Knitting and Movies

I really should finish something already on the needles, but nothing was inspiring me so I started some new Jaywalker socks.
The start of a cardigan for my niece Emme.

Sue tagged me for the movie meme a few weeks ago. Living in the country and having children means I haven't actually been to the movies since September 2004 so it's taken me a while to think about this.
1. One movie that made you laugh - The Castle.
2. One movie that made you cry - I'm not a cryer. If you see me cry at a movie it means I have really bad PMT - just back away slowly.
3. One movie that you loved as a child - I didn't see many movies as a child - I remember being taken to see The Man from Snowy River
4. One movie you've seen more than once - Dangerous Liaisons and a lot of 80s movies like Ferris Bueller and The Breakfast Club.
5. One movie you loved, but were embarrased to admit it - Girls Just Want to Have Fun, we used to watch this a lot when we were young. Funny Sarah Jessica Parker never mentions this one.
6. One movie you hated - Knocked Up - barely got half way before I gave up on it.
7. One movie that scared you - I once went to a double of The Clockwork Orange and Natural Born Killers.
8. One movie that bored you - I'm not big on childrens movies, Shrek, Nemo etc I can't sit through them.
9. One movie that made you happy - The Princess Bride
10. One movie that made you miserable - Dead Man Walking
11. One movie that you werent brave enough to see - Can't think of one
12. One movie characted you've fallen in love with - this was really tricky and I can't think today.
13. The last movie you saw: The Nanny Diaries - I was really disappointed.
14. The next movie you hope to see: Can't wait to see The Sex and the City Movie.
I'm not tagging anyone, but if you have any good suggestions for what I should rent next from the DVD shop as soon as I am not so sleep deprived let me know.

The Castle, I agree definately funny. I loved this movie for its good 'ol fashioned family values, the no frills family who loved each other dearly.

The jaywalkers look great, what color are you using for them. I love your niece's cardigan in the slubby yarn. What pattern are you knitting. I am sure it will be extra cute. Thanks for joining in the meme too, I think I watch move DVD's than movies too.

Your yarn colors are beautiful -- I can't wait to see the cardigan. And yay! I've finally found someone else who hated Knocked Up. I just didn't get it and people here were raving about it. Yuck!

I think I know every single word to 'Ferris Bueller' and 'The Breakfast Club'!

But more importantly, I'm so glad I'm not the only mom to admit that I really don't like those kid movies! 'Nemo', 'Shrek', etc...

Michelle said...

Clockwork Orange - oh my, I agree. It is one of The scariest films ever!

I love the socks!
know what you mean about kids films...yawn!

Those socks are wonderful!

I don't go to the movies much either. I prefer to see movies on dvd rather than at the cinema. (bright lights in a dark room give me a headache) I do make an effort to take the kids though. Sitting through kids movies is torture. I know I don't like the movie when I start looking at my watch! Sometimes that starts just minutes into the movie.

I love television on dvds. I love being able to watch an entire series without having to wait weeks to find out what happens. We regularly have 'a-thons'. Gilmore Girls, As Time Goes By, A Fine Romance (all very girly, but I am a girl!), One Foot in the Grave, Monk etc.
