She said baby, I like the cut of your J-I-B

Although I rarely-to-never update this blog, I got tagged and have nowt better to do, so here we are.

ONE (1) earliest film-related memory:

I don't remember it, but my mother tells me that when she took me to see Cinderealla (I was about 3 or 4), I left my seat, stood in the aisle of the cinema and took down my pants. When asked why I did this, I explained that it seemed like the right thing to do.

TWO (2) favorite lines from movies:

From Anchorman -

Will Ferrell: ... What are you guys doing here?
Guy-who-played-Mike-in-Friends: We've been here literally the whole time you have.

Now, this doesn't make any sense if you've not seen the film, and very little if you have, but there was something about that line that made me laugh more excessively than I had in a long while. Like, worryingly.

From Withnail and I -

Cop: GETINTHEBACKOFTHEVAN!

... Once again, only funny if you've seen it.

THREE (3) jobs you'd do if you could not work in the industry:

Rent boy.
Fashion designer.
King Of The World.

FOUR (4) jobs you actually have held outside the industry:

Babysitter.
Working on my dad's market stall.
Reading scripts and general not-doing-much for my literary agent cousin.
Waitressing at parties.

It's quite a CV.

THREE (3) book authors I like:

Evelyn Waugh.
Joseph Heller.
C S Lewis.

TWO (2) movies you'd like to remake or properties you'd like to adapt:

Oh, I don't know. Any movie I like enough to want to remake it, I'd be worried I wouldn't do justice to the original.

ONE (1) screenwriter you think is underrated:

Well, James Henry, of course.
