friday 5: setting the scene

questions from f.riday5.com today. On these it was easier to think of my favorite films, and go backwards!

What’s your favorite film set in space?
Galaxy Quest

What’s your favorite film set at sea?
Moana

What’s your favorite film set in a non-U.S. city?
Amadeus (Vienna! The city of music)

What’s your favorite film set before the 20th Century?
Oh darn I already said Amadeus. I think everyone should see Babette's Feast. What if for the last one I said Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Rings, since it's set in Middle Earth?

What’s your favorite film set on a university campus?
For this one I cheated and googled, because most university films are awful. But I found some good ones:
Legally Blonde
Good Will Hunting
Mona Lisa Smile
Monsters University

If I had to pick a "stereotypical" raunchy college comedy, Van Wilder sometimes makes my guilty pleasure list.
