I was quite ill yesterday, AND since my new laptop crashed 30 minutes after I got it (no mangoes were involved this time. ALTHOUGH, I had just finished a Mango Tango Odwalla before it was delivered... :-O), I decided to watch a movie. I decided on The Great Escape, which I had not seen in quite frankly, at least, 25 years. (Although, I had heard quite a bit of it since then-- coming through the walls of my next-to-me brother's bedroom.) It's such an awesome movie. And so, utterly quotable. Of course, THEN, I couldn't watch anything that didn't have Steve McQueen in it (it's a curse! ;-D). And I wasn't really in the mood for Magnificent Seven, because....
SPOILER ALERT: After watching TGE and seeing James Coburn and Charles Bronson make it to safety, I really couldn't handle Mag7 and watching them get killed while STINKIN' HORTZ BUCHOLZ LIVES. Yeah. Anyways. END SPOILER ALERT.
AND, since my oldest brother moved out last month (and took all his Steve McQueen films with him), there was nothing else to watch....except Wanted: Dead or Alive. All three seasons of it. Of course W:DoA is one of THE coolest westerns EVER. So, it was perfectly fine. I put a disc in on play-all. Currently, I am still watching Wanted: Dead or Alive.
It's kind of addicting.
So, Josh Randall is a bounty hunter. And THE coolest bounty hunter ever. He carries around a sawed-off shotgun and brings in crazy-scary outlaws. And he basically does it just for the money. Yeah. I mean, in one episode he refuses to help some nuns save another nun who was taken hostage by some outlaws...BECAUSE THEY CAN'T PAY HIM. That's just Josh Randall (he does of course save the nun and catch the outlaws by the end...sheesh.)
Anyway, I have harrible headache and am going back to my room to watch more westerns. Have a wunderbar day....and really...I WOULDN'T suggest watching any Steve McQueen. Seriously.
