Since I've been home, I've been really working the bejeezus out of my Netflix membership. The result? I am no longer two-timing my man, I'm more like four-timing him. Sorry Sweetboy.
Usually, I only have one movie boyfriend at a time (I have appropriately confessed all of this to Sweetboy beforehand since I know he reads my blog) but times are a changin'...
Russel Crowe was my first (Gladiator style), but I learned about his unfortunate habits of smoking and beating people with phones. He had to go. He introduced me to one of my favorite beers - Shiner Bock. Funny the things that rub off on you from relationships.
Then came Matt Damon in the Bourne movies. Still tasty but found out he was a smoker too (I heard he quit?) - he's on the back burner until the next movie comes up. I'm sure we'll rekindle our romance then.
Christian Bale in Batmans Begins. Need I say more? He's an incredible actor and the movie was great; however, I think it would have been better with more scenes of him working out (queue him jumping out of bed and doing some push ups). Really.
I can't forget to mention Daniel Craig as James Bond. I was so disappointed when I heard they chose him instead of Clive Owen. Then the movie came out...Clive Owen? Who is that? Good grief. Hello Mr. Bond you beautiful man you. The shower scene...be still my heart. He can take care of the bad guys and has a sweet side? Sign me up! oh wait - I've got one of those already (air kiss to Sweetboy)!
As of last week, Gerard Butler became a permanent fixture on my laminated list. He was delicious in 300. Despite the fact that the movie should have been named "Ode to Beefcake" - and that means a favorite in my book - the violence and gore was a bit much for me to handle. HOWEVER, last week Neftlix sent me P.S. I Love You and it was such a sweet, lovely film that reacquainted me with Gerard in a softer light.
Hmmm...I see some commonalities here: Gorgeous beefcake who kick ass, are good men and fiercely love their women - sounds like someone I met about 17 years ago who is sleeping in my bed as we speak...I'm a lucky girl indeed. :)
Who are your movie boyfriends? Heck - let's be equal opportunity - boyfriends/girlfriends? Don't worry - I'm certain your they don't read my blog :) so you're safe! Spill it.
