This idea struck me recently, during the inventory of possessions that precedes impending nuptials. We quickly discovered, we simply had too much stuff. Or rather, as Mr. Gray would put it, I have too much stuff. Two of everything, to be precise. As neither of us easily absconds with recently purchased wares, we had to decide what we were willing to part with. Amongst many things, my smaller dining room set was the first to go. Remembering a good bachelor friend of mine whose apartment lacked this (in my mind) necessity. I gave him a call and offered him first dibs.
In our humorous attempt to quickly break down the set and pack it into his 5 Door M3, I made the discovery that he had never seen a single movie in the Terminator franchise. As Mr. Gray and I routinely stop and watch these films ANYTIME they are on television, this absolutely floored me. I grew up with the edited-for-cable versions of 1 and 2 and being a former resident of the Golden State, held a special place in my heart for the Governator and his films.

To my surprise, not a single student in ANY of my classes had seen or even heard of it. At around 23, I was 8-10 years older, but that’s hardly a different generation, right? I discovered that in these dynamic times, 5 years is an eternity. I have found I have more in common with my parents when it comes to movies, then kids born a mere six or seven years after me! Blown away that such a great movie that incidentally came out the year of my birth and featured actors anywhere from 15 to 25 years older than me could still attract those my age, I couldn’t believe that it didn’t stand the test of time as other classics did.
Coming next? You tell me what movies you watched over and over and I’ll highlight them!
