Liebster Award 2016

I am so excited to say that I have been nominated for a Liebster Award by the awesome Katy Rochelle of OH SO GEEKY. I am really pleased to be nominated by Katy as I have been following her blog(s) since Girl Meets Cinema. Thank you so much for the nomination!

For those not in the know, this is an award bestowed upon bloggers by their fellow bloggers. When you are nominated, there are a few simple rules to follow in order to accept your award: 

1. Thank the blog who nominated you and link back to them. 
2. Nominate up to 11 other bloggers. 
3. Answer 11 questions from the blogger who nominated you. 
4. Give the nominees 11 questions to answer on their blog when they post their nomination.


1. Fictional location you'd love to visit or live in?

This one is a given, it's Middle Earth aka New Zealand. I wouldn't live there but I have wanted to visit NZ for years. Probably since some of my family moved there in the early 90s. I have wanted to see Middle Earth for so long it feels like a never ending dream. One day I will go there. 

2. A character you'd love to have on speed dial/text to get advice when you need encouragement or help?

I am very tempted to say Liz Lemon just because I love Liz Lemon. She's probably not the best person to give advice for certain things but she's great and her hidden advice is always the best.

3. If you could save any character (movie/book/TV) from dying, would save someone? If so, who?

I think Jack could have survived at the end of Titanic so I would save him. Just think about the life he and Rose could have had together.

4. If you were a superhero, what superpower would you have?

I've thought about this and depending on different franchises I could be involved with the power would change. Mind control would be great but recently, in the wake of the Inhumans, I would choose reanimation combined with being able to cure anything with the touch of a hand as well cause pain to others. I have a character all set u in my mind already.

5. Is 42 the answer to life, the universe and everything?

It would be easier to say yes but I think there is no answer which is terrifying.

6. Describe yourself in 3 words.

Strange, unusual human

7. An actor/actresses films you always see/watch?

This is difficult as there are quite a few. Let's go with Tina Fey as I am pretty much obsessed with her. Which reminds me, I need to see Whisky Tango Foxtrot.

8. What famous person would you like to see get a biopic?

As biopics can be hit and miss, I'm not sure if I want another biopic out there. There are some people who just do not need one. I think I'd like to see a biopic of Clara Bow or Lillian Gish or Louise Brooks but instead of one person playing them, I'd like to see it like I'm Not There style, several actors portraying the same person. And it to be in black and white and tun into colour as the film ends. That's what I'd like to see, something different.

9. Favourite film to watch on a rainy day?

I don't actually have one! I have films to watch when I'm under the weather and films I watch when I'm down and films I watch to get pumped up, but rainy day its usually anything. But for this, I'll go with old faithfully, Rear Window, Hitchcock classic.

10. An actor/actress you'd love to see win an Oscar some day?

Joaquin Phoenix comes to mind but he should have won it for Walk the Link. Does it count that I'd back in time and hand him an extra Oscar that year?

11. A goal you want to achieve this year?

I made a few goals this year, luckily, I have achieved 2 so far. I would like to make a film and finish a story I have been working on. I know that's two, but even if I do one, I'll be happy.

Don't worry if you are unable to do a post, its more important that you know your blogs are amazing!

Questions for my nominees

1. From the sea of cancelled TV shows before their time, is there one you would bring back?
2. What would your autobiography be called?
3. Do you have/own any unusual collections of things?
4. Which director's films do you avoid like the plague?
5. If you owned a cinema, what type would it be and what would be the name? Eg. Drive-In, Outdoor etc
6. If money was no object, where would you live and why?
7. If you had a choice, which period in time would you want to live in? Think Midnight in Paris on this one.
8. Name an actor or actress you used to dislike but now admire.
9. What is your most prized film/TV/comic piece of memorabilia? 
10. If you were a Private Investigator in a murder mystery novel, what would be your name and the title of first case be? Be as outrageous as you wish.
11. Desert island DVDs, what are the 5 films that you would take with you?


  1. Thanks for filling out the questionaire and for still following me with all the blog changes. I appreciate it! Love your answers. I hope you get to New Zealand some day. My big trip dream is London and just do everything over there. It's awesome that you would save Jack. Mind control is scary to think about after watching Jessica Jones. I guess it depends on the person who beholds that power - if they would use it for good or evil. The biopic of a silent movie star is such a cool idea. There really needs to be more women represented from Classic Hollywood who not only fought against the studios. Sorry, ranty. :)

    Great answers. I would also love to visit New Zealand, it just seems so beautiful in the LoTR movies. Thanks for the nom! Since I just recently did one of these, and three all total, I'll have to pass on this one. Still, it's always nice to be recognized. Thanks again!

  3. Thanks so much for the nomination! I really appreciate it!

  4. No worries! Love both the blogs :) You will get to London! Plus, I'm sure you've made some blogger buddies over the pond, including me, we can show you the place. Mind control is dangerous, but I think whoever has it uses it for evil and good, without intention. Kilgrave was crazy messed up which is why he was pure evil. Yes! It's not ranty - there does need to be more, they have great stories that would be interesting to see now.

  5. You're welcome! You have a great blog - really enjoyed your essays especially.

  6. You're welcome :) No problem, I know some blogs I picked were nominated multiple times so its all cool. Ah yes New Zealand - I really hope to get there one day, hopefully within the next year or so. Just gotta plan it all out.

  7. Thanks Katie! That'd be so much fun to see London! *crosses fingers and works my butt off* lol Kilgrave is so horrible and evil. But I have trouble hating him sometimes though because of how David Tennant delivers some of those lines. His and Ritter's wit are such a good match. Tennant has so creepy yet charming, which is exactly what Kilgrave needed.

  8. I couldn't get past the creepy psycho - but Tennant was very good. Don't what they could bring into the next season.

  9. Thank you so much for the nomination! I really appreciate it. I'm not going to do a post, but purely just because I've done a couple already :) P.S. I would totally visit Middle Earth too.

  10. No worries - I saw your comment on Katy's, but I thought you'd deserved another mention :) - Let's hope we both get to see Middle Earth!

  11. Thank you for the nomination! I know it took me a lot to reply, but I really appreciate it. This is my second nomination so I guess I'll to find the time to do a post. Again, thank you!!
