So last night while I was having supper with the family my wife started asking me if I was sure that I really wanted the DVD Box set I had put on my Christmas list. I stared back at her blankly and asked her which one. She couldn’t remember which it was so I assumed it was the Alejandro Jodorowsky box set but she didn’t think that was the one. I figured it had to be it be that one and she somehow read the cover of one of the DVDs or something but nope it wasn’t it. The only other one I could remember asking for was the new Coen Brother‘s set but that just didn’t make sense. Why would I not want that one? I mentioned it and she said it was not it. She pulled out the Christmas list while telling me not to look because she had made some notes on the page and it turned out it was the Stanley Kubrick set. I listed off a few movies in it from memory and she had this weird look on her face and asked if I really did want it.
So now I am totally confused. She wouldn’t really say what is wrong with the set or anything. My feeling is she just thinks I’m crazy that I would want movies that are not mainstream. My question to all of you is do your families think you are crazy for wanting to watch movies that are not the typical fare?
