I like to watch movies over and over. No, seriously. Over, and over, and over again. Only some of them. I never get tired of a movie I love, and since I love them so much I need to see every little detail about it. Maybe that's why I have a career in production, who knows. I also do it with television series- I must have watched the whole Friends series about ten times. My roommate probably thinks I'm crazy when she hears the opening credits song every night during dinner. I've watched Lost in Translation about thirty times, and even went to some of the places they go to in the movie when I was in Japan. My geek-hood doesn't stop there.
My latest obsession in the movie department was "Chungking Express", two love stories that take place in Hong Kong. I rented it a few weeks ago, and got to keep it for a week, so obviously I watched it about three times. I sadly returned it, then this weekend I felt like seeing it again, so I decided it would be better to just buy it. Unfortunately, the local film store sells it for 50$ since it's from a special collection. WHAT??! Anyways, I just went back to the video store to rent it, I'd rather pay 3$ for now. The clerk at the counter said: "It says here you rented it already a few weeks ago". I quickly mumbled: "Oh, I didn't get around to watch it". I lied!! I was embarrassed!!! Is there a rule that doesn't allow you to watch a movie over and over? I know there isn't, but I felt like I got caught in my little 'watching over and over' act. Embarrassing!! That's what you get for paying 3$.
What are your quirks??
