I like movies. I like most genres of movies. I like drama, comedy, musicals, old movies, oh man, I could go on all day.
There are few genres I can’t find love for. Porn, weird seventies movies that play with lighting and make it feel like you’re on drugs, that kind of stuff.
My favorite kind of movie, however, has to be kind of the slap stick comedy. Like Mel Brooks, he’s a good example. He’s kind of what I want to be when I grow up. I mean I don’t know anything about his personal life, other than knowing Alan Alda and his wife and he’s Jewish, but I want to be funny. I want to be the kind of creative person that can come up with dumb jokes that are just dumb enough to make people laugh. He acts, he directs, he writes. What doesn’t this man do? I’m sure he could give you some answers to that question, but I will ignore those answers. Given, I have my creative moments and I have my little funny moments, but…..nothing like this man.
I kind of want to be in his head. What’s his thought process, what’s in his head when he visualizes things? I have that thought about a lot of people, Mel Brooks isn’t the only one.
If I had to pick a favorite movie….”Robin Hood: Men in Tights”. It’s the first Mel Brooks movie I ever watched, it’s almost the first more “advanced”, I use that word loosely, movie that I really got the humor. The little music numbers are hilarious and I think some of the one liners in that movie are amazing.
I know my life is a little boring since I’m talking about Mel Brooks and my grandma’s hands and the such, but that’s me like or leave it, whatever. I’ll still love you.
