How to tell you’re a nerd: Method 99


During a special collections course lecture you somehow found yourself defending the cinematic importance of the 1992 Sam Raimi film, Army of Darkness.  How the class discussion ended up turning toward Army of Darkness, you are still unsure, but you do know that you could not sit by and have the film besmirched in favor of Disney’s 1993 film, Hocus Pocus starring Bette Midler.  You’re too much of a Bruce Campbell fan to not have spoken up in defense of Army of Darkness.

  1. I made a Bruce Campbell chainsaw reference to my partner and he looked at me oddly, I berated him for being a hethen and forced him to watch the Army of Darkness, all the while cursing his mother for not bringing him up right.

    • I should hope he then thanked you for exposing him to this amazing film, and praised its humor, cleverness, and creativity. LOL.

      If memory serves, the classmate who brought up the film had never seen it prior to agreeing to view the film after she made her husband watch HOCUS POCUS. In all honesty, I have a suspicion that the HOCUS POCUS fan might have been watching EVIL DEAD or EVIL DEAD 2 and didn’t know the difference between the films in the trilogy.

      The best part of that detour in the class discussion was hearing that there have been people in past years who have asked if my university’s library has a copy of the Necronomicon, who are then heart broken upon learning that the book was a prop and not an actual text on necromancy. I can only assume they were freshmen.
