The wife wanted to go see the movie Dear John last night. I give it a solid 2-1/2 out of 5. It wasn't nearly the total chick flick I expected, but it was not an awesome movie either. I will not go into details, but let me say this -- what a bitch. Guys, if you want a nice date movie that is not an over the top romance, you will be able to stand this movie. Hey, if she will go see Transformers, Avatar or GI Joe with you, you can do this for her.
I need to get busy and help out a little around here. You know, dust or run the sweeper or something. I did activate my new debit card this morning. Maybe I do deserve a rest! I bet I could find a nice action DVD, a real manly movie with Clint, or the Duke to wash away the chick flick experience. I need to find something with explosions and guns and maybe some damn Nazi killing. Horses or cannon will also do the trick. Some female nudity always cleanses the romance from the brain.Hold on...
I just went to the awesome DVD cabinet. I have not seen The Blue Max for a while. I found a copy of The Great Escape that is unopened. Ooooh, maybe Master and Commander? Bonnie and Clyde, The Longest Day, or Big Jake? Do I want The Warriors or Full Metal Jacket?
I received a copy of Woodstock for Christmas, but I do not think that fits my mood this morning. Do I want to go the comedy route, Happy Gilmore or something from Dean and Jerry? The boy has a copy of Forgetting Sarah Marshall. I could do Animal House or The Blues Brothers. I am sure the lovely Esther Williams is out of the question,as is Elvis. I need something manly like The Outlaw Josey Wales or Jeremiah Johnson.
I could watch my set containing the entire first season of Rat Patrol, or maybe John Wayne in North to Alaska. The Godfather (Parts I and II) sits quietly yet powerfully offering a viewing I cannot refuse. Dare I give up the three hours each volume demands?
Joe Kid, or Patton? Zulu Dawn or Zulu? Platoon or Saving Private Ryan? I could watch The Alamo or Billy Jack.How about Platoon, Gettysburg, Heartbreak Ridge or The Dualists?
There it is; the perfect Saturday morning movie...
