S and I went on an honest to goodness date last night. I mean, we go out a lot, etc, but this seemed to have some formality to it that was very nice. I wasn’t too wiped out from working all day, so we just chilled out at our house until 9 ish, then we walked downtown and saw the movie “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” which outside of seeing that guy from “How I met your mother” naked (like really REALLY naked) too many times was a good movie. But that’s not what this post is about.

While we were sitting there as the previews started I turned to S and said, “Know what? I could probably watch previews for an hour or so and be fully entertained. Actually, come to think of it, If someone made a 2 hour movie of previews of all my FAVORITE movies ever I would probably be in screen heaven.”

Please tell me I’m not a freak (for this.) S looked at me like I had caught the crazy.


  1. Not a freak. šŸ™‚ (Says the person who worked at movie-related jobs for 6+ years.) Trailers are expertly edited, and made to be amazing and exciting. And for some movies, it shows all the good parts anyway. šŸ˜‰

    *returns to lurking*

  2. You’re not a freak–I get so upset if we ever miss the previews. It’s like they’ve taken the best of the movie and boiled it down to two minutes. The trailers are fantastic.

  3. I love previews. I just hate when watching a drama or love story and there is a horror preview. I get what you are saying though, not strange at all.

  4. i SO look forward to previews, just to get a taste of what’s coming. and it gets me into movie-watching mode. not weird. šŸ˜‰

  5. I’m with S on this one. You caught the crazy.

  6. Well, maybe it’s because I’m a filmmaker or just a film dork, but I can say that my love of trailers is so great I actually watch them on DVD’s. And two hours of the ones from my favorite movies would be like that late season t.v. show episode, you know the retrospective one. It would be a fun trip down memory lane. šŸ™‚

  7. Trailers rock. When we went to see Forgetting Sarah Marshall, we arrived too late for previews. It took me about half an hour to recover from the disappointement.

  8. I looooooove me some trailers! I actually haven’t been to a movie in an actual cinema in years (so sad) but I have to get my trailer fix on by going to the apple quick time website.

    The main dude in Sarah Marshall says he wants to bring the Muppets back…I might be in love.

  9. I do love me a trailer or two. Or ten. But you are, in fact, a freak.
    Another Freak

  10. A two hour preview of my favorite movies would be heaven. Extra points if there is liberal use of the Cinema Paradiso score.

  11. A.D.D. girl, not the crazy. You’ve just got the attention span of a five-year-old on Skittles. Not your fault.
