    Post National Treasure

    OK, I know this has been out for awhile, but I wanted to see what people thought of it. I LOVED it. Nicholas Cage was perfect, and Sean Bean made the perfect villain. All the high-speed chases, and riddles, and treasure. **sighs dreamily and wishes that Hollywood would make more movies of this type even though it's kinda cliche** Some people thought it was silly, but it's a great family movie. Riley, of course, was my favorite character. The music was really good, too. I've got the whole soundtrack memorized. . .The only thing I didn't like about it was at Ben's dad's house, when they needed more lemons, they pulled out a whole drawer full of them. Cummon, people do not have that many lemons.

    It was alright. I suspect it held a lot of meaning to Americans. But I felt it was somewhat similar to The Da Vinci Code.
    Hey, buds. I haven't been here in, well, a good while. Last visited January 9th...Well, I'm sorry to have forgotten you guys. Some of you (Most, I hope) will remember me, and others will, I'm sure, have been told about me, and warned to lock up their daughters and wives. Heh. Anyway, I'm posting a thread about my future here, so...get over there. Read it.

    I actually did a movie review for this for the college paper...I gave it a 6/10. It was entertaining enough...

    Speaking of The Da Vinci Code, I'm too lazy to make my own thread so I'll say it here: director Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13) is making the book into a movie, starring Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou (Amélie, Dirty Pretty Things, A Very Long Engagement.
    Heh. I haven't seen the one, nor have I read the other.

    I still haven't read the book. The greedy publishers are holding out for money by not printing the book in paperback until the movie comes out in theaters, and I don't want to spend thirty bucks on a hardback of a book I probably won't read again for a couple of years. I have read the prequel Angels and Demons, and it's most likely just as suspenseful and entertaining.

    I've read all of Dan Brown's books except The Da Vinci Code - and I must say that Angels and Demons is definitely the best one. I agree with TBT that The Da Vinci Code seems extremely overrated, but I'm sure I'll get around to reading it someday (definitely not spending thirty bucks on it, though, agreed).

    The paperback version is all over the place here. I had my brother borrow it from his friend so i could read it. Personally, I find it slightly better than "Angles and Demons".

    Yeah, I know about the film. Bet it'll be rubbish.

    My thoughts exactly. I read the first couple chapters, but couldn't get into it. Now that I've read all the Sherlock Holmes stories, I can't stand to read any other "detective" solving a case. Tom Cruise, huh? That'll be interesting.
