More Movie Oddness from Our House

I love Jackie Chan movies. Particularly because they all end with bloopers, and I do love a good blooper. Particularly his bloopers because they’re pretty funny. He is crazy.

Randy watches Rent a lot when he’s in the basement working. I know, not exactly a movie you would ever picture him watching, right? Funny thing – the ENTIRE time he watches it, be gripes about the various things in it he hates. Constantly.

I’m surprised at how much I like boy movies these days. We’re watching a better class of boy movies, I think. Not so much jackie chan and Steven Segal, but more comic book movies. The Matrix was good for something, at least – SO MANY comic book movies. The new Batman movies, X-Men (I wish my mutation let me do cool tricks instead of just being a PITA), Ironman, Spiderman, Transformers, etc. It’s amazing how much I really do like those movies.

But you know a movie I’ve recently watched about 100 times because it’s on STARZ right now and I happen to be up in the middle of the night a lot lately? (Actually, more so when I was still PG.) Mystery, Alaska. Not just a sports-little-guy-against-the-big-guys flick, this movie has a lot of positive portrayals of marriage, and sticking with a marriage, and riding out the tough times and realizing what a good thing you have, etc. And it’s funny.

  1. I LOVE Mystery, Alaska. I watched it with my dad all the time once it was out on video. And I own it on vhs, so when it’s gone from Starz, you are more than welcome to borrow it. Who knows, maybe there’ll be a sequel, “Wasilla, Alaska”…;)
