Not back to normal...yet.

But at least someone's enjoying the nice weather! XD

Kristen's still not feeling 100 percent better. We're suspecting she has had salmonella all this time; I can pinpoint a particular dish we made last Wednesday that she probably got sick from. She hasn't been ill enough to warrant seeking medical attention, but the whole experience has been...unpleasant. We've been trying to amuse ourselves by recording terrible movies with our cable DVD-R and watching them at night. Our most recent choice was the god-awful mid-90's bomb known as Tank Girl.

I've realized that the only bad movies I enjoy watching (rather than being bored to tears) have featured no less than three actors I recognize. Four or more is a guaranteed win! For example, The Legend of Billie Jean had Helen Slater, Christian Slater, Yeardley Smith and Peter Coyote. I enjoyed that movie a lot in spite of how awful it was. Later on I recorded and watched Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, which was one of those movies that was so bad it wasn't even funny. The only actors I recognized in that were Kristin Kreuk (barely) and Neal McDonough (only saw him in Tin Man). I mean, come on...Taboo's not really an actor, is he?

What a minute...why was Michael Clarke Duncan in that movie?

Anyway, The Legend of Chun-Li was too horrible to enjoy. Next!

Tank Girl, in spite of being, hands-down, the worst movie I've ever seen in my life, has four or more actors I recognize: Lori Petty, Naomi Watts, Malcolm McDowell (an automatic win for a hilariously bad movie!) and....Ice-T as a humanoid kangaroo. Ice-T as a kangaroo version of basically the only character he's capable of playing was the highlight of the film for me. :D

So yeah...Tank Girl was fun. I don't really enjoy low-rent bad movies that feature no-name actors. Half the enjoyment in watching bad movies for me is watching actors I know making complete asses of themselves.

That is a cute doll! I don't recall the last ones I saw that I would call the worst ever, but a 1982 remake of Cat People was some of the most painful things I have sat through. I had no idea it was so much unlike the original movie, when I never saw the original movie! They also had no idea what to do with the plot, it had so many sick ideas like inbred species as love on anyone else turned them into felines!

Thank you! That was really the last day the cherry tree looked good, so I'm glad I was able to take a nice picture of Lien sitting on a branch before all the flowers fell off.

Ha ha ha ha! I've seen that version of Cat People! Or at least, part of it. I remember Malcolm McDowell walking around completedly naked in a dream sequence at some point, and Ed Begley Jr. getting his arm ripped off by a tiger in a cage (but was it a tiger?). That was one terrible movie! :D I didn't realize that it was a remake of an old movie.
