I didn’t even know I got tagged to do the DVD meme by badly dubbed boy until Leah told me last night. So here goes.
Total number of films I own on DVD/video: At last count a few minutes ago, 72. This doesn’t include Leah’s own extensive collection though.
The last film I bought: Lost In Translation. Why didn’t Bill Murray win the Oscar for his role? Is there no justice in this world?
The last film I watched: That’s easy one. Star Wars Episode III. Bad acting but great movie.
Five films that I watch a lot or that mean a lot to me (in no particular order):
Contact: Probably the best Sci-Fi movie I’ve seen. Forgetting the possibility or impossibility of alien contact, the deeper question is whether you will volunteer to go or not despite the risk? Me? Definitely a go.
Forrest Gump: Tom Hank may not be the best actor ever, but his portray of Forrest Gump was pretty spot on. But it was the story that made this movie works. There isn’t another movie (that I know of) that digests recent American history that well.
Top Gun: I know it is cheesy and it is Tom Cruise. But when you were a bored teenager spending a long summer school break in Hong Kong without much spare money to spend, Top Gun was great movie to pass time!
The Original Star Wars Trilogy: Enough said.
Band of Brothers: I know this is not a film but since we are talking just DVDs… Easily the best TV mini-series by a long margin. The camaraderie of the paratroopers and the scarifies they made for the greater good can made even a grown man cries.
And to pass this on…
