Thursday Movie Picks: Treasure Hunts
This week's theme from Wandering Through The Shelves is about treasure hunts. I had to laugh when thinking about this theme because it's so not my bag. My husband loves the National Treasure movies and I'm just solidly meh about them. I tried to think outside of the box a little, and not use franchises like that, Indiana Jones or Pirates of the Caribbean. Here's what I came up with.
1) The Da Vinci Code - I never read the book this was based on but I really loved the movie. I suppose I wouldn't had I actually gotten around to reading it, but until then I'll remain blissfully ignorant and enjoy myself with this.
2) Da 5 Bloods - While not my favorite Spike Lee joint, it fits the bill of today's theme. The film was about far more than just the gold.
3) King of California - This is a cute little film where Michael Douglas tries to convince Evan Rachel Wood there's gold buried under their local Costco. It's been a while since I've seen this, but I remember enjoying it.
