Harrison Ford, the thinking woman's mature age crumpet, actor and movie star. He and I spent a great couple of hours this morning, tramping through jungle and swashing over waterfalls, big waterfalls. I don't care what critics have said, 18 years on and Indiana Jones still rocks my boat.

I loved the way he goes from prissy archaeology professor to scruffy adventurer and looks both parts to a tee. The action is frenetic and only the fans would get all the in jokes from the first three films. Five stars from me but then I'm probably the only person in blogdom that thought "Hellboy" was a hoot.

As a change from viagra, Russians and fake rolex watches, I'm now getting weight loss spam. The email today gave me a word that should be in the next urban dictionary....fadmongery.
If any word would describe the idiocy that is diet and food management for lard arses, it's fadmongering. I expect to use it a lot.

LOVED Hellboy here,but then we love Ron Perlman in anything.
Really enjoyed the latest Indiana Jones flick, even with the obvious hints of leaving the door open for offspring spin-offs :)

Better lardarse than lardbrain.

You are a gazelle -to me.

JahTeh said...

Rh, the bees will hunt you down for stealing their honey to spread on your words. I would love to be a gazelle but it's more like a Gnu.

Jayne, Hellboy has a fanclub of two and they're talking of a sequel but unlike Indiana I don't think it will be a goer. I loved it that Indy and Marion started bickering the minute they laid eyes on each other...true love.

"I don't care what critics have said, 18 years on and Indiana Jones still rocks my boat."

That's because his girdle's making him itch.

I'm with you, Jahteh. I loved the sly Star Wars joke they threw in at the end as well. They didn't try to mask his age too much. I told my dad (who is around his age) that he should see it because it's full of 'age-appropriate jokes' and he replied that he was glad I was thinking hard about what I show my son. 'No', I said, 'YOUR age's appropriate jokes'. He didn't laugh, but he will.

Like it - fadmongery.

I get 'enlarge your penis' spam; 'earn $10,000 a month' spam and still the begging letter from Nigeria.

Yep, You can add me to the Hell Boy FC, if big-pistol envy counts for anything.

That's So Pants said...

Hi Coppie

You're not the only one. I thought Hellboy was a hoot. Loved Indiana Jones too. References perfectly weighted and it was nice to have Karen Allen back as well.

Rubbish! Butter me both sides, drizzle me with honey and Harrison will never ford your libido again.

JahTeh said...

Sedgwick, conquering you is no fun, everyone knows you're a push over. A woman only has to whistle for you and we know how to whistle.

Another Hellboy, I'm not alone. Pants, I thought having Marion back was one of the best things about the movie.

Hip, If I remember the guns were bigger than the ones in 'Men in Black'. I saw a preview of Angelina Jolie's new film and that was all guns but didn't look like it had much substance if you don't count her bazoombas.

Kath, I should refuse to talk to you, you led me to a chocolate blog that reviewed Marzipan in dark chocolate. I tell you I was 2 inches from the monitor with my tongue hanging out.

Did you look at Bumblebee during the film? I love the look on their face when the action is non-stop and they almost forget to breath.

Fleetwood, if his girdle's itching it's only because it's stacked full of the loot he made filming this. Maybe he'll donate some to the fund for ageing antiquarians.

"everyone knows you're a push over."

Yet another of your typos!

I'm not a 'push over', I'm a 'pullover' ... on a good night a comely suave cardy.

JahTeh said...

Sedgwick, the day I pull you over me, you'll end up fifteen feet away to be carried home in a bucket. I didn't watch 'Kung Fu' all those years without picking up a tip or two.

Lord Sedgwick said...

The old grasshopper witchcopper manoeuvre.

Step aside Mr. Heimlich.

Man oeuvre board!

I'm not sure that using the term "crumpet" to describe men is kosher.

It is generally used to describe women. And I think I have deduced the reason...
