I Saw That Movie Before You, So, I'm Better Than You Are

I Saw That Movie Before You, So, I'm Better Than You

Oh please. I know this may have been touched on before. But I just had to bring it to light again. It recently happened to me yet again. Someone I have known for too many years was telling me about a film (the hunter), which he saw before I did. When we were discussing the film, I informed him that I only just saw it. He then told me he saw it ages ago. As if to say that I suck because I saw it after him. It's the way he told me that pissed me off. Like he's better than me, and has one up, just because he saw the film weeks before me. So, in essence, my opinions don't count because I was late to the party. His voice was so full of belittling attitude towards me. Fuck him. Idiot.

Anyone else had this kinda thing before?

Yeah, I have before. I remember posting on Facebook that I just saw (and enjoyed the hell out of) the original Shaft series, and a few moronic friends said "welcome to the late 1970s, LOL...what's next for you, Foxy Brown?"

It kinda ticked me off, but he was right: Foxy Brown WAS the next movie!

GoW, I noticed you chose your words carefully - making sure not to call said asshole a "friend".

Otherwise I would've had to ask "What kinda friend does that kinda shit?" LoL!

I've not had anything like this that I can think of right off hand. Something similar, a trainer/boss guy at my job said he's always managed to guess the twists/endings to popular twist ending movies like Mulholland Drive and Inception upon first viewing them (without them being spoiled). I don't believe it for a fucking second, but whatever.

I don't get the condescension from my buddies.. I just get, when I tell them that I just saw a popular title (Like Top Gun or Jaws) I get "How could you of all people not seen that movie until now"?! Simply because I am the dude that has seen everything and when it comes to movies, I am the dude that is called for any and all questions, so for me to not have seen major movies like that, it shocks them a little.

I also still get it for "Wizard of Oz" as I still have yet to see the entire movie! (Even after having spent $80 on the box set with all the swag a few years back!

He is better than you. lol

I think he may have meant it as he saw it and does not remember it enough to talk about it. He is over it. You should let it go. You probably know the movie better than he does since it is top of mind for you. He might think lower of you and was not want to make it seem like you know more than he does, so he will not engage you when he is at a disadvantage.

The fact that it happened "again" and how you feel about it means to me that you are insecure. Lighten up, Francis.

It shits me more when people brag about seeing a movie before it has been released in Australian because they downloaded some crappy cam version.
