Yet Another Award

I don't mean to make it sound as if I am growing bored of receiving these Liebster nominations, nor is my intention to act pompous by saying that. It's just a title, nothing to dissect. Anyway, you all know the rules for this Liebster thing, if you've read my previous award-tag post (An Unexpected Delight). That being said, I'll just get right into it. But wait! I've already shared eleven things about myself, and within the past week I might add. I've also nominated seven people for this award, as well as asked eleven dastardly questions. Therefore, this post will merely answer the eleven questions asked by AmateurReviews, who nominated me for the Liebster. Here we go.

Amateur Reviews' Questions:

1. Favourite James Bond and film?
Sean Connery, unquestionably, is the ideal James Bond. As for the film, I'm not especially fond of those spy-flicks. If I had to choose, I would have to say the one with Halle Berry and Pierce Brosnan on account of its amusingly cheesy quality.

2. What film has the best sound track ever?
This one is difficult. I could go traditional, and say John Williams' score for Star Wars. Or I could go modern, and say the soundtrack for Kick-Ass was exceptional. For this, however, I must say that the best sound track has to be Finding Nemo. I just beam when I hear it.

3. If you could cast one leading lady and one leading man who would they be?
Since this isn't very specific, I'll go ahead and cast the two for an adorable romantic-comedy. For some reason, I'm leaning towards Michelle Pfeiffer and Jack Nicholson. I love them both, and think they would be great together all the same.

4. Which is the film you secretly love, but feel you should hate?
There are plenty of those, starting with Sex and the City. But I want to surprise you and say...Old Dogs. It is so painfully corny, in addition to the appearance of Robin Williams and waxy, twenty-first century John Travolta, yet I enjoy it very much. Disney magic.

5. If you had the casting vote at the last Academy Awards, which film would you have win best picture?
The Artist. Thankfully, my vote wasn't needed.

6. Who would you choose to play you in a biopic of your life?
Kate Winslet.

7. What is your favorite movie scene of all time?
The first that comes to mind is the iconic dance sequence in Pulp Fiction.

8. In your opinion, who is the most overrated director ever?
Robert Altman, considering all of his films are excruciatingly dull. Though, since he is not all that recognizable, I would say Steven Spielberg because everyone uses him as the ideal example. "Well, that movie was good, but it was no Spielberg picture."

9. Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings?
Lord of the Rings.

10. If you could only ever watch comedies or action films for the rest of your life which would it be?
Comedies, no question.

11. What was the last movie that made you cry?
Toy Story 3, when the toys were about to be burned with garbage. It gets me every time.

I must say, those were a challenging set of questions. The first few took more than a moment to answer, and even now I'm uncertain. Bravo, AmateurReviews. I love my mind to be stimulated. See? Very short post, as promised.
