I thought the days of chain mail were over (I’m finally rid of that girl with no eyes at the end of my bed), but I’m happily surprised to be part of a new, special one that’s currently going on in the WordPress cinephile community. Thank you so much to LazySundayMovies, GhezalMoviePlus and FilmMusicCentral for thinking of me when doing this thing. I feel very special and honoured I even appeared in your minds when you did this thing. Now away with the cheesiness and let’s continue to my moment to shine.

Diego’s lovely questions:
- If you could only watch one movie for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Probably Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. I’ve already seen it more than I can count and I even still adored it after writing an essay about it for university, which is probably the #1 indication it can never get ruined for me. Plus, the soundtrack is a+.
2. If a film was made about your life story, who would you cast to play yourself?
If Hayley Atwell was to ever sign on to my biopic, I can die a happy girl.
3. First movie you remember watching?
I think Beauty and the Beast is one of the first films I remember seeing. We had it on VHS and I probably watched it at least once a week.
4. Favourite movie genre and favourite movie quote?
Hard. I can say comedy but I’m referring to that 5% of comedies that is actually good. I also really love historical dramas.
5. I normally hate watching movies before 2000’s (except some classics). Recommend a movie that might change my mind.
If you want to laugh: Robin Hood – Men in Tights (1993). Made by the almighty Mel Brooks and one of my favourite films to this date. So insanely stupid and self aware that you can’t help but laugh. Some Like It Hot (1959) is also a good watch, as it is the original White Chicks. If you don’t want to laugh: 12 Angry Men (1957) is really brilliant. I didn’t think a film from the fifties could be as good as that one honestly is.
6. Favourite TV show at the moment?
I’m liking a lot of shows because I watch literally everything. Game of Thrones is great, just like Outlander and Daredevil. Still I think The Office and Parks & Rec are my faves of all time.
7. Go-to weapon in a zombie apocalypse?
I’ve always wanted to be awesome at archery but I think when it comes to zombies I’d better be off with a katana.
8. Would you rather lose both arms or both legs?
Both legs. Don’t think I’ve ran in 4 years.
9. If you could have one power, what would it be?
I’m a shapeshifter type of gal. Or time manipulation, unlimited naps would be cool.
10. When did you start blogging and why?
I started about 2 months ago, so I’m a newbie. I started this whole thing because I love film, I love writing articles and I most of all love complaining. I’ve been wanting to do something with film reviews for quite some time, but I never really got round to really focus on making a blog. UNTIL NOW.
11. What do you do when you’re not in front of a keyboard?
I work part time in a shop that sells books, magazines, greeting cards, cigarettes, lottery tickets and all that stuff. I also volunteer at the local music venue and a local theater several times a month. Finally, I go to the cinema like at least twice a week. The rest of my free time is, yes, in front of a keyboard.
Ghezal’s dope questions:
- Have you ever snuck into a movie at the theatres and if so, how many is your record?
I honestly have never, because 1. I’m too much of a pissbaby to dare something like that and 2. I have an unlimited cinema card so I can go see films for free anyway.
2. If you could have dinner with any movie character, who would you pick and why?
I feel like Monsieur Gustave H. from The Grand Budapest Hotel would have a great taste in dinner and have a lot of nice stories to tell. Besides, I might learn a bit of proper etiquette from him.
Then again if I wanted to just casually hang with some crappy junk food then I’d probably pick Sam Wilson aka Falcon from the MCU. He’s a bro.
3. If you could be a character in any movie universe, who would you pick and why?
I have a really really really big place in my heart for Peggy Carter from the MCU. I think I’d have a good life if I got to feel as empowered as she does every day.
4. What are your Top 5 favourite TV shows of all-time?
- The Office
- Pushing Daisies
- Parks & Recreation
- Band of Brothers (the odd one out, but yeah)
5. Are there any actors/actresses you strive to watch, no matter what the movie/project?
I used to but I kind of stopped doing that after my obsession with Lee Pace made me watch Marmaduke and Twlight – Breaking Dawn.
6. Who is your dream James Bond?
I think Idris Elba would be so perfect. He’s a charming gentleman with the right amount of badass to make it amazing.
7. If you could turn any movie into a TV series, which movie would you pick?
A 40 minute episode each week of Deadpool’s mischief would be a wonderful thing.
8. What is your go-to fast food restaurant?
Okay so fast food really isn’t that big of a thing in the Netherlands, so none really? There is a nice pizzeria in town that we go to where we can’t decide where to go to or a nice coffee place when we want to grab a drink but I don’t think that comes very close.
9. Do you have an all-time favourite Romantic Comedy or Drama couple?
Jim and Pam from The Office are relationship goals forever.
10. Chris Evans, Hemsworth or Pine?
Can I go for option 4: Pratt?
(if not then Evans)
11. If you could make your own college course and teach it, what would the title of your course be?
I’d really like to teach a course about films recycling and referencing older or other films. I’d call it “The Deadpool Effect: How To Recycle Hollywood Without Really Trying.”
Bex’s cool questions:
- Favorite Star Wars film?
I’ve never been a Star Wars fan to be honest, but I loooooved The Force Awakens so I’m going to have to go for that one.
2. What is your favorite film soundtrack?
The Grand Budapest Hotel is deserving of the Oscar it got. Another stunning piece from Alexander Desplat and my number 1 since I heard it for the first time.
3. What is your favorite Disney film?
I can never choose between Beauty and the Beast and Tangled. BatB is my childhood classic favourite and Tangled still makes me weep manly tears at the age of 21 so it’s a dilemma.
4. What is the most recent film you saw in theaters?
I saw Bad Neighbours 2 last Friday but after seeing it I wish it wasn’t my most recently watched film.
5. What is the worst film you ever saw?
Usually I’m a strong woman who finishes every film but I could not make it through more than 10 minutes of The Last Airbender. An atrocity to the concept of film.
6. Who is your favorite actor/actress?
I don’t have an ultimate favourite but my list includes Hayley Atwell, Ryan Reynolds, Tom Hanks, Tom Hardy and Chris Pratt.
7. Could Tom Hiddleston pull off being James Bond? If not, who?
I love Tom but he wouldn’t be right for the Bond. He’s too sweet for it. He’s very sexy but not the kind of broody, womanizing sexy that James Bond is supposed to be. Idris Elba, he is your man.
8. What’s that one movie you could not live without?
The Grand Budapest Hotel always makes me laugh and cry and it made me appreciate cinematography like no other film ever has. It’s simply a completion to my life.
9. Favorite (and least favorite) movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
My favourite is currently tied between Captain America: Civil War and Guardians of the Galaxy. I haven’t seen Civil War enough yet to really make a decision. My least favourite is probably Age of Ultron. Whedon ruined many characters and relationships that were so wonderfully built up in the films before.
10. By the same token, favorite and least favorite movie set in the DC Universe?
My favourite is The Dark Knight (I don’t care guys it’s just so good) and my least favourite is Green Lantern. I love you Ryan, but no.
11. Batman meets Iron Man in a fair fight: who wins?
If it was a battle over who had the most parental issues then it’d be a tie, but Iron Man could kick Batman’s ass every day.
