Daniel Stephens recently launched a blog-a-thon on the Top 10 Films site, which I found interesting enough to join.
Shortly, it's about an imaginary ticket that would allow you to dive in to the fantastic worlds of your favorite films. So here it goes...
What character would I most like to be sat next to on a plane…
Becky Bloomwood from CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC, for sure. Come on, she is so loveable. I know we'd get along. Probably.
If not, I'd maybe not love the film as much as I do and wouldn't have to be ashamed of that anymore. It's a win-win situation.
What character would I most want to enjoy a passionate romance with?
TEAM EDWARD!... Ahm, or maybe not.
No, no - who else could a mature and sophisticated woman like me choose but....
Robbie-squeek from ATONEMENT, played by squeek-James-squeek-McAvoy-squeek?!
Just that... he wouldn't die. And neither would I.
If I were a cop who would I want as my partner?
If I absolutely had to be a cop, then my partner would be Axel Foley from BEVERLY HILLS COPS. Because to me, being a police officer sounds like a really depressing job. I just hope he wouldn't hit on me - that would have bad consequences.
What animated feature would I love to walk around in?
|Or let's say "swim" around in|
People who have been around this blog for a while may know that I'm a sucker for THE LITTLE MERMAID. It's my favorite animated feature of all time, and I must have seen it around a hundred times since I was little - it was also the first film (VHS) I ever owned.
What you might not know: I've been raised on a ship, I've lived on a boat or a ship most of my life (not anymore though) and even though I sometimes act like I hate(d) it - I love it. I'm deeply in love with the sea, yes, I could never live far away from it. And yes, I still sometimes dream of becoming a mermaid. Who doesn't?
What adventure based on earth would I most like to go on?
What a question! I'd join my childhood hero PIPPI LÅNGSTRUMP on all of her adventures, like searching for spunks, washing the floor with feet-brushes, buying candy for all of the children in the street and all those other awesome things she does.
What adventure based in an otherworldly, fantasy-based location would I most like to go on?
LOTR intrigues and fascinates me very much, but I have always, always dreamt of getting that letter from Hogwarts. So I'll stick with HARRY POTTER. I'm sure I'd be a superb witch... I guess the owl was... tied up with business... yeah. The letter's going to come. Some day... over the rainbow...
What movie gadget would I love to try out (or steal)?
Time machine. No matter from which film.
What film’s plot would I alter and how would I do it?
Funny you should mention this, because actually I saw a movie with great potential yesterday - SOMMER IN ORANGE - that had an awful end. It was quite realistic with a funny note all the time (it's about some German Bhagwan-followers who lived in the 1980's and the problems their children have to deal with, and how the outside world rejects them), until some time the producers must have thought "yeah, let's make an unrealistic happy-end now". Or something similar. Anyway, I was vastly disappointed.
What one film would I most want to be transported into, simply to be a part of that world?
Finally room for my LOTR-obsession. If Ursula won't turn me into a mermaid, and if neither a Hogwarts owl nor Pippi is going to knock on my door - I can always go and find the mysterious parallel middle-age-esque world of this epic novel and film.
Blog-a-thons are a wonderful invention, don't you think?
