The Mystery and Addiction of Certain Movies…

While it may have been midnight when I rolled into the Holiday Inn here in the lube state, I turned on the television for background noise while I set the room up and was going to head to be since I needed to be up in 7 hours to get ready for work….

but the channel was not on that generic auto-reset station shilling the pay movies for the hotel… it was on something else… I actually have no idea what the actual station is, but it has one of those movies… you know the ones… you stumble across them all the time while skimming through the stations and they take hold of you and they have some mystical ability to draw you in and make you watch it no matter what the situation… you may own the movie on DVD and it is sitting on a shelf 15 feet away, but you sit and watch it on TV anyway… you sit through the commercials and the edited out words and any other inappropriate things… and you watch… religiously every time… not sure why since you know the movie inside and out… every line… every scene… the ending… and everything…

Tonight it was “The Natural”, but another movie that does it to me is the Shawshank Redemption, as well as Scent of a Woman, Happy Gilmore,  Evolution and a couple others that I cannot remember off the top of my head… What is it about these movies? I have no idea.. but I wish I knew….
