I have mentioned our Netflix subscription and how it helps to spark interesting events in our house before. Generally Luke and I add movies we will both enjoy to our cue. I admit I add romantic comedy’s to the queue sometimes but always with the intention of timing their delivery for the weeks when Luke is gone on business. Not that I want to complain or anything but my dear husband does not extend me the same courtesy. Okay, so maybe I am actually complaining. I do not like horror films movies. I am not really a fan of horror type films that attempt to masquerade as a “thriller” either.
Film’s from any of the above mentioned genre’s with a bit of suspense thrown in, yes.
Horror films, no thank you I’ll pass.
I hate spending the entire length of a movie tense and jumpy waiting for the next uncomfortable, gross, or scary thing to happen. It isn’t that I am truly scared of what I see in a horror film, because generally I am not bothered enough to even think about a lame horror/thriller after I have seen it, but I certainly don’t enjoy watching it. Watching a movie is supposed to be a relaxing thing to do so I just cannot enjoy spending 2 hours of my life tensed up and uncomfortable on the couch waiting for something disturbing to happen.
So my dear husband throws movies into our queue without a thought , some of his picks I have loved, some I have not. Actually some of them I have refused to watch. Maybe I should just start letting some of my more “girlish” picks arrive in our mail without thought to Luke’s preferences and see how he feels about it.
At least while he is watching movies I could not care less about I have the perfect excuse to read or blog so I guess I shouldn’t complain too much.
Oh and by the way, if your husband suggests that you put The Machinist in your queue, just say no. Seriously. Christian Bale literally weighing in at 120 pounds is not something you ever want to see and besides moving painfully slow and not being scary it managed to make me feel totally uncomfortable and uneasy the entire way through. Yuck. I will say that I am not really what you would call a Christian Bale fan but either way be sure to pass on this film.
