Mitu and Movies

01 Aug

And the epic adventure continues. I’ve left the Adirondacks and the corgis (sigh), but now I’m with Mitu! Yay! Wednesday we embark on our Epic Roadtrip O’Doom, but until then we’re occupying ourselves with packing, cranky Haley-cat and adorable little Maya-kitten, and movies.

Oh, the movies. Mitu watches a lot of movies, and she’s introduced me to many that I might not otherwise have watched. Many of them have been very good (Road to Perdition, etc.). Others have been…not.

Tonight we fed our inner film critics with The Librarian: The Curse of the Judas Chalice. Our inner film critics appear to enjoy(?) what is essentially the dietary equivalent of frosted celery. No nutritional value whatever, and tastes…weird. Okay, I haven’t actually ever eaten frosted celery, but it’s getting close to bed time here, so just go with it.

Memorable quotes (from us, while watching the movie:)

“But wait! Polio Man has found a perfect cast of the medallion in the wax!”

“But first, we must clasp hands in a manly manner while we scowl.”

“Yay, Newton!”

“I will yell!”
“I will yell louder!”

Things learned while watching this movie:

–Judas Iscariot was the first vampire.

–Also, all vampires are made of sand and ghostly skulls and fart fire when you stake them.

–But if they’re exposed to sunlight, they slowly drift away in a cloud of shimmery gold fairy dust. Or bishi sparkles. Or Edward Cullen’s dead skin. Clearly they’ve been reading too much Stephanie Meyers.

–Regardless, the fairy-dust-Edward-Cullen-skin vampire’s mortal boyfriend will sob like a baby while she dissolves into dead-bishi-fairy-sparkle-skin-dust. Or any other time he thinks she might be dead/hurt/have a papercut.

Noah Wile is hot, but holy flaming hedgehogs, this movie is bad.

…aaand now Mitu has decided that we must watch Private Valentine: Blonde & Dangerous. Because there was a preview for it on the Librarian DVD. And I quote:

“I think you’ll find that this movie is a real classic of film, and you’ll be so thankful I made you watch it. By which I mean, after The Librarian, I don’t think things can get much worse…”

      Well, what else are two self-respecting, burly, leather-clad Russian henchmen supposed to do? 😛

    I would like to point out that the Private Valentine movie was almost entertaining, which may have had more to do with the fact that it was after midnight than Jessica Simpson’s acting skills.
