I love Andy. He always makes me smile.
Yeah his portrayal of Cecile was spot on and he really played it for laughs. Even SMG had a hard time to keep from laughing in between reading some of her lines.
Anyone else wanna join in on this round?
@Toni or @Jessie perhaps?
I'm gonna give you all some more time to take part in this round. So you'll have until Saturday to add your SMG lists if you haven't already and wanna join in.
Then I will change to something new for you to list on Saturday. So we'll be back to shifting genres, directors, stars, decades etc. on weekends.
First of all sorry it's taken me so long to compile this together. I was sort of hoping that more people would want to join in as it seems a bit sad that your favourite Sarah Michelle Gellar movie is a movie where she's not even playing a major role. But oh well the winner is:
Scream 2 (1997)
This is an american horror slasher film directed by Wes Craven. It's about Sidney Prescott who has survived a massacre in High School and have now moved on to college. As a movie about the events are released at the cinema a bunch of copycat killings starts to happen around campus. The killer spree starts again and Sidney has to fight to survive once again...
The movie stars: David Arequette, Neve Campbell (in the leading role), Courtney Cox (as the nosy reporter Gale Weathers), Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jamie Kennedy, Jerry O'Connell, Jada Pinkett and Liev Schreiber.
Oh and if someone needs a reminder, SMG played Cici a college student, who was chased up the stairs in this scene:
Here's a trailer for the winning movie:
You gave Scream2 a total of: 31 points.
The second runner up was:
I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)
Four teenagers accidentally kill a man when they are out driving a summer night.
They dump the body in the sea and swear never to tell anyone about what happened.
But of course it comes back to haunt them...
This is another american horror slasher movie. Starring: Jennifer Love Hewitt, Freddie Prinze Jr, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Ryan Phillippe.
It is directed by: Jim Gillespie. It is based on a roman by Lois Duncan.
You gave it a total of: 28 points.
Here's a trailer for that movie as well:
Then here's the rest of the list:
Scooby Doo (2002) 21 p.
Cruel Intentions (1999) 20 p.
The Grudge (2004) 14 p.
Veronica Decides To Die (2009) 14 p
Simply Irresistible (1999) 9 p.
An Invasion of Privacy (1983) (TV) 7 p.
Scooby-Doo 2 – Monsters Unleashed (2004) 7 p.
The Grudge 2 (2006) 7 p.
Suburban Girl (2007) 6 p.
Possession (2008) 2 p.
Harvard Man (2001) 1 p.
Thank you to everyone who's taken part in this round.
Also since a lot of you haven't seen more than one or two SMG movies I figured I'd throw in a couple of more trailers of movies that I think are worth a watch:
Suburban Girl (2007)
Cruel Intentions (1999)
Veronica Decides To Die (2009)
Then it's finally time for a new round. This week let's list your favorite movies from:
The Sixties was a decade when the studio system in American cinema collapsed and a new wave of young directors took over Hollywood. The movie industry also had to struggle with the popularity of TV and declining tickets sales at the cinema. Especially popular were TV shows such as Bewitched (1964- 1972), I Dream of Jeannie (1965-1970), The Flintstones (1960-1966) and Peyton Place (1964-1969).
The cold war between the USA and Russia escalated and was manifested in a number of ways. They built the Berlin Wall to divide east from west. They competed to become the first man on the moon. It was a competition that the USA won in 1969 when Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon. They were also on opposite sides in the Vietnam War.
The decade is sometimes known as the Swinging sixties because social labels regarding sexism and racism collapsed. The Civil rights movement led by Martin Luther King demanded equal rights for black and white people in the USA. During the second half of the decade young people began to revolt against conservative norms and the Flower Power movement got started. Their followers became known as hippies and they organized lots of anti-war protests and sit-ins at college campuses.
The decade also saw the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963, his brother Bobby Kennedy in 1968 and Martin Luther King in 1968.
The Beatles, a boyband from Liverpool, dominated the popular music charts this decade. But the American record label Motown also came to have some influence over the music scene with artists such as Diana Ross & the Supremes, Marvin Gaye and the Jackson 5. Some other notable music acts were Ike & Tina Turner, Sonny & Cher, Johnny Cash, Sammy Davis Jr, Frank Sinatra, Tommy Steele and Elvis Presley, who spent most of the decade working on his movie career.
