Not exactly a chick flick

OK, I detest diary-style blogging, but this is kinda funny:

We have Netflix you know, which is awesome, except for the occasional scratched disc. I came home the other night and my wife was grumbling about the 2 movies that had arrived. I look and see that we have the original Predator (with Ahnuld) and a documentary about J.R.R. Tolkien. So the next day at work, I checked to see if maybe something more "chick-flick-y", more suited to her taste, was next in the queue.

Not exactly.

The next movie is "Sword of Doom", a subtitled Japanese samurai movie. Possibly the ultimate anti-chick-flick movie, short of... well anyway... "SoD" had already shipped - we're in for samurai fun this weekend.

Well "Sword of Doom" has Toshiro Mifune in it, and she said she liked "Yojimbo" and "Sanjuro"...

Incidentally, whether you're into that genre or not - - you have to check out "The Twilight Samurai". Excellent film. Whoa, font change.
