So the legitimately likable Liam (https://motionpictureblog.com/) threw a little Sunshine blogger award my way (for some reason). Well… Thank you, Liam! I appreciate it despite not knowing what you see in my blog (self-deprecation, ladies and gentlemen!). So I guess I should write out the rules for this thing. And by write out I mean copy and paste.
- Post the award on your blog
- Thank the person who nominated you
- Answer the 11 questions they set you
- Pick another 11 bloggers (and let them know they are nominated!)
- Give them 11 questions
And now I shall answers the questions given to me (and 10 other people) by Liam.
If you were stuck in a room for 48 hours and you were allowed to watch one film to pass the time, what would it be?
That is a really good question. While I do have a favorite movie, it’s not one I feel like I could watch several times in such quick succession like that. So I’m probably gonna pick the 1996 action movie “The Rock” for this thing, since it’s so much fun.
Who is your favourite actor?
Who is your favourite actress?
That is a damn good question, because I’ve never really given this one too much thought. But to give some form of answer I will say Julia Roberts, because we need to move on.
Which genre of film do you most dislike?
Probably musicals, I have a hard time getting into them. Except for maybe animated Disney stuff, those are fine.
If you could bring back one famous person from the dead for a coffee and a chat, who would it be?
Probably Patrick Swayze. I’ve been a fan of him for most of my life, and he seemed like a cool person, so I’d love to be able to meet him.
What are your personal goals/ambitions for the future of your blog?
Just go on and try to continue having fun with it. The positive feedback given by my followers has really helped me stick this out since it gives me so much motivation to continue doing this. But I really don’t have any actual goals with it, since this has always been a little hobby of mine.
What is the scariest film you have ever watched?
“Jack and Jill”. No, but seriously, it’s actually “Requiem For a Dream”. The intensity and horrific things going on in it just makes it so scary for me, despite not really being a horror movie.
Have you had anyone else write for your blog?
Nope. Hasn’t happened yet and I’m not really planning to let it happen. Maybe at some point in the future when I stop being such a grinch, but as for now… nope.
Who is your favourite superhero and why?
Spider-Man. I grew up watching the 1994 cartoon and the Sam Raimi movies, so he’s always been part of my life, and my love for the guy has only increased even more with his inclusion in “Captain America: Civil War”. But he’s just a likable character who is pretty easy to relate to when all is said and done.
If you could travel back in time and watch one older film in the cinema when it was released, what film would it be?
I love this question so much. Uhm… either “Jaws” or “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”. Both are classics and both would probably be pretty awesome to see in an older cinema.
Are there any films you think are really overrated?
I’m gonna get so much hate for this… But I think “Avengers” is a pretty overrated movie. It’s not bad, but it’s a bit too hyped and overrated. Also, “Avatar” and “The Dark Knight”. One of those a lot of people agree on that it is overrated, and the other one is legitimately great but maybe a little bit overrated. You figure out which is which.
And those were Liam’s questions for me (and 10 other people). So now I guess I’ll have to nominate 11 people for this, *sigh*… this takes a lot of effort, you guys.
So those are my victi- I mean, nominees. So here are my questions:
If you could eliminate one movie from this reality, which would it be?
Have you ever broken a bone?
What is your favorite movie of 2016 so far?
What book would you like to see get made into a movie/TV show?
Ever had a celebrity encounter? If so, who? (2 in 1, loophole!)
Batfleck or Baleman?
Favorite kind of pizza?
Favorite comedy series?
Why did you start blogging?
What song (lullabies and kid’s songs don’t count) do you know all the words to?
That took a good amount of time to do… holy shit. But it’s done, thank god. But I’d like to once again, for the last time, thank the lovingly listed lunatic Liam (https://motionpictureblog.com) for nominating me for this silly thing.
This has been Markus taking quite a bit of time out of his evening to write this thing.
Have a good one.
