Have you figured out yet that my favorite movie genre is scary movies? No? Then this must be your first visit!
And if it is, here's a brief background for you. Due to husband's mobility problems stemming from a stroke at a young age, most of our entertainment is from movies. (With the computer coming in at a close second.) We used to go out to the movies a lot more often, but as we have a satellite dish now, we can watch a whole lot of stuff in the comfort of home: instant replay, temperature control, snacks of choice, comfy seats, and no whisperers/gigglers.
So every Saturday, I post some sort of question on my blog. Someone recently asked me how I choose what to ask. I always choose something from a movie I've seen. I don't go hunting up movie titles and trivia questions just for the heck of it. Many times, when I've seen a movie I really liked or an actor or actress who caught my eye, I go researching it, looking up the story behind the plot, especially if it's based on a true story, or finding out what else the person has been in. I'm also a devoted credit-watcher--always the last one to leave a theater, even if we go with friends.
Usually, when I ask a question, it's about something I've watched or rewatched pretty recently. An exception was the Paul Newman question after he died. I hadn't seen one of his movies in a while, but one of my favorites was Butch Cassidy, so I went looking for quotes from the movie, and there were so many memorable ones to choose from.
SO, this leads me to a new rule. If I don't choose questions from movies I haven't seen, I think it's unfair to the rest of you if someone goes researching the answer on the internet. Anyone can do that, so where's the sport in it? Guesses are great. Watching the movie you think is the answer, or contains the answer, is more fun, and you might be able to come up with a better question, one that stumps me. Obviously there's no way to know if you look it up, but in the interest of good sportsmanship, we're all on the Honor System.
AND, (sneak preview here) since Chillers and Thrillers month officially ends on Friday, I'm going to have Saturday at the Movies on Friday next week: Halloween Day. But, since I will be crazy-busy this next week getting ready for all my little spooksters, I am opening it up to all of you to stump ME.
Pose a question, from some scary movie that you've seen, by midnight Thurs. night, EDT, and I will post them on Friday morning. (Since I will be too busy to watch movies that day, it's a pretty good bet that if I haven't already seen the movie, I won't be able to guess it.) And yes, Libby, DH can play for you, since you don't watch scary movies.
I will post my answers by midnight Fri. night, EDT. Then Saturday, you can all come back and laugh at me for falling flat on my face here, and tell us all the correct answers.
Okey-dokey, now to this week's question. This is a quote from one of my top 10 (as if I could narrow it down to 10) favorite scary movies:
