Their collective Qs:

What would be your perfect day off?

Thor lost his hammer, where do you find it?
– Has he checked his pockets? Where’s the last place he remembers putting it?

If earth would be invaded by aliens, how would you save it?
– Throw water at them, sneeze on them and if that doesn’t work, give them a computer virus.

If a movie was made about your life, what genre would it be?
– Disaster movie.

What was your favourite subject in school?
– Always had a soft spot for science. Maths made me cry.

Have you ever been so mad at a movie that you couldn’t help but to yell at the screen

But seriously though, really liking the one shot scenes everyone seems to be doing these days.

Anime. Yes or No?
– Maybe.

Favorite sport?
– I b-ball so hard, motherfuckers wanna fine me.

Will movie theater watching ever completely die?
– What is dead may never die.

What role would you take on in a movie production (actor/actress, director, producer, composer, etc)?

What is one goal you’d like to accomplish in your lifetime?
– I wanna create an ad campaign that actually does good and makes the world a better place. Really love the Like A Girl ad campaign. Also, you seen that Dove ad where they labelled one door “Beautiful” and the other one “Average”? Interesting to see which door people choose to pass through.

What is your least favourite chore?
– Everybody hates washing up, right?

What is a franchise that you would like to see get put to bed?

One fact about yourself?
– Frogs scare the shit out of me.

What is the best thing to have happened to you in 2016 so far?
– Recently shot our first TV ad. It’s not the most creative shit we’ve come up with but would be pretty cool seeing it on TV.

If you could be a movie bad guy, which one would you be ?
– Heath Ledger’s Joker. I’ll just go around asking people if they wanna know how I got my scars, blowing up people called Rachel and burning money. Looks easy enough.

Favourite Disney Villain?
– You don’t have to look Ja-far to figure out who mine is. I’ll let myself out.

Will there ever be a truly great video game-to-film adaptation? Has there been one already?
– Nope, but I know of a truly great film-to-video game adaption… The Warriors.

What  do you admire most about the WordPress blogosphere?

What would you like to see your blog evolve into (if you want it to evolve)?
– A Charizard would be cool.

What advice would you give to someone who doesn’t know what they want to do in the future?
– Don’t rush it and give it time. Probably don’t compare your progress with other people, people progress at their own speed man. Completely had no idea what I wanted to do after graduating with a psychology degree. I literally googled “What can I do with a psychology degree.” Landed on advertising and it’s working out okay so far. You’ll be just fine.

      1. YES! Spent countless hours years ago playing it and it is one of the best things ever. I just got the game on my PS4 and oh my god… Besides the shitty PS2 graphics it’s the fucking bomb.com.

  1. THE ANSWERS

    How would you explain the colour blue to a blind person?
    It’s like a deep hue. Think dark, but then allow your mind to tint it just a tad lighter. And then some more and them some more. This colour, it makes you feel calm. That, my friend, is blue.
    If you could recast the MCU, who would you put where?
    Iron Man: Greg Kinnear. Nick Fury: Kevin Spacey. Natasha Romanova: Scarlett Johanssen is the best actress for this role.
    What’s a scene from a movie that made you cry the most? I won’t lie. I don’t often cry for movies. I think a movie is too short for me to get invested. I cry for series. Like, I cry every time I see the scene where Rachel (Friends) see that Ross was willing to take her to the prom. And then she walks over to him and kisses him, and Phoeboe says, “See, he’s her lobster.”
    Hit me with the best joke you’ve heard.
    Halloween is my favourite holiday. What are you guys dressing up this year? The Stig.
    What’s the best ad you’ve ever seen? (I’m intrigued). It’s a South African advert. The father comes over, asks the groom to dance with the bride (his daughter). You think it’ll be a slow dance, but it turns out to be a routine danced to He-Ya by OutKast. The ad is about living life to the fullest. It’s so cool!
    I’m running out of TV shows to watch, whatcha got? The Last Sip
    If you could talk to your 13 year old self, what would you say? “Find a form of escapism. ‘Coz you have no idea what’s coming.”
    What’s a film that changed your perspective on life/the world? No film.
    If money wasn’t a problem (wages and stuff), what job would you wanna do? What I’m doing now. I love language … editing, translating, proofreading. I’d still be doing what I’m doing. (More and more) on my own time.
    Tips and advice for new bloggers out there? (Speech, speech, speech) Make sure you’re not writing total cr@p.

    1. That ad sounds cute. Really? Not even the opening scene from Up? Now that’s how you make people cry in 10 mins aha Not writing total crap aha solid advice

  2. I am pleased to find out that I’m not the only one afraid of frogs. My friends say hate but I try to tell them that I’m not hating, just terrified! Why do they need a tongue that long? That noise is creepy and they can practically fly when they hop.

    1. Dude, completely forgot to nominate you as well! Would love to hear your answers. Ahaha it’s their slimy skin for me, just the thought of touching them. Urgggh. Fun fact: my mate’s once chased me down while holding a frog when we were younger.

  3. Love the post as usual my friend. And thank you for nominating me! Very cool answers. There’s some deepness in there and some humour. Deepnumour!

    I am not sure why everyone in the movie blogosphere hates J-Law, what’s she ever done to you?

    Great choice of best films – still need to see Ex Machina! ‘Her’ is bloody brill. But have you seen the viral video of the scene where Joaquin Phoenix’s furrowed brow does facial expressions?

    Watch this space for my answers, now I’m back from riding camels in Morocco I’ll be doing a nice communal post. Great new gravatar pic buddy!

    1. Thanks! And no worries! Aha deepnumour, love that.
      It’s not like “she pissed all over my kids” hate, more like “why is she nominated every time? That last one wasn’t even that good” hate. #Overrated
      Aha yeah, that was sooo jokes. You seen that SNL parody with Jonah Hill? Shit’s jokes too.
      That sounds awesome, you had a sick time? Aha thanks, I thought “you know what this picture needed? More open mouth.” Plus Ian McKellen hated the red hat. (Is this our inside joke now?)
      Looking forward to your answers!

      1. I kind of understand the frustration at the overratedness but I also understand the hype. So I just don’t know which side of the fence to stand on. I love the girl.

        I’ve not seen the Jonah Hill parody but I heard about it – I’ll check it out!

        Ian Mckellen will probably approve of the new photo buddy. Sequels are very rarely better than the original, too.
