Which 70s kid HASN'T seen this movie? And which girl didn't wish she was Sandy and wearing those tights. It even made me want to smoke. Seriously.
Tell me about it. Stud.
SWEEP THE LEG!
And then just like that - I forgot all about Ralph Macchio and it was HELLO Tom Cruise! Val who? I didn't even notice Val - I was so totally into Tom Cruise that I completely ignored the gay connotations and the big nose.
That's right. I'm dangerous...
And so begins my "thing" for Mickey Rourke. I'm going to stand proud and say that I still have a "thing" for him now. Yes, NOW. As in - how he looks right. this. minute.
Shrug. It is what it is.
By this stage in my life I had a hairstyle to rival Julia's (ie messy and curly). Well that's what I liked to think anyway. My fringe was about as high as Bobby Brown's and nowhere near as beautified as Julia's, but I was convinced.
50 bucks grandpa - for 75 the wife can watch.
You never, ever think a woman that fine would have hammer time in her shoe.
I mean really. What is there to say?
My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, Commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.
And continuing with my "thing" with Mickey. I give you, Sin City...
I loved these movies. Loved them. I'm not sure I could actually watch them again, but I thoroughly enjoyed watching The Bride take her vengeance on Bill and Cottonmouth. And Black Mamba. And Copperhead.
Oh and the whistle tune from the soundtrack? That's my ringtone.
I've killed a hell of a lot of people to get to this point. But I have only one more. The last one, the one I'm driving to right now. The only one left. And when I arrive at my destination, I am gonna kill Bill.
I know I've left a lot out and the minute I hit "publish" I'm going to be saying "d'oh! how could I have forgotten THAT one?!". But never mind.
So tell me. What would your movie timeline look like?
