Okay, in between football games, I’ve been watching some movies with Alexis. If that doesn’t qualify me for a medal, I don’t know what would. She started off with Sweet November with Keanu Reeves and Charlize Theron. Mushy. Tragic. No car chases. No special effects. None of that mattered to Alexis. Personally, my favorite Keanu Reeves movies were Speed, Point Break, Matrix, and the all time classic–Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure.
The next entry in this weekend’s viewing was definitely a step up even if aimed at a younger audience. We watched the G.I. Joe movie on pay-per-view. Lots of car chases, explosions, sword fighting (I could have given them some tips), and metal eating nanites out to destroy Paris. Evil doers lurking beneath the polar ice cap, and Dennis Quaid’s voice almost as deep as it was in that dragon movie he made years ago with Sean Connery.
Then today I missed part of the pregame shows while she watched a chick flick with John Cusack, Julia Roberts, and Catherine Zeta Jones. Christopher Walken stole the movie, if you ask me, but the Alexis didn’t. Ask me, that is.
Did I mention she’s counting the days until she gets to see Avatar? And maybe Sherlock Holmes?
At least I got to watch the Seahawks win today. My poor Chiefs . . . let’s not go there.
