I was recently tagged in the Liebster Award by my friend over at Jason’s Movie Blog. This is kind of like a movie tag where a blogger friend will have 11 questions and you create your own questions. I just recently tagged pretty much everyone I know in the Walt Disney Tag but I will at least answer his questions.

Favorite Movie of All Time?
Pixar’s Up. It’s a movie I could watch every day of my life and never tire of. I love how the relationship between Ellie and Karl continues throughout the whole movie. It reminds me that love continues on as long as we remember them. It’s a beautiful study of regret and grief and how to forgive yourself for the things that don’t work out in life. In my views a perfect film.
Favorite Movie Scene?
Breakfast at Tiffany’s the cab scene. To me the best writing in a movie I’ve ever seen:
“You know what’s wrong with you, Miss Whoever-you-are? You’re chicken, you’ve got no guts. You’re afraid to stick out your chin and say, “Okay, life’s a fact, people do fall in love, people do belong to each other, because that’s the only chance anybody’s got for real happiness.” You call yourself a free spirit, a “wild thing,” and you’re terrified somebody’s gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you’re already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it’s not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It’s wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself”
It’s a film that takes two characters who are walking contradictions. They are both lonely and extremely manic at the same time. They are both needy and aloof. This is what makes them interesting. The film is a reminder that even the screwiest of us can find salvation through love. This final scene is perfection. “No matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself”. Plus, the music, perfection.
Last Movie you saw in theaters?
Angry Birds. It wasn’t very good. Can read my review here.
If you had the chance to meet one actor or actress in real life….who would it be?
Might seem like an odd choice but I would pick Patricia Heaton because I admire how she has kept her Christian beliefs and stayed a working actress. That’s tough to do.
What was your favorite movie of 2015?
Inside Out and I like it more each time I see it. It has become my go-to movie and I find myself watching it every couple of weeks.
Star Wars or Star Trek? Star Wars. I’ve actually only seen 2 Star Trek things in my life. However, I am starting a new set of podcasts next Wednesday with my friend Tom Gunn looking at all the Star Trek films. Would love for you to join us https://plus.google.com/events/cgdut3p6ukimh52kk5s4n87ktfg?authkey=CJOWwqrA8sTpXA
That said Star Wars is awesome. I love the space opera and adventure and all the characters. I guess the prequels are kind of lame but still doesn’t tarnish the brand in my eyes.
When did you start blogging?
I started blogging 8 years ago over on my other blog http://smilingldsgirl.com
Why do you blog?
I don’t know. My life would be a lot lonelier if I didn’t blog and it feels cool to find other weirdos that like the same stuff I like. Also I enjoy writing and crafting persuasive essays that get my opinion across. I’ve seen the quality of my writing improve over the years which is cool.
If you could visit any movie world in real life, what would it be?
I think I would go to the world of Jane Austen because any magical place has evil and is actually quite fraught with peril. In Jane Austen’s books/movies everyone is polite and says nice things even if they don’t mean it. Worst thing that could really happen to you is you don’t get married and someone says something mean about your mother. Otherwise a lot of tea and talk. I could live with that. ps. Anyone else super excited about Love and Friendship coming out?
What do you collect? Physical copy of movies or digital downloads?
Physical Copy although I have over 500 digital movies in my vudu.com collection. Still I love special features and the HD quality of bluray. Here’s a video where I go over my Disney blurays.
What movie are you looking forward to seeing?
Highest up on my list is probably Moana, Rogue 1, Dr Strange and Kubo and the 2 Strings.
As far as my tags I really just feel like I tagged everyone this weekend so I will leave these great questions open to any of you that wants to answer them. Thanks for tagging me Jason. It was a lot of fun!

These are some fun answers! I didn’t know that Up was your fave film of all time! What was your fave film of all time before Up came out?
Patricia Heaton is a Christian?
Breakfast at Tiffanys and then Little Mermaid. Still probably my top 3.
Yes Patricia Heaton is very active Christian who gets a lot of flack in Hollywood for her beliefs but hasnt backed down.
Oh, that’s cool!
I didn’t realize how many people in the animation industry were from the LDS: Don Bluth, Ed Catmull, Richard Rich.
