Yeah…movies. Fluffy, but you can only eat so much bran before you need meringue.
Movies I have a love/hate relationship with:
King Arthur: Clive Owen has all the charisma of the wooden stick seemingly interfaced with his nether regions, and Kiera Squintly drives me to seek a more intimate acquaintance with Captain Morgan, and yet this is the #1 most re-watched movie in my collection right now. All she does is glare at him, even during the wedding. Plus, this “true” version based on new facts is even more historically screwy than the more traditional versions. (And, dude, is that the Great Wall of China?) But it’s on my TV, at least as background, at least once a week. Must be Bors.
Miracle: Parts of this movie are either boring or horribly overacted and the accentsâ€¦OMG. Some are real, some are bad and some are really, really overdone. But the last five minutes brings me to my feet every single time.
A Knight’s Tale: This movie is an abomination, historically speaking, but it not only knows that, it revels in it. Maybe that’s why it’s so damn entertaining. As a side note, I’ve always said Heath Ledger’s cheeks make him look like the Joker when he smiles, so his casting in that role in The Dark Knight (the most highly anticipated upcoming movie at Casa Stacey) was like a vindication.
Fever Pitch: This is just not a good movie. But the Red Sox love is intense.
Last of the Mohicans: 1. What is up with DDL’s eyes? 2. Bellowing “Stay alive, no matter what occurs!” cracks my ass up every time. 3. Two minutes, Uncas. Two effin minutes and it could have been the next to the last of the Mohicans, which I scream at the TV every time I watch it. But, when you factor in how long I’ve owned it (first copy was VHS), it’s probably the most watched movie in my collection, actually, because I havenâ€™t had King Arthur as long.
Another side note: Does anybody else love Duncan (LotM) and Norrington (PotC) as much as I do?
The Movies I’d save in a fire:
Transformers: (Best movie ever. Srsly)
Pirates of the Caribbean: Actually, Iâ€™d go back for 1 in a fire, think about maybe saving 2 and use 3 for the kindling, but thatâ€™s probably just me.
My boxed sets of the Deadwood series
Batman Begins (delicious, except for Katie Holmes)
The tall kidâ€™s boxed sets of the Smallville series
Firefly boxed set and Serenity: (SHINY)
Harry Potter 5
(Hopefully itâ€™s a very slow moving fire)
Miracle: (see above)
Any Given Sunday
The Movies Iâ€™ve owned for a while and have yet to watch:
Lord of the Rings 2 and 3
I :heart: Huckabees
Hitchhikerâ€™s Guide to the Galaxy
Movies that sucked so much Iâ€™d throw them away if I could bring myself to do it:
Gods and Generals (such a massive disappointment after Gettysburg)
