5. First film I saw with friends: Titanic
Oh, yeah. I did. It was probably a group of at least 7 giddy girls and me going into Titanic. I’m picturing it, and I think it’s horrible. The idea of 8 11-year-olds giggling… OMG, the horror!
6. First sex scene: Titanic?
Considering I probably didn’t understand that the naked lady on top of John Saxon on Enter the Dragon was more than giving him a massage, or that Jim Kelly was choosing more than just giggling lady friends.
Or that the scene in which Kathy Baker straddles aÂ startledÂ Johnny Depp on Edward Scissorhands didn’t actually end up in a sex scene anyway… but made me feel strangely in a dangerous position of not getting caught watching it…
I would say the first “sex” scene I saw was Titanic, even though you don’t see anything but their hands and the steamed car windows. It’s just bizarre, and I really think I didn’t fully get it I’m sure. I was just more taken aback by Kate Winslet posing naked and being on screen naked for such a long time.
But then again, I remember that Spanish show called La Serie Rosa (The Pink Series) with its silly softcore smut. There’s even an episode with Penelope Cruz, which I found out not so long ago.
Such a bizarre kid I was. xD
7. First horror film: Mr. Boogedy
It seems it wasn’t even a film! But I’ve always remembered Mr. Boogedy Boo! I didn’t even remember what it was about, or who was in it, anything about it. I just remembered Mr. Boogedy Boo! LOL
8. First favorite film: Dancer in the Dark
I truly think that film changed my way of watching films. From that point on, my life was film.
9. First time I walked out of the cinema: The Cell
I didn’t actually walked out. I’ve never walked out of the cinema. I actually rented The Cell, and it was just horrible, I ended up turning it off. I have no idea what it was, maybe it was because I was young, but it was just UGH. It’s in my memory, marked in myÂ subconsciousÂ as a bad film… even though I ended up enjoying Tarsem’s The Fall.
10. First film to leave a lasting impression: Dancer in the Dark
Repeat, I know – It just, it really made me change the way I watch films. It was like a revelation to me, different from the vapid romantic comedies and teen flicks that I was watching with my friends.
