We quizzed Maude to give you a little taste of her movie and TV tastes.

What was the first movie you saw in theaters?

The Little Mermaid. I loved the movie so much, I still love it as much today. The movie had a profound impact on me, from taking up singing and joining the Australian Youth Choir as a kid, to having a very specific type when it comes to men: Helllooooo, Prince Eric. Hey! He’s a dog person, OK!?”

What movie do you think should have won Best Picture but never did?

Lost in Translation from the 2003 Academy Awards. I’m a massive nerd, so the fact that it lost to Lord of the Rings: Return of the King was spectacular, but my goodness, Lost in Translation is practically a perfect movie. The unusual but endearing concept, the effortless feeling of the writing, the wonderful chemistry between Scarlett Johansson and Bill Murray – this was the superior film of that year to me.”

Tell us a TV series you’d normally never admit you love.

The Circle and even Love is Blind. I don’t usually like reality TV at all! But there’s something about these that focus on it being a ‘social experiment’ that has me hooked. The first episode of The Circle I felt utterly annoyed by every single person. By the end of the series – which came for me a mere 24 hours later! – I would have jumped in front of a bullet for them. That, my friend, is great TV.”

What’s a Rotten movie you love?

Meet Joe Black. That was peak Brad Pitt for me. The concept is ridiculous, but for me, it’s a powerful love story which also tackles strong family themes. I can watch Brad Pitt eat peanut butter off a spoon all day. We were also gifted with the gif where he walks across the street and gets tossed between cars like a rag doll.”

Marvel or DC?

“True to my nerdom, this is a very loaded question and such a broad stroke that cannot merely be answered with one or the other. TV Shows? DC. Movies? Marvel. Comics? DC. Characters? Marvel. Do not make me choose.”

Friends or The Office?

Friends! The Office pioneered the shaky cam and my nausea never recovered. Friends had forever quotable moments and such distinct characters that became your family.”
