I’m thrilled that so many bloggers have joined the Movie Confessions blogathon. As I’m writing this close to 80 entries (including mine) have been posted and I’m still working my way through each and every one of them to comment on. I’m just stunned by success of this blogathon and happy you’ve all enjoyed this so much. Of course you can still send me new entries, I will keep updating the post.
Thank you all for participating and making it such a big success.
With so many confessions I was interested to see if there were some similarities between them and I’ve compared some of the questions (please note that when I calculated the statistics below there were about 75 entries), which has resulted in some interesting results.
When it comes to classic movies you don’t like, the winner is Gone With the Wind (14% of you), followed closely by 2001: A Space Oddyssey (10%). Others that were mentioned several times were Citizen Kane, Blade Runner, Apocalypse Now, 8 1/2, Godfather, Psycho and Spartacus. Just shows that not everyone agrees about classics.
I was surprised by the amount of people that have sneaked into another movie, 41% of you have done this! No wonder Hollywood is doing so badly 😉
As for overrated actors and actresses, the clear winners were Johny Depp (7%), George Clooney (6%), Will Ferrell(6%) for the actors and Meryl Streep and Angelina Jolie (both 6%) for the actresses.
Of the big directors Kurosawa (13%) was mentioned most, followed closely by Bergman(11%), Fellini (7%) and Chaplin 7%).
So what are your thoughts on these results? Did anything shock you?
