The Magic Ticket

I saw this over at Anomalous Material and found it very interesting. If I was to receive a magic ticket that could transport me to any film that I wished, which ones would I choose? 
The Questions and the Answers are as follows:

What animated feature would you love to walk around in?
Well obviously, it is a fairytale land they live in. There are ogres and talking donkeys and cats in boots and gingerbread men and prince charmings and fairy godmothers... what's not to love?

If you were a cop who would you want as your partner?
Nicholas Angel (Hot Fuzz)
I was going to put Jackie Chan, but then I realised he wasn't a character. Anyways, there is no one as bad-ass or efficient or funny as Inspector Angel here. He can solve a crime and catch a swan, and I won't have to do a thing.

What character would you most like to be sat next to on a plane?
Jesse (Before Sunrise)
Okay so I am cheating a bit with this, but seriously who travels in trains anymore? I have always wanted to meet someone like him and just you know, hit off and have the most perfect conversations of all time with. Maybe there would be a poet sitting in front of us also. Ugh, this film...

What character would you most want to enjoy a passionate romance with?
Jack Dawson (Titanic)
He was my first love, when I was 5. And I have never really truly recovered. Obviously I didn't know the meaning of passionate romance then. Has there ever been anyone more perfect, onscreen or off?

What movie gadget would you love to try out (or steal)?
The DeLorean from Back to the Future
Uh duh. What can possibly be cooler? Besides I have always wanted to time travel.

What film’s plot would you alter and how would you do it?
The Stepford Wives (2004)
This question was a tough nut to crack. How do you change something about a film's plot without changing everything else? I'm going to go with The Stepford Wives, which an almost guilty pleasure of mine, because I always think the film is going fine until the end when they totally mess up the plot and start assuming the the robots are people. Just fix that and I won't feel so terrible for liking this movie.

What one film would you most want to be transported into, simply to be a part of that world?
Any of the Harry Potter films
The most unsurprising of all answers here. One of my most precious childhood dreams is to live in this magical world of spells and goblins and Quidditch, and it will always stay with me. I will use my magical ticket for this first. *Priorities sorted*

Go on now. Use your magical ticket.


  1. No surprise with the Harry Potter love. It's definitely the main reason we loved the books and movies so much :) And the DeLorean might well be the ultimate movie gadget of all time!

  2. Haha, yes. But seriously, LOTR was a very strong alternative. Middle Earth is supercool too.
    And Hellz Yeah for the DeLorean!

  3. Hehe, I also thought of Jackie Chan right after Axel Foley, but didn't remember in which film he appeared as a cop. Nice choices. I thought The Stepford Wives was entertaining.
    And Shrek is so cool. One of the best scenes in I Am Legend is when Will Smith demonstrates he can speak all of the dialogues by heart.

  4. Axel Foley is cool. Jackie Chan was a cop in Rush Hour, and technically was a Sheriff in Shanghai Knights, and well does a lot of similar roles.
    Stepford Wives is entertaining. I like the big reveal at the end...I think it's kind of brilliantly demented.
    Shrek is cool, but they should have stopped it at the first sequel.
    Thanks for commenting :)

  5. Great post, I will try it on my blog, as well!
    By the way, I love the fact you have music here, whenever I open your page, you surprise me with a new song!Today I discovered Not fade away- Florence and the Machine!Thanks

  6. Thank you. We have some answers in common I see.
    For the music thing, thanks and you are welcome too :)
