Do you like movies? Answer the Friday Five!

Hey, happy Friday! TGIF πŸ™‚ It’s time for the Friday Five. I thought it would be fun to do a movie themed set of questions this week. Every year around this time, I start to feel very excited about movies. Something about awards season, all the glamour, all the great movies… I love it. I hope you like movies as much as I do… and if you do, I have the Friday Five for you. I’m doing five movie themed quizzes and giving away a $10 iTunes gift card, which you can use for anything on iTunes – including renting a couple movies.

Just answer my Friday Five questions below. Don’t forget to enter some sort of contact information for yourself! I need at least an email address, Twitter account, or Facebook account. Each person who comments below today will be automatically entered in the randomly drawn gift card contest. This week I’m giving away an iTunes $10 gift card to the randomly chosen winner, both courtesy ofΒ Swagbucks. (SwagbucksΒ isΒ an entertaining and easy place to earn free gift cards that I am obsessed with.) If you don’t want to enter but still want to comment, just say that somewhere in your comment.

    1 & 2: Right now, or all time? For right now–Come to think of it, I don’t have a favorite actress. And for favorite actor, Benedict Cumberbatch. πŸ™‚

    3: Last great movie–Helvetica leaps to mind. (I admit I have a special interest, but I think it’s surprisingly fascinating.)

    4: I prefer at home, on DVD–theaters are cramped and noisy, and you can’t pause the film in the middle!

    5: I got “You Should Watch a Drama”. I love dramas, definitely, but I think I’d rather watch an old musical tonight, or something equally escapist!

    1. Helen Mirren
    2. Tom Hanks
    3. “The Intouchables”.
    4. At the cinema.
    5. You Should Watch a Drama

    You are thoughtful, philosophical, and introspective. People fascinate you.
    You crave drama in everyday life, and it’s probably better for you to sometimes get it from a movie!

    You’re the type of person who can talk for hours, and you never mind a movie that’s heavy on the dialog.
    You analyze every aspect of your life, and you like a movie to provoke you a bit. You rather be disturbed than feel nothing.

    1. Renee Zellweger.
    2. Ashton Kutcher.
    3. Daddy day care (I recommend :D).

    5. I got “Comedy” (it’s my favorite genre as you can guess : D) and the result i got describes me perfectly!

        Now that I think about it maybe the other parts of the enneagram should be included as well (characteristic role ego fixation temptation vice/passion and virtue all being in separate quizzes of course). I got all of this off of ennegram of personality on wikipedia.
