You think that I have been saying I have finished writing my new egg.  

Mmm. imadra_blue tagged me for the DVD meme because I am 'cute and need to learn to live with that'. I have actually been called cute a lot, despite the massive physical evidence to the contrary. I now realise that this is a kind way of reminding me that I am as lightweight as... a boxer who is not Muhammad Ali and that I have never thought or said anything truly worthy or deep that wasn't already thought -- and written -- by someone else. *winks* I'm like that king dude, who 'never said a stupid thing and never did a wise one'. Except I do say stupid things. It is what you could call my forte.

However, I am reconciled to my cute fate and I thinking of elevating it to a geek form. *tips hat to pen_and_umbra * Shall make new t-shirts. My other geek-worthy t-shirt-portrayed trait was in asking annoying questions on a basically continous basis, mostly when TVs are playing. Or do they play? Is that the right verb?

Anyway, this is a singularly inappropriate meme for me, because I've bought one DVD in my whole existence. *is obvious in not having read meme. Will wing it in manner of every English essay she's ever written.*

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

DVD: Two plus one boxset of seven. VIDEO: Eh, twenty? I wasn't allowed by the Aged Parents, Mk 1 and 2, to buy them until I was fifteen.

2. The last film I bought:

Cruel Intentions. This is the aforementioned 'one'.

3. The last film I watched:

Life as a House.

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

May I say first I dislike film as a medium and think acting is quite despicable?

1. Life as a House. I like unhappy endings.

2. Anna and the King. I like unhappy endings.

3. Shakespeare in Love. I like unhappy endings.

4. William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. I like unhappy endings.

5. BBC's Pride and Prejudice. Well, I'm sure it was unhappy for Miss Bingley, gill love her.

5. Which five people are you passing the baton onto? And why?

Because they haven't yet? Because I can?

HAVE '... and then he ate my boy entrancers'. *gloats*

Heh, totally agree with you there. I have to be dragged kicking and screaming to the cinema, and throw a sulk every time someone wants to get a DVD out.

Does Shakespeare in Love have a sad ending? Did I miss out on something horrid happening to that Paltrow woman?

kxx

I don't have to be dragged, per se, but the bloody lack of characterisation and depth in all but a few cases HURTS ME.

Yeah! Viola married Lord Wessex and Will was sad and Voila buggered off to America and drowned, I think. *cheers ambiguity*

Yay! My second tag today: I just posted fic earlier, so I'll be doing the meme in a day or so, okay? But I take being tagged v. seriously.

Life As A House? Sounds amazing, and I'll seek it out. The sort of film I'd love to make.

Shakespeare in Love was plagiarised from an ancient book called No Bed for Bacon. Little known fact. Nothing to do with Hamlet or Omelet.

You like unhappy endings, but you ain't going to get one from me refusing! :D Film is an amazing medium. But books are it, aren't they?

*big hugs*

^_^xxx

*grins* You don't have to, but cool. And am on way to reading!!

I reckon you would. It's got a hint of slash; is about a man who packs in his job and decides he's going to build his dream-house, enlisting the help of his estranged, drug-addicted teenage son. Moving stuff, not your average American stupido film. Oh, and I won't say more, but the SHOWER SCENE IS HOOOOOT.

Hee. Yes, I agree. Films are cheating, really, and I can never get into that 'world' so easily as I do with books. The bad bits are too easy to see. *sighs*

Wow, we are prolly totally opposites, because unhappy endings terrify me. xD

I still love your icon though.

Oh, I loves 'em so, preciousss! Are we to be forever parted on this point? *is sad* No matter. I've been hooked since Beth [CENSORED] in Little Women!

Permission to snaffle.

Fic in next week or two, btw. :)

I LOVE LIFE AS A HOUSE!!!
May I put of my response, however, until I am at home and unpack all my DVDs?

IT ROCKS.

Of course! There's no time limit. xD

Meep!

May I say first I dislike film as a medium

I like films. But then again, I do art so I like seeing things visual.

:)
