on movies

When I was a kid I used to like watching Arnold Schwarzenegger movies. He was huge, rides a cool bike, packing in a shotgun, with an accent and some kind of cigar in his mouth. I thought he was cool. Well, to be honest, I still think he is. On screen, that is. I do not know much about his real life anyway because I was more in awe of the characters he portrayed in his movies. But when I was a kid my cousins and I used to imitate him, minus the shotgun and the cigars of course. I love his Terminator movies and watched all of them over and over again. I don't know why but I was more into action movies when I was a kid. Must have something to do with my father who used to rent only English action movies when I was growing up. He disliked watching sappy movies. It was either action or comedy for him which I also like. I think my mom is right, I have so much of my father in me it is scary, lol. I am glad he likes American movies though because it was more fun and unpredictable than the local movies and it helped me learn the language.
