A Guy Thing

Sometimes, when I can't seem to get excited about... much of anything... I enjoy watching movies. But not just any ole kind, and certainly not the angst-ridden indie dramas I've come to enjoy. Oh no, we're talking "Guy Movies." You know 'em, and you love or hate 'em. Many things blow up. Many people die. Many bad words. And perhaps, some gratuitous nudity.

Here's a few of my faves, in no particular order:

Any Lethal Weapon (First is the best!)
Any Die Hard (Again first one rules!)
Point Break
The Last Boy Scout
Young Guns - Either

And the #1 - Fight Club

I'd list the Indiana Jones movies, but they are a bit too stylish for this list. Same goes for Heat. Also, the classic comedies are for other moods. You know; Animal House, Caddy Shack, Stripes, Slap Shot...

I'll list more as they come to me.

I can sense your anticipation.

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...

LOVE Lethal Weapons... doesn't matter which one was best or worst or whatever. It had Mel, that's all that matters.

Loved Young Guns too.

Point Break.... loved it. Now HATE it. Keanu and his horrific acting. "via con de os" VOMIT!!!! That's not spelled right either but I was trying to spell it phonetically like he says it.

Still haven't seen Fight Club.

You know what movie I've been thinking about wanting to watch lately? The Thomas Crown Affair. I thought that movie was so cool. Plus I loved her dress in that one dance scene.

But when I'm in a funk I like to watch movies like:
Hope Floats, Notting Hill, Sweet Home Alabama, Runaway Bride, Pretty Woman. You know, GIRLIE movies. LOL Totally unrealistic romantic movies.

You crack me up J.J. I would be more impressed with a list of "chick flicks" that you saw (and don't lie), you liked!

The way we were
Gone with the wind
Sleepless in Seattle
Top Gun

Come on...tell me!

Mango - Have I ever seen "Snatch?" Is that a trick question??? (Actually, no I haven't. The movie I mean.)

SRB - I have to admit, I haven't seen one of the movies you listed. Something about Hugh Grant that makes my skin crawl.

Mzhonyhole - never would have taken you for a gore fan!

Kiera - OK, looks like you've given me an idea for a new post!!! LOL

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...

But doc.. it was such a good movie. Even with him in it.

"I'm just a girl standing in front of a boy asking him to love her."

IT KILLS ME!!!!! Besides, she looks amazing in that movie so it's all good. You should try it. I'll make you a deal. You see it. I'll see Fight Club.

I thought of some other good guy movies today when I was at the movies seeing trailers for the next installment.

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE!! I don't know if I ever saw the first one but I liked the second one and the third ones looks pretty good, too.

I mostly like horror movies.

Come into my realm! You aren't afraid...are you?

Gotta go with any Duvall movie, "Lonesome Dove", "The Great Santini". Can't go wrong with Bobby.
