Several years ago, I was fighting a bout of insomnia. I turned on the TV and started watching a movie on Showtime I had never heard of it. The name of the movie was Chasing Amy. Although I enjoyed it, I never really thought about owning it. Pretty much the exact same thing happened the first time I saw Dogma. Recently a movie was released on DVD that I really did not have much interest in seeing. The name of that movie is Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. And because of this release, there has been a lot of talk about Clerks and Mallrats. These two movies, for some reason I never saw. Never had any interest in seeing. I can’t explain it… that’s just the way it is. Now, there are a few HTF members that I talk to outside of the forum (I know I know it’s hard to believe but it’s true). One in particular was extremely excited over the release of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Because of this (and the fact that I have no will power) I was sucked into his bizarre and wacky world of fancy (he also accounts for my recent desire to start watching Anime but that’s another story). I of course took his suggestion and went berserk. Being the obsessive compulsive that I am I just HAD to watch all the movies in order before watching Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. This of course meant I had to buy them all (I don’t rent any more, sometimes borrow but not rent). I must point out he was lucky enough to be able to share a few words with my wife about my recent spending spree. I understand he held his own…way to go dude! I just finished Clerks and Mallrats and thoroughly enjoyed them. The dialogue in them was hilarious. Man I tell you if I had friends like that… well I’d probably be in jail. Next I will watch Chasing Amy and Dogma all the while looking forward to seeing Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Bottom line… I wanted to thank him for his suggestions. Thank you for your suggestions. So far they have all been on the money. Now I am looking forward to getting my recent purchase of the first four discs of Neon Genesis (yup, his recommendation). Tomorrow I will try to fit in Princess Mononoke. It’s almost like a whole new world has opened up for me (along with my wallet).
