Last weekend, my husband and I went to see Borne Legacy. Good movie. It started out slow but once it got going, it GOT going! Lots of action and suspense.. and a touch of romance. But what always gets my heart pumping are scenes where the strong, confident hero swoops in to rescue the heroine. I'm just a sucker for rescue scenes!! (You could probably tell from my books) To me, there's nothing more romantic, more thrilling than a man risking his life to save his lady love. To me, it defines the exciting differences between men and women.. the masculine protector and the soft, feminine damsel in distress. Now, I know this goes against women's liberation and everyone who says women are just as capable and strong as men, but I'm sorry, my heart doesn't swoon when a leather-clad woman barges in with machine gun in hand to rescue her man. It just doesn't do it for me. :-)
I guess I'm just an old-fashioned romantic, but I will never get enough of the knight on the white horse galloping in and fighting off the bad guy to rescue his princess. My heart will always beat a little faster. I will always utter a little sigh and long to be in the heroine's shoes.
What are your thoughts?
