I am incredibly honored to have been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger award. Thank you so much to Jason’s Movie Blog for nominating me. Make sure you check out his blog. He is very active and incredibly insightful.
The rules for the Sunshine Blogger Award are as follows:
1. Post the award on your blog
2. Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you
3. Answer 11 questions that have been assigned to you
4. Nominate 11 deserving bloggers for the award
5. Ask 11 questions to your nominees
Question #1: Favorite Movie of 2016?
Answer: It has been a rough year. Too many films have been lackluster, but I really enjoyed seeing this indie flick called Sing Street. It has some great characters and a fantastic soundtrack as well. I wish more people would see this film because it really surprised me.
Question #2: Favorite Movie of 2015?
Answer: On my top 10 list of 2015 I said Spotlight was the best film of the year, but my favorite film has to be The End of the Tour. This film stars Jason Segel and Jesse Eisenberg and both of them deliver spectacular performances. It is a small film with a seemingly insignificant plot, but I find it incredibly relatable. If you have not seen it yet and have Amazon Prime, do yourself a favor and watch it immediately.
Question #3: Best Movie Ending?
Answer: This is legitimately a tough question. I am going to go with an ending that never fails to lift my spirits. An ending that a good amount of people ridicule for no good reason. That is the ending to Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. There is something beautiful about how this film comes full circle when it ends. I think it is a spectacular way to wrap up each of the individual characters’ stories while also ending one of the best film trilogies of all time.
Question #4: Favorite Disney Animated Movie?
Answer: I will go with The Lion King. It is an absolute classic that everyone should have seen/should see.
Question #5: Most Disappointing Movie?
Answer: Spider-Man 3. I’m a huge fan and the film was pretty bad. It had some solid aspects, but I remember leaving the theater in denial at how bad it was.
Question #6: Favorite Food to Eat?
Question #7: What is your favorite book?
Answer: Lord of the Rings.
Question #8: What is your favorite vacation you took?
Answer: I will be quite honest, I do not remember. Perhaps it was when I was in Middle School and traveled to Serbia. I have not been on a “full-on” vacation in a while, so nothing really pops to mind.
Question #9: What is your biggest regret in life?
Answer: I’d say probably slacking off during the latter-half of High School. But anything that I have ever regretted, I have made amends in some way.
Question #10: Disney World or Universal Studios?
Answer: Universal Studios.
Question #11: How are you going to take your blog to the next “level”?
This is a great question because I have been slacking a bit on my blog. I am going back to college soon which means I will not be able to be up to date with film reviews (I am still not really up to date, but I am trying). This will give me time to start reviewing films that have been released before. I will also try to write more “opinionated pieces” and try to shake up the format and design of my blog.
Again, Jason’s Movie Blog, thank you so much for nominating me. It really means a lot. Sadly I do not know many people on wordpress that I can nominated, so I will cut down the 11 nominations to only 1. In the future I will try to be more active on wordpress and communicate with other bloggers.
