So gabriel1980 do you consider yourself a movie buff then? At what point can someone say he's a movie buff? What criteria does a movie have to have to be included in the training of a movie buff?
I don't read many books and the only ones I did read have all been adapted to movies. My sister does read a lot. But I read a Shakespear story in school once and I've read Catcher in the Rye. Does that make me the better reader because at least I read some classics and she didn't?
I'll bet if your mate would take a movie quiz he'd still know who starred in The Godfather, Scarface and Goodfellas. I'll bet he knows what you can't refuse, what friend you have to say hello to but maybe doesn't know how funny Joe Pesci is.
