    Do you use props to help set the mood when you watch your favorite films? For example, I'll get out my Turkish 8mm Mauser to hold across my lap when I watch Lawrence of Arabia. I have cointreau, brandy, and whiskey available during Casablanca. I have bottles of water available during Dune. I have my sword out for Henry V. And I have my .357 magnum on hand when I watch hard-boiled detective films like The Maltese Falcon.

    I try to have pizza every time I watch the begining of Deep Impact and my wife around every time I watch Nymph.

    I arrange with the morgue to deliver 7 corpses to my house every time I watch SE7EN.
    I hire a perky kid to booby trap my HT area when I watch Home Alone.
    I take off my shoes and bust my windows while swinging from a firehouse when I watch Die Hard.

    Nice one Dennis.
    Ok yeah when I watch my Showgirls dvd ...I'm wearing a thong and writhing suggestively all over the tv, until Sandra pops into the room sees what I'm doing and quickly bashes me over the head with a baseball bat, takes out the dvd and uses it as an ashtray while I lie there unconscience...
    When I watch the Godfather I stuff my mouth with orange peel stick a pillow up my jumper and mumble the lines along with Brando...
    When I watch Braveheart I wear my best kilt and at the bum waving bit I erm wave my bum at the tv, I'm usually alone in the room when I do this...
    Watching Gladiator gives me a chance to wear my favorite floral patterned toga and during the arena scenes I'm wrestling with Sandy on the rug, I get carried away sometimes and try to strangle her, but she usually wins the battle with a forward thrust towards my crotch, and I quickly give up, but Evil Hand doesn't want to give up and continues to grasp at her face and neck...[​IMG]

    All of a sudden, whenever I watch Hedwig and the Angry Inch, I have an urge to dress up like a woman. [​IMG]

    Hey blame Dennis for starting a thread where I can go nuts in.[​IMG]
    Come on Rain, I'm only 22, gorgeous and of sound mind (whatever that is), ask my nurse.[​IMG]

    Dennis - Ignore these unappreciative heathens! I think you're a genius (or at least have got a nifty idea).
    I'd never thought about that before, but a themed movie presentation party could be fun. I'll have to try that out.

    I was watching Requiem for a Dream, but then I sold my TV for drug money...

    Yep, Terminator or T-2, always wreaks havoc in my HT, it's getting expensive buying a new TV everytime I blow it away with my Shotgun!

    I make sure to wear my white jumpsuit with the explosive bloodbags sewn in when I watch my copies of John Woo's Hard Boiled and The Killer.
    It is very therapeutic and relaxing twhen the bags go off...aahhhh....just like having a personal uzi-toting masseuse in the house. [​IMG]
    Oh, I used to have white doves fluttering about, but cleaning the fake blood off of them when my bags go off just got too tedious!
