We went and saw National Treasure tonight and boy was it long. My husband really liked the first one and so I agreed to go see the second one with him. To me a good movie MUST have eye candy. Not necessarily hot guys. Beautiful scenery. An eye catching set. ANYTHING to keep my brain occupied. A hot guy is preferred to keep me glued, but a beautiful mountain will do just fine. This movie had none. And I mean none. Nicholas Cage has one good movie. Valley Girl. The rest stink. His wig is so bad. His hair color is so bad. His droopy face and stupid clothes gagged me! I was like Oh my Gosh!!! Ed Harris was a wrinkled mess, though botox would have been worse. This is why I do not go to movies. There is no eye-candy anymore. Oh of course there is eye candy for guys. The girl in the movie is always 20 years younger than the leading man. AS IF. Ok so if the guy is loaded, THEN MAYBE. You can always find a young girl with a tight butt, fake boobs and no need for botox because she is only 18 and playing a thirty some year old with dozens of college degrees. I know I am uptight. But these things really cross my mind as I am watching these stupid shows. I don't need a man to be young. I just don't want to see an older man look as though it took them hours to get him ready for each scene. Hours of botox injections, hours of hair dye and too much tanning are oh so obvious. Where are the MEN in Hollywood. Why do we have to watch girly men!!! Or overhauled men. I would rather see Nicholas Cage with a bald head and grey hair and wrinkles. To me he looked like a cartoon.
The movie was fine. I guess the plot was clever. But who wants clever plots when you can have the earth move under your feet because of TOTAL HOTNESS! Now I know you are all wondering how my husband feels about this. But I am not worried about him. He gets eye-candy at the movies. This is what I am talking about. Women's rights are really about equal opportunities of half naked good-looking men to gawk at. We get NONE!!! I am done with movies. Writers strike. NO. Viewers strike. Quit putting out CRAP with ugly guys and MAYBE I will be back! Give me crap with Hot guys and I will consider a come back. I AM OUT!!!
