watching, including Anne Hathaway, Emma Watson, Keira Knightley. I think that’s enough for now, I won’t dig out the full list.
What was the first film you saw in the cinema?
I have vivid memories of going to see the first couple of Harry Potter films on a primary school trip, so it would be Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
I watch films but I am by no means a film connoisseur so I find this question trickier than it should be. My favourite director from the various who have taken on the Harry Potter films has been Alfonso Cuáron. I quite enjoy Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Favourite guilty pleasure film?
Leap Year, definitely Leap Year. It is so gloriously predictable and shit but I adore it, it never fails to make me smile.
