Same here. The more recent titles on the list I saw when I was going to see every movie. I'm glad I don't do that now, not so much because of the bad movies that are out (they can be guilty pleasures) but because it's nice to actually be able to save some money for a change. :P
Not to mention the times when the guy I was dating a few years ago insisted on going to lots of movies that didn't interest me and I went along because I hadn't figured out yet that this was a major difference between us . . .
How can what movies you like be a major difference between you? I couldn't imagine, for example, that our taste in movies had anything to do with Riin's split from me (besides, although I like some movies she doesn't, I also like pretty much all the movies she does like and some, like Monty Python and the Holy Grail are in the list of personal favorites for us both... I just have a wider taste in movies than her ;)).

OTOH, Riin and I had radically different taste in music, but I didn't think that had anything to do with our break, either...

Just curious, because taste in movies seems like an odd thing to list as a "major difference."

Ah, OK. That makes more sense.

Hm... I wonder if a similar attitude played any part in Riin's breakup with me...?

I certainly hope not, since I did quit going to the movies because of her and, even to this day, I'm thankful she got me out of that crap...

  1. I'm pleased (not being a fan of the movie culture at all, and very selective about what I watch at home from the library) to say that my number is 19... :D

    And I don't have a blog, so I thought I'd say so here.

  2. Hmm, let's see: Rocky Horror Picture Show, Grease, Blazing Saddles, Airplane, The Wedding Singer, Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1978), Along Came Polly, Sixteen Candles, Cujo, ET, Children of the Corn, Forrest Gump, K-Pax, Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (I think it was that one), Star Wars (I saw three, I think, and I'm guessing they were The Phantom Menace, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi -- I thought that was all that there were), Troop Beverly Hills, Blue Velvet, Sound of Music, The Birds, The Silence of the Lambs. Hmm, that seems to be 22. Oh well, still a respectably low score :)

    I'd like to note that at least half of these were seen two or more decades ago, when my standards were certainly different... Not to mention the times when the guy I was dating a few years ago insisted on going to lots of movies that didn't interest me and I went along because I hadn't figured out yet that this was a major difference between us -- koff-K-Pax-koff-Lord-of-the-Rings-koff-Along-Came-Polly-koffkoff!

  3. It wasn't our *taste* in movies that was a significant difference, it was that he wanted to participate in the moviegoing and moviewatching ritual on a frequent basis, whereas I consider it to be an objectionable aspect of the culture which I prefer to boycott with only rare and purposeful exceptions.
