And now for yet another reason

that I am an awesome wife —

I took my husband to see the third Resident Evil movie. And I let him buy me popcorn. Oh, and I only kind of mocked him for trying the nasty movie theater concession stand “chili dog”. (helpful tip: if the “chili” comes squirting out of a dispenser and the employee has to reach in and squish the plastic bag inside the dispenser to get it to squirt out, your chili dog *might* not taste very good. I’m just sayin’.)

As for the movie, I was entertained for most of the hour and a half, but I have a pretty high tolerance for bad movies/TV shows. Once I stopped trying to understand WHY the characters were doing what they were doing, I even kind of enjoyed the suspenseful zombie-ness of it all. I also enjoyed watching how the main character lady (whose name I am not going to attempt to spell and whose character name I don’t even kind of remember) gets to have her face airbrushed into perfection in nearly every shot while the rest of the poor schlubs have to look all dirty and grungy and nearly normal as they fight the living dead. Hey, when there’s really no plot to follow, you need something to look out for.

Best Wife Ever. That’s me. (yes, I have been leveraging this at home, don’t you worry.)

    You and Amanda must be alike in many ways.

    Not only in the facet that you both claim to be the best in the world, either.

    She actually ENJOYS going to see these types of movies with me. I was sick at her house this past weekend, and we watched tremors 1 and 2… wanna talk about bad movies sometime? I live for October on the Sci-Fi channel. Killer Clowns from Outer Space, anyone?

    Mila Jovovich, btw. (At least I am fairly certain that’s how you spell it.) She was hot in the 5th Element, but I haven’t really seen her around since then. Perhaps I have not been looking hard enough.

    As for the RE3 movie, I’ll have to rewatch the first 2, and then we’ll probably go see it. It sounds like a ripping good time! One of those movies where you walk in, shut your brain off for 2 hours, and go home. WOO!

    Milla Jovovich (and the character is Alice), but who’s keeping score? I’ve only seen the first of these movies, but I really enjoyed it at the time. I’m also a big fan of the video games so that helps some, too.

    Zombie movies are right up Meaghan’s alley, so one of these weekends we’ll have to have a massive RE-fest. I’m sure she’ll like them.

    Love the pic’s of you and Mike and the kids. 360 done made look all parentally. nice since mine is pretty much dead (i bought a dvd player, how sad is that?). also, to truly test your bad movie watch ability, watch first “Firefly” and “Serenity” if you’re not already huge browncoats like I am, and then “the Thirst” (horrible horrible vampire movie w/ Adam Baldwin) and “Slither” (Nathan Fillion, which I bought b/c I love him and James Gunn but have yet to watch). Also, buy at least 3 copies of Serenity : Collector’s Edition prior to the end of Sept. In return, I’ll buy a crockpot large enough to hold a suitable meal for a trip between Roch and Chicago for several people.

    Now if you really want SciFi camp, then you must see Jesus Christ, Vampire Hunter (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0311361/). “The first testament says ‘an eye for an eye.’ – The second testament says ‘love thy neighbour.’ – The third testament … Kicks Ass!!!”
