Cinemaniac Reviews is hosting a blogathon questionnaire.
Here are the questions and my answers:
1. What’s your favorite movie?
2. Least favorite movie?
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
3. Name one movie you loved upon initial viewing but eventually grew to hate (or vice-versa).
I was initially bored with The Virgin Suicides, but after re-watching it, and reading the book, it grew to be one of my favorite movies. Plus, I’m in love with Kirsten Dunst and Josh Hartnett…so it works.
Kevin Spacey, American Beauty:
Janie, today I quit my job. And then I told my boss to go fuck himself, and then I blackmailed him for almost sixty thousand dollars. Pass the asparagus.
— Lester Burnham
Look at your reflection in the mirror. You’re a creature of the night Michael, just like out of a comic book! You’re a vampire Michael! My own brother, a goddamn, shit-sucking vampire. You wait ’till mom finds out, buddy!
“In Stand by Me (1986), I realized that what I was creating was going to live on far longer than anything of me as a person. The characters are more powerful than the person that creates them.”
8. Four films that should NOT have won Best Picture?
Honestly, the only good movie I’ve seen worth mentioning is Beasts of the Southern Wild.
But I also enjoyed…
10. Bottom three of the year (currently)?
12. Is there any film you think is actually desperate for a remake?
No. Remakes are typically disappointing.
13. Name your three favorite film heroes.

Its almost a guarantee that when asked what movies should not have won Best Picture, people will answer Crash and Shakespeare In Love. And rightly so.
Oh, and 80s teen movies definitely rules!!
Especially when you realize that Shakespeare in Love was going against Saving Private Ryan. Still can’t get over that…

Great answers here, couldn’t agree more with your picks for four flicks that should not have won Best Picture.
The Amazing Spider-Man sucked, didn’t it?
With the year of 2011 movies in particular… Movies like Drive, Beginners and Shame deserved more (or any) recognition. I was ecstatic that Plummer won for best supporting actor!
The Amazing Spider Man was pretty pointless to remake. Everything these days is a remake or reboot.
Oh I loathe Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and The Amazing Spider Man, horrible movies.
I walked out of the theater after watching an hour of Scott Pilgrim. I did NOT see the appeal of that movie.
