People are always appalled by how few classic American movies I've seen. This is made all the more shocking because I was a film studies major in college. But, I always argue, it's not like "The Goonies" sits the curriculum between Soviet montage theory and "Double Indemnity." Trust me, I wish it had.
However, I'm completely to blame for why I haven't seen these movies ("The Goonies" included) in my personal time. I have a terrible, shameful habit. As soon as a movie begins, my body shuts down. I'm out like a light.
When my friend Katherine, who was appalled that I had never seen "Top Gun," invited me over for a screening, we made an event of it. She had kept the movie on her DVR for nearly a year, we set the date weeks in advance, ordered dinner, and settled in to watch the supposedly amazing movie I had been missing out on.
And then this happened.
I'm the worst!
So welcome to the first edition of "I'm The Worst," a column in which we reveal our bad habits as often as we feel comfortable revealing our bad habits, and then ask you for advice combatting them.
I can't really think what they could possibly be, but do you have any tips for how I can stay awake for movies? Or just want to commiserate?
