View Full Version : Poll: Order Hell

I have a terrible habit. I buy DVDs/videos, and don't watch them until I have bought their prequels and can therefore have a marathon of sorts.

For example, I recently bought Friday The 13th Part V.

I didn't watch it, however, until I managed to afford and buy 1-4, so I could watch them one after the other, despite their having practically no relevance to each other apart from Jason.

Am I insane? I've got Urban Legends: Final Cut here gathering dust because I haven't bought the first one.

I suppose this comes from my watching Phantasm 2 before seeing the first one and thinking "what in the holy fuck is going on?" and from then on it became a rule for me.

Does anyone else do this, or can anyone else at least see my logic behind this?

I've started on that, I just watched Phantasm 2 w/out watching the first also. Thats what it must do to us.....

I've bought out of order in the past (Xtro 2), but refrain from doing so today. I don't want to risk being disoriented by the storyline, provided that there is a storyline. I mean, I'd make an exception for Slumber Party Massacre III.

Hahahaha. I always rented the movies out of order as a kid, it didnt matter if it was police academy or friday the 13th i saw them all out of order and i dont really buy movies, unless i cant find copies of them.
