Movies For Guys Who Like Movies

I'm the kind of guy who never buys the same bottle of whisky twice. I like to always keep something new in the bar. Right now I'm sipping on the new Royal Lochnagar Distiller's Edition, a whisky I have never before purchased, but am enjoying immensely.

However, I am finding that as I get older I am less interested in new music. I am less interested in new movies. I just want to listen to and watch the things I am already familiar with. They comfort me. They help me through the cold winter weather. I am getting old. That's what old people do. They're not up to speed with pop culture.

All time greatest albums?

1) Pavement - Wowee Zowee

2) Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugar Sex Magik

3) MF Doom - Mmm....Food

4) Deerhunter - Microcastle

5) Tears for Fears - Songs From the Big Chair

At least, those are the five albums that I could listen to on repeat and never get tired of.

Best movies of all time? In this order:

1) Ski School

2) Roadhouse

3) Kickboxer

4) Bloodsport

5) Rambo 4 (I am watching this right now, hence the motivation for this post)

I could put these movies on a 24 hour loop and I would never get bored. If they are on TV I will invariably watch until the end from whatever point I tune in at.

Whisky, however, is an entirely different animal for me. I do not want to taste the same thing over and over. I want new stuff. New products. New flavors. New producers.

I want more.

Pass me that unopened bottle, please. John Rambo is telling the missionaries that they have no business in Burma.
