From Roger Green, a movie meme.


1. Name a movie that you have seen more than 10 times.

I've seen RoboCop 1,587 times.

2. Name a movie that you've seen multiple times in the theater.

I saw every showing of RoboCop every single day for 2 weeks.

3. Name an actor that would make you more inclined to see a movie.

Peter Weller.

4. Name an actor that would make you less likely to see a movie.

That kid from RoboCop 2.

5. Name a movie that you can and do quote from.

I have the entire shooting script for RoboCop memorized. Including stage directions.

6. Name a movie musical that you know all of the lyrics to all of the songs.

RoboCop SuperStar.

7. Name a movie that you have been known to sing along with.

RoboCop and the Amazing Technicolor Bulletproof Armor.

8. Name a movie that you would recommend everyone see.

Casablanca. No, wait -- RoboCop.

9. Name a movie that you own.

I would say RoboCop, but one can not be said to truly own RoboCop, one may only be the temporary guardian of its magnificence.

10. Name an actor that launched his/her entertainment career in another medium but who has surprised you with his/her acting chops.

RoboCop's Miguel Ferrer, who started out as a drummer. (No kidding! He even played drums on a 1975 Keith Moon album. He played drums for Keith Moon, the greatest drummer in rock history! How cool is that?)

11. Have you ever seen a movie in a drive-in? If so, what?

I once personally projected RoboCop on the face of the Hoover Dam, thereby creating the biggest drive-in movie screen in the history of cinema.

12. Ever made out in a movie?

Of course! RoboCop is the ultimate date movie.

13. Name a movie that you keep meaning to see but just haven’t yet gotten around to it.

The 1,588th screening of RoboCop.

14. Ever walked out of a movie?

RoboCop 3. And I was on an airplane at the time! Ba-DUM-bum.

15. Name a movie that made you cry in the theater.

RoboCop. "Nice shooting, son. What's your name?" "Murphy." I bawl like a baby every single time.

16. Popcorn?


17. How often do you go to the movies (as opposed to renting them or watching them at home)?

How often is RoboCop in the theaters? That often.

18. What’s the last movie you saw in the theater?

RoboCop. I ambushed the projectionist and made him show it instead of Wild Hogs.

19. What’s your favorite/preferred genre of movie?

Period costume dramas. You know, like RoboCop

20. What’s the first movie you remember seeing in the theater?

I have no memory of any movie I've seen in the theater other than RoboCop.

21. What movie do you wish you had never seen?

Titanic. Also RoboCop 2 and 3.

22. What is the weirdest movie you enjoyed?

RoboCop... in slow motion. (That whole day was weird, frankly.)

23. What is the scariest movie you've seen?

RoboCop 2, as I slowly realized it was going to suck SO HARD.

24. What is the funniest movie you've seen?

RoboCop. That dude getting melted by toxic waste just keeps getting funnier and funnier!


I would say that now you should take your turn at the meme, but let's face it: what more can be said?
