Sunshine Blogger Award Number Three

sunshine-award

Hello there, guys. It’s Markus (duh). What, who else did you expect… Art Garfunkel? So my buddy Keith (Keithlovesmovies) decided to nominate me for this here Sunshine Blogger Award. For anyone who might wonder what it is, the Sunshine Blogger Award is something you can nominate a blog for to give them some recognition/love. And wow, I haven’t seen one of these in quite some time. The last one I got was in… August, Jesus Christ. Anyhow, thank you Keither for giving me this little thing. But there’s more to it than just receiving the award, you have to do some stuff too.

Here are the rules:

  • 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

So now I shall answer the questions that Keith provided me. His questions will be bold/italic, and my answers will look normal. So here we go!

What do you like to do in your spare time? 
Watch movies, play video games, read, listen to music, play with my dog… pretty standard stuff, really.

What would like to do if you had more time? 
I don’t know. Stuff, I guess.

If you can only watch one movie or TV show the rest of your life, what would it be and why? 
Fuuuuuck. This is a really tough question. But for the sake of giving an okay answer to this question I’ll go with “Justified”, the FX action-drama series that ran from 2010 to 2015. It’s fun, tense, and just overall great.

What is your favorite TV show right now? 
In general or my favorite that is still airing? Because my overall favorite (of all time) is the previously mentioned “Justified”. As for one that is still airing… probably “Mr. Robot” or “Daredevil”.

What was your favorite movie of 2016? 
Keep in mind that I haven’t seen all of the movies from 2016, so my answer might be different in a few months. But as of writing this post, it’s “The Nice Guys”. It’s intriguing, well acted, badass, and really funny.

What was your least favorite movie of 2016? 
Again, haven’t seen everything from 2016. But of the movies I’ve seen it’s “Ratchet & Clank”. The video game movie that had the best chance of being good… and it turned out to be shit… I am legitimately sad about it, especially since I love the games so much.

What is your most anticipated movie of 2017? 
“Logan”. There’s a lot of awesome stuff coming out now in 2017, but “Logan” is definitely the one I’m looking forward to the most. Though I’m also not looking forward to it because I don’t wanna say goodbye to Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart as Wolverine and Professor X… I almost want to cry just thinking about it.

What is your least anticipated movie of 2017? 
Most movies in January and February (that are not the big Oscar movies). But if I had to point my finger at one specific movie… “Fifty shades Darker”. Fuck you, people. Fuck you for giving the first one a lot of money.

Any movie or TV guilty pleasures? 
“Batman and Robin” is one, because it’s fun to just quote the shitty puns in it. The first two “Transporter” movies also kind of count because they’re not really that great, but they are tons of fun to watch. Also, “Drive Angry” starring Nicolas Cage. It’s a ridiculous exploitation movie that stars Nicolas fucking Cage… how could I not love it?

What is your Best Picture winner at this year’s Oscars? 
I don’t know. Haven’tactually seen any of the “contenders”. Soooo… NEXT!

Do you still watch trailers? 
Yes. Not all the trailers that come out, but I do still watch trailers.

So… here are my nominees:

Another Sunshine Blogger Award!?

sunshineblogger

So the owner of https://dbmoviesblog.wordpress.com/ (go check that shit out, it’s pretty awesome) decided to nominate me for a Sunshine blogger award. Firstly, thank you so much, kind person. Secondly, that’s the second one I have gotten this month. So for some reason, people think I’m worth nominating for these things. Oh well, better get going with this before I start rambling too much.
Ze rules:

  1. Post the award nomination on your blog
  2. Thank the blogger who nominated you
  3. Answer 11 questions assigned to you
  4. Nominate 11 other bloggers for the Award
  5. Ask 11 questions to your nominees

So these are the kind person’s questions and my answers:

Name 3 movies, which had the biggest impact on you (your life)?
Hmmm, that’s an interesting question to think about. Uhm… Probably “Fight Club”, because it’s my favorite. “Star Wars” because motherfucking “Star Wars”.  And “Requiem for a Dream” because I’ve never been so traumatized by any movie ever (stay away from drugs, kids).

Movie that shocked you the most?
The aforementioned “Requiem for a Dream”. Seriously, it fucked me up pretty badly.

Favourite horror movie?
“Jaws”. Love that one so much.

“The Godfather” or “Goodfellas”? Why?
“The Godfather”, because I have not seen “Goodfellas”.

If there was a movie about your life, who would you select for a lead role?
Not that I’d ever want there to be a movie about my life, but if I had to choose someone to play me… Probably Tom Holland. We’re pretty close in age and he doesn’t look too different from me.

What movie you wish you’d never have watched (for any reason?)
“Jonah Hex”, good fucking god, it’s awful. When I was younger, I liked it. But when I was younger, I was also a huge idiot. Casting of Josh Brolin, great. Everything else, shit.

Any foreign-language movie you proud/glad you watched?
Probably “Pan’s Labyrinth”. A dark and masterful fairytale done by a master of amazing visuals.

Favourite song in a movie?
If by song you mean one with singing that’s been used in a scene, then I’d probably say “Where is My Mind” from the end of “Fight Club”.

Favourite music band/singer?
AC/DC. Anybody who remotely knows me is pretty aware of that by now.

Have you attended any film festivals? Did you like the experience? If not, which ones would you like to attend?
I have never been to any film festival in my entire life. But there’s one not too far from where I live every year, so maybe that one. Also, Cannes and TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival), because obviously obvious answer is obvious.

What movie(s) are you looking forward to seeing soon?
I’m really looking forward to possibly seeing “The Magnificent Seven” in theaters in a month. Mainly because I feel like there aren’t enough big budget westerns being made these days. Plus, it just looks fun.

So those were my answers to the questions given by the owner of that previously mentioned blog that I told you check out because of the person nominating me for this thing. So… let’s see who my nominess will be.

Favorite movie of 1997?

What’s the best christmas present you have ever received?

Coffee or tea?

Is there a song that always gets you emotional?

Favorite color?

Favorite space movie that is not in any way part of the “Star Wars” mythos?

If you could bring back any dead celebrity for a chat (or something), who would it be?

What canceled show would you want to see brought back from the dead?

Have a good one.

 

 

 

 

Sunshine Blogger Award

sunset-blogger-award

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?
Edward Norton.

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?

Favorite artist/band?

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.
