Movie Review Monday

I didn't watch a movie this weekend, I've been incredibly busy with other things such as editing and INDEXING (so close to being done. So close).

However, the spouse and I have been watching Full Metal Jousting. Have you seen this? It's on the History Channel.

The first time I saw commercials for it, I rolled my eyes. Pfft! Just what we need, another reality show with a sport no one could care about. Yet, I got sucked in! There is nothing more entertaining than watching two guys try and knock each other off a horse with a long stick. Call me sadistic.

There is a lot of technique involved in the joust, too. More than you'd think. You can't just whack your opponent anywhere you deem fit (though that happens a lot). They have a huge metal plate on their shoulder that you are aiming for. As you can imagine, it takes quite a bit of skill to hit the sweet spot. And there are real injuries involved. It was fun!

If you haven't had a chance to check it out, do. It's very entertaining. Would I ever do it myself? Hell no. But I'll gladly watch other knock the crap out of themselves!

Hubs and I LOVE Full Metal Jousting. Tonight's the final I believe. Often we watch in the re-runs, but we'll definitely make the time to watch tonight.

Actually, I believe last night was. We DVR it, so I know who won. But I'm keeping my mouth shut! :)
