advantage_quality-256

Wow, thank you to Riley on Film and The Marckoguy for both nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award!! These guys are both awesome and their blogs are awesome too, you should totally check both out. Thanks guys!

Like a Liebster Award, the rules of the Sunshine Blogger Award are simple:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you
  2. Answer their questions
  3. Nominate 11 people
  4. Write 11 questions for them to answer

I’ll go ahead and answer both sets of questions (though I’ll only nominate 11 people instead of 22 if that’s okay). Let’s start with The Marckoguy and his questions

  1. If you could eliminate one movie from this reality, which would it be?

ANY movie? Hmmmm, probably the 2004 Phantom of the Opera so they could go back and make a PROPER Film adaptation.

2. Have you ever broken a bone?

Well, I did put a hairline fracture in my foot once, does that count? If not, I’d have to say no (and I hope I never do).

3. What is your favorite movie of 2016 so far?

Gods of Egypt (yes I said it, it’s a fun movie, don’t listen to the critics), also The Legend of Tarzan is a favorite as well.

4. What book would you like to see get made into a movie/TV show?

Neuromancer by William Gibson (provided it was adapted properly)

5. Favorite artist/band?

Thirty Seconds to Mars (Echelon for life!)

6. Ever had a celebrity encounter? If so, who? (2 in 1, loophole!)

I got to meet Jared Leto after a Thirty Seconds to Mars concert in 2013 (he was so nice!!!)

7. Batfleck or Baleman?

Neither. I prefer Michael Keaton thank you very much 🙂

8. Favorite kind of pizza?

Pepperoni

9. Favorite comedy series?

Anything Monty Python

10. Why did you start blogging?

I’ve always liked writing and I was full of all of these thoughts about film music and movie trivia and I didn’t know how to share them. Then, as part of a seminar project in my third year, we had to all contribute to a blog on various topics. And it was so much fun that when the class was over I thought it over and said “Why don’t I start a blog of my own?” And thus, Film Music Central was born.

11. What song (lullabies and kid’s songs don’t count) do you know all the words to?

I can quote ‘The Kill’ from A Beautiful Lie by Thirty Seconds to Mars (Also ‘A Beautiful Lie’ from the same album).

And the questions from Riley on Film

  1. What is your favourite horror film?

Alien (that is horror, right?) without a doubt. I try very hard not to watch this movie at night because it makes sleeping very difficult afterwards.

2. What is your least favourite romantic film?

No disrespect to those who like them, but all of them are my least favorite. I used to love romantic comedies but then I got depressed because the way they depict love is nothing like the real world, so I currently don’t watch romantic films (if I can help it).

3. Who is your favourite superhero movie villain?

Loki. Because he’s the perfect villain, period. And he should totally have his own stand-alone film!! (Just saying…)

4. Who is your favourite action movie hero?

Um….James Bond? (I know he’s a spy film character but there’s lots of action so, that counts, right?)

5. What do you think should be the number one all-time greatest romance film?

No comment (see my answer to #2)

6. What is your favourite comedy TV show?

I actually don’t watch any comedy TV right now, I used to watch The Big Bang Theory until the show stopped being funny for me.

7. What is your least favourite zombie TV show?

All.of.Them. I cannot watch zombie shows, zombie films, zombie anything. At all. Ever. Zombies give me nightmares (I’m not exaggerating either).

8. Who is your favourite TV villain?

Cersei Lannister, I love to hate her, she’s going to get it next season.

9. Who is your favourite TV hero?

John Constantine from the cancelled Constantine TV show that was on NBC (still waiting for the DVD NBC….) Matt Ryan totally nailed the character and I’m so pleased he’s reprising the role in the animated Justice League Dark film.

10. What is your favourite TV title sequence?

Game of Thrones for sure! I love how it changes based on how the episode will go.

11. Film or TV?

Both! It really depends on what sort of mood I’m in that day.

    Hi Becky,

    Thank you so much Film Music Central for nominating me for a Sunshine Blogger Award!!
    Congratulations on being nominated twice!! It was great fun reading your answers.

    I’m pushing up against a hard writing deadline, so will simply post my answers here.
    Thanks again for nominating me, and for your amazing blog!
    Enjoy,
    SRK

    My quick answers to your questions are:
    1. Which is going to win in the long run, the DC Cinematic Universe or the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
    Probably Marvel, but why can’t both win?
    2. Favorite film composer?
    Ennio Morricone, Ryuichi Sakamoto and many many more…
    3. Favorite film soundtrack?
    The soundtrack to Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) is worth a listen. Has a 1980s feel, which works well with the New Zealand comedy genre.

    4. How long have you been blogging?
    A few months. Right now, I’m just posting interesting things I’ve come across in my broader research around film. But later, hope to add more opinion and discussion.
    5. Star Trek or Star Wars?
    Star Wars (not the prequels) and Star Trek (original TV series). Old School!
    6. Favorite science fiction film?
    Blade Runner, although it’s technically a tech-noir action film.
    7. What film are you looking forward to the most in the rest of 2016?
    Anything with Chris Hemsworth in it! (kidding) They’re shooting Thor: Ragnarok in Queensland right now, and Ridley Scott has been working on Alien: Covenant here in Sydney, Australia. Neither film is due out until 2017, so I’ll probably see a lot of smaller local films before either of these are released. I’m about to go see Down Under, a comedy that revolves around a race riot.
    8. What’s the worst film you’ve seen this year?
    My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, although I admit to laughing once or twice.
    9. Who is going to win the Game of Thrones?
    Think of the final scene in Macbeth… (who knows)
    10. What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?
    No idea, but it’s lovely to see them back to tell us that Spring is returning.
    11. You can visit Westeros, Narnia, Middle Earth or the TARDIS. Where are you going?
    I’d have to toss a coin between Middle Earth and the TARDIS. But if I chose TARDIS, I’d then visit them all anyway!
    Cheers! 🙂
