APj has gone to the movies...and the store

Most of you know that I love to go to the movies. Some of you have had the pleasure (I think) of going to the movies with me....and a rare few of you know the best deal at the snack bar...

In addition to the Wizard of Oz (best alltime choice), some of my faves are:
The Dark Crystal


One of the first video's that Erynn saw. I think she was only 3-4 yrs old the first time (I know, I know, "Bad Mommy") -and she strode around the house making Mystic and Skekzie sounds.

Labrinyth


Let's all agree that David Bowie is hot. Even in those tight 80's tights....sorry, I've gone to the store....

The Princess Bride

"As you wish." Men should all adopt this line. It will get you so much further.

Stardust


I just went to see this tonight. Those of you who are mad at me because you wanted to go with me: never fear. I will go again. and again. This is a fabulous movie. Makes me in love with the movies all over again.

I watched the movie Wild Hogs last night w/the hubby (at home~he does not like going to the show) and LAUGHED OUT LOUD like an idiot.

A good thing about the daughter working at the video store~ she gets all the new releases first so she can preview them :)

As for going to the show, its a rare event around here. And to think I used to go every week-end as a kid living on base. $ .50 :)

being able to make skexis and mystic sounds is the best part of apres dark crystal, hehehehe.

oh and my favorite line in princess bride for pure romance value? there are few perfect breasts in this world. twould be a pity to damage yours.

For me it would have to be S.W.A.L.K. and CC Rider for the 70s, Jaws, Star wars for the 80's, Alien, Dead Man for the 90s, and Johnny Darko and a host of other that I can't remember this minute for this decade so far.

Of course I know the value snack. It's when you buy it!

My friends and I still occasionally, for no apparent reason, call the crystal. I just got Labyrinth on Netflix and watched it with Hailey. Bowie's acting is still well... he has very tight pants. I so want to see Stardust Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors. Check out www.neilgaiman.com for his cool blog.
