I’ve had this blog for a while now and I’ve never done a “get to know me post”. I’ve thought long and hard about this and have come to the conclusion: “Naaa, I’m a bit too odd for this crack” (crack, being slang for stuff, not the other sort of crack). “My complete space cadet-ness could leave everyone very bewildered. I’m going to need to think up, a less direct approach. If I’m to make a friendly and insightful post.” So, that’s exactly what I did.
The best way to “indirectly” get to know someone, is through what they love. An even better way, is through what they wouldn’t normally admit, about what they love. Since my anime confessions, could quite possibly start war world 3 (I’ve been on the forums, it’s very scary). I think it’s a lot safer for us all, if I make this confession about my love of film.
I’m not sure if this idea is genius or Glob awful. But either way, let’s begin my film confessions:
I love watching horror in the dark. But sometimes I get a little too afraid and have to turn the lights back on and check all the hiding places, in the house for evil things/monsters. I wish this was a joke, but it’s not. It sounds so silly, but sometimes horrors really know how to scare the plop out of you. Add in the fact, I live in the middle of nowhere, in an old creaky house and one’s imagination can run away with itself.
I don’t think Rebel Wilson is funny. I cringe every time I’m forced to watch something she’s in.
I have an appreciation for all types of animation, not just anime.
I love the works of Tim Burton. He’s actually my favourite Director.
I enjoy watching really sad but meaningful movies, usually ones based on true stories or human rights abuse. I’m not sure how to explain this. I think it’s the educational and true human nature aspects, that appeal most to me.
I’ve watched more old cowboy films, then I care to admit. I don’t actually enjoy them. I just like watching them with my father and he really enjoys these films. Which takes me to my next confession.
There’s a huge place in my heart for ould boy films (movies the older gentleman enjoys).
I love dinosaurs, but can’t stand Jurassic Park. My hatred of those films, cannot be described in words.
I really like musicals and yes, I sing along.
My evil superpower, is being able to pick holes in any plot, find editing and film errors and point out scientific inaccuracies. I can pretty much ruin any film on someone, no matter how much they love it. Luckily, I’m not an a-hole and I only use this power when cornered, by that one person that won’t quit and doesn’t take “I don’t like the film”, for an answer (we all know one).
I’m a huge fan of stop motion and puppets. I also love watching how stop motions are made. I’m fascinated by it.
Every time I see something dead on the road, the song from Watership Down comes into my head. If it’s really sad, I might also end up singing it.
I really like Will Ferrell, especially in Elf. I know he’s a bit silly and all his characters are essentially the same. But, you have to admit he puts a hell of a lot of effort and energy into playing the fool.
I laugh at the most inappropriate things in horror films. The list would be endless, but at the top of this list is, zombie deaths, demon attacks and people trying to fight ghosts.
The jump scare gets me every time and not just a little. I pretty much jump out of my skin, even if I see it coming.
I thoroughly enjoy watching bad or low-budget zombie movies.
The Muppet Christmas Carol, is my favourite Xmas movie. (I also really like the book of the original story)
Sometimes I just want to watch something weird. There’s times when I get extremely bored with film and the only thing I find stimulating, is weird and experimental film.
Hope you enjoyed my film confessions and hopefully you don’t think I’m a complete Gobshite. If you’re brave enough, I’d love to hear your film confessions in the comments.
Thanks for reading.
