I Can Steal Things Too, JayCeeStolen from data JayCee... If you want to play, there are two rules: 1. You can put more answers in any question, like having a 9-way tie for favorite soundtrack, but you may not mention the same movie more than once. This includes, "I would say this, but since I used it already I will say this instead." That defeats the point of the game. 2. You have to answer in order, picking the best answer to each question as you come to it, no planning out which movie would go best in which space. That way people have to wonder if that's really what you wanted to put there or if it was just the best you had left when you got to that one. Rules clear? Alrighty then, here I go:
1. What was the last movie you watched on theaters? Avengers (second time) 2. What was the first movie you ever remember watching on theaters? some edition of Empire Strikes Back 3. Top 5 movies The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly; Raiders of the Lost Ark; Fight Club; The Royal Tenenbaums; The Graduate 4. Top 3 directors and their best/worst movies (dammit #3) David Fincher - Social Network (hard choice, there's a lot of good ones); The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (*cough* Oscar bait *cough*) Wes Anderson- Rushmore; The Darjeeling Limited Edgar Wright - Hot Fuzz (yes, over Scott Pilgrim and Shaun of the Dead); Paul (ok fine I haven't seen it, I bet it's actually good, but it can't be better than Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead, or Scott Pilgrim, so to me it's technically the worst, but not bad) 5. A favorite adapted movie Where the Wild Things Are (I don't care, I loved it) also, Watchmen 6. Your best experience on going to the movies Inception and Super 8 with Swift Staff of 2010 and 2011 respectfully, two amazing movies with two amazing groups of people that I got to work with the last two summers. 7. A guilty pleasure Out Cold (Zack Galifanakis before he was popular!) 8. An overrated movie Avatar, Gladiator, Casablanca (start preparing your rage comments) 9. An underrated movie Hudson Hawk (I'm just going to keep this because it's a great choice) 10. A movie that not many have heard of that you have seen: That's really good? 8 1/2 (I'm going off of people I know. This was a fantastic film and he was a fantastic director) That's really bad? If Not Us, Who? (Chicago Film Festival. Eh, not really worth watching, even for a grade; starred the German soldier-turned-movie-star from Inglourious Basterds) 11. A movie you watched mainly for an actor The Losers: for Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Chris Evans, and Idris Elba. Actually quite good. 12. Favorite actor and his best and worst films Of all time: for now it's Michael Fassbender best is Shame (once I see Prometheus I might change this); worst is 300 (that movie was awful) 13. Favorite actress and her best and worst films Saoirse Ronan (yes I chose a child actress, but she's awesome. Also she has the coolest fucking name ever. Best is a tie between Hanna/The Lovely Bones; worst is that City of Ember movie. 14. Your first VHS, DVD and Blu-Ray VHS, some Disney movie?. DVD, A Bug's Life. I have no Blu-Rays and never will (unless I get a PS3, but that's because Little Big Planet) 15. Favorite Disney movie (not PIXAR!) Lion King 16. A tearjerker Toy Story 3. I didn't cry, but it's the closest I can get to a tearjerker. I don't watch movies to cry. 17. A movie that you know its bad but you can't help but love it Daredevil (Don't care, I like it) 18. Favorite Movie Soundtrack Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World (I technically haven't used it yet!) 19. Favorite quote from a movie Joe: "You see, I understand you men were just playin' around, but the mule, he just doesn't get it. Course, if you were to all apologize..." [Men Laugh] Joe: "I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughing. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it." A Fistful of Dollars 20. A movie that was better than the book The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo 21. Movie that you loved but the book was still better Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy 22. First adult film you watched (thematically speaking not R-rated) Temple of Doom or Jaws. 23. A kids movie you always watch The Incredibles 24. Favorite Science Fiction movie Blade Runner 25.

Yesterday, on the Dresden Codak LivestreamAaron was doing his X-Men redesigns, and was discussing the powers and roles of each team member. We got to Jean, who's first mutation stage involved her dying and being reborn in a fiery explosion. Which leads to this conversation: dresdencodak: Phoenix's power is just to not die
