My Mom and the Movies

One of the neat features on Twitch is their so-called Twitch-O-Meter, where Twitch writers post something a little more personal, be it sentimental or humorous. The latest installment, by Peter Martin, is quite good, and focuses on memorable moviewatching experiences involving the rest of the family.

It got me to thinking about similar experiences. My favorite family-related viewing moments involve my mom. When I was in high school, I discovered three wonderful things, things which forever shaped me: Mystery Science Theatre 3000, kung fu movies, and Monty Python and the Holy Grail. My mom watched all of them with me, and to this day, she still laughs about the exploits of Crow T. Robot, those wacky ninjas in Chinese Super Ninjas, and Holy Hand Grenades.
