The Men Who Stare at Goats

I'd like to think I have pretty good instincts...I usually know what I will or will not like and while it may seem boring I stick with it. For instance movies. I do not like being scared..nothing about that feeling makes me happy not even a little bit. So I refuse to watch scary movies. The last movie I went to see the usually understanding husband told me this particular movie would be intense but not scary...more of an action type movie...needless to say I do not think I Am Legend is an action type is scary. I spent the majority of the movie with my face hidden in his shoulder not looking at the screen. I do like chick flicks, basically anything with Hugh Grant is good for me. That's what I like and that's what I watch. But last night I was peer pressured into seeing The Men Who Stare at Goats. Now I love to look at George Clooney who just gets better looking with time. But since I saw the first preview I've had no interest in seeing this movie. I mean seriously it looks pretty dumb from the preview...and I can't be the only one to think that! Back to last night in order to not be the odd ball, and because it wasn't going to be scary I had no way out. I went to the movie and oh what a surprise it wasn't good. There were a couple of funny parts but it's not something you would laugh at the entire time. When we get out of the movie theater my friends all say they were disappointed. *Thank Goodness* I am so glad I was not the only one who didn't like it.


  1. Oh I agree with you! It looks so dumb!

  2. see - I'm the opposite I love scary movies and I think this movie looks entertaining as all get out. (I'm not planning on seeing in in theaters unless the boyfriend says he wants to go - our rule... his choice he pays, my choice I pay). ;) I will however probably watch it when it makes it to on demand. I'm a sucker for a good chick flick though too so it's all universal :)

  3. hhmmm maybe that's it...maybe people who enjoy scary also enjoy this type of movie. :)
    I'm sure it will be out on DVD soon enough Kelly!!
