I cannot even stand to see a preview. Not even a clip. Not a millisecond.
I am a big,
fat baby when it comes to movies. Most of them, in fact.
I cannot, even remotely stand scary movies. Horror? Ohmygosh I wanna die just thinking about the scariness. The gruesome. The yuck.
I simply cannot put it in my brain. I can't. I have to hold my ears and squeeze my eyes tightly shut if anything flashes on the tv screen or movie screen even remotely scary.
Not just horror, though. No, no. It extends way past that.
If the movie involves explosions, cars-crashing, bank-robbery, too much intense music (no, I'm serious, stop laughing), fire, kidnapping, or too much foul language (unless used in a comedy-type movie)....I'm out.
I cannot handle it.
Last night, Declan & I were scrolling through our apple TV movie options watching previews. We literally sucked up about 45 minutes of time JUST watching previews.
But I couldn't do it. I had to close my eyes, turn my head, distract myself---I just cannot watch any intense movies anymore. Heck, even previews.
My husband knows me so well. If he even SEES that there is a gun on the box of a movie? He goes, "oh yea, you won't like that." He doesn't push the issue. Those types of movies give me legit anxiety.
So? What do I watch?
You're probably thinking that my options have been brought down to basically nothing. And, you're right. I even thought Toy Story 3 was intense and scary as heck. I really, truly did.
I'll happily watch comedy...documentaries...love a good indie movie...and chick flicks. That's about the gist of it, really.
My husband is a good sport about it. He wouldn't ever push me into watching something he knows my brain just cannot handle, and that makes me feel ten sorts of anxious.
So yea, in more words than one, I said it: I'm a big wimp.
