What a great thread ó I'll happily answer those questions when I have chance .



Iíll give it a go...

01. Name? MovieMeditation, MovieMed, MM or..... Anders. Thatís my real name.

02. Where are you from? Denmark.

03. Profession? Iím still young to Iím still working on a clear path, but right now it is Film and television production with a more technical approach. I want to learn about what goes into creating movies and tv and want to know about every aspect of it.

04. Any famous celeb you share your birthday with? Geena Davis. Christian Dior.

05. 3 favorite Movies? No Country for Old Men, Casablanca and The Tree of Life (to pick three drastically different ones)

06. 3 favorite TV shows? Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, True Detective. Iím not the biggest tv guy but I try to watch the big ones

07. 3 favorite directors? Paul Thomas Anderson, Quentin Tarantino, Darren Aronofsky

08. 3 favorite actors and actresses? Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Robert De Niro

09. A food item you could never have enough of? Tough one, as Iím a food lover and love everything from comforting fast food to gourmet. Make stuff myself often too... If I could be very general about it, I would say fresh, non-processed food. If I had to eat store bought stuff for the rest of my life I would die. I love freshness in foods.

10. Your celebrity crush? Ryan Gosling. And also Emma Watson. Even though she has become a bit too extreme for me with all that feminism stuff. I love Jennifer Lawrence too.

11. Who is your hero in life? I donít know. Right now I canít think of a specific person but I love people that sacrifices all for a cause. Especially when they are famous and thereby have the money and power to turn a lot of people around. I loved Paul Walker. In a way he is still a hero of mine. Such a smiling, gentle soul. So down to earth and so caring.

12. What was the last movie you went to? What did you think? Captain Marvel. Leading up to Endgame. I liked it okay, but it was pretty meh.

13. What is the worst gift you have received? There is no such thing. By receiving a gift you mean something to that person. If they give a bad gift by accident, the thought counts the most and if they do it on purpose you have a special bond with that person and can do stuff like that.

14. What was/is your favorite subject in school? Must have been PE. I liked English too (as it was a foreign language subject) and Media Class, obviously.

15. Describe your love life with a movie title? Out of Sight.





01. Name?

Victoria - or Tory. I actually hate the name Vicky.

02. Where are you from?

California

03. Profession?

Receptionist at a veterinary clinic.

04. Any famous celeb you share your birthday with?

Billy Joel has the same birthday, but we're quite a few years apart.

05. 3 favorite Movies?

Quills, Gladiator, Up

06. 3 favorite TV shows?

Blackadder, Roseanne, Dexter

07. 3 favorite directors?

I don't really care about directors, but I guess Spielberg, Hitchcock, and... Tarantino?

08. 3 favorite actors and actresses?

Joaquin Phoenix, Leonardo DiCaprio, Russell Crowe. I don't care about actresses. I'm shallow like that.

09. A food item you could never have enough of?

Um... bacon?

10. Your celebrity crush?

Joaquin Phoenix, obviously.

11. Who is your hero in life?

I can't say that I really have one.

12. What was the last movie you went to? What did you think?

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World I liked it but, like most sequels, it fell short of the first one.

13. What is the worst gift you have received?

Tough to say. Probably a gift certificate for a massage. I don't like strangers invading my bubble. I never used it.

Though at the time I thought the worst gift was a kitten I was given about 18 years ago. I'd just lost the best cat I'd ever had and the kitten I was given was sick and poorly socialized. It took months to get him healthy and close to two years to get him to fully trust me. I really didn't want him for those first couple of years. Still have him and wouldn't give him up for the world now.


14. What was/is your favorite subject in school?

I hated all the subjects.

Letterboxd



01. Name? I don't give out my real name on the net, so my I.D. is Captain Steel, so you can either call me Cap or Steel, or if you're slightly more daring, O Captain, my Captain!

02. Where are you from? NJ

03. Profession? Currently none (although I've served as a home aid to my parents before my dad passed away and now to my mother - I also do freelance gardening on the side).

