Dogma

Fandango’s prompt for the day is dogma. And while I could write a nonfiction story about the dogma of Dr. Who that has been tossed out the window, or a fictional story about a young boy who must challenge everything he’s been taught if he’s going to survive, but instead, I’m going to go with the first thing that ran through my head…the wonderful Alan Rickman.

Enjoy these clips from Dogma.

30 Day Film Challenge #28

Today’s prompt is a film that changed your life. That’s a tall order for a film, isn’t it? Hmm, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a “life-changing” film, so I’m going to change this up a bit (because I love sharing my favorite films) to “films that taught you something.” I hope you enjoy this selection.

Taught me that there is a difference between book and movie:

Taught me you should follow the rules

Taught me aliens are nice

30 Day Film Challenge #27

Boy did I pick a bad day to remember this month-long prompt lol. Superhero movies are probably my least liked and least viewed movie genre. Hmm…guess it depends on you definition of a superhero.

I enjoy Tony Stark in Iron Man 2

I also enjoy Hellboy

And, I really enjoy The Shadow

Batman (only the 1989 version)

And I really love The Avengers (1998)

30 Day Film Challenge #13

I really haven’t had a film to put to the prompt the last few days, but today’s is easier. There have been many films that have made me want to travel. My top three are Flashback, National Lampoons Vacation, and Up. Each one is about traveling and learning something about yourself.

30 Day Film Challenge #10

Today’s challenge is quite a hard one since movie adaptations are often nightmares. There are many adaptations that are okay on their own (Percy Jackson, Cirque du Freak, Hannibal, Harry Potter for example) but when viewed through the lens of their original source material, they fail miserably.

Let’s see… I would have to say that a film adaptation I love would be Jane Eyre… or Rebecca… or Sense and Sensibility… or Tom Brown’s Schooldays. They each have their faults but tried to remain close to their source material without omitting too much.

30 Day Film Challenge #9

Today’s prompt is: A film with a soundtrack you love. Well, gee, that would be so easy if I didn’t love watching musicals. So…it’s time for another Top 10 to answer this one. In no particular order…

  1. The Greatest Showman
  2. The Rocky Horror Picture Show
  3. Hairspray
  4. Les Miserables
  5. Phantom of the Opera / Love Never Dies (cheating on this one)
  6. Jesus Christ Superstar
  7. Blues Brothers / Blues Brothers 2000 (cheating again)
  8. Little Shop of Horrors
  9. Cabaret
  10. Yankee Doodle Dandy

30 Day Film Challenge #8

Oh, goodie, another prompt that can’t possibly be answered with just one film. Seriously, picking a favorite film set in space is next to impossible. So… let’s turn this into a top 10 (because I love Top 10 lists).

In no particular order:

  1. Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone
  2. Space Camp
  3. Lost in Space
  4. Star Trek (IV is my favorite of the original series, but most of that’s on Earth, so I went with the entire series–old and new)
  5. Aliens (the series)
  6. The Chronicles of Riddick (Pitch Black included)
  7. Event Horizon
  8. Galaxy Quest
  9. Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
  10. Spaceballs
