You were (and probably still are) EMO AS FUCK. You can quote all of these films and probably had a few of their posters in your room as a teen (or still do as an adult... no judgement, I do too). If you don't identify with being emo but got this result, you got some soul-searching to do... or, you know, maybe you just really like ~emo~ movies. Either way, keep doing you, Boo.
