    At lunch yesterday I walk into the kitchen, and a couple of my friends are already sitting and chatting. One of them says something, I didn't quite hear the beginning, but finishes with "yeah, it was a real nail biter."

    I said "what was?"

    My other friend says "The Game."

    I said, "With Michael Douglas? Yeah, that was a pretty good ride, I'll get around to owning it one day I'm sure."

    Friend 2 says, "No, Tom, the Bills game over the weekend."

    :b

    Could have been worse, you could have had Triple H pop in to your head.

    OK, you're definitely a total movie geek, but what made it "official"? Did you get a certificate or something? [​IMG]

    In before the move...

    For me, it was Hughes, Hill and Zemeckis.

    An 80s movie geek, I am, but a movie geek nevertheless.

    Sincerely,

    John Kilduff...

    I know who was originally to produce and direct the 1986 version of "Little Shop Of Horrors".

    For me it's Kubrick, Gilliam and the CoenBrothers (two count as one).

    Great story Tom. What did they say?

    I've been there, but on a little more annoying end of the spectrum. Its amazing that people will openly act like they couldnt give two squirts of piss about what movie you watched over the weekend, but are amazed that you dont know the square root of total number of accumulated rushing yards for all the NFL games that were played that weekend. [​IMG] Its fine if you dont like movies, but have the curtousy to not act like I'm a freak for not liking what you like.
