A-Movie-A-Day

So Kraz tagged me sometime recently, sneaking up on me in the middle of the timeless afternoon and screaming, "You're it", before running off into the sunset, leaving only the sound of his shrill laughter behind.

Alright, so I'm it. So here goes:

Films I own (the ones I'd like to name)
Monsters Inc., My Fair Lady, Gupi Gayne, Bagha Bayne. Does Yes Minister count too?

And hey, I started buying films only recently, so let's talk about the films I'd like to own:
Singing in the Rain, The Untouchables, Life is Beautiful, American Beauty, Pather Panchali, Those Magnificent Men and Their Flying Machines, The Lord of the Rings (all three - I think Peter Jackson did a phenomenal job on a fundamentally unfilmable book), Gone with the Wind (ditto), One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (ditto)

Last Film I bought
Murder on the Orient Express (all star cast, and great story).

Five films that I watch a lot or that mean something to me:
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
My Fair Lady
Sleepless in Seattle (yeah, yeah, I'm a sucker for it)
Singing in the Rain (we apologise for the repitition)
Die Hard (I can watch it over and over again...)


Hah! Now to find new victims. Prey. Pray:
Crumpled
Boogerballs
Maverick
Cynic
Yesbob

Get cracking, people.

Book tag will follow shortly. And if you have comments about what movies you feel I must must must see, please write in!

Shrill laughter? I thought manic and resounding would be more befitting. Anyways... (And psstt...i already tagged yesbob).

You know how, in those old b/w movies, villains and vamps laughed shrilly (and yes, shrill laughter can be manic too!) and the scene faded to black? I was always fascinated by that...
Realised about yesbob after tagging him, then felt too lazy to redo it... so there it is.
How's Bangalore treating thee?
