Quizzage and some real (GASP!) content...

Calliope
~Calliope~
Your muse is Calliope, the Fair Voiced, Chief muse
and the muse of Epic Poetry. Her symbol is the
writing tablet. I wonder if you'll end up as
the next Tolkein...?


Which of the Nine Muses is your muse?

Ok, I really want to see The Passion of the Christ. I have heard it is terribly dark, violent, graphic -- not something I usually go for. And no I am not even getting into the religious implications, as I told my friend junkbox, I have the spirituality of a pineapple... I want to go to evaluate the filmaking. I have heard that the film was so well crafted and I just want to see some fine filmmaking in action.

I think fine filmmaking is a rare occasion, and provides about the only reason for me to even venture out to a theatre anymore. I suppose I have just the opposite philosophy of kirixchi and junkbox who both head out to see the blockbusters and action/adventure stuff in general. This is not to say that I don't absolutely love my share, I am sure most people have heard me voice my love for movies like Spaceballs and Robin Hood: Men in Tights. I don't so much go for films like X-Men, the Matrix, or superhero-esque movies because they are just not my cup of tea. I am one of the few people I know who has never seen any of the following:

ET
Jurassic Park
Top Gun
Independance Day

Not to say they aren't good movies, they just don't motivate me to go to the theatre, and yes I almost always spell theatre like that unless spell check "fixes" it for me!

On the other hand I have seen movies a bunch of people have never heard of:

The Cat's Meow
Monsoon Wedding
The Royal Tennenbaums
