Over at Top 10 Films, Dan Stephens has turned the idea from 1993’s Last Action Hero and turned it into a fun blogathon for us film fanatics. In the film, starring Arnold Schwartznegger, a teenage boy uses the power of a magic ticket to transport himself into his favorite movie. Stephens has posed a variety of fun questions for us film bloggers to ponder and the answers are fun to share. Feel free to join in on your own blogs and in the comments.
What animated feature would you love to walk around in?
Rip off a bigger piece of Mike Wazowski’s chair and let me wander around the colorful world in Monsters Inc. There’s plenty to explore through Monstropolis and an endless amount of children’s doors to pop though to scare them, or I could just make them laugh. Plus, I imagine a fun jazzy beat plays there most of the time.
What character would you most like to be sat next to on a plane?
So it seems I’m on a long flight, window seat right next to Quint from Jaws. The in-flight movie sucks, so we amuse ourselves by swapping harrowing tales about our scars over some strong drinks. When we get a little too loud singing Show Me the Way to Go Home, the flight attendant only gets a little angry, just cause we’re so charming. As she walks away, Quint raises his glass, “Here’s to swimmin’ with bow-legged women.”
What adventure would you most like to go on?
I’d be ready to go on any adventure (except that terrible 4th one about aliens) with Indiana Jones. Snakes don’t bother me, so I’d be a perfect candidate to help him out down in the Well of Souls. If he gets stuck in a room where spikes have come out of the ceiling, slowly coming down to impale and crush him, I won’t take my sweet time whining about the bugs. Plus, I don’t need blocks on my feet to drive any getaway cars.
What movie gadget would you love to try out (or steal)?
Obviously, the neuralizer from Men in Black. Have I caused a bit of a mess and now people are pissed and asking too many questions? Just coyly put on some sunglasses and flash! They have no memory of it, and I get to make up whatever story I want to get away with anything.
What one film would you most want to be transported into, simply to be a part of that world?
The nerd in me would have died and gone to a galaxy far, far away to be transported into the world of Star Wars. Preferably, I’d end up in the old trilogy, fighting for the rebellion as an X-Wing pilot. If I end up in the new trilogy, I’d enjoy some Old Republic Jedi training under Yoda and die as Anakin turns to the dark side. No matter how fate goes, the force is still with me.
