was listening to the radio on the way in to work and the talk
was about the 10 worst chick flicks...some metioned were:

1) Beaches (never saw it)
2) Ghost (that was ok I like Demi Moore)
3) Dirty Dancing (Swayze looked like a dufus)
4) Steel Magnolias(never saw it)
5) some 'Ya-Ya Sisters' thing with Sandra Bullock(never saw it)
6) Sleepless in Seattle(never saw it)

couple of others I forgot...how many guys here were duped in to
watching a chick flick movie by their wives/gf/sig_other that was
just awful.

I like drama/suspense/action-adventure/espionage/political flicks with a twist.

big Denzel Washington fan..."Training Day" is my favorite movie followed
by "The Usual Suspects" with Kevin Spacey.

must have seen Training Day 7-8 times...Denzel is awesome...Ethan Hawke is good too.

I can't stand chick flicks.. they're all the same, either someone's good friend dies tragically at a young age.. or they fall in love only to be seperated somehow only to get back together in the end. *HURL*

Got a funny for you about chick flick though.. when we moved out here my little boy discovered Chik-fil-a (or however it's spelled) and I asked him where he wanted to go to eat one night and he said "chick flick". Took me a few minutes to figure out what he meant and I tease him to this day about wanting to go to chick flicks. :D

My personal favorite movies are cartoon and comedy with horror and action following very closely! I'm looking forward to seeing Jackass 2 this weekend. :shock: :lol: I think thats like a combination of all four of my favorite types.

that's cute...kids come up with the most imaginative expressions.
don't know if anyone here remembers Art Linkletter show, he
would ask kids questions...on one show one kid started telling the
audience about his uncle visiting his mother everyday after the
father left for work..... :shock: :shock: ....hmmmm

I'm not into chick flicks much. I'll admit to liking a few, but not many. Now Lonesome Dove and Tombstone I can watch all day.

Ghost was a truly hideous movie. Which is odd, considering there was some real talent in that movie, and yet . . . it really really sucked.


Funny this is the second time Rocky Horror Picture Show has come up for me this evening. My oldest son went to see Jackass 2 (which was great, he says) and the audience was filing in for Rocky Horror.

That is a GREAT movie. Origam, if you haven't seen it in a theater, do. And bring a newspaper, a cigarette lighter and a piece of toast.

there's a light. . . . shining at the frankenstein inn . . . there's a liiiiggghhhtt . . .

Not sure if you do any reading, but the paperback, Lonesome Dove by Larry McGurty, was one of the best books I've ever read [even tho there was what I considered animal cruelty in it]. You can get it used on Amazon from 1 cent onwards. I always buy used from Amazon.

That's one of the few books I have read. That and Comanche Moon. It was a book or two before Lonesome Dove. I've never seen a movie match up so closely with the book. It's nearly word for word. Have you seen it?

No, at first I thought you might have meant the sailing movie of the 16 year old who's boat was called Lonesome Dove. Is it on DVD?
