Recently I've been feeling the inclination to extend my movie viewing habits and take in some of those 'men' movies. I feel I should watch them so I understand what it is that makes many men refer to them in hallowed voices.
This interest came while watching 'You Got Mail' (what's wrong with 'You Have Mail'? - sounds much nicer) when the Tom Hanks character writes to the Meg Ryan character that she should 'Go to the mattresses!', a spine-improving, courage-inducing quote from 'The Godfather'.
So I've watched 'The Godfather', moved on to the first 'Die Hard' and am slowly ploughing my way through the Epic above, irritating theme whistle and all. I'm still working it out, but it has a lot to do with vicarious winning, I think. Still piecing my thoughts together.
