Confessions of a Movieholic



Hey Lovelies,



For those who know me well, this is no longer a secret I am a certified movieholic and I can’t live without movies.
My top favorites are feel good like romance and comedy movies. I also like Sci-fi films, suspense-thriller and action.
Would you like to know if you're also one of us? 
Check out the list of symptoms below. Enjoy reading! :)











This is one of my movie day outfits,
I like watching films comfortably.
Jeans: ForMe 
Flats: Janilyn
Cosmetic Bag: Kara Nina


1.      YOU LOVE MOVIE LISTS

For those truly stricken with the movie madness, you will certainly nod to 
the  idea that there is no such thing as 'too much movies'.  
You love to list down the latest films that you've seen and rate it alphabetically or numerically.


2.      YOU LET YOUR TRUE EMOTIONS OUT


Attempting to restrain your true feelings of a film is 
certainly a clear 
mark of someone not a movie addict. 
A movieholic will cry if they want or will laugh out 
loud if the movie is really funny.



3.      YOU HAVE MOVIES STILL IN THE WRAPPING
 
Another clear indication that you drink in too much of the filmohol
is that you buy movies on a whim for no reason.
It will join its well-loved brothers on your sagging 
DVD rack forever 
sealed in its glossy plastic tomb.





4.      YOU ALREADY MEMORIZED THE LINES AND DIALOGUES OF 
YOUR FAVORITE FILMS
 
If movies are the drug then talking about them is the high, for 
there is no question a movie addict drools more quickly to then 
“so, what your favourite movie?” and "what is your 
favorite part?"
 


5.      YOU HAVE SEEN AT LEAST ONE MOVIE 
NOBODY ELSE HAS HEARD OF
 
Ahhh yes...nothing is a bigger buzz kill than the 
enthusiastic...
"Oh my god, have you seen ____???!?!"  
*Cue blank 
stares from your friends*



6.      YOU BUY INSTEAD OF DOWNLOAD
Bonafide movie addicts know the merit of a solid DVD 
collection; I mean, how else will everyone know what a 
freak you are?  People who only download do so only to 
parade around their needlessly large hard-drive.  
But addicts need the tactile feeling of popping open 
that case, need to see their own delirious expression in 
the glare off the plastic coating and need to 
experience 
the cool, commanding feeling of a remote control in 
their hand.
 
 
7.      YOU ALWAYS FINISH A MOVIE YOU START
no matter how long, horrendous or boring
 
Nothing irks a cinema junkie more those who wont finish a 
movie.  To us, its like leaving during the appetizer 
of a 12 
course meal.  There are always chances for the next 
scene to 
be better then that which preceded it and the same 
goes 
vice versa.  





8.      YOUR LIFE IS A MOVIE
 
You love to compare yourself with your favorite movie stars and
it takes a true doped up addict to pull out the 
obscurely bizarre quotes and insert them into every 
day conversation.
 
 
9.      YOUR MOVIE STUBS IS AS 
THICK AS A PHONE BOOK
 
You kept the stubs for reminders of the thousands of 
money you blew at the theatres. 

10.  YOU  DON'T MIND STANDING OR SITTING ON THE STAIRCASE, IF THE MOVIE HOUSE SEATS ARE FULL. 

My husband and I done this for a hundred times and also with my best friends. 
We don't mind standing for few minutes while waiting for someone to leave. LOL!



11.  YOU’RE A MOVIE FILTER
 
In an addicts’ never ending quest a
nd with the 
selfless act we clear 
the record on those movies that has a tempting title or trailer yet very horrible and waste of time to 
watch and stop others 
from taking the plunge.
 
 
12.  MOVIE POSTERS ARE YOUR WALLPAPER
 
This next symptom has various degrees of intensity.  Everyone 
who has been puffing the movijuana has at some point in 
their life had a movie poster.  That poster might as well be 
structurally integral to the wall, as it is never to be moved.  






13.  YOU HAVE AN OVERFLOW DVD RACK
 
Nothing puts an incredulous stare on someone’s face 
more 
then after showing someone your movie collection to 
then 
skirt around the corner to show them your second 
collection. 
(Alphabetized of course)
 
 
14.  YOU NEVER FEEL LAME WATCHING MOVIES 
ALONE
 
The great thing about movies is they can be enjoyed en masse 
or sporadically, for thrills or for relaxation and with friends or my 
ones lonesome.  A true addict can appreciate the film as a film 
and not need validation from others to feel fulfilled.









15.  YOU HAVE SEEN A MOVIE AT LEAST 10 TIMES
 
(10 is a general rule) and everyone has that movie...the one 
with the dings and scratches, the one with the cracked case, the 
one that may still be lying on the table, the one that makes 
your DVD player moan in annoyance when you put it 
in...the one that essentially embodies everything you love about 
the movies.
 
 
16.  YOU NEVER HATE AN ENTIRE GENRE OF FILMS
 
Saying you don’t like an entire genre of movie is like saying 
you don’t like one of your fingers just because you poked 
yourself in the eye once.  A bad experience should never 
turn you off the whole, and this is something a true movie 
addict is never guilty of.  
 
 

17.  YOU LOVE MOVIE TRAILERS
 
Nothing gets a movie addict pumped up like a rousing 
movie trailer.
 
 
18.  YOU LOVE SILENT, FOREIGN AND BLACK 
AND WHITE FILMS JUST AS MUCH AS ANY OTHER
 
We movie addicts both respect 
the new age of cinema but always leave a slice of time for the 
classics that made film what it is today. 
 







19.  YOU KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN  A BAD MOVIE A
A MOVIE YOU JUST DIDN’T LIKE
 
Well movie is like a person's beauty, it's in the eye of the beholder.
You can differentiate the non-sense film vs. the unappreciated.
 
20.  YOU WILL DEFEND A MOVIE YOU LOVE TO 
THE DEATH
 
Period.


Thank you for reading!

xoxo
