  1. That’s an interesting take on the ‘questions’ post idea Anna. It’s interesting to learn a little bit about the blogger behind the blog and what their early movie experiences were like. I’d give my own answers but I think I’m all memed out at this stage. Maybe sometime in the future I’ll tackle these questions, they are pretty original ones.

    • Thanks Ronan! Yeah, I know youre feeling about memes, you read so many of them and afterwards I often feel whether there’s anything left for me to say / pick. So I guess picking my own questions was kind of a reflection on that sentiment haha.

  2. This is really difficult! I think the only one I can come up with is

    First R rated movie I ever saw
    True Lies

    I’d have to change the categories around. I remember all anyone could talk about in elementary school was Mufasa dying. Ah the memories.

  3. Wow what a list. Some real belters in there. My favs are;

    • The First Time I Realized Robert De Niro is a Genius
    • The First Time I Thought The Film Was Better Than The Book
    • The First Film Character That Annoyed The Hell Out Of Me

    Again, great list.
