Tagged, I'm it! Fun Joel started this scribosphere meme and Shawna handed it along to me. Here goes:
ONE (1) earliest film-related memory:
Drive-in double feature of BUGSY MALONE and THE BAD NEWS BEARS.
TWO (2) favorite lines from movies:
"Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night."
ALL ABOUT EVE
"Wallace Beery. Wrestling picture. What do you need, a roadmap?"
THREE (3) jobs you'd do if you could not work in the "biz":
(I'm including theater in biz, and excluding it here)
Could I be any more of a girlgeek?
FOUR (4) jobs you actually have held outside the industry:
Concessionaire at art house movie theater (I guess this is a little industry-related)
Drama teacher (um, this too)
Campus recycling center serf (hard, stinky work. Left the next quarter to work the multimedia desk at the liberry)
THREE (3) book authors I like:
George R. R. Martin
TWO (2) movies you'd like to remake or properties you'd like to adapt:
SO PROUDLY WE HAIL! - Little known 1943 movie about WWII combat nurses in the Pacific, starring Claudette Colbert, Paulette Goddard, and Veronica Lake in the performance of her career. Harrowing and gritty, and a welcome reminder that the Greatest Generation wasn't all guys.
"Doom Patrol" - Grant Morrison's run of this comic book is straight-up absurdy stuff. Superheroes in need of thorazine and a hug. Dark, funny, and probably completely unfilmable.
ONE (1) screenwriter you think is underrated:
Paul Weitz. I just watched IN GOOD COMPANY. This and ABOUT A BOY are about as poignant, funny, and authentic dramas as I've seen, featuring shaded, complex portraits of men trying to become more themselves.
THREE (3) people I'm tagging to answer this meme next:
Bill, Ras, and Shawn.
