Under Review 2 - Should I complain?

Well, this was unplanned, but it does sort of tie into my original post on reviews.

It all started when I dropped by James Goodman's blog and found the "which classical movie are you?" quiz.

Of course, I answered the maximum number of questions, so this should be fairly accurate. Even the test says I'm all about doing the right thing.

So, I decided to do the "which leader are you?" test, and I must say, I'm SHOCKED that this result is even on there. Mortified. In fact, I think somebody should complain.

Now I must apply my drive and determination to do the right thing, and figure out what that is and then begin a campaign.

Seriously, I know these things are for fun, but it did surprise me that they had this result in there.

Now, are you guys shocked? Should I complain? I am offended. Okay, the write up is kind of funny for a crime writer, but still. Or would complaining be over-reacting?

If I can figure out a way to moon Joe online, I might just be there.

Now, the real post of the day...


Trace said...

Wow, that sounds like a really good chat to be at. I'll try to make it.

For The Trees said...

**I** don't think you ought to complain. Why waste your energy, when you could be having so much more fun tearing things up here on your blog?


BTW I've slandered you something fierce over on my blog. Sorry.

Sandra Ruttan said...

Well, thanks Forrest. I guess I'm the only one shocked?

And usually on my blog, I'm tearing things off...

Love the slander. You take a whip to me any time.

Stephen D. Rogers said...


Ditto "Mr Smith."

As to leader? Ghandi. So there! ;)


Sandra Ruttan said...

You're such a great person Stephen.

And obviously, I'm not! But I think I make a better mystery writer judging from the results.

Vincent said...

I got 'Easy Rider' and 'Abe Lincoln'. Oddly enough, I'm not sure if I prefer being a 'mild-mannered assassination victim' to a paranoid leader who finds killing all their enemies relieves anxiety.

James Goodman said...

wow, those are some interesting results, Sandra. :D I am a little shocked that hitler would be on there as well.

JT Ellison said...

I love those crazy exercises. My movies were twofold -- The short list of questions had me as the Godfather. The longer list was Schindler's List.
Famous Leader -- Ghandi.
Someone out there thinks I'm a giving, loving perfectionsist who adheres to the standards of loyalty expected from the mob. I am 2nd generation Italian.... Hmmm...
Thanks Sandra, I needed mindless this morning:)

Boy Kim said...

Why shouldn't Hitler be on there?

Ok, so some of his policies were totally unacceptable but there's no denying he is famous.

But that doesn't mean you shouldn't complain if you feel it is offensive.

Mary said...

Film : Mr Smith goes to Washington
Leader : Ghandi

I guess that makes me the female Stephen D Rogers!

Steven said...

I got Easyrider and Abe Lincoln - mild mannered assassination victim. Is that really better?

I suppose.

I think complaining would place more importance on the test than it is worth. I've never even seen Easyrider.

Kate said...

If you merely complain that shows your not Hitlerish. If you kill them it may make you feel better but would prove them right.

I got Gandhi and Raiders of the Lost Ark. I must have a split personality.

Eileen said...

Although I don't know you well I never once saw you as sort of Hitler like. Loved the tests.

Sandra Ruttan said...

LOL Kate!

Eileen, it's because I don't have a moustache.

Bonnie Calhoun said...

Oh, LOL...sorry about your leader result...LOL!

For my movie result I got Al Pachino....I am the Godfather...ROFLMAO!!!

Sela Carsen said...

I took the tests, but then my connection weirded out so I couldn't reply. I got Sunset Blvd (!) and Bill Clinton(!!!) Um, self-absorbed, much?
