This is ridiculously late, but here's my entry into Katy's Alphabet Meme.
Anticipating Movie of 2014
Nolan + that amazing cast = must see.
Book Adaptation I'd Love To See
City of Glass by Paul Auster
The postmodern spin on a noir would be very interesting, but possibly too difficult to bring to the big screen.
Celebrity I'd Most Like To Meet
Philip Seymour Hoffman
I know it will never happen, but he's been on my mind for the past day and a half. RIP, sir.
Marion Cotillard is even doing a film with them. Why hasn't this happened yet?
I know it's an obvious choice coming from me, but Casablanca would be even more so.
I grew up with them, and every movie delivers, unlike the Bond series.
It's a broad category, but I try to watch a little bit of everything. (Shot from A Short Film About Love.)
If it's on TV, I'm watching at least some of it.
Discovering Bergman and Kieslowski with The Seventh Seal (above) and the Three Colors trilogy, respectively. Film changed for me with those movies.
A modern rom-com that's just too sweet and charming to ignore. I love it.
A must-watch for anyone who loves movies. It's so much fun!
Midnight in Paris (above). Before Sunset. Three Colors: Blue. The Lovers on the Bridge. 'Nuff said.
Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein were fantastic on the big screen, though some people came in after the first film and only watched the sequel.
Digging into Bergman was one way to get me on Netflix.
Yes, I watched it six times in theaters (in high school). Moving on...
The energy of a theater is far more enjoyable than a small screen at home.
Quote that Inspires Me
The idea behind this quote, that every life matters and has its own essential course, is very inspirational to me.
Except for films like The Maltese Falcon (above), The Thing and The Departed.
I don't really eat when I watch films.
The Sixth Sense and The Usual Suspects notwithstanding, the end of Nolan's film baffled me. Simple enough, but I didn't see it coming.
It's my favorite time of the year, as I love following the Oscar race.
I'm sorry, but it was sooo bad.
Seeing this at the age of 11 was definitely an eye-opening experience.
I listen to song contenders every week for my ballots, and I really like discovering new ones that originated in films.
This was so dull that I fell asleep in the theater, which I never do. I did finish it then, but I've never bothered to go back to see what I missed.
