  1. #7 – not very often
    #15 – relieved more than excited
    #23 – I do still read reviews
    #24 – not really

    All others guilty as charged!

    Other suggestions:

    You have movie posters or stills on your walls rather than conventional art. (for me its: Casablanca in the lounge, Pulp Fiction and Three colours Red in my bedroom and various movie stills on the wall up the stairs.)

    If you want to see a movie that no one else wants to see you happily go on your own.


    • I cannot believe I forgot what you suggested as I have movie stills and posters up.

      Also I more than happily go to the cinema alone if I am the only one who wants to see a movie.


  2. hahaha wow every single one of these applies to me except for 4 & 15, both of which sound location specific (no Cineworld or Orange where I live).

    22 is ESPECIALLY relevant – i actually don’t mind not liking a film now, because I know I can tear it to shreds in a review

    And both of Fandangogroovers apply as well – I have Memento, The Shawkshank Redemption, Casino Royale, Fight Club, Alien and Kill Bill Volume 1 in my bedroom (and The Dark Knight “why so serious” poster in my closet)


  3. “Hi, my name is Aiden.”
    “Hell, Aiden.”
    “Hi. Um…I’m a movie addict.”
    ::everyone gets out of their seats to give a resounding standing O while raising the roof::
    “Hell yeah!”
    ::Aiden gives high tens all around. It’s awesome::

    Proud to have a problem. Great list, man.
