PSS: Adult ADD...Favorite Movie, Actor..oh Look! A Cookie!!!

This week my sister asked: Your own, personal all-time Oscars. Best Actor ever, Best Actress ever, Best Film ever, And, of course, WHY?"

I think have adult ADD. I can't sit through a movie and just watch the movie. I have to have a magazine to look at, the internet to browse, laundry to fold, nails to paint, a craft project to work get the point. I am not much of a movie buff. I want to watch a movie that makes me feel good and makes me laugh. I will admit I like chick flicks. I know they all have the same plot and the same ending. I think that's why I like them. I know what to expect. I'm not going to be sad in the end because the good guys always win and the guy and girl always end up together. I don't watch serious "grown up" movies. (I almost put adult movies but I don't want to give anyone the wrong idea.) I don't like scary movies. I get scared way too easy and I am jumpy enough without the help of monsters or scary guys. I can usually only watch a movie once. I can't sit through something I have all ready seen before; it drives me batty.

I read the responses from some of the others in the group, and I haven't even heard of some of the movies or actors/actresses listed. I am not even going to try to come up with an answer to make me sound smart. Cuz, who I am kidding. I used to have the movie Clueless memorized.

I do have movies and actors/actresses that I like. Since I don't have favorites, I'll just make a small list of my likes.

Movies: Patriot. The part where the little girl says, "Papa! Papa! Don't go. I'll say anything. Don't go!" makes me bawl every time. I can hardly even type it without getting misty eyed.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Very disturbing but very good.
Finding Nemo. This is Christian's all time favorite movie. He has it memorized. When we are in a store that uses a PA system, he will say "Can't hear ya, Peach."
Armageddon. The end makes me bawl every time.
Grease. Love, love this movie!
Xanadu. This movie makes me want to go roller skating and prance all over my living room.

Actors: Suddenly I can't think of any I really like, just some that I don't. Tom Cruise and Eddie Murphy top the list. Brad Pitt is up there too. I do like John Travolta and William H Macy though.

Actresses: Again, those I don't like come to mind first. Angelina Jolie is close to the top. I must not be normal because I don't think she is that hot either. I like Kate Hudson and Charlize Theron. They are both just so stinking cute.

I think the last movie I saw in a theater was the Veggietales movie and before that it was Enchanted. I can't sit through a movie usually. If I get a babysitter for a few hours, I would rather not sit in silence with Marcus. I would much rather do something that involved adult conversation.

I think I need to expand my movie watching. I just have a hard time concentrating and paying attention...oh look! a cookie...wait, what was I saying?

Oh Monica... oh Monica.. I'm so sad for you. Tell Marcus he should be embarassed by your list as well. You need to sit down and watch some real films.

Seriously.. you need a theatrical intervention.

I'm sorry this is kinda mean, but wow.. what a horrible list. You need help. :)

Monica said...

Ouch! That hurt a little!
You are trying to tell me that you don't love Grease and Xanadu? Maybe you are just afraid to admit it...I, on the other hand, am not afraid. How do I know you don't secretly put on roller skates and short shorts and skate around your kitchen singing the Xanadu song?
HEY! Like you have any room to even talk...I least I answered the question!!! :)

Shane said...

hehe.. I actually hate Grease, but love Xanadu for it's campy-value. I think it was just "The Patriot" that made me groan. Sorry for being a meanie.
