Friday: Funday is all about the way you decide to have fun. Having fun for you maybe curling up with a good book or binge watching your favorite series. It’s up to you!
Dawnies today I was a bit down. I try to be honest about that. Major depression is a monster. It almost got the best of me today, but I said no way!
Today, I had fun by watching some oldies but goodies. I watched The Golden Child and Stargate.
My grandfather loved comedy. Red Foxx and Edie Murphy was his favorite comedians. During our family nights, we watched Red Foxx and Eddie Murphy films. One particular night, we viewed The Golden Child.
The Golden Child was released in 1986. The filim was about a Tibetan boy who was kidnapped by an evil man (Numspa). A cop (Murphy) was quote, “The Chosen One” destined to save the child. The fate of the world hanging in the balance.
Eddie Murphy had many punch lines in the film. I loved the fact that a child was chosen to save mankind.
One fun fact abou the film is that the Golden Child, who was a boy was actually played by a female actress.
Stargate was released in 1994 starring James Spader and Kurt Russell. The movie was about a linguist who was hired to translate Egyptian symbols. His translations led archeologists, scientists, and the military to understand the translations were not Egyptian at all. Archeologists revealed what they had found years before (Stargate), and that the military had a planned mission on the other side.
Daniel (Linguist), went along after he promised he could translate an unknown symbol in order to return them back home.
I loved this movie since I had seen the old Star Wars films. The idea of space travel through a portal was a unique idea in my book. I went on to view all Stargate films, and televisions series in my early adult years.
What did you do for fun today?
