Two Movies For Tonight

Looking for a good movie to watch tonight? Maybe you'll have some extra time at home this weekend to watch some movies. Well search no further here's two movies that are worth your time and will entertain you.

The first movie... Independence Day.

I love this movie. This past weekend we went to the theater very excited to see the new Independence Day Resurgence. It was awful. Those words don't even convey how awful the reboot is. It is so awful I wanted to get up and walk out at 20 minutes into the movie. I've only done that once it my life so that should tell you how awful it really is. Don't waste your time, don't waste your money... don't go. Trust me. If you loved the first one they absolutely butcher the new one.

Independence Day stars Bill Pullman as President Whitmore. When these strange alien space ships enter out atmosphere we learn that we are not alone in the universe. President Whitmore decides to show them that we want peace and sends a helicopter to greet one of their ships. We are immediately met with unfriendly fire. At the same time, David (Jeff Goldblum) realizes that the disruption in the world's satellites isn't just a coincidence it's hiding a countdown. David and his father make their way from New York to DC to warn the President that the world is in grave danger. Captain Hiller (Will Smith) planned his weekend out very differently. He was going to stay in Los Angeles with his girlfriend and BBQ. Now he gets called back to base to defend the country. What happens? Watch and find out.

Favorite Quote- "You don't actually think they spend $20,000 on a hammer, $30,000 on a toilet seat, do you? - Julius.

The second movie... National Treasure.

National Treasure is one of those movies that anytime I see it's on television I stop and end up watching it. I think it's clever and includes real history. It always makes me want to visit Philadelphia. I've only ever seen the airport.

National Treasure follows Ben (Nicholas Cage), an American historian and the youngest in a long family line of treasure hunters. When he was a boy his grandfather told him the story of a huge treasure being hidden the Founding Fathers and the free masons. Thirty years later Ben is still searching for that treasure as a grown up. Along with him is his sidekick and computer wiz Riley. When they learn that their next possible clue to the treasure could be hidden on the back of the Declaration for Independence, Ben and Riley begin coming up with a plan to see the back of it. One problem... he isn't the only person trying to get his hands on it.

Ian is his competition and he has less than pure intentions on how to get it and his intentions on the treasure vary far differently. So off Ben and Riley go to the National Archives to meet Abigail and tell her their story. She believes their crazy and wants no part in their plan. Ben realizes he's going to have to steal the declaration to continue. Once that happens no one can plan for what happens next. Watch and find out what happens.

Favorite Quote- "Why can't they just say, 'go to this place, here's the treasure spend it wisely."- Riley.
