Firsts Of All...

Oooh firsts. Saw this at Andy Buckle's Film Emporium, and it's a pretty cool idea.
These are some of my favourite firsts:

My Favourite Directorial Debut- Sofia Coppola (The Virgin Suicides)
Crazy film, beautiful and funny and dark.

My Favourite Acting Debut- Eva Green (The Dreamers)
She was gorgeous and moody, and overtly sexy and childishly innocent, all at the same time.

The First Movie Theatre Experience that Moved Me- Titanic 
The whole ending, and Jack ofcourse *sniff*.

The First Film Character I had the Hots for- Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe)
Okay I don't know if 'hots' is the right word for what I felt towards Harry as a kid, but I did wanna marry him for forever.

The First Film Character that Annoyed the Hell out of Me- Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst)
I wish she would have just died. painful!

The First French Film I Saw- Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain (Dir- Jean-Pierre Jeunet)
A friend persuaded me to see it. Changed my life forever.

The First Asian Film I Saw- (probably) Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (Dir- Aditya Chopra)
Okay I don't understand why people do not really count Indian stuff in Asian stuff. India is a part of Asia...a rather big part if you ask me, or any geographer. I am Indian, and my father watches a lot of Hindi films. I find it hard to believe that I was as old as 3 when I saw my first film in the cinema hall; it is very probable that my parents have forgotten what really was my first film, but I do clearly remember watching DDLJ so I'll just choose that.

The First Movie Poster on My Wall- (one of them) The Dark Knight
I was not really allowed to "mess up" the walls with posters, until very recently. So when I could put one, I chose to put like a collage of posters of some "culturally significant" films, which I had helped to design and sell in this school-sale thing. There is also Royal Tenenbaums, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Juno, Casablanca and Pulp Fiction in the one BIG poster.

The First Time I Thought that the Film was Better than the Book- Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Gah I feel like such a fan-girl! But honestly, there are very few films which I do think are better than the books they are based on, and I've either read or watched them only after OoP.

The First Time I Realised that Robert De Niro is a Genius- as Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver
It was also the first time I realised how sexy he was.


  1. I really liked Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane! To be fair, her character in the comics isn't that likeable (to some extent she is, but I like Gwen Stacey a lot more) so i think that Kirsten Dunst did a really good job with the character she had to work with!

    I still need to see The Dreamers, though. I have a suspicion that it is going to be Last Tango in Paris Part II, but since I loved Last Tango so damn much, I don't mind there being a sort-of second part to it.

  2. I have never read the the films she is a pain!
    I have to see Last Tango in Paris, but what I have read about it, I think the Dreamers is a much more youthful story. You should definitely check it out though...I bit disturbing but very beautiful.

  3. Could you make a post with pictures of your posters??
