TMI Tuesday

A very "Let's Go to the Movies" version of TMI Tuesday...

1. What was the last movie you saw in a theater?

Alanda and her husband Steve treated me and our friend Max to a movie just this past Sunday.

It was a birthday celebration (Max's birthday is the day after mine) and Alanda fixed a fabulous dinner, showered us with amazing gifts (seasons one AND two of The Venture Bros. is just a sampling of the fabulous presents I received), and then we saw a movie.

Max chose the movie. I had nothing to do with it. So, don't judge me.

It was Underworld 3: Rise of the Lycans.

I won't go into how horrifically bad this movie is, but I will refer you to the Time Magazine movie review by Richard Corliss. The title of his review tells you everything you need to know...

2. What is your favorite movie theater snack?

It's not just my favorite movie theater snack, it is my "must have" movie theater snack.

Popcorn. Severely buttered, overloaded-with-salt popcorn. The bathtub size, if possible.

And if you don't like buttered and salted popcorn when you watch a movie, what else don't you like? AMERICA?!?

3. Have you ever snuck in 'outside' food into a theater?

Well, I haven't, but Alanda certainly did at last Sunday's movie. She snuck in popcorn for all of us.

My mother used to sneak in popcorn and cans of soda, so that, as soon as the lights dimmed, you'd hear my mother, rustling around in her purse and then you'd hear that "Pffzzzt" sound as she opened the can. And everyone would stare, assuming that we were poor, redneck, white trash. Which we were. Good times...

4. Have you ever made out in a theater?

Yes, I went to middle school. Isn't that the same question?

5. What is the 'farthest' you have gone in a theater?

Well, I've done the "Alanis Morissette," but I didn't do it to one of the stars of Full House, I never wrote a song about it and I didn't receive a Grammy Award because of it.

Yeah, other than the popcorn that was stuck to my knees and a sore jaw, I didn't get a damn thing out of that.

Bonus (as in optional): What is one of your favorite movie sex scene?

This will probably call me out for the sick fuck that I am, but the first thing to pop in my head is the sex scene from Fatal Attraction, when Glenn Close says to Michael Douglas, "Have you ever done it in an elevator?," then hits the stop button on the lift and lunges for him. Hot. Seriously fucking hot.

P.S. I found this "Fatal Attraction" picture in a Google image search. I think I've found my costume for Halloween this year...

My then boyfriend was very, well cheap, and hated to pay full price for a movie so we would go to The Foundry in Georgetown where movies were $1.00 and came out on video the next day.

One night, I had to work late and so I told him to meet me at the movie and we'd eat after but I was starving so I stopped at our favorite Chinese place and we ate it during the movie (with chopstickes thank you very much). It was great! and became our regular thing to do. BTW - the 1st movie we did this at was the X Files and even the "I smell Chinese" exclamation from a not so close neighbor didn't discourage us.

I'm a proud American that doesn't eat popcorn at the movies (I worked in movie theaters for 15 years... I get a craving once every 7 years or so).

FYI: I've done a lot more than make out in a theater--if those projection booths could talk (horny 16 - 18 year-olds with keys, desires and a 24 pack of condoms...)

Thanks for the Dave Coulier information... I had no idea (and now I'm a bit ill). If it was John Stamos... well, that I can get behind.

Popcorn, extra butter but easy on the salt. Perfect.

That Pfffft, in my case, would have been a can of Budweiser.

OH!!! One day I Might forgive you for dishing my favorite movie. *leaves in a hUfffffff* =P

Alanda said...

Happy Birthday! Yeah, Me No Lycan either, but it was good to share the bad movie with you. PS: your last gift is in the mail!

LOL @ Chris' comment: If it was John Stamos... well, that I can get behind. Beautiful double entendre!

My husband wants to see that Underworld movie - he can go alone.

Happy TMI!

It must be a question of visual perspectives, but I thought the movie poster made Lycum look like he was sitting on the toilet.

And the "Fatal Attraction" costume is genius! But she looks a little more like Verna Bloom as Dean Wormer's wife in the "Where Are They Now? An Animal House Reunion" featurette, where she's a Chicago barfly with a frowzy red wig.
