Day 19: Best Onscreen Kiss

I'll have you know I resisted the urge to use The Grifters in this category and you can all thank me for that. (Both for spoiler reasons and for... um, yeah...)

Instead, I'll go with the blindingly obvious.

Morticia and Gomez: the greatest love story ever told.

Day 18: A Film You Wish They'd Never Been Involved In

(I'm using the 'day' part of this meme loosely. As in 'Day: Whenever I Get To The Next Topic In Sequence'.)

I find this topic slightly cruel; not everything can be an undeniable work of art. And John Cusack once explained his presence in Con Air (a film I unashamedly love, truth be told) by saying that you make the big blockbuster movie to finance all the little indie gems you're dying to film. They can't all be exquisite and little-seen works of unique vision or gritty ground-breaking noir or whatever. And I enjoy Anjelica's performance and presence in just about everything - no lie, now. For serious. But there are one or two... you know...

Okay, I'll just say it.

I would also put Daddy Day Care in this category.

Day 16: Favorite Leading Role

(You're tiring me out, meme. You kind of keep asking the same questions. AND I JUST KEEP PICKING THE GRIFTERS. You're forcing me to do something totally radical, meme. Remember that you asked for this.)

This isn't Anjelica. But doesn't it LOOK like her? I think she would have made (would still make) a really quite unbelievably sinister Jadis. No disrespect at all to Tilda Swinton who was by far my favorite part of the recent Narnia movie. All I'm saying is... doesn't this look eerily like Anjelica? Or perhaps isn't this a bizarre photoshop mystery? As far as I'm aware she's never played the White Witch but if she had it would be a leading role and it would be singularly awesome. And since the White Witch is my favorite Narnia character... Look, it's weird is all I'm saying.

You made me do it, meme. Because I can't pick The Grifters for everything. It's like denouncing everything else she's done which is equally brilliant. And yet... The Grifters! I hate you, meme. You're like a Teen Beat questionnaire. You're so pointless and repetitive and yet I... can't... look away... must know... Joe from NKTOB's... favorite... color!
