Book of Secrets

We went into Anchorage yesterday and didn't get back until late, by which time I was so damned tired I couldn't see straight and went to bed about 9:30PM, which is why you didn't see a post from me yesterday.

During the day we saw National Treasure, Book of Secrets at the Century 16 in Anchorage.

I liked it, so did my wife and son. It's not as tightly plotted as the first one, and there are a few more characters to keep track off, and the basic premise of the story is, um, well, highly improbable - but still it's a fun movie. If you liked the first one, you'll probably like this one. The dynamic between Jon Voight and Helen Mirren is worth the price of admission. However, If you disliked the first one, you'll hate this one. Just saying.


  1. Took my Mom to see it Christmas day. All she had to say was, What's the Queen doing making this tripe?

    She's hard to please. Hubby and I enjoyed it. But you're right - disbelief must be suspended.

  2. Cam, it took me a minute to figure out what you were talking about - the Queen, Helen Mirren, duh.

    I love that woman, she's a beautiful, incredible actress, but if your mom though NT:BOS was beneath her - well, you might mention that Mirren was in Caligula.

    Um, on second thought, maybe not.
