Chatting with my sister about the movies

It's a quiet Tuesday afternoon, my sister came over, so I thought to ask her a few questions about her movie tastes. We grew up watching cartoons, horror movies, action flicks, and westerns. Now that were older, I thought I would see some of her past memories and some of her new favorites.

My sister, Amber Berger, is a mother of a four year old, she's been married for almost six years, and has always had a fondness for watching movies, reading books, and American pioneer history.

So here are the questions that I asked her:

1. What was your favorite movie up when we were kids?

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, and I love the book too of course!

2. As kids, mom loved her horror movies, if your like me then you remember two freaky movies growing up?

"Candyman" and "The Haunted." I find "Candyman" strangely fascinating after watching it three times. Haven't seen "The Haunted," since we were kids, but it still creeps me out. I don't like scary movies as much as my mom and sister.

3. I know how much you love actor Johnny Depp, so I have to ask what are your top five favorite movies of his?

Well I find that he's versatile in these movies:

  • "Sleepy Hollow"
  • "Pirates of the Caribbean"
  • "What's Eating Gilbert Grape"
  • "Dead Man"
  • "Edward Scissorhands"

4. I think that your film genres have changed some. What genres or movies are you finding that you love now, that you weren't into before?

I love TCM, though I'm not into romantic comedies. I love watching war movies now, and I've fallen in love with Lee Marvin. "Dirty Dozen," is becoming a favorite in my house. Oh big into "Star Wars," thanks to my husband.

5. I like to make watch lists, so have to ask you what is on your list?

  • "Nebraska"
  • "Frozen"
  • "Wolf of Wall Street"
  • "Dallas Buyers Club"

6. Anything you want to share with the readers?

Yes, never be closed minded. Just because a movie is black and white, looks weird, please don't judge it by its cover! I regret not watching classic movies, because of the thinking "they were too old." I'm thankful that I have TCM and can make up for lost time.

So thanks to my sister for answering these questions. It's a real treat to here about people's views on cinema, because we're all so diverse. So hope you enjoyed it, as much as did doing it.
