Ten on Tuesday: The Movie Edition

I promise a recap on my graduation tomorrow, but it will be epically long and full of pictures. I just didn’t have time to get around to it yesterday, so be prepared for the onslaught tomorrow. :) For now, enjoy my answers to Chelsea’s Ten on Tuesday, questions by the lovely Nora!

1. If you could watch only one movie for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Tough question. I’m not a fan of sad or dramatic movies, so I would probably choose something light and fun like Leap Year! I have yet to own this movie but I want it because it was such a sweet romantic comedy, without any crass humor. It’s the perfect movie for a pick-me-up!

2. Let’s say someone wrote a screenplay about you: what actor/actress would you choose to play you and why?

People tell me all the time that I look like Kellie Martin so maybe her? And then there are a bunch of actresses I just absolutely adore like Reese Witherspoon and Amy Adams. It would have to be someone good at being quiet and aloof, but also funny and silly. Hmm...

3. What’s the first movie you remember seeing in theaters?

I have no idea! Possibly The Lion King, which I fell asleep in halfway through.

4. Did you ever make out at the back of a movie theater in middle school/high school?


5. Are you a Netflix-er, Blockbuster-er, or a Redbox-er? (Or none of the above?)

None of the above. I am a On Demand-er. The sad thing is, I rarely see movies. Every once in a while, I’ll venture out to the theater and my mom and I did just watch Life As We Know It a few weeks ago, but before that, it had been a while. Our DVR list is always so full, we just don’t have time!

6. Name one actor/actress who you would give anything to have a dinner date with?

Let’s see...either Shia LaBeouf because he’s so adorable (although his legal issues leave a lot to be desired!) or Reese Witherspoon because I have a monster girl crush on her. In both cases, I probably wouldn’t be able to say a thing, I would be so star-struck!

7. What’s the worst movie you’ve ever seen?

There have been a few. I hated Napoleon Dynamite and there was this awful movie called Stealing Harvard with Tom Green. I went with a bunch of friends in middle school to see it and had to pretend I thought it was good, like they did.

8. Do you sneak snacks into the theater when you go?

Usually, no. I always end up buying popcorn at the stand (I can’t resist!) and sometimes, I’ll buy their overpriced candy. I’m a sucker for that stuff.

9. Movie theater popcorn: love or hate it?

Love. Love, love, love, love, love, love. It’s so delicious, especially those first few handfuls coated in buttery goodness! Yum, yum!

10. What is the all-time best Disney movie, in your opinion?

I’m going to have to say Pocahontas, even though I know it’s not historically accurate. But, man, did I love that movie! I had Pocahontas bed sheets, the soundtrack (with a book to go along with it!), and I believe a Pocahontas Barbie doll. I can still sing every song from that movie, word for word, and I still think John Smith was a hottie. :)

Don’t forget to enter my giveaway for a set of 30 address labels or seals! Giveaways ends Thursday at 8:00 p.m.!


  1. I CAN'T resist the popcorn. I just can't! My mouth is watering just thinking about it...

    Did you know Reese Witherspoon is set to play Ree Drummond, the Pioneer Woman, in a movie?

  2. Awww I love Pocahontas! I recently re-watched it(Okay by recently I mean last August when I was in Prince Edward Island) but I've always had a soft spot for that one, I love her raccoon friend! Also, movie theater popcorn is amaaaazing.

  3. I love these questions so much I'm going to play along this week :) lion king was my first movie too!

    Ha. I love that you loved "Pocahontas" so much!

  5. i'm guilty of being a Netflixer AND an on-demander sometimes. It's kind of sad. Oh, and Shia LaB? LOVE HIM, though I know nothing about his legal issues. Remember him in Even Stevens?

  6. I didn't like Napolean Dynamite either. I just didn't get it. I also love Reese. I totally should have written a girl down for my movie date. Oh well...

  7. Haha, I agree about being a DVR'er. My DVR list is always so full that I have no time to watch movies. I'm starting to care more about TV shows than movies. I'll watch good movies every once a while. In high school & college I used to watch every single movie that came out because my parents paid monthly with Blockbuster. But now that obviously has changed since we got DVR. :)

  8. Who hates movie popcorn???

  9. I think I heard something about that! I think she would make a great Ree! :)

  10. I haven't seen the movie in FOREVER. I really need to buy it or rent it to watch it again & relive the magic. Ha!

  11. YES! I absolutely ADORED him in Even Stevens & now he's this blockbuster actor that I love him even more. :) He's had some legal issues involving stupid stuff so I'm hoping he grows out of it.

  12. Me too! I care way more about my TV shows. I'm really picky about my movies now, especially since movie tickets are EXPENSIVE.

  13. Good question! Anyone who hates it is not someone I could ever go to the movies with. :)

  14. Oh my gosh the Disney Pocahontas movies. I actually used those movies as examples of why they're bad when writing my thesis! (I did it on Native American misrepresentation in film).

  15. You do totallhy look like Kellie Martin - I never noticed that before!!!

  16. KJHartenstein5/12/11, 8:41 AM

    I have yet to see Leap Year but I've been wanting to. We always buy popcorn at the movies too because it's a must have for Dustin.

  17.  I used to LOVE "Pocohontas" too. Even had a Pocohontas-themed birthday party when I was 6.  

    And I'm thinking Reese Witherspoon. 

  18. It is indeed a great edition of movies and I need to rewise again coz I usually prefer to watch movies online


Comments make me all giddy with excitement.
