Houdini's Magic Ticket

Dan from www.top10films.co.uk recently started a great blogathon that you should check out, it's wonderful! http://www.top10films.co.uk/archives/8591/comment-page-5#comment-37359

Basically, if you can get a magic ticket transporting you anywhere you want, what would you do with it?

What animated feature would you love to walk around in?

I've never been a huge animation movie fan, but I remember growing up and seeing Beauty and the Beast and Snow White over and over again! If I'd have to choose, Beauty&Beast wins just for the great songs and great characters!

If you were a cop who would you want as a partner?
Are you kidding me? Mark Whalberg any time night and day! He is one bad ass mother f***er!Loved him in this movie! He might be evil, the bad cop, and he gets the job done!

What character would you most want to enjoy a passionate romance with?

This is probably the hardest one! Being a rather sensible, romantic girl, there are so many to choose!Trying to remember the best romance movies I have seen, I can't really say that I would like to have a passionate fling with either of them! I love Dirty Dancing, The Notebook, Legends of the fall, but I wouldn't like to be involved with Patrick Swayze. So it comes down to Ryan Gosling or Brad Pitt- considering we are talking about character and not actor, I guess I have to choose....no, I won't, I can't!
Oh, I know, I got it!
Have you guys ever seen Country Strong? I would love to get a guy like Beau Hutton, tall, sweet, deep voice, guitar man, who I can have a quiet night at home! Garrett Hedlund all the way!
See, you are getting the romantic side out of me! It's so cheesy sometimes! :)

What movie gadget would you love to try out?

That's easy, the Dolerean time machine! You can guess why...I would just borrow it for a couple of journey back in time, during the 1800s England and one in the future; wonder how I will look like!

What film's plot would you alter and how would you do it?

Hard to say, I don't usually have the need to change the plot. I think the only time I remember it to happen has the end of American History X; I was so furious about what happened and I wished I could change something! But I couldn't really say how I would alter it! No inspiration here, sorry!

What one film would you most want to be transported into, simply to be a part of that world?

Again, not a surprise here, but I love the Harry Potter world and the movies are really good!In some points, even better then the books (horror, I know)!

That's my take!Hope you liked it!


  1. Great choice for a film you'd like to be transported into. I think Harry Potter is a world I wouldn't mind spending some time in myself. There's good and bad, magic and mayhem, but in the end, most people live happily ever after.

    As you know I also chose Beauty and the Beast for animated feature - such a great film.

  2. Nice idea from Dan! But don't change the end of AHX! It's an absolute killer ending!

  3. @Dan: thanks for the idea, it was fun doing it!
    @Pturner1010: the ending is very powerful and mindblowing, but I just said what I felt in that moment; I agree it was great for the film, but I was so furious that I wished I could do something about it!

  4. Hi Aziza,

    Nice list! Good pick there with Wahlberg, he was funny as a cop in The Other Guys as well.

    The HP world is enchanting too, I just wouldn't want to be transported towards the end when Hogwarts got attacked! :)

  5. Interesting selections. I should make the time to complete this too.

  6. Fun and interesting answers Aziza! Glad you got join in on the fun. Mark Whalberg was one BAMF in The Departed! He is a great pick. And nothing like the world of Harry Potter (which I also chose) as the ultimate movie universe to be transported into :)

  7. Chalk up another person clogging up Diagon Alley! LOL!!

    Some great choices here Aziza!

  8. @Ruth: Thanks Ruth! Mark Whalberg is bad ass no matter what movie he is in! The last scenes in HP are sad,but still great!

    @Andy: Well, they're not the most original ones, but I had fun doing it! You should try it, too!

    @Castor: Oh, mister Caster, film blog royalty dropping by to comment- I am very lucky!:) Thanks! Glad you liked it!

    @Rodney: By the time this blogathon is over, the Diagon Alley will be full! Thanks!
