opens this weekend in theaters, the story of two twin tiger brothers that are taken into captivity and seperated. Ahh, the drama. We all love movies that are based upon a cute, cuddly, little animal. Well, I guess King Kong
wasn't so cute and cudddly. Or little for that matter. So yeah, you guessed it. Its all about animals this week.
1. Whats your favorite movie with an animal as the main character?
Does Disney's The Shaggy D.A. count? I throw this one out there because it was the first movie I saw in a movie theater, back for my third or fourth birthday many years ago. I've always kind of had a soft spot for in my heart since then. However, I'm also a fan of the Disney version of Robin Hood and I love the Lion King.
2. Least favorite? And is it your least favorite because of the species of the main character, or just because it was a bad movie?
I've only seen parts of it, but the one where Matt LeBlanc is a baseball player and hangs out with a monkey is pretty bad. I'm in such denial that I've ever seen it, that I've repressed the title. It wasn't that I hated that they used a monkey in the movie, I just didn't like the movie at all.
3. Do you prefer your movie animals to be animated or real?
In pondering the first two questions, a lot more animated movies came to mind than did movies with real animals. Probably because real animals are totally unpredictable and so we get more movies with animated animals. Also, animated animals don't eat as much (though the elephants will work for peanuts! Oh, I kill me sometimes!) So, that's really a long-winded way of saying I like the animated one just a bit more.
Bonus~ If you were to star in an animal movie... What type of species would you want your leading... animal to be. And why? C'mon be creative. Even name your animal flick.
A platypus. They're nature's comedians. And we'd star in Platypus: The Musical!
Me and my skunk?!?! Yeah, have fun. Remember to leave a link to your blog or your answers in the comments. 'Til next time...
