on boy movies vs. girl movies
March 4, 2010 § 1 Comment
the other day i was reading another new movie blog by a friend of mine, who’s a guy, and i was surprised to realize how… girly the films i write about are. are they girly? not that it really matters, but i hadn’t considered myself particularly girly. yes, i like breakfast at tiffany’s and pride and prejudice, but i also love lord of the rings, die hard, bourne, james bond, fight club, superbad, freaking 300..
i figure my blog is only hardwired for a certain amount of testosterone though, and with a house full of girls (me, my mum, two sisters vs. my lonely warrior father) my film choices naturally tend to gravitate towards the classics and films with hunky actors and dancing or cooking or flying over africa or something like that. i mean i’m always up for a dda-dda-dda-dda movie (my father’s onomatopoeia for gunshots, said in korean and really fast), but i’m thinking i’m not going to spend a lot of time blogging about rush hour 2 or something (though i secretly think it’s pure awesomeness).
so what i’m trying to say is, i suppose i’m probably a lot more likely to write about the magnificence of gilda than batman begins (although i am dying to see this famous thriller by christopher nolan, memento.. read more here: Future to Present!), so read what you wish. after all, whether a film is supposedly girly/manly or not doesn’t matter to me, if it’s good and strikes a chord i’ll love it just the same. and so should you! boys, don’t be stupid and refuse to watch casablanca or something, and every girl should watch the good, the bad and the ugly. :)
