1. I actually do remember I have one of these. I just have so little to talk about in my life. That's probably a terribly sad fact to admit to.

2. My head hurts. ;; I think I'm getting a head cold.

3. Pirate movies are epic. My favorite is still, by far, The Crimson Pirate with Burt Lancaster in it. I was thinking about it the other day and realized that...old movies from the 40s/50s/60s have a sort of charm to them that the movies today don't have. I find that while there are things in new movies that I enjoy, and yes...I am giddy about...

I still enjoy the old ones so much more in some ways. I realize that in part it is because I'm not a fan of CGI stuff. It sort of bores me. But also? I think that the old movies were more interested in telling stories...instead of just making things pretty. I feel like a lot of movies from about the 90s on were more about looks than story.

Sort of sad.

Though I'm curious now, what is your favorite genre/classic/old movie? XD

EPICS. Or courtrooms.

My favorites are like, Gone with the Wind or 12 Angry Men.

Well I did XD...But Courtroom dramas reminded of me A Few Good Men. I AM A DERP, LEAVE ME ALONE.

I love old horrors, but you knew that. I have so many crappy old Vincent Price ones on dvd. I hope they put them on blu ray, even if the film quality's still ass...

I don't remember if I told you. but I have The Cabinet of Dr Caligari on dvd too. It's a silent film and my mum thinks I'm mental to own it. :/

I don't think you told me that, but I'm not sure I've seen it either. I'll have to look it up to watch. Also, Vincent Price's movies are so much fun, so crappy quality or not, they are worth owning.
