The ultimate Borepatchian film

I just watched National Treasure and enjoyed it more than I've enjoyed a film in a long, long time.  It's the perfect Borepatchian film: full to the brim of history nerd clues and puzzles to figure out and with the happy story about happy people with happy problems ending that I like.  It also has Sean Bean (who doesn't die in this film; go figure) and is perhaps the most I've enjoyed Nicholas Cage since Moonstruck.  It's kid-friendly, too (as you'd expect from Disney).



If you haven't seen this then you're in for a real treat.  Highly, highly recommended.

Now if you could just figure out how to teach history this way kids might finally pay attention.

NT2 was pretty good, too. I really liked using the Declartion of Independence as a shield. That is actually what it was intended for.

Funny coincidence: I first saw it years ago, but we just re-watched it on Saturday.

It's a very fun film!
