Commit this to Memory

The first movie I ever watched was The Fox and the Hound – a Disney production. I think I can safely say that it’s my favourite Disney movie. No other ones have touched me as much as that one, and that’s also the one I’ve watched the most.

I was about five years old – maybe even four – when I watched it. I received it on VHS as a birthday present. I don’t remember who it was from. Either from a friend, or parents. But that video still sits in the cabinet under the television.

It was also the first movie that made me cry. 😒 I swear, when movies and books have that effect on me, that’s it. It is a good book or movie. Or even better than good. Whatever can put that kind of strong emotion into you is well written, well created.

That also goes with anything that makes you laugh or smile excessively. It doesn’t have to make you cry. You know a good humourous movie when you see one. You know a feel-good movie when you see one. I know everyone’s tastes differ, but even then, we have our own favourites.

I’ll admit I’m not a huge movie person at all. If I could sum it up – I dislike watching movies – at the cinema/theatre, anyway. The reason is because I can’t exactly sit there for a long period of time and have a good time. I can’t sit still unless I’m comfortable, and my idea of comfortable is not in the dark with people munching on popcorn and squishy seats with armrests on the sides.

I hate chairs with armrests. I don’t have room to move. 😑 I seem to get so frustrated over something small. But for a long time I’ve not been able to stand watching things for so long. I have to get up and have a break every now and then. 😰

I don’t go to the cinemas often because I hate the experience. I also don’t like spending money to sit there and watch a movie. I’d rather watch with friends at home, sitting on a comfortable couch or on a sofa bed… that’s how I prefer to watch a movie.

I’ve never really been a fan of watching many things, which is also why my favourites list of movies is pretty small. People ask me, “What’s the last movie you saw at the cinema?”

The answer to that, my friend, is Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. If one were to ask me for the movie before that… The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Wow, I am a sad case. O_O
