11 Things About Me

I write for two other blogs, besides this one.

I play drums for a glam rock/punk band called  Parental Advisory.

Every time I watch "Gladiator", I fall asleep.

I love movies that are  heart-warming and ones that are disturbing..

I much prefer to go to movies by myself the first time I see them.

It bothers me when people say they are a movie buff, but flat-out refuse to watch certain genres or movies past a certain year.

I wish more of my friends liked horror movies.

My real name is Jason, but all my friends call me Vern .

I can easily seperate an actor's personal life from their professional life.

The first movie I saw in theaters was a re-release of "Fantasia".

I have a lazy eye and can not see 3D movies very well.

Answer The 11 Questions.

1.  What City and Country do you live in?  Minneapolis, Minnesota

2.  If I should watch one movie I may not have seen, what should it be?  " Network"

3.  What are the best comments that have been left on your site.  I enjoy every time a person takes time to post a comment on my site.

4.  And The Worst?  I really hate it when people sign their comments as anonymous.

5.  Of all the posts you have written, which are you the proudest of?  10 Best Opening Credits.

6.  What inspired you to be a blogger?  My love of movies and the enjoyment of meeting other great writers.

7.  Do you write in your native language?  Yes, English.

8.  How often do you visit the cinema?  At least 3 times a week.

9.  If someone is sitting near you and keeps talking, do you call them out or ignore them?  I will walk up and ask them nicely to be quiet.  If they refuse, I will get management involved as well as getting my money back for having time missed.

10.  When it comes to new movie releases, have we ever had it so bad?  We are at least getting a few more original ideas, rather than remakes or sequels.

11.  Is 3D here to stay?  It may be, as long as people like spending high amounts of money for it.

Create 11 Questions.

  1. Thank you so much!

    This one is really fun, I got one from Sofia over at FilmFlare yesterday and I'm still thinking of the answers, man people are really creative with some of those questions!

    1. You are welcome, Sati. I look forward to reading your answers

  2. Vernnnnnnnnnn...

    :D Thank you sir! Appreciate the props! :D I dont usually play these - pass them on, etc... but your questions are great. You're tempting me to break long standing policy. LOL

    You fall asleep during Gladiator, man? Whats up?

    1. Oh Cool Fogs. I would love to hear your responses to some of the questions.

      I have seen Gladiator 3 times and each time I fall asleep. I need to find a good Home theatre system to watch it in

  3. Great answers. "Network" should be required viewing at every high school! I have a movie that every time I have tried to watch it, I fall asleep. It's Hollow Man. I don't understand it, I have tried at least 3 times to watch it, but I never make it to the end.
