As a kid, you could often find my family and I conversing almost entirley in movie quotes. Little did I know that this was not the norm when I eventually grew up and no one knew the lines I was yelling from “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World”. Should I be embarrased by this social faux pas? Not at all. In fact, I’m rather proud of it.
And I’m hoping… if you are anything like me, you have at least one or two people on your holiday list that are the same way as me. Maybe not in movie quotes, but perhaps they are a film student in the making or maybe they love quirky collectibles OR maybe they are the professional-movie-watchers-and-popcorn-eaters-on-a-Friday- night kinda person. Aren’t we all that person sometimes?
Well these items are for those people. The fellow movie lovers out there. Hopefully you’ll find something new and a little out there. I mean, who doesn’t want to sport “Fargo” written across their chest all season?!
1. Awesome Mix Vol 1 from Gaurdians of the Galaxy | 2. Fargo Sweater | 3. The Big Lebowski TIME Mirror
4. Muppets Alphabet Print | 5. “What I Love About Movies” Book | 6. The Science of Interstellar
7. TCM Classic Movie Trivia | 8. Science Fiction Star Chart | 9. Popcorn Maker
10. Movie Slate Board
All these items make me want to build a big theatre in my home someday. Ahhh dreams. Speaking of dreams, I had a dream about Interstellar the other night. I haven’t seen it but I read an article that the science in it was pretty spot on. So even if you’re a science nut, number 6 just may be for YOU!
And I think I need to become more well versed in my old movies because that TCM trivia game would be so fun. But I should probably finish the ever growing list of old movies I need to watch. And that’s where the popcorn will come in handy;)
Check out last year’s Gift Guide for the Movie Buff! There are still a lot of items I love on that one.
I hope you or someone on your list could go for one or more of these items. But even if they don’t…
