"What are you in the mood for?", he asked.
"Hmmmm... something... a little wild maybe", I responded.
"Wild? Okaaaaayyy....", he pondered.
"Can we incorporate something cold too? It's been so hot lately, I'd like something cold", I afterthought.
"Okay, how 'bout this? You like this?", he offered.
"Oooh, interesting. Pretty outside the box, doncha think?", I noted, "I think I might like more of this".
Magnum and I were settling down to watch a movie and didn't have any particular titles in mind. All we had at our disposal was Netflix, and Magnum found this "Christmas story", unlike any Christmas story we'd ever seen.
It was certainly creepy, with moments of comic relief. I think I liked it, but it's hard for me to say. I mainly wanted something cold to help escape from the oppressive heat, and this does have some nice Finland-in-winter scenery.
It was so hot in the house, though, that the laptop we were streaming through kept overheating and shutting off. Really, we must have had about 10 "intermissions"!
But I think I enjoyed it well enough, as far as escape movies go.
Curiously, there are no women in this movie. Usually that's a red flag for me as I suspect it to make things too much from a man's point of view (think Tom Clancy), but that wasn't necessarily the case here. I think there may be a reason there were no women, but I don't know what it is.
Anyway, if you want something different. Something cold. Something outside the box. I suggest you watch "Rare Exports". If you want a nice Christmas story... Forget it!
