I am up and being functional, so I feel like doing another weekend entertainment.

Taking from the suggestion box, and provided by [personal profile] exiled_heir_of_the_eighth :

What would your pup/pups' favorite film be?

And I'll add, if you can't think of a specific film, what genres or directors might they like?

Just pulling from what's on my own shelves here because otherwise I can't narrow anything down, and imagining I set the characters loose amongst them:

Harry Monmouth likes Master and Commander. Fighting, humor, English glory. He'd have a bit of a cry over some of the deaths, and consider that he'd had an excellent good time.

Feuilly has seen High Noon and loved it, and I think he'd be very interested in The Third Man and Grand Illusion--he'd be pleased with how the solidarity of socialism pulls together allies in Pride--but obviously The Battle of Algiers would end up getting his vote and he'd invite Enjolras over for a very very serious screening.

Ursula would love Spirited Away.

William Douglas would fall in love with Seven Samurai, especially if it was dubbed into Scots. He would find some of the characters #relatable.

Bossuet is so torn between Young Frankenstein and Some Like it Hot. SO TORN YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND. He's gonna make Joly watch them both a bunch of times, with My Beautiful Laundrette sandwiched in there for something a little more serious. Aaaand then maybe they'd settle on Casablanca.

Mary of Guelders would certainly enjoy the Cocteau Belle et la Bête...and I think Djehuty would end up joining her there, although he might settle on Totoro in the end. Some of the other movies are just a little too stressful for him.

Miguel has a lot of fun with The Man Who Would Be King. Later, somewhere in South America, he wonders why he kept getting this weird sense of déjà vu.

Gredya doesn't approve of watching movies.

Loki has a great time going through them all. He laughs at all the scenes in Thor and Avengers where Thor falls for his illusions--i mean seriously brother, every.single.time?--and skips the ends of both. Chinatown is a hit, as is the original Peter Cook/Dudley Moore Bedazzled; he can dig Rashomon; Dark City is fun...and then he just goes back and watches Thor fall for his illusions again.

Your Loki bit makes me wonder what our pups would think of their own canon and how they'd deal with canon-puncturing if they haven't been punctured already. Future DE?

Oooh, good thought! I'll add it to my list.

(I mean I doubt that would be Loki's real reaction, but...like...he would so totally want to watch his greatest hits. and skip the endings.)

(Oh man also I think you said something at one point about how Loki & Floki should meet and I meant to reply and maybe I didn't--but yes, they totally should, and any time you're feeling Floki-ish feel free to toss him at my dude.)
