(old stuff from the now gone "Refined Picture Show" blogspot)


Another great quiz by Dennis Cozzalio.






1) THE ONE MOVIE YOU'D DROP EVERYTHING JUST TO SEE AGAIN
Park Chan-wook's OLDBOY (2004). and on the big screen!

.







2) THE ONE MOVIE YOU NEVER WANT TO SEE AGAIN UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES
BALLISTIC: ECKS VS. SEVER (2002) 

.









3) THE MOST TREASURED DVD IN YOUR PERSONAL COLLECTION
Malick's BADLANDS (1973). 
I had to order it from a private seller on Ebay!

.



4) THE MOST COVETED DVD YOU'D LIKE TO ADD TO YOUR COLLECTION
I wish I owned a copy of the Criterion Collection of John Woo's THE KILLER (1989). Every time I find a copy online they're selling it for 200 dollars..

.








5) BEST NYC MOVIE?
TAXI DRIVER (1976)

.






6) BEST LA MOVIE?
TO LIVE AND DIE IN L.A. (1985)

.






7) BEST MOVIE EVER MADE IN OR ABOUT YOUR HOME STATE, OR COUNTRY?
Wes Anderson's BOTTLE ROCKET (1996). The Lone Star State. Texas!

.








8) HUMPHREY BOGART OR JIMMY CAGNEY?
Love them both, but Bogie is the man

.









9) BEST MOVIE REMAKE?
John Carpenter's THE THING (1982). A remake of Hawks' & Nyby's THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD (1951)

.









10) THE ONE MOVIE YOU'D LIKE TO SEE REMADE, AND BY WHOM (DIRECTOR, CAST)
I would like to see a spoof remake of THE THING WITH TWO HEADS (1972) by Adam McKay! The director of ANCHORMAN (2004). Especially if it stars Tracy Morgan and David Koechner in the Rosey Grier and Ray Milland parts. hehe

.








11) BEST INTEGRATION OF AN EXISTING PIECE OF MUSIC INTO A MOVIE
Off the top of my head, the trippy version of  "The Funeral March of Queen Mary" in A CLOCKWORK ORANGE (1971) and Barber's "Adagio for Strings" in PLATOON (1986). 
As far as pop music goes, I love the way Scorsese used The Stones' "Tell Me" in MEAN STREETS. It flows perfectly with the way Harvey Keitel dances with snorricam at his back.
.








12) MOST UNWELCOME POP SONG TYPICALLY USED IN A MOVIE MONTAGE
The use of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" in every Family Movie.. Just kill me now.

.







13) MOVIE THAT MADE YOU WANT TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE, OR THE WORLD
Spike Lee's 4 LITTLE GIRLS (1997) made me want to combat racism in all its forms. In any small or large way that I can.

.








14) KATHERINE HEPBURN OR CAROLE LOMBARD?
Kate all the way!
.











15) YOUR FATHER'S FAVORITE MOVIE
THE COWBOYS (1972)

.








16) MOTHER'S FAVORITE MOVIE
I believe it's MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS (1944)

.








17) THE MOVIES' MOST HANDSOME LEADING MAN OR CHARACTER ACTOR, AND THE ROLE WHICH MOST PERFECTLY FEATURED HIM
Of the "classic" era I'd say Paul Newman in COOL HAND LUKE (1967). In more contemporary cinema I'd have to go with Denzel Washington in THE HURRICANE (1999).
 
.





18) THE MOVIES' MOST BEAUTIFUL LEADING LADY OR CHARACTER ACTRESS, AND THE ROLE WHICH MOST PERFECTLY FEATURED HER
Ingrid Bergman in STROMBOLI (1950) for the classic period & Naomi Watts in MULHOLLAND DRIVE (2001) for modern movies.

.










19) JIMMY STEWART OR CARY GRANT?
Sorry, Cary. I go with Jimmy on this one.

.









20) YOUR FAVORITE ACTOR ALMOST NOBODY KNOWS ABOUT
Paul Schneider! He's so great in David Gordon Green's movies.

.









