Film Meme...

...ok, haven't done a meme for a while (at least a week) so I thought I'd have a look at this one from Hilary.

It's the "top-five critically lauded movies I detest" meme.

Difficult, as I am not really au fait with what is "critically lauded." I rarely watch films unless I'm pretty sure that I'm going to enjoy it because of recommendations from friends who know my likes and dislikes pretty well. I also avoid films I think will irritate or upset me because of their unsuitable content.

1. Brokeback Mountain. Not interested in wussy cowboys.
2. Elizabeth. Not interested in films which lie about the Church and "Good" Queen Bess.
3. Elizabeth: The Golden Age. It wasn't one for Catholics... Not interested in films which lie about the Church and "Good" Queen Bess.
4. The Golden Compass. Not interested in films which lie about the Church, even in allegory.
5. The Da Vinci Code. I'll include it, even though the film was panned, because the book had such rave reviews. Not interested in films which lie about the Church.

So, now to annoy (sorry, tag) five people...

Ma Beck, Karen, Leutgeb, Paulinus and Jackie. There are a lot of memes flying about, but I don't think anyone tagged them for this one yet!

But you've got all the most recently dodgy ones already.

I'm not sure that I can find another five....

Some duplication may be necessary.

Sorted.

All done during the second mvt of Beethoven 7 and it was taken at quite a lick.

I'm so easy to please with films. There have to be car chases or explosions or both.

Simple.

Probably not. I just made it up. I got the idea from Kathy Shaidle who just commented, adding her list to the original one at Libertas.

I'm quite pleased with the results of my first meme. It is going like mad all over the place.

Don't mind if I tag myself with this one.

Oh it's a film meme! In that case...
