Movies and Me

23 Apr

Was tagged by Xylene on Movie Quirks. Didnt realize I had so many…

Here goes:

1. Dont like going to movies mainly because of the crowds.. I hate jostling with strangers…

2. I hate it when people saunter into the hall after the movie starts AND THEN stand in the middle trying to find their seats.. AND THEN have an argument about who gets which seat…

3. I want MY OWN pop corn. No sharing. Even with junior.

4. I eat pop corn by the fistfull

5. I don’t like movies that make me think and/or analyze.. give me slapstick anytime…3 Stooges, Marx Brothers

6. I always analyze any stranger who comes and sits next to me.Corrolary… do not like sitting next to strangers… prefer middle seat… link back to point #1

7. Nowadays I think that the people behind me are staring at my growing bald patch…

8. I go to the movies mainly to eat…a point that my wife does not agree with… (fortunately son does).

9. Mobile Phones @##@$$@!%

    That is why they have invented dvd players 😉
    And samosa take-outs. We (I insisted)drove to Pittsburgh to watch Jodha Akbar and maaan, was it ever worth it! That woman is just gorgeous and beautiful. So what if she cannot act 😉 ?

    @Veena: Went to TZP because Nikhil wanted to watch it with me (“will teach parents some lessons” he said….. Was a good movie… What I meant was I prefer slapstick… doesnt mean I dont watch other types of movies

    Vijay : Add another – people behind keep kicking your seat backrest and its infuriating, to say the least, although I LOVE watching movies in the theatres – atleast one gets uninterrupted viewing – which usually doesn’t happen at home.

    @My3: Done.. will instruct assistant…

    @Nalini: How could I have forgotten that !!!!! I always seem to have a seat in front of a person who has no control over their “kicking” legs…
