A meme and stuff

kassto tagged me, so here it is.

1) Total number of films I own on DVD/video:

Not many, on DVD - the three Matrix movies, the three LOTR extended versions, Buffy S1-S7, Angel S1-S5, Firefly, Farscape S2-S4, the three original Star Wars movies, and Thunderbirds: The Movie (the original); on VHS - Galaxy Quest, The Dish, Shooting Fish, Star Trek: First Contact, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Last Crusade, various James Bond movies.

2) The last film I bought:

Have no idea. Did just purchase the DVD box set of S1 Millenium for J's birthday, so I'll enjoy that as well.

3) The last film I watched:

ETA - Make that Serenity (how could I forget that Big Damn Movie!) - thanks for reminding me kassto. Probably Troy, which is why I don't go to movies much anymore - waste of time mostly.

4) Five films that I watch a lot or that mean a lot to me:

Star Wars - saw it in January 1978, it was this huge fantastic story that just grabbed me and didn't let go. My sci-fi love was complete.

A Clockwork Orange - never could hear Singing in the Rain again without shuddering.

The Crying Game - was worth all the hype.

In the Name of the Father - makes me angry thinking about it even now.

The Crucible - the late, great Arthur Miller, what a superb play/movie about McCarthyism.

Took me years to work out my sci-fi love, but then I realised I grew up on a TV menu of Dr Who, Land of the Giants, Lost in Space, Red Dwarf, Blake's Seven, Time Tunnel etc etc, so it wasn't so hard to understand after all ...

5) Seeing as I'm late to the party also and probably everyone on my little flist has done it already anyway, no tagging from me.

caraway_ - this picture and story is for PG, Chanel will sing again!

Oh, the Crying Game. Fantastic -- I would have put it on my list if I'd thought of it.

Clockwork Orange -- it has crossed my mind the similarity between Alex's conditioning in this film, and Spike's chip.
But Spike was changing anyway (well I think he was, and he was always different anyway), and Alex didn't change, which was such a great statement.