04. Any famous celeb you share your birthday with? Rudyard Kipling, Tiger Woods and Eliza Dushku!

05. 3 favorite Movies? I can't narrow things like movies down to favorites - check my profile for some I randomly placed in my top 10.

06. 3 favorite TV shows? Same as above. I have different categories of favorite shows. Some classics are The Honeymooners, Star Trek, The Simpsons. Currently I've been following The Orville.

07. 3 favorite directors? I don't really know Director's work by name, so I don't have any "favorites."

08. 3 favorite actors and actresses? Again, I have trouble with "favorites" - too many come to mind, and I probably like ones even more that I wouldn't be able to think of off the top of my head.

09. A food item you could never have enough of? Pasta (specifically Italian) or Pad Thai!

10. Your celebrity crush? Too many to think of just one.

11. Who is your hero in life? Can't narrow it down to just one (I'm seeing a pattern here.)

12. What was the last movie you went to? What did you think? I think it was Batman: The Dark Knight. Thought it would have been better if it wasn't so "busy" - the pacing, while meant to be suspenseful felt a little uncomfortable, like the audience had to strain a bit to follow along (whereas a movie should move you with it without you having to "try" to follow). Otherwise pretty decent with a new take on the Joker.

13. What is the worst gift you have received? I'd say anything I couldn't use. Probably clothes that I didn't like or which didn't fit. I had to edit this because I just remembered some friends gave me a "Girl's Gone Wild" VHS tape - one of the most pointless, stupid things I ever saw: 2 hours of girls lifting up their tops and screaming "WOOOO!!!" - couldn't at least one of them think of something else to say? The repetition of it's sheer meaninglessness was like torture.

14. What was/is your favorite subject in school? Art. In college it wasn't Art because I was an art student in Rutgers U.'s art school (3/4 of my classes were Art), so probably Astronomy and Abnormal Psychology.

15. Describe your love life with a movie title? On My Own. The Lonely Guy. Castaway.

01. Name? gbgoodies, but you can call me GBG.

02. Where are you from? Long Island, New York

03. Profession? Toy and collectible sales

04. Any famous celeb you share your birthday with? Bill Paxton, Dennis Hopper

05. 3 favorite Movies? It's hard to pick only 3 favorite movies, but Arsenic and Old Lace, 12 Angry Men, The Music Man, Wall-E, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Dead Poets Society, While You Were Sleeping, and When Harry Met Sally all rank near the top of my list.

06. 3 favorite TV shows? Again, it's hard to pick only 3 favorites, but "The Dick Van Dyke Show", Columbo", "The Big Bang Theory", "Stark Raving Mad", "Star Trek", "Castle", "Becker", "My Favorite Martian", and "The Carol Burnett Show" all rank high on my list.

07. 3 favorite directors? I don't follow many directors, but my favorites are probably Steven Spielberg, Alfred Hitchcock, Billy Wilder, and Frank Capra.

08. 3 favorite actors and actresses? It's hard to narrow it down to only 3 favorites, but Cary Grant, James Stewart, Jack Lemmon, Hugh Jackman, Katherine Hepburn, Doris Day, Julie Andrews, Sandra Bullock, and Meg Ryan are among my favorites.

09. A food item you could never have enough of? Chocolate

10. Your celebrity crush? I tend to fall for the characters rather than the actors, but if I had to pick an actor it would probably be either Cary Grant, Hugh Jackman, or Pierce Brosnan.

11. Who is your hero in life? I don't think I have a hero.

12. What was the last movie you went to? What did you think? I used to go to the movie theater every week, but I stopped going because the prices, (and the aggravation from other moviegoers), went too high. Now, it's been so long that I can't even remember the last movie that I saw in the movie theater. But the last movie that I watched was Million Dollar Baby (2004) for the Sports Movie Tournament here on MoFo. The first half was kind of boring because I don't like boxing, but I was so blindsided by the second half of the movie that I ended up loving the movie. (If you haven't seen the movie yet, do NOT read anything about it before watching it.)

13. What is the worst gift you have received? I can't remember ever getting a gift that I didn't like.
