The Bedtime Movie Tag
Ivy has tagged me! Thank you so much, Ivy; I love tags:)
1.) A movie that kept you up all night
Hmm. This is a toughie, 'cause there's more later about movies that made me scared and thus kept me up…oh, I know! The Sound of Music.
:) This marvelous piece of cinema has kept me and my family up past midnight almost every New Year's Eve that I can remember. It's tradition;) Along with opening stockings while watching, instead of at Christmas. (Yes, you may now all be jealous of our awesome New Year's habits.)
2.) A movie that made you scared to sleep
Little Dorrit. *shudders* Just…no. Rigaud and Ms. Monotone (I don't remember her name) FREAKED THE EVERLIVIN' DAYLIGHTS OUT OF ME.
I don't really like Little Dorrit.
3.) A movie that made you go to sleep
I'm usually pretty good about keeping awake during movies, actually…but Fiddler on the Roof MIGHT have seen me nodding off the first time I watched it.
To be fair, I was, like, six. So I had a slightly shorter attention span, particularly if anything about a movie remotely depressed me.
4.) A movie that left you tossing and turning all night in anticipation of its release
There haven't been very many, but lately I have found my thoughts turning to 2017 Beauty and the Beast of an evening.
I just can't decide if I can make peace with the casting of Belle. I have nothing whatever against Emma Watson, but I've never seen her in anything; I only know some of the movies in which she has acted, and, I mean…I don't know. I really shouldn't judge her aptitude for portraying Belle simply by hearsay and my own conjecture, but…I can't help but wish they'd cast someone who looks a little bit more like Belle. Say, Alexis Bledel or Amelia Warner (Amelia Warner might be a bit too old, though). But then again, Lily James probably wouldn't have been the first person to pop into my head for the role of Cinderella, and look how that turned out;)
5.) A movie that has your dream boyfriend/girlfriend ship of two separate movies
Like Ivy, I'm a wittle confuzzed.
6.) A movie that would be your worst nightmare to live in
Um…I dunno…maybe Mad Max: Fury Road? I haven't seen it, but I saw the trailer, and I think that basically speaks for itself.
I remember the trailer exceedingly depressing me.
7.) A movie that reminds you of nighttime
Maybe The Phantom of the Opera? It's got a lot of nocturnal musicality about it…hehe;)
I guess it's supposed to remind you of nighttime. The whole catacombs-of-an-opera-house-as-a-location thing really helps with that, don't it?
8.) A movie that has a nightmarish cliffhanger
The Desolation of Smaug isn't exactly prime cuddle material.
But I was kind of done with that movie by that time, anyway, so…I didn't really care;P I actually liked the third installment the best of the Hobbit movies.
9.) A movie you actually dreamed about
Isn't it so fun when you dream about movies? Most of the time, that is? I've had dreams with several movie characters in it…The Fellowship of the Ring…Anastasia…but one really interesting dream I had involved North and South (2004).
I dreamed up an extra scene where Margaret is crying about something, Mr. Thornton is comforting her, and then is asking her to 'reconsider.' It was a very touching
death scene, I cried when I wrote it little moment, if I do say so myself. (I later realized that it didn't really fit with their relationship, since he would never have brought himself to petition her again until, well, the train scene, and she was not the kind of girl to be crying onto his shoulder about her own troubles. The reconsidering thing actually would have worked better with Anne and Gil or Laurie and Jo, I think.)
10.) A movie monster you would not want to find under your bed
*shivers* Ew. I'll go with Shelob.
Well, that was fun:D
Now, as to tagging…I nominate everybody who's reading this. That way, if you want to fill out the answers, you've been officially tagged, and if you don't want to, there's no pressure. (Tagging people stresses me. I don't know why. I think it's because I always forget someone, or I feel like I should tag everybody, which makes it difficult for some other people to tag people, so…yeah.)
