Unapologetically Me

The Ultimate Movie Survey

I did this survey back in 2017. I wanted to see how much my answers varied from three years ago. I am doing it again. I added a few more questions to them mix. I have always loved movies from the time I was a child. I think I came in a great time period to love movies. I was born in 1991 so I was blessed with the 1980s and 1990s to grow up on. As a kid, I loved a lot of John Hughes movies like The Breakfast Club which was one of my earliest favorites. As I have gotten older, my taste has evolved into more crime centered movies which means more Martin Scorcese. Here we go with some movie fun…

The minute you get a little nookie–you’re as good as gone. Sex always equals death. 2. Never drink or do drugs. The sin factor. It’s an extension of number one. And 3. Never, ever, ever, under any circumstances, say ‘I’ll be right back.”

        Yup. Definitely familiar! I’ve just never seen it.

        I think the movie that creeped me out the most when I was younger was exorcist and The Hills Have Eyes.
