LOL Sommer, I posted my own film school comment at the same time.Sommer Leigh wrote:Oh man, I am so glad I don't have the reading affliction of not being able to turn off my editor when I read. I love reading for pleasure and I would go nuts if I couldn't let go of my analysis brain when I do it.
My husband's first degree was in English with a concentration on film (clearly a really useful degree.) Unfortunately it RUINED movies for him, even to this day and it has been like 6 years since he graduated. He can't stop picking them apart or figuring out the end long before you're supposed to be able to figure it out. He spends the whole time comparing directors and cinematography styles. It makes watching movies with him unbearable.
A recent perk I found to my film background is that I was the only one of my friends/family members who didn't have a hard time following INCEPTION. Glad those 4 years of my life weren't totally wasted. ;)
