Which Film Would You Want Played At Your Funeral?

Okay, so they don't play films at funerals; but if they did, what film would you show at yours? Everyone who's ever known you is gathered - whether this is in a church, or in a gathering afterwards (you know that thing everyone goes to and makes small talk until there are no more prawn sandwiches). Everybody is there, and rather than everyone listening to a song and saying "Wow, Dancing Queen really reminds me of Johnny..." instead of a song, it's a movie - you only get one..


What film would it be? And would you allow popcorn?

Care to share?

  2. This is a good question Kid. It'd be so hard to pick. I think I'd go with Kore-eada's After Life.

  3. Life is Beautiful, Forrest Gump, The Lion King or Shawshank Redemption.


    or on a lighter note, Weekend at Bernie's....

  4. What a thoughtful idea. The first thing that comes to mind is The English Patient: just so lush and perfect...even though I'm not a romantic or The Big Chill for that joie de vivre. On a purely twisted level though I'd like to go out with a bang and pick something off kilter like Fight Club or The Shining.

  5. I would most certainly allow popcorn. With butter, because I'm dead and I never ate butter on my popcorn while alive, it's so unhealthy, but what would I care once I'm gone?
    The film I would play would be "Love Actually." I would have them make everyone stay and watch it. It's got lovely sad parts to allow for the tears, funny parts to relieve the saddness and hopeful romantic parts to remind people to keep on living everyday they've got left. Always go the extra step, take the leap, make a fool of yourself because it wouldn't be living if we didn't.

  6. GOODFELLAS.

    That would be totally kickass.

    And, popcorn. Definitely popcorn. With lots and lots of butter.

  7. Tough question. The first film that comes to mind is Waking Ned Devine. One of my favourite films :)

    Popcorn is most certainly aloud!

  10. If it were a film that would represent me as a film nerd, it would be Citizen Kane because that's been my favorite movie since I saw it for the first time at age 11.

    However, because I would have a captive audience who would pretty much have to be there, I would pick something that I think people SHOULD see that they normally wouldn't, so I would go with Eraserhead and leave people guessing what the hell I was thinking.
