No, no, I’m not sick (anymore than usual), the title is a reference to a “Family Guy” epsiode, in which the lead character finds himself enjoying “chick flicks”.
Now, you must realise I still love my sci-fi. There’s always room for a good adventure flick, and war movies will always have a place in my heart. But I’ve realised that, ever so slowly, I’ve started liking so-called “chick flicks”, films full of human drama that are supposed to be aimed at the ladies.
It’s not all my fault. One of the great contributors to my newfound disease is Dame Helen Mirren. You’ve got to admit, that is one HECK of a contributor! Just as great today as she was 50 years ago, and still a gorgeous woman to boot. One of the hottest film scenes, in my humble opinion, is in the movie RED. There stands Helen, in a white evening gown, flawless hair and makeup, blazing away with a fifty-calibre machine gun. Beautiful women competently handling heavy artillery is always a win in my book – no bimbos in bikinis frightened by a .22 semi-auto, thank you. Gimme Michele Rodriguez flying an attack helo in “Avatar” ANY day! (See, I do still appreciate war and action sci-fi films!)
So I guess I’m getting old. Human interaction is trying to replace rapid-fire action. I guess this means I’m finally … (sob) … growing up! NOOOOOOOOOOOO!
OH, look, “Patton” is on later. World War Two, baby! Woohoo! 😀
