In order to find important cultural differences in our relationship, and myself having the strong desire to work for the good of science, I often engage in discussions with my husband to further understand his perspective on things we experience together.
I have asked him in English about what he thought of some films we watched together. From his answers I have compiled a list of 1 line movie reviews. Please keep in mind he is a very special guy, and his answers reflect his specialness.
“Now I know what it feels like to be a father.”
2. American Sniper
“I don’t know why it had to end so sad. That’s depressing”
“OMG WHY DOESNT THE GHOSTS STOP?”
5. The Lego Movie
“Everything is awesome”. (note: This has been his catch phrase since watching it. Several months ago.)
6. Pacific Rim
“It reminded me of my childhood.” (I think he is an Ultraman fan)
7. Jurassic World
“It was really interesting, but I don’t remember why”
8. Guardians of the Galaxy
“Lots of good action but boring.”
9. Evangelion 3.0: You Can (not) Redo
“Anyone who says they understand this is lying.”
Cowered in fear and did not receive a comment.
“The songs I didn’t really like, but it is memorable.”
“The scale is 3 from 1-5 because it’s just okay.”
“It sucks. The story is totally different from the original story.”
14. Back to the Future
“Kissing his mom was not the point of the movie.”
Some great insights from this, but even after all this time it is hard for me to predict what he will like or not. The biggest surprise so far is how he turned into a big Les Miserables fan after seeing Hugh Jackman sing.