21) YOUR FAVORITE ACTRESS ALMOST NOBODY KNOWS ABOUT
This adorable girl from RAISING VICTOR VARGAS (2003) named Melonie Diaz.. She should be a household name.

.





22) THE MOVIE YOU LOVE THAT EVERYONE ELSE SEEMS TO HATE
Joe Dante's LOONEY TUNES: BACK IN ACTION (2003). People seem to be mad it's not a SPACE JAM (1996) sequel

.









23) THE MOVIE YOU HATE THAT EVERYONE ELSE SEEMS TO LOVE
THE BOONDOCK SAINTS (1999).. It's laughably bad. I can't figure out why it's so revered among movie nerds.

.








24) YOUR MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT RELATED TO THE MOVIES
I have 2! One is my JURASSIC PARK themed birthday party in 1993. Before cake & presents, my parents took me and a large group of school friends (almost my entire class) to see Spielberg's dinosaur romp at the theater. It was my second time to see it, but none of them had yet. Getting to hear & see their reactions to all the scares was exhilarating! It kicked ass.
The second memorable moment is of my late cousin Isaac taking me to see AUSTIN POWERS 2 when he was visiting from Corpus Christi. Summer of 1999.
His & my younger siblings stayed home and fell asleep while I got to go out to a late night movie for the first time. It made me feel like a big kid to hang out so late one-on-one with my much cooler older cuz. Plus the movie cracked us up! It's not a great film like the first one by any means, but the memory of seeing it that night is special to me. It's the last memory I have of one of cousin Isaac's visits. He passed away a year and a half later in a car accident.

.








25) YOUR MOST UNPLEASANT MOMENT RELATED TO THE MOVIES
Again, BALLISTIC: ECKS VS. SEVER (2002). The movie was so mind-numbingly stupid and on top of that after I got out I found out my High School girlfriend was cheating on me.

.








26) MOST REVOLTING EATING SCENE IN A MOVIE
The giant eating & vomiting fat guy Terry Jones plays in Monty Python's MEANING OF LIFE (1983). It remains the only Python bit I don't laugh at. It's just a gross nightmare. It makes the spaghetti scene in GUMMO (1997) look like normal dining.

.










27) JOAN CRAWFORD OR BETTE DAVIS?
Bette! Especially when she was younger.
.








28) YOUR FAVORITE SPORTS MOVIE
RAGING BULL (1980)
.











29) YOUR FAVORITE SEX SCENE
The shower sex that leads to the bedroom in AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON (1981). set to Van Morrison's "Moondance"!! Jenny Agutter is a goddess.

.









30) FAVORITE MOVIE CAR CHASE
The first chase scene in RONIN (1998)!!
.









31) FAVORITE DEATH SCENE
McCabe stumbling into the snow in MCCABE & MRS. MILLER (1971)

.










32) FAVORITE MOVIE GROSS-OUT
The guy's head repeatedly popping open in BAD TASTE (1987) and him trying to cram a piece of brain back in.

.








33) FAVORITE MOVIE RATING
R for Restricted

.







34) FAVORITE MOVIE THEATER
The Angelika Film Center at Mockingbird Station! Dallas TX
(This honor goes to the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin TX now, but at the time of this quiz I had not been there. + Angelika is still cool)
.








35) FAVORITE MOVIE SNACK
Milk Duds and buttery popcorn!
.








36) FAVORITE MOVIE SPEECH
Toshiro Mifune's rant about "Who made the farmers such beasts" in SEVEN SAMURAI (1954)
.








37) FAVORITE MOVIE ABOUT MOVIES
Tim Burton's ED WOOD (1994)

.








38) FAVORITE HAMMER HORROR
Of the few I've seen HORROR OF DRACULA (1958)
.









39) FAVORITE KURT RUSSELL DISNEY MOVIE
THE FOX AND THE HOUND (1981)

.








40) YOUR FAVORITE DEAN JONES DISNEY MOVIE
I think THE LOVE  BUG (1968) is the only one of his I've seen & I didn't like it. So none as of right now.
