Our Choice in Movies

Sometimes I don’t know what is wrong with me. I love good movies. I love old movies. I love scary movies. I love movies with subtitles. I have a very eclectic taste. But, do you ever find yourself in front of the TV with nothing on? I truly wonder about myself sometimes considering what I actually end up watching.

The other night, I was in this predicament, and I flipped to Starz, which was showing When a Stranger Calls (the new one). I actually saw this at the theatre. It was one of those scary movies that was funny. Plus, I saw it with Stacey and Andrea, and it’s hilarious to grab Stacey’s leg at an appropriate part in the movie just to hear her scream. Muwahahaha.

Anyway, I watched it again, this time complete with Eric, who is an enjoyable sidekick when watching a bad movie. Has anyone seen When A Stranger Calls? Because let me tell you, the first thing I would do if I knew someone was outside the house watching me, is disarm the security system and go outside! Come on!! Also, if there was a series of babysitter murders going on about 125 miles away, you would think the police would take the girl a little more seriously when she called and said someone was making threatening phone calls. Jeez!

But, I digress. It gets worse. When that was over, both kids were in bed and neither Eric nor I had the energy to get up and locate the remote. Deuce Bigalow, European Gigalo came on. Are you ready for the bad part? We watched the entire thing. Given, I think it was only an hour and a half long, but still. What’s worse is we made man whore jokes for about the next 24 hours. You all know how much I love the word whore. Man whore just takes it to a whole new level.

*sigh* I think I’m in desperate need of a good movie. I just hope they don’t make a Deuce Bigalow part 3, because I know I would end up seeing it. I just wouldn’t be able to help myself.

I am very excited for next summer’s Spiderman. Is Eli too young for that? He’s seen bits and pieces of the first one, but this one looks a little dark. I will have to see what rating it gets. But who am I kidding, even if it’s rated R, Spiderman will still be on Happy Meals and lunch boxes.

I just saw the preview for Harry Potter & The Order Of The Phoenix, and I added the ticker-countdown to the new movie on my sidebar.
What a nerd am I!
I've never seen any of the spiderman films, so I can't help you there.

I just watched De-Lovely again the other night. Asheley Judd should have won an oscar for that!
That's one movie that I love & get more out of it each time I see it.
But then, I love the music of Cole Porter.
It's de-lightful, it's de-licious, it's de-lovely!

And I just borrowed Mo's HP ticker. Spiderman 3 is definitely going to be darker than the other 2 movies. X-men 3 is one that I'm not going to let the kids watch even though they've watched the other 2. They're not ready for it.

Hang in there. Pirates 2 comes out next week!!!!!!!

Lord, who was in the first movie? Sounds like an Eric Roberts special.

As for Deuce Bigalow, I see nothing wrong with it.
