1. Why do you go to the movies?
a. To feel
b. To think
c. To escape
d. To enjoy the air conditioning

I could rank order these since I go to the movies depending on why I want to see a film.  Most times I go to get some entertainment, which is generally an "escape" or to think, particularly if I have heard good critics review about the film. While watching, sometimes I do get carried away and I start to feel with the characters.  Well, except for d.

2. In the last six months, have you viewed more movies at home or at the movie theatre?

 I have mostly watched in our home theater.  Maybe I went to the movie house only twice in 6 months.

3. What was the last movie you watched at home? At the theatre?

 At home, I watched several Indie films, "127 Hours", "Bending All The Rules", "watched this Julia Roberts thing, "Eat, Pray, Love".  I have always loved the fascinating computer effects of epic movies such as Harry Potter Part VII and VIII, and I went to the theater for the total surround impact. If the movie boasts of fantastic CGI, it's worth going to the movie house to experience it.

4. Which do you enjoy most in a movie?
a. Two beings battling to death such as Godzilla and Mothra (or any foe), Gladiator
b. Car chase scene such as Ronin, Fast & the Furious
c. Major heist such as Italian Job, Ocean’s Eleven, Snatch
d. Epic battle scene such as Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings: Two Towers

I have been dreaming of Vin Diesel in my bed with me and getting down and dirty for a couple of years now, (I don't believe he is gay, and I don't really care); so if you mention Fast and Furious, I don't care for the plot, just the explosion of testosterone on the screen, so that's b.  Mark Wahlberg, George Clooney, Jason Statham, oh come on!  Is this a trick question?  I totally lust for these men.  That's c.  I choose b and c and can just waste the opportunity for a and d, but I don't squirm when I go watch them too.

5. In your opinion, which movie(s) have the best or most enjoyable sex scenes?

 Well I will have to say there are 3 scenes that will forever be in my memory bank for life.  Top of my list is the love scene between Olivier Martinez and Diane lane in "Unfaithful".  Hot hot hot!  
"Y Tu Mama Tambien" is next, ooh la lah.  And how can I forget, The History of Violence; oh my god!

6. Which of these is your favorite Hollywood movie plot?
a. Boy meets girl
b. The Jesus Story (apocalyptic; someone is saving the world)
c. Fish out of Water
d. Buddy movie

Chick flick plots for me - Boy meets girl.  spice it with violence, mystery and sex, and I am completely hooked.

7. What is your favorite movie genre? (Thriller, comedy, action/adventure, drama, mystery, fright, etc.)

I like Thriller movies that mixes murder-mystery-whodunnit type. I like to watch Fright, Scary movies at home. I find these to be an incredible foreplay, fear makes me horny.  I may be weird.  I like comedy-romance.  I am not much into drama-romance.

8. In movies, what makes you cry?
a. mistreatment of a prime, likeable character
b. gushy, mushy romance (e.g., marriage proposals, couple finally proclaim their love)
c. very scary jump-out-at-you, make-you-pee-your-pants scenes
d. anyone or anything dying.

Death scenes always move me, without fail.  Be it a human, a pet hamster, just anyone or anything dying. you will see me sniffling, tearing up and shamefully crying.

Bonus: What is your favorite movie? Why?

I am surprised I am at a loss with this question.  I like so many movies for different reasons.  The story, the actors, the cinematography.  I would say I have at least 3 favorite ones.  The Pirates of the Caribbean Series.  Johnny Depp.  Period.  Brokeback Mountain, I really think this is a poignant film about love and relationships. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, this movie profoundly moved me.

5. Just added some films to my must see list.

Oh yes the Unfaithful sex scene was HOT!

I have heard said that the sex in "Y Tu Mama Tambien" is one of the best ever. I have not seen that film. I will have to check out the History of Violence, I never heard of this.

Happy TMI Tuesday.

Hola Hedone, I am sure you will love "History of Violence". I think it's a very intense screenplay but do watch out for the staircase scene. I just found that to be absolutely hot! It should be available on DVD.
Thanks for stopping by. Besos!
