Hmm...Nachos!

Sunday, July 13, 2008

We're going to go see Hellboy II this morning. I loved the first one, and I hope the second lives up to its hype.
I'm a fan of Ron Perlman, and I thought Pan's Labyrinth was simply brilliant (and more than a little disturbing), so I'm optimistic.
After that I'll be dinking around, doing chores and such, so have a nice Sunday in my absence!

Should I understand from the title that you intend to eat Nachos at the movie theater? with that unholy cheese-like substance that isn't really food?

Please! I beg of you! Noooooooo!

Nathan, that's a quote from the first movie.

Although I have to admit that unholy cheese-like nachos is a guilty pleasure of mine...

That Unholy Cheese makes a great addition to baked macaroni and cheese.
In another life, when i was a short order cook, i used to get the GIANT cans of it, and used to to beef up the homemade mac and cheese that we were then living on.

It's like orange melty salt.

Hmm...orange melty salt!

Nathan, seeing as how I'm having that-time-of-the-month stupid cravings... orange melty salt sounds yummy right now.

Mmm! Salt lick!

Luckily I've been content so far with three quarters a container of guacamole followed later by Ben & Jerry's.

I loved this movie. Love, love, love.

It combined the visual interest of Pan's Labyrinth with the smart-alecky goodness of Hellboy.

"Aw, crap."

Hee!

Ewww, I am a food snob who doesn't do fluorescent processed cheese stuff. Plus I'm not a huge salty food person.

Real nachos, though, made with tortilla chips, beans, mexican ground beef, chiles, pico de gallo, melted colby jack, with guacamole and sour cream... mmmm. Definitely mmmm.

Dammit, now I'm craving them and hub can't eat them.

Jeri, I'm an equal-opportunity nacho-lover. I'll eat the orange melty salt variety, hereafter known as "food pr0n," or the tasty, tasty alternative you describe.

"Hmm...Nachos!

We went to see Hancock (you'll have to check my place later to see how I liked it.)

There were about 5000 12-year-olds lined up for Hellboy II.

I'll go see it when it's been out a while.

Janiece Murphy said...

Nathan, that's why we go to the first show of the day (in this case, 10;15 am.). The teens aren't really out in force yet, and the tickets are much cheaper.

Jeri said...

We went and saw it today too. Did you see us? We were in the back row. We waved! ;)

Seriously, we enjoyed it too. I particularly liked the darker hints, I think they're more true to the underlying story.

Hellboy is such a great character.

Speaking of Hellboy, I've been on the fence about picking up the comic.

Anyone have an opinion?

Tania said...

The comic is awesome. You should get the animated series too. Of course, my former employment at a comic shop should be taken into consideration and noted that I may be biased...

Having neer worked at a comic shop, but thoroughly enjoying comics, I'd say you should definately check out the Hellboy comic. I've read maybe half the series, and the movie (at least the first one, can't wait to see #2) does a good job of staying true to the Hellboy character and themes. I'll have to check out the animated series.
