joonscribble did this one with books, but I've modified it and done it with movies.

Ten movies you were utterly drawn into:
1. LOTR: The Fellowship of the Ring
2. King Arthur
3. Love Actually
4. Seabiscuit
5. Lady Hawk (I remember my Mum and I both crying out 'no!' at one point, so that's gotta say something)
6. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (I hadn't read any books at that time and so I didn't know the plot at all)
7. Mamma Mia!
8. The Princess Bride
9. The Prestige
10. Hidalgo

Nine movies that made you cry (or tear up):
1. A Walk to Remember
2. Jack
3. Charlotte's Web
4. The Polar Express (I was very hormonal that day)
5. LOTR: Return of the King (I started crying about halfway through and didn't stop until half an hour after I'd left the theatre)
6. Ordinary People
7. Homeward Bound
8. The Notebook
9. The Little Prince

Eight movies that left you wondering if you were missing the point:
1. Made in Heaven
2. Uncorked (thoroughly enjoyed it, had no idea what the point of it was)
3. The Singing Detective (ditto)
4. In Bruges
5. Hulk (Ang Lee)
6. Passchendaele
7. A Slipping Down Life
8. God is Great, I'm Not

Seven Foreign Language films that you loved:
1. Amélie
2. Le Survenant
3. The Motorcycle Diaries
4. Spirited Away
5. Bon Cop, Bad Cop (technically about a third in English, but whatever)
6. Les Choristes
7. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

Six fictional characters you wouldn't kick out of bed:
1. Tony Stark from Iron Man
2. Mal Reynolds from Serenity
3. James Bond from Casino Royale
4. Wolverine from X-Men
5. David Bouchard from Bon Cop, Bad Cop
6. Geoffrey Chaucer from A Knight's Tale (technically a non-fictional character, I guess, but I doubt the real Chaucer was that cool.)

Five heavy / weird / unusual movies that are worth a viewing:
1. Memento
2. Sliding Doors
3. Paris, Je t'aime
4. Across the Universe
5. The Very Thought of You

Four movies you know aren't great/deep, but you love anyway:
1. Newsies
2. The Holiday
3. Alfie (remake)
4. Star Wars: The Phantom Menace (I can't deny the love that is Liam Neeson and Ewan McGregor being all Jedi-y)

Three scenes from movies that make you glee:
1. The flying dragon scene from Spirited Away
2. 'Moses Supposes' number from Singing in the Rain
3. Mr. Knightley and Emma's proposal scene from Emma (1996)

Two genres that you watch the most:
1. Romances
2. Sci Fi/Fantasy

One trilogy/series of movies that didn't eventually disappoint you:
1. The Lord of the Rings
Current Mood: sleepysleepy
Current Music: What's the Buzz? - Jesus Christ Superstar

God, Ordinary People had me sniffling to an embarrassing degree.

I have a great love for In Bruges although I really can't tell you why or what the movie is even really going for. I think I just enjoyed watching something made by the man who wrote "The Pillowman."

There's a scene in Ordinary People where Timothy Hutton's character is talking about what it's like to be depressed (something about being down a dark hole and not being able to get out) and it was almost word for word how I had explained it myself to my mother. I was bawling.

I never finished In Bruges. As much as I love Colin Farrell and Ralph Fiennes, I eventually decided it wasn't going to get any more understandable and moved on.

All the random bits of In Bruges actually all do come together in the end, which is sort of the Marin McDonagh Special. But I wouldn't say the complete picture the pieces make was particularly astounding. I think I was just happy all the pieces were used.
