You can tell a lot about a person from the miscellaneous collection of
DVD’s stacked next to their television set. Every film we own says a little bit about us, whether
we’d like it to… or not. So I’ve decided to turn this uncompromising
insight on myself by analyzing my entire DVD collection… one impulse
buy at a time.


DAY 15: THANK YOU FOR SMOKING

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:
Before he got half his face blown off, a cigarette
lobbyist (or Yuppie Mephistopheles) gains the support of the cancer
community, bribes the Marlboro man, and challenges the moral
superiority of the cheese peddling proletariat. (And it’s funny). I mean, I hate smoking… and even I
was behind Nick Nailer (Man, did this movie work or what?)


WHY I BOUGHT IT:
The
ridiculous Aaron Eckhart-Katie Holmes sex scenes. (Interestingly
enough, had Katie not made such a fiasco of her life after Batman
Begins, this would have been the pairing of Harvey Dent and Rachel
Dawes in THE DARK KNIGHT).

WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT ME:
I love movies that make you root for bad people. Silver-tongue villains who can talk their way around anything and can manipulate people at their whim. Maybe it’s because I secretly fancy myself one. (Buyer Beware.)



Hit me back. Until next time…
