April 12, 2014: Bad Movie Day

I got up this morning and went down to the basement and worked for a few hours.   I was actually very productive and got a lot of work done.  Did a little work on learning Chef too.  I am just getting started with that, it has a bit of a learning curve.

This evening Dominica chose G.I. Joe 2 as our first movie of the night.  It was horrific.  Absolutely ghastly.  One of the worst movies that I have made it through in some time.  I have no idea what compels people to watch this stuff.  I was quite disappointed to have spent time watching it.

After that bad movie, Dominica discovered that I have never seen Wayne’s World which I had intentionally avoided in the early 1990s because I never found the sketch from Saturday Night Live or, really, Saturday Night Live itself, for that matter, to be entertaining and had no interest in seeing this movie from it.  There are so many memes and quotes from the movie that I did not feel like I was missing anything.  So we watched it and I was definitely right to have avoided it.  Not really entertaining at all and no plot.  Very boring and unmemorable.  I’m very surprised that any quotes from it became so well known because it was not funny at all.  And I like Mike Myers in the years after that in movies like So, I Married an Ax Murderer and Austin Powers.  But this was not very good.  Better than G.I. Joe 2, though.  But that is not saying much.
