#Friday 18.0: Some films just pull me in…everytime

Each week I will (try and) share a small segment of something useful I learnt. While this is for my own amusement I hope it resonates with my lovely readers.

When I put off sleeping on time

It’s nearing 22.30 and I put the leftovers in the fridge. Then turning off the kitchen lights I head to turn off the TV. An advert appears stating the next movie is Good Will Hunting.

“Great film that” I tell myself.

“I’ll catch the first 15 minutes and then head to bed”.

It’s nearing 23.50 and the film is reaching its epic climax, that final confrontation (no spoiler alert). Once again I’ve fallen foul of being sucked in to a great movie. That’s view number 8 I think….

I can add Deads Poets Society and The Godfather to the list of “keep me up films”.

Is there a movie that would keep you glued instead of going to bed?

    1. I switched my reading to an early morning ritual a while back. But I can recall picking up ‘The Graduate’ one night and reading it cover to cover. I think it was 3am when I finished it…

  1. My record has been for the movie “Ayutha Ezhuthu” – the original Tamil version of “Yuva” – 8 times in the cinemas. The movie is about events told in 3 different perspectives and each time I watched, I noticed something new which I felt was amazing. Btw, Tamil version was far better than the Hindi version because of the performance as well as sequencing of certain scenes.

  2. I really struggle to maintain enough attention span for films. I’m more a music and book person.

  3. hahahaha this happens to me all the time! There are plenty of content that can keep me glued , not specifically movie. I binge watch a lot of series on Netflix or Amazon Prime videos . The latest one that I finished in one go, because i could not wait, was “Chaman Bahar” on Netflix , “panchayat” and “Patal Lok” on Prime videos.

      1. Ya Panchayat was awesome!!!! All the actors are brilliant in that. I really like the lead though Jitendra kumar 🙈

        Watch Patal lok please!!!!! It is mind blowing.

        I think OTT platform has just grown and for better. I see a lot of talented actors, writers, directors getting chance, which is so amazing!!

      1. Yeh. But you will be astonished to know that a boy in you tube(I have forgotten his name) played tabla in the same way as Zakir Hussain played at Hazir album. Really it’s all God gifted matter.
