Movie Monday: A few of my favorite movies…


Ever since deciding to partake in daily memes on this blog I’ve been searching for something to do on Mondays. After months of searching the Interwebs and being wholly uninspired by what I found, I’ve decided to create my own. Or rather to just simply dedicate Mondays to be about one of my favourite things…movies.

Whether it is sharing my favourite movies, venting over various films I can’t stand or focussing on a single aspect of film-making that inspires and or interests me, each and every Monday feel free to join me with a barrel of popcorn for an exciting adventure into all things motion picture related. Switching off your mobile is optional, but if it goes off during the post, prepare to be scolded :p

For my inaugural Movie Monday I’ve decided to share ten movies that I absolutely adore…but rather than simply tell you the name of the movie, I’m sharing the one line IMDB synopsis. All you have to do is work out what the movie is.

Simple :p

What movie am I?

  1. I didn’t get any of them LOL

    The planet from the first film has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, the rescue team has impressive firepower, but will it be enough?


  2. The only two I correctly identified were #7 and #10, and of those I’ve only seen #10.

    Great idea, can I play too?


    • Wow, I’m impressed. Out of all of them I thought #7 and #10 were the hardest ones on the list! Especially as I’ve never met a single soul who’s even heard of the tenth one, let alone actually seen it :)

      Absolutely you can play too! I look forward to my movie synopsis knowledge being quizzed :)


      • Hehe well I will do one the way you did, next week – I need a bit more time to put it together.

        I loved #10, saw it at a film festival. But then I love Sarah Polley (have you seen “The Sweet Hereafter”?) and Sandra Oh before Gray’s Anatomy. And it was nice seeing Don McKellar in something different after “The Red Violin” which we saw at the same festival I think.


        • The Sweet Hereafter? I have absolutely seen this movie. It’s directed by one of my favourite directors (Atom Egoyan) and stars one of my favorite actors (Ian Holm). Plus, I also love Sarah Polley (from 1999-2006, the first thing I did in every house I lived was put up my ever-disintegrating ‘The Hanging Garden’ movie poster).

          Don McKellar is awesome; I loved him (and Sarah Polley) in the superb ‘Slings and Arrows’ (TV series) and had a small squee attack when I saw him in ‘Scott Pilgrim vs the World’.

          I’m a huge fan of Canadian cinema but it’s rarely, if ever, released in Australia unless the words ‘David Cronenberg’ are attached. For example, The Hanging Garden was not available in any way, shape or form until 2011 – fourteen years after it was made! Personally, I think the Aussie’s are jealous :p
