Roundup and video meme responses

All kinds of stuff happens when I leave town.

To summarize and highlight some posts I've liked from the past few days:

  1. Total number of films I own on DVD/video:
    About 55. I'm just counting mine. I know the DVDs are collectively ours, but D. is more of a videophile than I am. I'm also counting sets as one: if I were to count all the individual discs of Alias, Firefly, etc., it would inflate the number.

  2. The last film I bought:
    For myself or someone else? I just bought Casablanca for my mother a few days ago. For me, I found a little treasure at Movie Trading Company back in March: I'd been wanting The Crying Game for a while, and when I happened to find it for $2.99 there, I snatched it up.

  3. The last film I watched:
    In the theater or on video? On the big screen, Sin City.

  4. Five films that I watch a lot or that mean a lot to me: Chariots of Fire, The Crying Game, The Last Unicorn, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, Wings of Desire, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, The Right Stuff . . . that's more than five. Films that highlight the triumph of the human spirit in some way and that show the better angels of our nature tend to appeal to me.

  5. Five people I'd like to do this meme:
    Lemme see. Taggie does it practically every day, and thank goodness for his film insights.

    It was very hard narrowing down this list, because I'd enjoy reading posts from any of you! You wouldn't be on my F-list if I didn't find you interesting. :) Ultimately, I picked the users whose movies I figured I'd be least likely to guess:
    freakyferret, cake_o_rama, canopic_no_9, goodjoan, organfailure, quandry, twr (well, I'll bet I can guess at least one of yours, ya tubby bitch - yes, I remember. :) ). *hugs*

I think that puts me up to date.
