OMG... I'm so stressed over this! I saw the name of the swap and wanted to join right away. Then I decided to read the entire thread (all 15 pages since I JUST found this swap tonight!) and now I am very much on the fence.
I am a big movie buff... or so I thought until I started reading some of the titles of films on peoples lists. Some I have never even heard of! And... I am a HUGE scaredy cat when it comes to movies. Tarantino, shoot-'em-up stuff is great, but no zombies or other horror types for me thanks. My hubby works out of town for a few weeks at a time so with just me & the kid & the dog home alone in the boonies where we live... horror just doesn't do it for me! So I am afraid I would get a zombie filled list and not be able to watch any of the movies. (Although I did watch some when I was younger and not so afraid of being killed in my sleep, so I have seen the Lost Boys and Nightmare on Elms Street types. And almost any movie based on Stephen King novels I have seen. Odd that I was once obsessed with that evil genius and now the thought of a horror film is too much for me....)
Oh, what to do, what to do??? Plus, although I can almost guarantee the folks listing the films from the film history classes would be bored stiff by my choices, I don't know if I can narrow it down to only 5. So difficult... deadline for sign-ups looming.... what to do...
Ok, so let me say that I LOVE chick flicks, but also have an obsession with true story movies and history based films (even a few documentaries), but a good comedy is right up there also. I can say without a doubt that one film that would be on my list if I did sign up is "Pride and Prejudice" (the new version with Kiera Knightly.)
So... let me think about it for a day... what do you all think?
