what do you think your characters' favorite movies would be (guilty pleasures included)?
OK I LOVE THIS QUESTION AND I’VE BEEN HOLDING OFF ON ANSWERING IT SO I COULD GIVE IT SOME SERIOUS THOUGHT
so santi’s favorite movies are akira and godzilla (only the original godzilla, although he did like shin godzilla that came out last year, but otherwise he gets very heated about the remakes and sequels, especially the one starring matthew broderick…don’t even bring that one up) he was also obsessed with jurassic park when he was a kid and wanted to become a paleontologist until he found out that paleontologists don’t actually get to meet real dinosaurs. he’s a geek ass so star wars of course. i feel like he would probably like green room too. oh and the goonies. hmmm what else…probably spider-man (2002)…scooby-doo 2: monsters unleashed…bad movies that are fun to watch. oh and when he gets really high he watches mary-kate and ashley movies. his favorite is the one where they go to the bahamas.
gianni is the hardest because i feel like he would like a lot of obscure foreign films or weird surrealist films. like probably el topo or the holy mountain until he found out how shitty of a person alejandro jodorowsky is. omfg wait i watched swiss army man recently and just thought of santixgianni the whole time. he would definitely like that one. OH I JUST REMEMBERED i decided a while ago that his fave is fantastic mr. fox. oooooh and big fish. OH and definitely lord of the rings i mean c’mon. and he’s probably a slut for david lynch too so u know eraserhead and blue velvet. aversely, he probably watches a lot of ridiculously over the top action movies (probably like the fast & furious series lmao) because he finds it interesting how desensitizing they are. OH AND he and santi definitely binge watch the road warrior/mad max series together every so often hell yea.
rooney is probably so easy to please omg. her favorite movie is defffffinitely amélie hehe. she loves anything ghibli/miyazaki, and wes anderson as well. she also went through a huge tarantino phase in her teen years when she tried to be edgy and walk around paris smoking hand rolled cigarettes out of those long fancy audrey hepburn cig holders u know what i mean. she also likes movies that radiate existential happiness and philosophical reflections on life, like almost famous, beginners, 20th century women, captain fantastic, those kinda optimistic, relationship-oriented storylines. oh and whip it because she’s always dreamed of becoming a roller derby girl ;-;
lou is probably a movie junkie. all she does is sit at home and watch movies and tv with fiona lmao (when she’s not babysitting santi) for that reason she’s seen everything and is a huge critic but will still watch anything even though she’ll complain about every gripe she has with it. her taste is kinda hard to pinpoint…i feel like she would like mysteries and maybe even sci-fi films. a lot of old film noirs as well. i mean u just know mildred pierce is her shit. gone girl and ex machina also come to mind. and she would like room and where the wild things are ;-; she’s also a sucker for tragedies (go figure) and kubrick films.
