Sunshine Blogger Award

The end of summer is just around the corner, and it was wonderful to end the season by receiving the Sunshine Blogger Award not once - but twice. A huge thank you goes out to Flick Chicks and Mettel Ray for considering me and my blog for this! You gals are absolutely lovely bloggers and friends. I truly consider myself in the best company!

To accept our award, we simply have to: 
Post the award on your blog (Check!)
Thank the person who nominated you (Check!)
Answer the 11 questions they set you (Check!)
Pick another 11 bloggers (and let them know they are nominated!)
Send them 11 questions

The first set of questions from FlickChicks is answered below, and the second set of questions was answered over at Mettel's blog. My 11 questions will be below with my nominees.

From FlickChicks
Settle an ongoing Flick Chicks debate for us. Which Ryan is best, Reynolds or Gosling?
Oh girls, they're both great guys... If I hve to choose, Gosling is pretty funny off-screen and I think I've liked more of his movies than Reynolds.

Who do you think Rey’s Parents are? (We’re talking Star Wars here)
Oh god, anytime I think it's one couple or person, inevitably my choice changes i.e. Han and Leia or Luke Skywalker and someone, or Jyn Erso and Captain Cassian Andor. I just don't know.

What was the first movie you saw in the cinema?
HERCULES. Megara was such a fierce character, Hercules was pretty cute, and I loved the music.

What’s your ultimate guilty pleasure movie?
I'd probably say The Haunting. It's awesomely horrible.

What’s your go-to cinema snack?
Twizzlers or alcohol. lol I love that my movie theater has a bar. It's helped me get through a lot of movies (The Revenant and 50 Shades of Grey for example).

What’s your best piece of advice for new bloggers?
Don't be afraid to rant or rave and feel confident about your opinions, and blog what you love to blog about. And don't be afraid to reach out and make friends. :)

Is there a movie out there that you hate with a passion, and why?
PROMETHEUS. I just - GAHHHHH. I was so stoked to see this movie in theaters and the trailer looked so promising....but then it just ended up being about evolution with a Ripley-copy. I'm not hating on Noomi Rapace or the cast but the script tries so hard to offer something deep and meaningful but it's so thin. Every time it's on tv I inevitably fall for putting it on and thinking it will better than it is....and it's just not so I rant and rave the whole time. GAHHHHH.

If you could create a sequel for any movie that currently doesn’t have one, which one would it be?
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies! The ending leaves major clues on about a sequel if it happened, and I'd just love to see the showdown between the Darcys and zombies continue.

What other hobbies do you have, aside from movies and blogging?
Funko pop collecting is getting out of control. DEFINITELY. I also love reading and swimming.

If a movie was made about your life, who would you cast to play you?
Dakota Johnson. I'm just obsessed with her right now. 

What’s been your favourite movie of the year so far?
Captain America: Civil War, and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. They're both at a really close tie and not a lot has compared to them.

Here are my 11 questions, and I'm nominating the following: Sofia from Film Flare, Katie from She Likes Movies, Sarah from How To Watch a Motion Picture, Brittany from Rambling Film, Life of This City Girl, Crystal from In The Good Old Days of Classic Hollywood, Rhys at Feeling Fuzzier, Ashlee at HerGeekery, and Chris Widdop.

Feel free to answer below instead of in a blog post, if you've been nominated before. I'll tag anyone who feels like answering these too - just for fun! :)

1. What movie surprised you the most this year?
2. If you published a memoir, what would you call it?
3. What movie character would you love to see made as a FunkoPop (that hasn't been made already)?
4. You can only place three movies into a time capsule for future generations. Which titled would you pick?
5. Is there a movie that took you a couple of viewings to appreciate?
6. What actor/actress will make you watch a movie no matter how bad it might be?
7. What actor/actress will make you less likely to see a movie?
8. If you had an opportunity to tell a director to their face how much they messed up a highly-anticipated movie, would you? what would you tell them?
9. Can a soundtrack make or break a movie?
10. What movie made you laugh recently?
11. What movie(s) are you looking forward to seeing this fall?
