National Treasure

Postby dodecahedron on Sun Jan 09, 2005 1:38 am

just saw that movie last night with the wife (2nd movie since the baby was born heh :D ).

not bad at all, i must say. better than i had expected.

the blonde (forget her name) look hot! =P~
though she looked better as Hellena in Troy.

anyone out there a history buff?
do you know if any of the many historical references are based in fact? i don't mean about the treasure of course, or the "invisible map" on the back side of the declaration, but lots of other stuff mentioned throughout the film.

I enjoyed the movie as well.... far more then I expected to actually, but my expectations were rather low to begin with.

I'm not a history buff of any sort, and certainly not a US history buff... but I did recognize some of the things mentioned in the movie as having been mentioned to me in history class long LONG ago (in a galaxy far far away). So I wouldn't be too surprised if most of the reasonable stuff was fairly factual.
