We’re staycationing, and the best way to enjoy it of course is to get our movie¬†on. Here’s the list more or less. Some of these movies I’ve already watched and were chosen from conversations I’ve had with Jill. Sometimes we talk about current issues and I reference people, usually lawyers for some odd reason. I then download the movie so she can see for herself.
Brewster’s Millions – (Watched two days ago) The movie’s premise was the question Richard Pryor’s character had to deal with. While on his last leg as an aging minor league baseball player, a rich uncle he never knew passed away leaving him an inheritance of $300M on the condition that he first spend $30M in 30 days. Easy you’d think, except (from the Wikipedia page) ‘he may not own any assets that are not already his, and he must get value for the services of anyone he hires. He may donate only 5% to charity and lose 5% by gambling. And he is not allowed to tell anyone, even Spike (his best friend). Brewster decides to take the $30 million challenge.’.
So ok it has not escaped my attention that the top 4 movie geeks post is well – visited,
with thanks perhaps to my legions of relatives and the fact I have inserted a small applet that clicks it every few minutes to make it’s ‘hits’ increase. Ehem. Anyway, so I’ve decided to make a new list, featuring some other movies I’ve left out. And so without further ado, herewith for your perusal:
How in the HECK could I have forgotten one of my favorite movies of all time, the classic Office Space – with pre – MTV Ron Livingston, a very early hot and sexy Jennifer Aniston and directed by Mike Judge. Aniston’s ‘Kung Fu? I love kung – fu!‘ phrase (she was talking about movies) is probably the only thing I actually remember her saying word for word even after years of ‘Friends’ and her other movies – the sexiest words a geek can ever hope to hear from someone who looks like her. At any rate, this movie brings me back to my early tie – wearing days programming stuff in VB and hating every minute of it, working, as Livingston’s character says “just enough not to get fired”.
