Andrew has always been a Die Hard fan. He had them all on videocassette as a kid, and if he "ever finds the bastard that stole Die Hard II" from his house, he would "kick some serious ass." Sure, babe, sure. So, with that much admiration for John McClaine, we couldn't miss out on the newest installment.
I LOVE to go to the movies. Not just see a movie at home--I love to GO to the movies. Love the escape of the movie theater, the darkened room, and the two hours of being drawn into another world. I do NOT like horror or really gory flicks, but I love me some movies nonetheless. Of course, I don't go quite as often as our pre-kid times, but we still get to sneak away to the movies at least once a month (thank you Mom!!). In June, I've been lucky to see a few more--including this great one with the girls. LOVED IT!!
There is only one problem with seeing a movie with Andrew--must he deconstruct all that was incorrect? Must he find the flaws, especially if it is a technical one and point them out to me? Can't I just enjoy my ignorant bliss and believe that some big machine can do this crazy bit of technology? Of course not--I'm married to a computer geek! So, even though he enjoyed today's most recent flick, he couldn't help himself from pointing out the flaws. Just. can't. stop. himself. Sigh.
Now, sometimes, I like when he does it because he will find the things that the editors forgot to remove from a frame. Last night, he saw a pair of Converse shoes in the montage of shoes during the film Marie Antoinette! I thought that was pretty funny.
Oh well, not much more to say to this post except--"Yippie-kai-yay!" You remember the rest of the line, right?
