We’re back with a collab 😀 This time we’re doing the first half of the 50 movie tag questions!
1. How often do you watch a movie?
M: probably 3-4 times a week. It really depends on the movies and if I’m really busy that week though.
S: Once or twice a week, it mostly depends on how much time I have and how tired I’m after a long workday.
2. What movie genre are you particularly fond of?
M: Romcoms! And Fantasy. Those two…well, three together are just perfect.
S: Fantasy, sci-fi and action 😀 and also once in a while a nature documentary.
3. What was the last move that you’ve watched and liked?
M: I just saw Love, Rosie again and I really love that movie.. But I’ve already seen that one before.. If I’m not mistaken, the last movie I saw for the first time and really liked was A Cinderella Story: If the Shoe Fits. Loved it!
S: A dog’s purpose: it was gorgeous and made me cry for like five times or so. But it was really great to watch! I definitely recommend it, but only watch if you have a pet with you for hugs XD
4. What was the last movie that you’ve watched and hated?
M: If I don’t like a movie, I won’t watch until the end. Or even if I don’t like the summary I just won’t watch it. But if I have to choose, probably a movie about the World ending…again.
S: Suicide Squad, never have I felt more belied by a trailer…
5. What is your most favorite movie of all time?
M: Really? I have to choose???? Now at this moment it would probably be the first Harry Potter. I can watch it over and over again and it still won’t bore me.
S: …like, that’s nearly impossible to say, but I’ll go with Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. Most likely my most watched movie and I still know all the songs by heart.
M @S: OR THE LION KING!!!! 😀
6. Your most favorite guilty pleasure movie?
M: Shangai Knight and Shangai Noon. Both with Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson, two of my favorite actors. Hilarious movies!
S: A little movie named Dreamcatcher, based on the book with the same name by Stephen King. It’s bad, honestly really bad but at the same time I find it so funny, touching and a great watch for a lazy day.
7. What movie/movies have you watched a million times already?
M: HARRY POTTER!!!!
S: Spirit ofcourse and also a lot of Disney films like Pocahontas, Lion King, Dinosaur, …

M: Nope, toooooo crowded!
S: What Margo said, patience won’t hurt, a crowd will XD
9. Do you use Fandango or do you pre-book movie tickets?
M: I pre-book sometimes. Just to make sure we have our seats.
S:Sometimes, but usually I wait untill the movie has been out for a few weeks.
10. Cinema, Blu-ray, or download?
M: I’m a big downloader but I do like a simple old DVD every once in a while. And of course, nothing can compare with watching a movie in the cinema!
S: Download and good old DVD. And let’s go to the cinema so I can get popcorn 😛
11. How often do you go to a cinema to wach a movie?
M: Once every 3-4 months?

16. Are you particular with movie scores, soundtracks and musics?
M: I LOVE movie soundtracks and I always try to find the scores I really would like to play someday.
S: Same!! Half the music on my phone is movie soundtracks!
17. What movie soundtrack can be found on your Ipod?
M: Pirates of the Carribean (all of them) and Burlesque are the two complete soundtracks that can be found on my Ipod. Further on we have Great movie themes and a few other soundtracks like the ending title of We bought a Zoo (Hoppípolla by Sigur Rós)
S: Lots of disney soundtracks, PotC, LotR, Black Beauty, should I go on? 😛
18. Have you ever watched a movie alone in a cinema?
M: Without any friends or family, yes. Without anyone, nope.
S: Um, don’t think so. I prefer to go to a cinema with friends or family 🙂
19. Is there an movie that has changed your perspective in life?
M: les intouchables. It’s a real eye opener for everyone. It’s full of life lessons and a really great movie for those who are still learning.
S: And again, Spirit. It learned me to never give up.
20. Your favorite comic book movie?
M: Though one! Spider-man was definitely on number 1 a few years ago but now I’m gonna go with Deadpool!
S: Spiderman!!! (the Raimi movies), but also the Avengers and Deadpool hh, look I just like all of them okay? XD
21. DC or Marvel movies?
M: I like Marvel over DC if it comes to movies. But DC over Marvel every day when it’s about series.Without a doubt!
S: Marvel, althought DC is slowly growing on me.
M@S: I’m to blame for that XD
22. What are the movies in te top 10 in IMDb that you have watched?
M: The Dark Knight, 12 Angry Men, Shindler’s List, Pulp Fiction, LOTR: The Return of the King & Fight Club and actually, LOTR: Fellowship of the Ring too because it has the same score as te ones on number 9 and 10
S: The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring and I believe I’ve seen The Dark Knight when I was younger.
23. Do you read movie critic reviews before watching a fim?
M: Sometimes, yeah. But I don’t let that cloud my judgement.
S: Quite often actually, usually if Chris Stuckmann (https://www.youtube.com/user/ChrisStuckmann/featured ) says it’s a good movie, I’ll agree 😛
24. What is the best movie adapted from a book?
M: Oh this is a hard one.. I agree with Shannona on this one but to choose the best one.. I have honestly no idea.
S: Umm I’m doubting between Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. Both are great.
25. Do you watch the movie before reading the book or vice versa?
M: Yes I do. I saw The Golden Compass before I read the books but I mostly read the books before watching the movies.
S: Sometimes but often the movie doesn’t live up to the book (in my opinion). A vice versa example is Dreamcatcher, I’ve watched and liked the movie and now I’m reading the book.
