August 29th, 2005

I’m staring at my computer this morning through burning red eyes. For some reason I couldn’t get to sleep last night until super late (ie a few hours ago) and haven’t been able to go back to sleep since my dh left for work. I AM NOT A MORNING PERSON. Never have been. I mean I can appreciate the beauty of a sunrise, but my entire body screams in protest and demands I go back to bed immediately. I hope this isn’t an indication of how my day will go.

Yesterday, dh and I went to see The Brothers Grimm. Strange little tale that lacked an actual story. I suppose it was a glimpse of how their ‘stories’ got started. Visually, it wasn’t bad to look at, but that was about all you got out of the flick.

Next up will probably be the Transporter 2. No, I didn’t think the first Transporter movie was any good, but there is something about the man who plays the Transporter that’s riveting. (wg) Plus, he kicks butt in the movie. Yes, I can be that shallow on occasion. I LOVE bad movies, specifically two types of bad movies. The first kind are monster movies (ie Tremors, Deep Rising, Blob, Godzilla, etc.) The second kind are action/adventure flicks (The Scorpion King, Transporter, Kung fu anything, etc.) I won’t even get into my embarrassing love of Scooby Doo cartoons AND movies. *ggg* Oh, then there’s Abbott and Costello, musicals from the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s, and 60’s era groovy spy films. In Like Flint anyone? Snicker. Actually, that’s probably more information than you REALLY want to know about me. 😉

Do you like a particular kind of movie that would be considered ‘bad’? Any guilty pleasures?

  1. Ugh, I am so not a morning person either. And I get very cranky when I dont get at least 8 hours of sleep. lately, I haven’t even been close to the 8 hour mark so I’m a regular bitch on wheels 😉

    Hope you get better rest tonight!

  2. Sharon, I’m an eight to ten hour girl myself. I don’t get cranky, but I do get spacy. As for resting tonight, it’ll have to be better than the three hours I got last night.

  3. I love, love, the Jurassic Park movies. Own all three and wish they came out with another. Rewatch them all the time. Put 22-month in front of it just the other day and he got all excited and pointed to the TV when T-rex came on the screen.

  4. I enjoyed The Transporter, and can’t wait for #2!!
    I agree it wasn’t real plot heavy. But He was hot, ( I never really thought Jason Statham was that great untilI saw that show) and the action was good! I enjoyed it. 😀

  5. Lol, I’m so an owl. If I manage to see a sunrise, it’s because I’m still up.

    I’m not much a moviegoer, but a guilty pleasure of mine are so-called historical movies/TV films which suck hairy monkey thingies at history but have hot actors. Gerard Butler as Attila *drool*. Or the most of the male cast in King Arthur – yum.

  6. I love old romantic-musicals. (don’t hit me). Brigadoon…7 Brides for 7 Brothers, etc.

    I also like great awful horror films, like ‘The Wax Museum’, or ‘House on Haunted Hill’ (yaayyy!).

  7. Last night I caught a bit of Godzilla vs Mothra. lol. luv’d it. 😉 I love me a good B movie. Ahhh-nold in RUNNING MAN, is a nother fun one.

    I was very disappointed with the first Transporter movie. I was expecting some more clever, but I started picking it apart from the first frame practically. We’ll see Transporter 2 on video. 😛

  8. I like old movies and as much as I hate to admit it, I love kids movies and teenybopper movies. Give me a simple Hillary Duff movie any day. A Cinderella Story… bliss. Must watch again, now that I’ve mentioned it. 🙂 Shirley Temple, oh, wonderful bliss. Anything Rodgers and Hammerstein. Old ones, not new ones. And of course, if it’s got Audrey (Hepburn to those who haven’t been blessed by the woman’s talent), I’m there.

  9. Cheesy sci-fi flicks seem to always grab me. The type you see on the sci-fi channel that look so bad. Some even make it to the big screen. Eight legged freaks comes to mind. My favorite is so old (to me anyway), and whenever I mention to people about it they are like huh … it’s this 1986 movie called The Wraith with Charlie Sheen. It’s so cheesy, but it has a great soundtrack and I know every word by heart. Couldn’t resist buying the DVd a month or so ago.

  10. One of my all time favorite B movies is from the 70s — Billy Jack. It spoke to my teenage, idealist heart. *g*

    There are several other movies that crack me up everytime I see them… Airplane for one. Just hearing people say some of those lines can make me snicker.

  11. Vincent Price movies and Wizard of Oz. I can’t get enough of either!

  12. I’m a sucker for Abbott & Costello’s movies. Give me anything from the Marx Brothers. I worship Mr. Snarkiness, Groucho Mark. *vbg* And okay, I admit I’m a big 007 (as in Bond… James Bond) fan. I also love Mel Brook’s movies – Blazing Saddles and Spaceballs are among my favorites. On TV, I can sit for hours losing myself before the square tube watching The Three Stooges (w/Larry, Moe, and Curly only!!! Nyak, nyak, nyak!!!) and Night Court.

  13. Peggy, I like the Jurassic Park movies myself and own three of them, but then again, I love dinosaurs. (wg)

  14. Sasha, Like I said, riveting. 😉

  15. Gabriele, Gerard Butler is definitely easy on the eyes.

  16. Raine, I own all those musicals. I’m missing a couple of Gene Kelly flicks, but I plan to remedy that soon. 😀

  17. Danica, Love Audrey Hepburn. Your mention of Hillary Duff reminds of one of my favorite love stories, Ever After with Dugray Scott.

  18. Gina, I love them too. Journey to the Center of the Earth, Forbidden Planet, etc. Sigh. I’m going to have to get more DVD’s.

  19. Mary, Airplane is hilarious because it’s so very silly. Same with Blazing Saddles.

  20. Jaid, I agree with you on Vincent Price. No one really does scary like that anymore. He was VERY convincing. I don’t think I’ll ever forget him cooking the poodles. *ggg*

  21. Silma, I love James Bond too. Own several of the Sean Connery ones and Pierce Brosnan’s.

  22. Jason Statham; YUM! I love B movies. I love kung fu and action movies. I love everything that ever appeared on Creature Feature. I even love Abott and Costello Meet Frankenstein and the Wolfman! Serious people can have the Serious Movies, I’ll just watch Army of Darkness for the zillionth time. ; )

  23. I absolutely can’t stand slapstick comedy but I love Blazing Saddles (CLASSIC) and Airplane! Jurrasic Park, Seven Brides, Brigadoon…old musicals–they just don’t make movies like that anymore (sigh)..and those big dumb action/adventure movies JOrdan’s so fond of–count me in.

    Love old SD also!

  24. Charlene, I hear you. I’m not even going to count how many times I’ve seen Godzilla, Lake Placid, or Tremors. Snicker.

  25. Cece, I’m going to have to break out my musicals now. 😉

  26. Yes to Lake Placid, Jurassic Park, and add Independence Day and Lara Croft – the second one. I love Gerard Butler, too!

  27. Thanks Mary! I forgot about those. (wg)
