10. A Movie You Never Expected to Like but Loved
The McDull series. I began with #3, but ended up with the 4 films. My Life as McDull is by far the best, while Alumni is the craziest. In the series, McDull is an unremarkable piggy… which is the best. A lot of kids are told that they are special [think Disney star specila], so kids feel entitled. In McDull, however, the piggy is an unremarkable kid who accomplishes nothing, but still leaves you with a good message. You don’t need to be the most cool, the most bright, the most talented. All you need to be is a good-hearted person… or er… pig.
LOL, and there’s also Mrs. McDull. xD
11. A Movie that Disappointed You
I want to say Greenberg, but I’m on bad terms with Ben Stiller, so I was half and half about it. So I’m gonna have to go with Hua Mulan because there was so much potential there, and Zhao Wei can be pretty awesome. I mean, scale-wise, it was epic, but Zhao Wei should’ve committed to the hero/bad-ass attitude. Come on! Mulan’s a legend, they could’ve taken other liberties… other than making Zhao Wei look pretty in her armor xD
12. Best Soundtrack/Background Music in a Scene
All About Lily Chou Chou. Salyu + Takeshi Kobayashi + Shunji Iwai. Love xD
Hmm… I should really make a compilation of YouTube videos of the OST.
13. Favorite Animated Movie
Grave of the Fireflies, which also makes me cry… but I didn’t wanna repeat. xD
14. Favorite Film in Black and White
Queen Christina xD I love Greta, and this is my fave of hers.
Plus that line about not dying an old maid, but dying a bachelor. It made my day the first time I heard it. LOL – But you know, this is my list of Modern Black & White, so feel free to add suggestions there.
