A Bit of Me(Me)-Favorite Movies

June 12th, 2010 by Debbie's World of Books

There’s a Book is hosting a new meme called A Bit of Me(Me).  Here is how she describes it:

We all leave our “footprint” on the world, in one way or another. We each, individually, do something or are someone that makes the world a little better just by being here. I created this weekly meme to get to know the blogging community I love just a bit better. To know what makes them tick, outside of books, that is. Each week I will post a question to be answered in the following week’s “A Bit of Me(Me)”. Check back each Saturday to get the info for next week’s post and link up with your current post right here.

This Weeks Question: Tell us all about your favorite movie and why. Can’t pick one? Give us your top five!

My all time favorite movie has got to be Clue!

If you haven’t seen it you have to go out and borrow it.  I thought it was hilarious and my best friend and I can recite almost every line in the movie.  I know I’m such a dork.  I thought each character was wonderfully done but Tim Curry by far was my favorite.  It’s basically like the game where someone is murdered during a dinner party and they are trying to figure who murdered him.  The end of the movie actually provides 3 different endings before telling you what really happened.  It’s a little cheesy but a fun movie to curl up with.
Somewhat newer but another favorite is Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.  This whole trilogy is actually one adaptation that I loved the movie but couldn’t stand the books (I know gasp!).  I found The Hobbit boring and never could get into the next three books.  But the movie was awesome!  I also have to say I also found both Legolas and Aragorn quite sexy in the movie. *wink *wink

    I didn’t even think of Clue or Sleuth. Good choices

    While I am remembering ones that I had forgotten…Did you like The League of Extraordinary Gentleman? I did and just finished a book that reminded me of that movie, called The Alchemy of Murder by Carol McCleary. Would love to see that one on film.

    I’ve actually never seen Clue, but I’m going to have to check it out now! Thanks for the recommendation!

    And you already know I’m a huge LoTR fan. But I think it’s so funny that you haven’t gotten through the books either! LOL. I had the exact same problem, I couldn’t get into The Hobbit. All the singing and it just seemed to take forever. But the movies ROCK!

    I’m so glad you joined in! I can’t wait to see everyone’s answers each week, I’m having a blast with this!

    I LOVE Clue, as you know. Since today looks like another rainy day, I many have to break it out.

    The favorite that popped into my head is Arsenic and Old Lace, which is a play, but was made into a movie starring Cary Grant in 1944. It’s a screwball comedy where Cary Grant has a series of hysterical meltdowns because he’s discovered that insanity runs in his family, and almost everyone has committed multiple murders, including his two elderly aunties. What, oh what to do, about that body in the window seat?

    Clue is our favorite family game. My dad’s family always got together on Sunday afternoons after lunch and played games. In the summertime it was croquet or badminton. In the winter it was board games. I have every Milton Bradley and Parker Bros games that came out in the 70’s and 80’s. Our favorite being Clue-Master Detective. It’s just like the regular Clue but more characters, more weapons and more rooms. We always carry this with us when we go to the beach and often sit up to the wee hours playing.

    Gwen-I haven’t seen League of Extraordinary Gentleman yet. I’ll have to watch it one day.
    The1stdaughter-So glad I’m not the only one that couldn’t get into The Hobbit and the rest of the series :)
    Jenn-haven’t seen that one but will have to check it out one day.
    Lisa-my cousins and I used to play board games when we were younger. I loved them. Sorry, Life, Clue, etc. I haven’t played that new Clue game though. I wish I had more friends who lived nearby that like board games.
