W.A. #308: Chick Flicks or Guy Movies

From For Ellipsis

Weekend Assignment #308: Chick Flicks or Guy Movies.
(I am hosting this week. Click the link above to participate)

I think in our house the choice of movies is pretty evenly split. Way back before Alan and I started dating, back when we were best friends, we made a deal to alternate which movies we watched. It's a custom that we still do to this day. Although, there was one recent exception... I couldn't get him to go to the theater to see the Sex and the City movie a couple years ago. Nope. No way. Not gonna do it! LOL. I didn't push, but man I wanted to see that movie. When it finally came on HBO, Alan did graciously agree to watch it with me, and he actually enjoyed it! LOL. I knew he would. There is a new Sex and the City movie set for release later this year. I am already trying to talk him into it. Ahh... come on Alan... we can go for pizza afterwards! LOL.

Sex and the City 2

Extra Credit: A review of the worst movie I have ever seen...

DUNE A review in Haiku

Bad movie I once saw
Searching for spice was a yawn
Who knew Sting was gay?

I hated the movie Dune. The book was so much better then the movie. If you haven't seen it, don't bother. Read the book. :)


Don't forget, the next Weekend Assignment will be posted over at Karen's blog, Outpost Mavarin, next Thursday. See you back here in 2 weeks with WA#310!

That popcorn looks so damn good! It's a rainy day...maybe a good movie, or any movie would be the thing to do...just to get some popcorn!

Worst movie EVER - Disney's Fantasia ... First movie (and only one of two) that I have ever WALKED OUT on.

As for Chick Flicks and Guy Movies, I'm a big fan of both. Love action/adventure as much as romance.

I love Against All Odds, Overboard, Everafter, Shakespeare In Love, The Bourne Series, The Net, War Games, Fast & Furious ... way too many to mention.

If you have a chance, look for the DVD of the SiFi Channel mini-series of Dune. It encompasses the first two books, and was really well done.

The worst movie I ever saw was Master of Disguise, starring Dana Carvey. My son thought it was great, but I got tired of the recurring fart jokes.

OK, sorry, I didn't actually answer the question. We're solidly on the guy movie bench here at Casa AWV. Fav movie is probably the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and we also have the Star Wars films and the Indiana Jones movies in our DVD collection. We're also huge Disney animation fans. Unfortunately, almost all of those we used to own on VHS and we sold them at a garage sale because we never watched them any more.

I tried and failed to watch Dune. A former boyfriend once ORDERED me to read the book. 33 years later, I still haven't.
