    Three film fans in Singapore are claiming a world record for movie watching
    after reportedly sitting through 36 films in 72 hours.


    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/3925777.stm
    The trio sat on couches set up in a shopping mall to watch classics and family films , local media reported.

    If confirmed by Guinness World Records, it would beat a record of 66 hours, 30 minutes set by 11 people in New York.

    "The hardest part is in the morning when you get hallucinations,"   said one of the three, Michael Chia.

    Contestants were allowed five-minute rest breaks between each movie and a 15-minute break every third film. More than 20 people reportedly dropped out.

    "I am not going to watch any movies for a really long time," said finalist 24-year-old Fadzli Hussen, who stayed awake despite running a flu and taking medication.

    Following their endurance test, the three were questioned on what they had seen.

    Hussen won S$19,000 (5,930) for correctly answering the most questions.

    What films did they watch? I'm guessing that they watched the LOTR Trilogy, each of those films is about 24 hours long from what I remember.

    I think I did like 15 movies in 52 hours once, but that's the best I can do really.

    I had to eat and move around and stuff. 'cos I couldn't sleep, and sitting still for long periods of time makes you really weird then.
