Help!! While I sit here and blog S is introducing Star Trek to our 5 year old E with an episode called "Man Trap". That is exactly what I feel like I'm in right now! I think "Man Dork Trap" would be more appropriate. E just asked what Vulcan was...I'm trying to block it out. He is also asking if they are aliens. S had this discussion with him earlier today trying to explain that alien does not only mean an outer being in space. It just means someone who is foreign. E told him that it isn't right and he is smarter than him or anyone else. We will have to show him S's next US immigration card where he checks the box for alien. I think E will be scared. Perhaps we can use this as a discipline tactic and tell him that if he doesn't stop whatever we are doing S will use his alien powers.
Anyway, this reminded me to write a post about my experience at the movies last weekend. I propose they come up with a new movie rating "NP" which stands for "No Point" and warn people before they waste $10 and 2 hours of their life. We watched Wolverine and this movie should have been given the NP rating. The movie had nothing positive that happened during it and it had absolutely no point. Not even the fact that Hugh Jackman and his au natural poto were in it made up for how bad the movie was (yes, it was THAT bad). It's not that I don't like those types of movies- I thought that Iron Man was great. I think I was the only chick in the movie "Transformers" and I loved it and thought it was one of the best movies EVER. I can't really chalk this up to the fact that I don't like "guy movies".
The worst movie I've ever seen is "There Will Be Blood" and this movie definitely deserves the NP rating. I was furious after watching that movie because it was so bad. It is a long movie and I kept watching it hoping that something was going to happen and it never did. In fact, it had a horrible ending.
As much as I am not a big sci-fi fan I think Star Trek would have been MUCH more enjoyable than Wolverine last weekend. If anyone else knows of movies that should be rated "NP" please let me know.
