Midweek Mumbling – Top 10 Films Houdini’s Magic Ticket.
I am a little OK a lot late to the party. But here is my entry in to Top 10 Films blogathon
Everyone loves a good blogathon, and when my old Mucka Dan from Top 10 Films invited me to take part in this one I was pretty excited. It all stems from a post he did way back and comes from the classic Arnie flick, The Last Action Hero.
In that film there is a magic ticket which transports you into the film you are watching. Simple idea huh?
Now I could go off on a mad tangent here and waffle on about how much I wanted to be best mates with Kiefer Sutherland in The Lost Boys, but luckily Dan has set us out 7 questions to keep us under wraps.
Here is my very late entry…
What character would most like to be sat next to on a plane?
This is a toughie. Do you want to be entertained? Or do you want to be in awe?
Personally I like a nice quiet flight. I want to have a couple of drinks and maybe have a little sleep. For this reason I have chosen The Driver from DRIVE. He would be quiet enough not to disturb my journey, but he would also be smoldering enough at the flight attendants that we would be getting a lot of extra snacks and drinks. Plus he is pretty handy with a hammer and I know he could fly a plane, what can’t he do huh? Oh and I could also steal his jacket….
What character would you most enjoy a passionate romance with?
See I have to be careful here. It would be very easy just to pick one of my many fancies (yes I am a floozy). But for this one I am going way back. I am going to pick Claire Standish from The Breakfast Club. The prim princess was many a school boys fantasy when I was growing up. I remember clearly the up skirt shot as well. Also I always fancied myself as a bit of John Bender but I know I was actually the geek.
If you were a cop, who would you want as your partner?
Now I am not the toughest kind of bloke. I am a lover not a fighter!! So if I HAD to be a cop I would need a no nonsense partner that would do all the hard stuff and I would handle the paper work. For that reason I choose Harry Callahan. Have you seen the size of his gun?
What animated feature would you love to walk around in?
Well for this one I am going to need some scuba gear. I really want to be part of Finding Nemo. I have seen that film so much and I would love to be part of the sharks support group, Fish are friends not Food…
What Movie gadget would you like to try out/steal?
One film or gadget that springs to mind is the phone box out of Bill and Ted’s. That would be most excellent!!
What adventure based on earth would you most like to go on / OR / What adventure based in an otherworldly, fantasy-based location would you most like to go on?
This is a weird one and some of you would not understand. I know my wife will. I would like to go into The Lost Boys as Michael and just get on with being a Vampire. Rather than fighting it. Party all night sleep all day…Awesome!!
What one film would you like to be transported into, simply to be part of it?
Don’t judge me on this one. I would LOVE to be part of the Star Trek universe. I don’t want to be part of the flight deck. I don’t want to be an officer. I just fancy working on one of the ships. Science officer maybe? I really would love a go on a holo-deck too. Then again, if I was a nobody I would probably get killed pretty quick!
There we have it. I know it isn’t the most insightful, nor is it the highest of brow versions of the blogathon. But I am glad I had a go….in the end!!
