: Yes Chris, sure sounds like you're lucky. Jo, I can relate... And in our case, since my husband knows that regarding movies my taste is different than his, he often has that attitude "Well, if she likes it, I bet I'll dislike it." Oh, how was he lamenting when I finally pushed my just bought copy of "Smoke Signals" into the VCR, and that even though he got me the gift certificate to buy it. "Do I really have to watch that?" he complained, but there was no escape and the computer was occupied by our kid, so he stayed. And, guess what, he liked it... Even though he didn't admit it right away. :-)
: Now, making the circle back to the movie star: A while ago, I was browsing the "FAQs" on a fan-page for Michael Greyeyes, where he had answered lots of questions. Can it be true that there is a man with such perfect taste? Favorite book "Siddharta", likes to stay home and watch movies with his wife, wants to travel to Italy because it's romantic (What, no off-road vehicle involved, not because of the beach-life, but because it's ROMANTIC?!), likes to dance Latin because he can do that with his wife,... Awwwww...
: Lucky wife.
Hi Petra and Jo,
Yea, Chris is lucky. And it's not just husbands but other household members, you know - like the ones you gave birth to, that like to declare " OH NO, not again!" whenever certain videos (LOTM, any DDL or ES movie) or movies try to sneak their way onto our TV. My 12yo had a lovely little display of attitude Sunday night when I was lucky enough to catch Stolen Women airing. I believe it was a 200th viewing of Austin Powers she had in mind, but Mom overruled, and the attitude slowly ebbed as she got caught up in the movie and liked it.
I also checked out MG's fan website, and in the FAQ section I found his and his wife's favorite period movie was none other than LOTM and DDL is one of his favorite actors. He specifically admired his performance in In the Name of the Father(another fav of mine). I was also quite impressed with his dance training and other credits. He looked familiar in the movie, but I didn't realize where I'd seen him before. I haven't seen Smoke Signals yet, but have wanted to - so I hope to catch it on video soon.
