Random Factoid #6

3 08 2009

I have to watch movies from the beginning.  If I don’t, I get stressed out think about what I’ve missed rather than focusing what’s on the screen.  The best way to show the way I can be is a scene from “Annie Hall,” which I am having trouble finding on YouTube, but the dialogue goes like this:

Annie: So do you wanna go into the movie or what?

Alvy: No, I can’t go into a movie that’s already started because I’m anal.

Annie: That’s a polite word for what you are.

But I have never refused to go into a movie that has already started.  I saw “The Iron Giant” twice in theaters; once I missed the first half, the next time, I missed the first ten minutes.
