Think You Are a Movie Buff? Answer This.
Who played the role of ‘Chief’ Bromden in the 1975 classic, ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’?
Before you start thinking and calling yourself a movie buff, let’s understand what a movie buff actually is. It is extremely important to note that watching classics like The Godfather, Gone with the Wind, Casablanca, and Schindler’s List do not make you a movie buff. Movie buffs are those who enjoy all kinds of movies, it doesn’t matter if they are good or bad. They can sit through any movie, and find something GOOD or BAD about it. It doesn’t matter if the movie belongs to their favorite genre or not, they are just thankful to the Almighty for a movie.
Movie buffs are just in love with the whole concept of storytelling, and hence no matter how bad the movie is, they will definitely find something worthwhile in it. Another important aspect of a movie buff is his/her ability to remember film trivia. Normally, people remember significant details of films that feature their favorite stars or directors, but a movie buff will remember everything about a movie he/she saw. Here is another way to figure if you really are a movie buff.

Which Type of Movie Buff Are You?
Here are the different categories of movie buffs designed and developed by anonymous movie lovers just like you and me. See in which category you fit.
Are you The Moviegoer?
You rush to the local multiplex every time a new movie comes out. You are more interested in watching the latest movies, and share their trailers with your reviews on various social platforms. You haven’t watched classics like Dirty Harry, Citizen Kane, or Casablanca, and still don’t know what’s so great about Humphrey Bogart, James Stewart, Paul Newman, James Dean, and Spencer Tracy.
Are You The Classicist?
You believe that the golden decade of cinema was between the 40s and 60s. The new crowd of Hollywood only makes movies for money. Your world revolves around Hollywood icons like Tracy, Bergman, Bogart, and Grant, and you try to stay away from Portman, Freeman, DiCaprio, and Hoffman. You rarely go to multiplexes, and prefer collecting classics that achieved immortality over the years.
Are You The Conservator?
You only watch movies of your favorite director, actor, and actress, or carry around a list of movies you want to view. You have your own taste when it comes to movies, and your preferences are often divided into lists. You never follow the crowd, and take your own time in being comfortable with a film.
Are You The Bizarrer?
You like exploring the areas of cinema which are not popular enough. There are high chances, you’ve seen every bizarre movie. This includes movies that have been banned, and the ones that failed to secure a worldwide release. You avoid commercial cinema, and a lot of cult classics and B movies feature on your list of movies.
Are You The Linguistic?
You rarely watch English films, and are more interested in foreign language films. You prefer watching good movies from directors no one has heard of, and from languages not many can speak.
Another point to remember is that a true movie buff will always watch a movie and then decide its worth. He/she is not going to watch a movie because everyone is praising it, and he/she also won’t just shun off the movie just because Rotten Tomatoes has given it a low rating.
In case you are still wondering, it was Will Sampson who played the role of ‘Chief’ Bromden in ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’.
