Questions by Lauren
1. What book would you recommend for me to read and why?
Definitely not Twilight… LOL. You should check out True Blue by David Baldacci, it’s a good thriller.
2. What is your favourite post you’ve written on your blog and why?
Difficult one… but my favorite is my review on The Great Gatsby (2013). I awarded the movie with an A despite the criticism by many critics who obviously gave it a lower grade.
3. Star Wars v.s Star Trek-which is best?
Oh c’mon, we all know Star Wars is the best!
4. Who would play you in the film version of your life?
Pierce Brosnan (we got the same haircut) if it has to be a celebrity. If not, it’s gotta be moi.
5. What TV show or film do you watch when you’re feeling down?
That would be Smallville or Kyle XY.
6. What’s your favourite Disney film?
7. What song sums up the day you’ve had today?
My Immortal by Evanescence. Don’t worry, I didn’t lose someone dear to me today. I thought it’s worth mentioning, because it’s such a beautiful song.
8. Do you believe in fate or free will?
Everyone has control over his or her own life, but some things are just waiting for you, but then I believe one can change this path. So yes, I believe in free will.
9. Are you a cynic, optimistic or realist when it comes to life?
When it comes to life? Good one. I’d tag myself as an idealist.
10. Do you believe in ghosts?
Ehmm… even though I am obsessed with everything supernatural, I don’t always believe in them.

That would be The Wolverine for sure!
