Speaking of CINEMAtters..
Everyone has that one family member
You know what i'm talking about
the one that you love to hate to watch any sort of movie with..
well in my case EVERYONE of my kin falls into that catagory
in some way or another
and admittedly it might (but probably not) be partly due to me
after-all i have a hard time
playing peanut gallery
To begin my little analysis i'm gonna start with my familys head honcho
That's more like it..
Okay so this lovely lady is Moo Moo
lover of all things Pixar
she is not THAT bad to watch movies with..
while they are still going
immediately after they end can be a different story
the movie was set in the south, deep south, anywhere near the southern states, any character had even a HINT of a southern accent, or if fried chicken and/or collard greens was any part of the movie..
let's be clear..
my mother is from NORTHERN Idaho
(which ps. is different from Idaho as a whole.. it should really be it's own state)
she was raised no where near the southern east coast
so we're really not sure why she likes to go through the following 2 weeks seemingly possessed by Della Maes backwoods inbred cousin Cleetus..
we're not even sure if her accent is Southern or Retard..
all we know is it's kinda like a Miley Cyrus movie
as soon as it STARTS we want it to STOP..
'Dad' you not asked a million questions you'd have never figured it out..
oh wait you still don't get it..
or as we sometimes call him
unless he started the movie with you & pays close attention
his questions will be endless & he still will usually not 'get it' by the end of the movie..
however he doesn't just leave it at the credits
he'll take it with him & ponder it for a few days, trying to make sense of it
and then days later he'll bring it up & spell out the already spelled out movie..
at least he's persistant!! he always figures it out
he actually likes LOUIS LAMOURE movies..
as in the books weren't enough for him to realize
'holy heck i've read this same story 50 times over'
he has to WATCH that same song and dance too..
(be honest people.. reading more than one of his books is like
wiping before you poop
it don't make sense..)
Coley coley trolly bumholey
where do i start with this poser
(sidenote: she wants to be me.. she doesn't even know it.. but i'm like her hero)
actually she is probably my most favorite person to watch stuff with
she is an excellent addition to my peanut gallery
her only flaw is she doesn't like watching traggic love stories
which doesn't fly
cause they are like my favey
(i'm a sadist)
also.. she is superb at movie quotes..
especially of the Disney Genre
(yes i'm giving them their own genre)
& she can remember the names of even the smallest insignificant characters
(yes sometimes i wonder if she is slightly autistic & thats her tell..that & phone numbers)
yup.. this nutsucks included in this blog too.. seeing as he's part of our gene pool now.. can't keep him out.. can't hold him down
Phillbilly's achilles heel is he likes any movie..
okay that's a bit of a broad overstatement
Phil likes any movie that any NORMAL self-respecting human wouldn't..
as long as there are fast cars, big explosions, bad accents, impossible fight sequences, & next to no plot
he is one happy camper..
oh and he loves the movie
p.s i love you
(which triggers my involuntary gag reflex)
the piece de resistance
the biggest reason for this seemingly reasonless blog
okay so brooke has selective goldfish syndrome..
she can watch a movie
than 100 times..
yet anytime she watches said movie it's as if it's a new experience for her ENTIRELY..
this is best exemplified when she watched horror films..
the whole time she'll be like
'IS HE BEHIND THE DOOR???!', 'DON'T GO IN THERE HE MIGHT BE IN THE SHOWER', 'ITS HIM ISN'T IT? HE'S THE BAD GUY HUH???'
(remember she's already seen this movie multiple times)
or i always love it when she cheers on the characters
"RUN RUN RUN!! GO GO GO!! HURRY YOU CAN MAKE IT!'
they can't make it..
they won't make it this time just as they haven't made it the last 10 times..
she really has a reoccuring problem with giving the characters false hope..
'Ben' is this getting over?
Ben, while also being very adept at movie quote battles, is very poor at being the butt of most of our cinema related jokes..
which is ridiculous cause we are obvi hilarious..
but trust that this is no fault of ours
he needs to learn to suck it up
and take multiple hits for the team..
it's kind of hard to really put a finger on what makes it hard to watch movies with Ben..
mostly cause he watches few movies with us
he mostly avoids us like we are the plague
(the plague of awesomeness)
roly poly OLY!
Lyv likes to fight me on watching movies she's never even heard of..
she usually moans and groans & throws in multiple
'this movie looks gay', 'amy i don't want to watch this, & "i already hate it'
before the previews even have a chance to be viewed..
she normally ends up liking the movies
(not all of them but most)
she can be extremely loud and mobile during slasher flicks..
for loooooooooong periods of time..
it get's to the point where you're like
'she's definetly used up her entire oxygen supply so how is she still making noise?'
even the characters in the movie are like
'chill small blond girl!'
she's made a habit of asking me key plot questions that could potentially spoil the ending
over and over until i answer her..
she gets upset at me for telling her..
making me the bad movie buddy
(i just give people what they want)
