I was 'dragged' to see this last night, and I was shocked and appalled at how much I enjoyed it.

For what looks like a bad summer movie cast-aside, there was far more plot then I could give a Bruckheimer film credit for. Nic Cage even looked like he was enjoying himself instead of just collecting a paycheck like with his past few films. Someone really put a good effort in this film.

I'd almost compare it to THE GOONIES, but for a slightly more mature audience.

How mature? My 9 year old wants to see it, and if it gets me out of seeing Polar Express, I'm all for it.

Oh man, Polar Express was pretty nice. Don't be such a Scrooge. The bell probably doesn't ring for you anymore, either.

I always found the Polar Express story to be a little disturbing as a child. I can't remember why, though. I think the new Tim Allen Christmas flick might be the one to check out.

I was thinking about going to see National Treasure until I saw Cage on Letterman. He was dressed in all leather with a white tank top. I didn't need to see that before I went to bed.

National Treasure was pretty good for an action flick, but the critics were right- some parts are just way too implausible, in terms of how he escapes situations.

I only meant more mature, in that there was more plot to keep up with. There wasn't any over blown violence or language or anything like that. In fact, I don't even recall any harsh language or blood in the whole film.

This was probably the best action film I've seen for a younger audience in a long time.

I saw National Treasure and it was surprisingly decent and entertaining. It didn't offend me and I had a good time.

Here's my official review, courtesy of Hybrid Magazine:

"I always found the Polar Express story to be a little disturbing as a child."

I find the trailers for it pretty disturbing. If I was a kid and I woke up with that freakish mannequin-lookin' thing telling me to get on a big weird train, I'd run for the hills.
