A recent work initiative aimed at increasing work cooperation through knowing your co-workers demanded that we all reveal our favourite film.
Fortunately I was elsewhere at the exact time of revealing as I am not sure what I would have answered, I like a number of films, not all of them at the same time and there are some that I would prefer not to explain to my co-workers.
Below is a list that springs to mind (in date order):
‘Iron Sky’ (2012) – There are Nazis on the moon
‘Monsters VS Aliens’ (2009) – animated monsters VS animated aliens
‘The Illusionist’ (2006) – Elegant period drama mixed with magic
‘Blade: Trinity’ (2004) – Wesley Snipes fights vampires again
‘Identity’ (2003) – A serial killer with a difference
‘Le Pacte des loups’ (2001) – more than a French hound of the Baskervilles
‘Dogma’ (1999) – Angels, demons and monsters
‘Lola rennt’ (1998) – If you could redo a sequence of events it would be the small things that trip you up.
‘Scream’ (1996) – Why trusting the police is a bad idea
‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ (1993)
‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day’ (1991) – More Arnie as terminator
‘Pump Up the Volume’ (1990) – A nice 80s style flashback to before the internet and social media took over the world.
‘Tango and Cash’ (1989) – Buddy cop film
‘Die Hard’ (1988) – Bruce Willis upstaged by his vest
This is not a complete list and I will probably remember at least as many films again the second I commit this to the internet – for example ‘The Usual Suspects’, ‘Hellboy 2’…
I intend to revisit this exercise in a year and see what it looks like then, it will probably be weirder.
As for what to answer work the next time they ask? I am not sure what the correct answer was but the person who answered ‘Office Space’ doesn’t seem to be employed anymore.
