hello and welcome to my weblog. tonight some friends and i watched national treasure: book of secrets (2007)
in this film, nic cage is a borderline wife guy who, upon hearing an accusation that someone in his family conspired against a u.s. president, sets out to clear his family name by conspiring to kidnap a u.s. president. ed harris plays literally erik prince who is racing against nic cage to find a secret underground olmec city made entirely of gold which is, obviously, located in south dakota and also an escape room. every american president for ~130 years has, instead of stripping the city of gold, kept its location secret for reasons which you would think would need to be pretty compelling but which, as far as i can remember, are never explained.
nothing in this movie makes sense but it happens so fast that there isn’t time for that to matter. you let it wash over you; it is a rip current. this is peak bruckheimer. it plays to all the ancient lizard synapses and honestly i love that.
