I love movies. Can watch any filth , according to some sources..I think that's true, on an average .. I have watched some of the slowest movies in the history of world cinema ((I am talking about those award-winning movies that take 10 minutes to focuss on a crow on top of a tree )and quite enjoyed it .. Well , almost !!
Vimmuuu tagged me asking me to list out some of my movie-related quirks .. Here i go ..
## I can never get myself to watch a spooky ghost movie alone.I start seeing imaginary creatures and ghosts yanking my hair/ shirt from behind . which technically is not possible as there is a wall behind my couch which could make it difficult for ghosts to stand behind me .. but then it is me !!
## I routinely and compulsorily cry during and after every rom-com i see. I must admit i see quite a lot of them. I wear a scarf so that nobody can actually catch me during the act of sobbing my heart out in the movie theatre..Yeah ,it works !!
## I refuse to sit in corner seats at movie theatres.I always imagine rats and miscellaneous rodents clawing at my feet and other parts of me.
This behaviour can be attributed to 2 horrendous rodents hopping on me on 2 separate occassions. One rodent-hopping incident happened was when i was watching a oscar-type flick in South Indian film chambers theatre which is dingy,dirty and musty.It is the kind of place that provides safe haven for rodent-romeos to have free movie dates with rodent-females .I used to go there as they screen classics and foreign language movies for free.. I would even drink phenyl, if they gave it free.. ;-)
The other rodent spotting was at a theatre called "Grand" , which was anything but grand and used to be the only theatre in the neighbourhood that played engliss movies when i was a kid. This theatre , "apparently"went on to become a porn-lover's-paradise (heresay , folk !) and later got demolished.Let those rodents RIP. Amen!
##I insist on being home every friday at 11:00PM to watch world movies.i think i am going to miss it this week as i am travelling. I should have gotten myself Tata sky plus the minute i saw Aamir and Gul panag in that ad.. Arent they a cute couple ? i mean ad-couple ?
## I love fake dvds.. I abhor plagiarism and think that it's the biggest evil that's gripped our society. I also feel bad for the producers.. but, how else can i afford a dvd that costs Rs.699 only for the legal version.The same God that made me poor told me that it's ok to watch fake dvds to quench my thirst for knowledge..
## If there is a mildly explicit scene (like the one in a tam movie where the hero and heroine kiss behind a flower .. No , they dont show the lip-lock.. just a pink flower swaying) when i am watching a flick with my parents, i always walk out to get a bottle of water or something..I am really bashful about these thing.. I also hate people necking in theatres and have picked up fights with them ..
Actually , you cant call these quirks , can you .. these are normal responses to abnormal incidents in a normal person's life .. what say ?
