This article features my Day 3 entry for the 5 Day GIF Challenge

We're all movie fans here right? Right!? No? Okay... Well for those of of you who are you've probably experienced all of the following scenarios at some point in your life.

"What do you MEAN you don't like movies!?"

Luckily I don't have to have these kinds of conversations so often anymore, trying to convince others that my film obsession is justified. Working here at Moviepilot, I'm sure you can imagine the great company I'm in. It's no secret over here that movies. are life.

Still, there are people out there who simply do not share our appreciation for the silver screen. They do exist, somewhere.

Being the tolerant person I am, however, when someone says to me "I don't like movies", I always respect their opinion.

Seriously though! I do try to engage in these conversations and really listen to what they have to say.

It doesn't always make sense, but I genuinely do try to listen.

Sometimes the conversation ends right then and there. Sometimes I just can't handle anymore and make a smooth exit.

Then, other times the convo goes on and on and they try to convince ME that I'M somehow the strange one.

That's when I get fed up.

"Oh NO you dint."
"Oh NO you dint."

And just start dropping truth bombs all over the place.

Then they say some more stuff...

... and I continue to drop atomic bombs of truth and wisdom acquired from all my years of movie watching.

Once I'm done, they have absolutely no idea what hit them.

Another win for movie fans, another win for humanity.

The moral of this story? WATCH. MORE. MOVIES.
