Last Friday, we had a little trip to the movies, in a random round about way. Today, we are back there, looking for clarity, and hopefully picking up a few points along the way. I got them all right and received maximum pointage, but I’m not one to brag.
I’ll start with the bonus question, which, I suppose, would have been quite difficult to get correct…
Excellent if you correctly thought that the first movie I didn’t appear in was Green Lantern. The skin tight clothing didn’t really agree with me… if you did think this (Green Lantern, not me in tight clothing – Heavens to Murgatroyd!) you may have one point! You may have been thinking too logically about this question if you were incorrect – remember, logic and this blog don’t necessarily go hand in hand.
For some reason, most of you recognised me as that blue chap in Avatar. Although we have completely different eyes, we do seem to have a similar nose to each other. And my forehead markings took hours in make-up to get right! Again, it’s one point for the blue chap out of Avatar.
I do make a good vampire, even if I do say so myself. If you said I was being Keanu Reeves in The Lost Boys I’m afraid I’d have to deduct a point. I was Kiefer Sutherland, of course! Of course! If you said Kiefer, you can have the point.
Next up was indeed a tricky one. I wasn’t Miss Piggy out of the Muppet Show movies, so no points if you’d said that… however, there’s a whole point available for you if you’d have correctly said I was the Lion out of the Wizard of Oz. I did that through the medium of time travel, obviously. I wasn’t around in those days.
Do you remember Sam from Quantum Leap? Each week he’d leap into someone else’s body and have to alter their course of life before leaping once again. Sometimes, he’d leap into a woman’s body, and this seems to be a bit like that. I was Carrie Fisher in Star Wars here, if you couldn’t tell. She had been written in to play C3P0 but I steered her into the Princess role. I did. I did! And you may have a point if you said Carrie. Or Princess Leia! And I’ll let you have a point if you said C3P0 as well – but only a select group of people know that. Sshhh…
Last but not least, I was that well known superhero, Superman. Being a superhero isn’t new to me, but being Superman is. Was. Is still. One point if you’d said Superman, or any of the great actors who have played him over the years. I’m nothing if not a little generous!
And you can have a bonus point if you’d correctly said that it was Mae West who said the quote in Fingers’ (he’s my Inner Typist, don’t you know?) Easter Eff.
And speaking of Easter Effs, who said this:
If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading
If this is your first visit to this blog… hello! Don’t worry – it’s not always like this! Lately, I’ve been posting a ‘portrait’ on a Monday, and then a post which is kind-of-but-not-quite linked to it on the following Tuesday. Yesterday’s portrait was of a rainbow – and the pictures within this post are in a similar layout to the colours on a rainbow. Kind of. Maybe if you scroll up and down really fast you may see it. This post is more linked to Friday’s post, which I mentioned at the beginning.
No, sometimes it’s a little strange around here… and other times it’s like this. I’m used to it…
