If you have experienced one such instance (…or multiple ones) and always brushed off the charges with a ‘bullshit’, here are signs that you might actually not belong to the modern period.
You are always hooked on to the MGM channel, which is renowned for playing movies of Hollywood’s golden age.
Whenever someone proposes watching a latest movie, you end up making one excuse or another because you would rather watch a movie of the era that made sense.
You prefer reading books that were written in the conventional area…probably books of writers, who no longer live. Since people know you well, they often gift you books from Agatha Christie, Edgar Allen Poe and Max Mallowan, to name a few.
Regardless of the movie genre you like, you opt for black and white films over colour feature films.
You have downloaded all the Star Trek TV shows. The only reason you like the current generation movies is because they are an extension of this classic.
You fell in love with the history subject. Other than watching classic movies, you are obsessed with period TV shows and the History channel.
Your favourite actors/actresses are either 70+ in age or dead.
You also hate remakes of classic films. Even before they release, you compare them to the older version and decide their fate.
When it comes to classic movie trivia, no other individual can top you. You are open for debates and people dare not cross you when it comes to movies of the golden age.
You use phrases that belong to old movies. Over a period of time, it becomes annoying for your friends.
When someone uses a catchphrase from the current films, your first look is that of astonishment.
Although this does not happen much, but whenever you see a theatre playing a classic film, your heart flutters.
People often refer to you as ‘dadaji’ or ‘dadi ma’; regardless of all that, you know what brings you pleasure and you continue relishing the pleasure over and over again.
