1. Who’s your favorite actor/actress and what’s your favorite performance that they’ve ever done? It can be something you’ve seen on stage, or in a film/television show/etc.
Okay, I need to explain myself. I’m terrible at watching things. When I was a kid and teen I watched TV 24/7, but then I just…never really made the transition to loving adult television/movies? I don’t know, I rarely go to the movies and hardly watch TV shows these days. I’ll spend days and days reading a 900 page book, but its 2 hour movie adaptation? Nah. What is my problem? I don’t know!
I’ve tried hard to pinpoint why this is. I think a lot of what’s popular is stuff I’m not into – super heroes, sci-fi, action, romcoms – but they’re the types of movies people tend to choose for movie nights, so I’ve spent many nights of TORTURE sitting through them (no offense I’M SORRY). And as a result my attention span and willingness to give movies and shows a chance as dwindled. And I’ve just always preferred reading as my top form of entertainment, I think.
So…as a result I don’t really have a favorite professional actor. BUT I’m going to get sentimental here, because my favorite actor is one of my best friends. His name is Napoleon and he’s an amazing actor/singer and I love going to see his shows. He played Bobo in a college production of A Raisin in the Sun and he was on stage for literally 10 minutes and I was blown away with what he did with such a small part. Very great show, too.
So guys, please recommend movies/shows/plays/etc! I think I tend to enjoy things that are more historical, perhaps whimsical, maybe on the fantasy side? My favorite stage show is Les Mis, and if I had to pick a favorite movie I think I’d say Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (I saw it 5 times in theaters and that’s saying a lot), and my favorite show I’ve watched recently is Anne with an E (I binged watched it with no one forcing me and that’s saying A LOT). So please, recommend away!!
2. Which book would you most like to see adapted into a film and why?
The Raven Cycle, which is becoming a show, and in light of my last answer, I’m excited but extremely cautious of being excited because I’ve been burned before by television. But the writing is so cinematic, and the settings can be so eerie and beautiful, and I’d love to see it translated to screen. I’d especially love to see the scenes at the Barnes. If they do it right I’ll be a very happy camper.
3. Talk about and share a picture of your pet(s)!
His name is Cookie Dough and
we I have lots of fun with Snapchat filters.
Again this week I have to be somewhere and don’t have a lot of time to tag people, but I’m gonna go off my answer to question 1 and use it as inspiration for two of my three questions. Please consider yourself tagged and ping me back in your post so I can see your answers!! I’m very curious.
- What’s your favorite TV show and why?
- What’s your favorite movie and why?
